But now, sources are revealing that those worrisome messages posted to Twitter (that have since been deleted) weren't made by LiLo at all!
“It’s an extortion plot, plain and simple. They were able to access her computer immediately.”
The insider also added that the robbers have reportedly made contact with the 27-year-old actress demanding moolah in exchange for the laptop's safe return!
The starlet's management team has allegedly been trying to wipe the computer's memory remotely - because naked photos and correspondence between Lindsay and Hollywood big shots are reportedly inside!
We hope this isn't true, and the computer gets returned to its rightful owner ASAP!
