The D.A. in Lindsay Lohan’s probation case has a new target: Eleonore Lieven.
Lohan’s former assistant, who up and quit on the actress earlier this month after some tumultuous months trying to stop a slow-moving train wreck, may be called to court as a key witness in the case that could pit the boss against her former employee.
"The district attorney is interested in Eleonore,” a source said. “At the very least, an investigator from the D.A.'s office will be making contact with Lieven."
A decision has yet to be made, but if she is called to testify, sources say "it could be very explosive and could very well go badly, very quickly for Lohan.”

The particulars of that trip, and Linds' excuse for getting stuck in France and missing a mandatory court date, are critical to the D.A.'s case against her.
Lieven spent a panicked three days attempting to ensure the troubled Mean Girls star returned from France, after she claimed her passport was stolen.
The D.A.'s office reportedly "wants to gather specific information about the particulars of when the assistant was notified about the passport missing."
Whether Lindsay has been drinking or not is a separate issue.
