The surveillance video of Lindsay Lohan in the Venice jewelry store was sold to Entertainment Tonight for $35,000. Lindsay thinks this will help her case find out why… The clip allegedly shows Lindsay walking out of the store with the necklace that could possibly land her in jail. And though the video is crucial evidence against the actress she also claims that the store selling the footage will actually work in her favor. According to Lindsay the store owners are just out to cash in on this whole thing and drag her name through the mud to make money.
But the owners of the store released a statement explaining why they sold the footage:
“There has been a tremendous amount of media speculation about an incident which took place on January 22, 2011 at a Venice, California jewelry store named Kamofie and Company,” said a message placed on the website that plans to stream the video. “Many individuals want to be able to see the video streams from the jewelry store’s surveillance cameras, and we have obtained the exclusive license for them. The tapes speak for themselves.”
