Columbia University student, Masha Markova, is demanding $10,000 in rental fees from Lindsay Lohan, whom she claims stole her $11,000 blond mink coat from a party in January.
The New York Post reports:
Masha Markova, 22, believed she had forever lost the prized jacket - a gift from her grandmother - while attending a private birthday party at 1Oak in the Meatpacking District in the early-morning hours of Jan. 26. The club was closed for a friend of jet-setting playboy Stavros Niarchos, Markova said. She added that at one point, she was seated next to Lohan, and recalled putting the mink in a common bin with other jackets. It was gone when she prepared to leave 1Oak after an hour, Markova said. Two weeks later, Markova flipped through the Feb. 11 edition of OK! Magazine and couldn't believe her eyes - Lohan was photographed the night of Jan. 26 wearing the very same fur coat...The pretty co-ed said that in the ensuing days, she surfed the Internet and found several paparazzi photos of Lohan wearing the distinctive blond coat hours after the birthday party they had both attended... That's when her immigration lawyer, Merrill Cohen, called Lohan's high-powered Hollywood attorney, Blair Berke, threatening litigation. Hours later, Markova said she heard from 1Oak. "They were very discreet, never mentioned a name or even the word 'coat,' " Markova said. "They just said, 'We're going to bring you something.' " The coat arrived at Markova's Morningside Heights apartment two days later. Reeking of cigarettes and booze with a slight tear in the lining, the fur coat was no worse for wear after a dry cleaning and quick patch-up. Still, she wants answers - and Lohan to own up to swiping her coat. "I don't see how it could have been an accident," Markova said."
Last year, Lindsay was accused of stealing $10,000 worth of clothing and accessories from model Laura Hastings home while Hastings was on a photo shoot. No big surprise that Linds is accused of stealing again; she is a druggie after all. Druggies steal…they can’t be trusted. Lindsay is a druggie…don’t trust her near your shit if you want to keep it.
