Lindsay Lohan misses charity painting project for court work

Actress Lindsay Lohan failed to show up for a charity painting project in London on Wednesday (18Mar15) because she was too busy carrying out her court-ordered community service.

The Mean Girls star fell foul of authorities in Los Angeles in February (15) when it emerged that the 240 hours of volunteer work she completed included meet-and-greet sessions with fans.


A judge ruled more than half of the work did not qualify as legitimate community service and she was told to carry out a further 125 hours in London, where she is now based.


On Wednesday, she was scheduled to join artist Domingo Zapata at the U.K. capital's Piccadilly Circus tourist hotspot to create a series of new paintings, which would be auctioned off in aid of a charity for victims of child abuse.


However, Lohan did not show up for the event, and a spokeswoman for the actress tells WENN, "She was at her community service."


The punishment is part of Lohan's sentence relating to a 2012 reckless driving case.
