Guess she wasn't kidding about Lohan mayhem in 2010.
Celebrating the arrival of a new year on the island of St. Barth's, troubled star Lindsay Lohan says she was ripped off by her longtime best friend and sidekick.
That being Patrick Aufdenkamp, who goes by the unfortunate nickname of Pootie. "Patrick stole Lindsay's sketches for her new 6126 clothing line," says a pal.
We told you last week that Lohan's 6126 leggings line would be expanded to become a full clothing collection for Fall 2010. Apparently Pootie wanted in on it.
Aufdenkamp has been her "best friend" since she was 16, and has been frequently photographed with the actress at meetings related to her new fashion line.
Lindsay Lohan says Pootie shoplifted her designs.
"He is now running off trying to do his own line," a Lohan pal says, "And telling people he's going to fashion week in NYC on February 18 to debut his line."
"He always used her. Lindsay likes to see the good in people. She just didn't want to believe what a bad influence he was, how bad Patrick's energy was."
Lohan herself spoke to Us Weekly, saying "I should've known better," but "the new year for me is a new beginning! Health, happiness, success and love!"
Linds also said her relationship with Patrick Aufdenkamp is over. Hey, better late than never. As for her relationship with pants? That ended years ago.
