Lindsay Lohan’s claim in a new Telegraph interview that she handled Whitney Houston’s body bag while serving one of her several sentences in an L.A County morgue two years ago is false, so says the coroner’s office.
From The Telegraph:
In her private life things weren’t much better. The California courts had decided that her sentence for drink driving and violation of probation should include not only jail time but 12-hour shifts in a morgue. For four months, she worked from 4am to 4pm. It was, as she puts it, “F’d up and inappropriate – because a lot of other people were meant to do it, and they were like: ‘No, they can’t handle it. Lohan can.’ It’s different for me than it would be for other people – like, no one would really have to work at the morgue in LA and roll a body bag for Whitney Houston.”
Now according to an L.A County Coroner’s office official, Whitney’s body was never in a body bag from the time she was taken out of the hotel where she died to the time her body left the morgue. According to him, nobody under any court-ordered probation program came in contact with the body – which by the way was in the morgue for less than two days.
Whitney Houston died on February 11, 2012 inside a Beverly Hilton hotel room, and her body was taken away wrapped in a plastic and covered with a white sheet.
