It's not gonna be a family-rific Thanksgiving for Jodie Foster. Her father has been charged with SEVENTEEN counts of grand theft and seven counts of contracting without a license.
Lucius Fisher Foster III is accused of scamming investors out of more than $100k through a plan to build homes from Chinese shipping containers.
And get this, he used Jodie's name to build trust with his clients. So you know she's gotta be pretty pissed!

Looks like Lindsay may have some good news coming her way!
LiLo's lawyer Shawn Holley has brought in an expert to appraise the necklace that Lindsay allegedly stole.
Kamofie & Company priced the necklace at $2,500 despite purchasing it themselves for $850. IF the necklace's value is appraised at less than $950, then Lindsay's charge will be dropped to a misdemeanor.
We should find out more soon after Lindsay returns to court, but things def might be looking up for Ms. Lohan.
Do U think Lindsay's charge will be lowered to a misdemeanor? Or do U think that necklace is worth over $950?

This is understandable. Grand Theft isn't THAT serious after all…
According to a police report, Lindsay Lohan's assistant told police that she didn't return the "stolen necklace" earlier because she's been busy:
"Ms. Lohan was in possession of the necklace and wanted to give the necklace back to the store the day after she took it from the store, but she was very busy."
LiLo's assistant claims that Lindz TRIED to return the necklace before she went to the police station….but nobody answered the phone.
Clearly this is the jewelry store's fault! First, the store overcharges for the necklace, and NOW they're not answering their phones???
NOT cool, Kamofie & Company! Clearly, this case should be dropped immediately! LOLz.

Looks like Lindsay Lohan has a bit of history with Kamofie & Company, the jewelry store she "allegedly" robbed.
A police report filed four days before Lindz's grand theft incident says that she tried to walk out of the store with an 18 karat gold white diamond earring.
Here's what was written in the report:
"Ms. Lohan gathered her things and started to leave the jewelry store without making a purchase. Ms. Lohan's hair was flipped to one side covering the diamond earring."
"[The clerk] stopped her and reminded Ms. Lohan she was still wearing the earring. Ms. Lohan laughed, admitted to her mistake and removed the earring from her ear and returned it to [the clerk]."
Guess we'll see if this report hurts her case, or helps her. Maybe it will lead people to believe that she's just REALLY absent-minded, as opposed to a kleptomaniac.
What do U think?
