The Wanted stars have revealed what really happened on the night that Lindsay Lohan was arrested for allegedly punching someone’s lights out at New York City’s Avenue lounge.
The actress was partying with the British boy-band stars before the incident, though it seems the intense criticism aimed at her may be unfounded.
Speaking to MTV News at the Jingle Ball in Los Angeles, singer Jay McGuiness explained, “It’s a bit of a blur actually, but some sort of scuffle with a fortune teller. It was very odd. We actually carried on partying after that. It was reported that [the fight] was about Max, but I don’t think it actually was.” Initial reports had suggested Lohan punched a woman who got too close to Max (she was thought to be interested in the singer). McGuiness added, “But [Lohan] was a total sweetheart on the night, so our experience is quite positive.” In fact, Jay was so enamoured by the actress that he donned a “Free Lindsay” t-shirt when the boys supported Justin Bieber at New York’s Madison Square Garden a couple of days later. “I’m a little bit of an artist, so I got the old Sharpie out,” he explained, “And, yeah, after a small scuffle that went down, I felt very sorry for her. I wanted to cheer her up and I think she said she liked it, right?”
Lohan probably has bigger things to worry about in all fairness. She faces a third-degree assault charge in New York as well as three more counts brought by the Santa Monica Attorney in connection with a June 2012 car crash. In theory, she could be behind bars for Christmas.
