Lindsay Lohan Not Doing Letterman’s Top 10 List — ‘Late Show’ Duped?

CBS says someone “purporting to be a friend” of Lohan’s contacted show about appearance

Lindsay Lohan won't be doing David Letterman's Top 10 list — and it looks like the "Late Show" was duped into thinking she would.

Hours after the show announced Lohan would read Thursday's Top 10 list, Lohan tweeted that she hadn't agreed to do so and apologized for the confusion.

Wednesday morning,  CBS released this statement from Worldwide Pants spokesman Tom Keaney:

"Lindsay Lohan will not be delivering a Top Ten list on Thursday’s 'Late Show with David Letterman,' as had been previously announced.  We made a mistake.  Someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's reached out to the show yesterday, allegedly on her behalf, and booked her to appear.  Clearly, this person was not authorized to make commitments on her behalf.  We wish Lindsay well, and look forward to having her on the show in the future."

Lohan's tweet late Tuesday read, "I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion…"

The timing of the appearance would have been interesting. Just Sunday, Letterman included Lohan on his list of Top 10 Grammy surprises ("Lindsay Lohan seen leaving the Staples Center with a Grammy-shaped bulge").

The actress is out on bail on a felony grand theft charge, to which she had pleaded not guilty.
