LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Following news that Lindsay Lohan reportedly racked up a $46,350.04 bill at West Hollywood’s famed Chateau Marmont, a rep for the hotel is claiming a member of her entourage leaked the bill.
“Chateau Marmont places guest privacy as a core value and upholds this privacy with paramount importance. After investigation, it appears that a private correspondence between Chateau Marmont’s general manager and Miss Lohan was leaked by a member of her entourage,” a rep for the hotel hot spot said in a statement to Access Hollywood. “We are as horrified, disappointed and troubled by this occurrence as Miss Lohan surely is. Obviously, this is a private matter between one of our guests and the hotel and we will continue to treat it as such.”
The hotel’s General Manager Philip Pavel sent the actress a letter – dated as July 31 and obtained by TMZ – asking her to settle her bill and vacate the property.
“As you are aware from our previous correspondences starting on July 8, you currently owe the hotel a grand total of $46,350.04 in charges for your stay starting on May 30, 2012,” Pavel wrote. “As we have made repeated attempts to resolve this pressing matter over the last few weeks without any resolution, I regret to inform you that we will no longer be able to extend any further credit for you to remain in the hotel.”
He goes on to ask that Lohan remove her belongings from the hotel the following day on August 1.
Adding, “Furthermore, until we get the matter of your outstanding debt paid, know that we will be unable to host you on property or in the restaurant.”
Some of the 26-year-old’s standout reported charges include $3,145.07 for minibar expenses, $686 on cigarettes, a hotel candle costing $100 and an almost $2,000 bill for a meal at the hotel’s restaurant on July 4.
Lindsay was staying at the famed Hollywood haunt while she filmed Lifetime’s “Liz & Dick,” where she portrays the late Elizabeth Taylor.
An additional report from TMZ, claimed that a source close to Lohan said the actress was told that producers of “Liz & Dick” would cover her hotel stay.
A rep for Lifetime has no comment when contacted by Access Hollywood and a rep for the film’s producer, Larry Thompson, was not immediately available for comment.
Also, reps for Lohan had no comment when contacted by Access.
