Lindsay Lohan has been banned from the Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles after she failed to settle an unpaid bill.
The Mean Girls star was apparently under the impression that her Liz and Dick producers were going to cover the $46,350.04 hotel bill in Los Angeles.
She racked up the huge sum during a 47-day stay at the legendary hotel in June and July while she filmed the TV movie, the Daily Mail reported.
Lohan is said to have been shocked to learn about the charges and even more surprised to hear that she is not allowed to return to the hotel until they have been paid.
But the blonde star is said to be happy to cover the cost of the bill if her producers don’t pick up the tab.
Lohan ordered up room service meals, cigarettes and regularly used the mini bar during her stay but failed to pay the hotel for their services, forcing the manager to ban her from the premises.
In a letter to Lindsay obtained by TMZ.com, hotel general manager Philip Pavel wrote to the troubled 26-year-old on July 31, reiterating their “repeated attempts to resolve” the bill.
“As you are aware from our previous correspondences starting on July 8, you currently owe the hotel a grand total of 46,350.04 dollars in charges for your stay starting on May 30, 2012,” Pavel wrote.
The general manager of the hotel also informed Lohan that she would no longer be welcome on their premises.
“As we have made repeated attempts to resolve this pressing matter over the last few weeks without any resolution, I regret to inform you that we will no longer be able to extend any further credit for you to remain in the hotel.
“Please have all of your belongings removed from Suite 33 by 12:00PM, Wednesday, August, 1, 2012,” the letter said.
Not only was Lohan told that she would have to leave her suite at the hotel, she was also told that she could no longer use the facilities or eat in the popular restaurant.
“Furthermore, until we get the matter of your outstanding debt paid, know that we will be unable to host you on property or in the restaurant,” Pavel wrote.
Lohan was staying in the hotel while she filmed Liz and Dick – where she plays Elizabeth Taylor in the biopic of her life.
