The tabloids are buzzing with the news that someone recently got their hands on the password for Lindsay Lohan’s BlackBerry and soon her friends started receiving “disgusting and very mean messages that everyone thought were coming from Lindsay,” according to the starlet’s spokesperson, Leslie Sloane Zelnik.
Much to the glee of gossip-hounds everywhere, Ms. Lohan is accusing her one-time friend Paris Hilton of sending these messages. Not surprisingly, Ms. Hilton denies any involvement.
Update: Ms. Zelnik stated this week that Ms. Hilton is no longer a suspect.
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened to a celebrity. In 2004, a teenager managed to get a hold of the password for Paris Hilton’s Sidekick account and posted the contents of this device on the Web.
It wasn’t necessary to actually obtain either Ms. Hilton’s actual devices because all the information on each of these handhelds is automatically backed up on a T-Mobile server.
The culprit in Hilton case turned out to be a teenager who was later caught and sentenced to eleven months in juvenile detention.
