Lindsay Lohan’s teeth are causing quite a stink. People reports that the starlet’s smile was looking shabby on a red carpet in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and LiLo’s rep is firing back at media reports, defending his clients’ looks.
"Lindsay is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful women on the planet, and is regularly sought-after by some of the top photographers in the world to appear on covers of magazines around the globe,” Lindsay’s rep Steve Honig commented to CNN regarding the widely distributed (and disturbing) photos.
Honig would also like us to avert our gaze: “There are so many more important issues the media should be focusing on, such as homelessness, lack of funding for public education and relations between America and its allies."
RadarOnline tried to get to the bottom of the discoloration by picking the brain of Beverly Hills dentist Dr. Naz Tofigh, who said the issue could be heavy smoking and neglect.
"These are definitely the teeth of someone who doesn’t care because this is not a clean mouth," the dentist explained, adding, "There are a lot of stains on her teeth, the yellow spots are typical of people who drink a lot of red wine and smoke."
People magazine also points out that not only does the actress have decaying teeth, there are “nail polish streaks and blotches on her hands.”
These physical changes don’t bode well for Lohan, who has allegedly been slipping in her court-mandated community service requirement.
TMZ reports that LiLo has been kicked out of her community service assignment at the Downtown Women’s Center, and was reportedly asked to finish the rest of her 360 hours elsewhere. The story alleges that Lohan was not serving her mandatory hours.
Linds is due back in court this month, and TMZ suggests that she could go to jail if she actually did fail to carry out her required hours in a reliable fashion.
Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney (which supervises Lohan's case) told CNN that while he has seen online reports that the celeb is not complying with her court-ordered community service and psychiatric counseling, the matter has "not risen to the level of having our office involved yet."
The spokesman added that the probation office and the court have not contacted the prosecutor on the case about it.
Lohan is scheduled to return to court on October 19 for a status update hearing before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Saunter.
