LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Lindsay Lohan’s mother has reportedly denied allegations her daughter was drinking over the weekend and claimed the SCRAM alcohol-monitoring device was set off after someone spilled a drink on the actress.
“She was at the MTV Awards and somebody spilled a drink on her leg, which must have set off the SCRAM bracelet,” Dina told the New York Post’s Page Six. “She has done absolutely nothing wrong and shouldn’t have to wear the bracelet in the first place. She is doing absolutely fine.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, however, according to SCRAM expert AJ Gigler, the company’s national sales manager, a spilled drink registers a steep spike, allowing the company to distinguish it from when a device wearer drinks alcohol.
“When somebody spills something on someone’s leg or arm or even directly on the device, it’s going to show a very stark and quick peak for alcohol detection, which compared to what is humanly possible through absorption rates is going to look drastically different than that of some ingested alcohol,” he said.
In related Lindsay news, a source confirmed to Access Hollywood that the actress has been approached to appear on the next season of Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” something Dina told People magazine was up in the air.
“Donald approached Lindsay about being on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ so we’ll see where it goes,” Dina told the mag. “I think it’s a great idea for her, but Lindsay has two movies coming up [‘Machete’ and ‘Inferno’], so I don’t know if Lindsay has time. It may conflict with her schedule.”
Earlier this week, Trump told Access Hollywood that he liked Lindsay, but said she needed to get things together in her personal life.
“I met her on ‘Saturday Night Live’… and she really seems to be a nice young lady, but she really has to get her life in order, otherwise it’s going to be too late,” he said.
NBC, the network behind “Celebrity Apprentice” would not comment on whether Lindsay had been approached.
