Did Lindsay Fake Pneumonia To Get Out of ‘Scary Movie 5?’

Earlier today, Page Six reported that Lindsay really didn’t want to do Scary Movie 5 when she found out how much the script made fun of her so she faked having “walking pneumonia.”

“Walking pneumonia” is basically low-key pneumonia and since Lindsay knows you have to be sick to get out of a contract, that was the best idea she could come up with. Was “get in a car accident” not an option this time?

A source also claimed that Lindsay missed her flight to the set and skipped out on rehearsals and meetings.

“Lindsay missed every meeting she had for the film, including script reads and wardrobe meetings,” says a source, “Then she missed her flight to Atlanta on Sunday to shoot the movie. The producers had been getting signs Friday that she was a mess, and would not be fit to work.”

While we totally believe this story, because duh Lindsay Lohan can’t get through a film shoot without something weird happening (i.e. nip slip, car accident, trashes trailer, asks crew to strip naked etc etc I could go on…) BUT her rep shoots down the rumors.

“Lindsay is fulfilling all of her obligations for the film,” Lindsays rep Steve Honig tells Hollyscoop exclusively.

We can assume that means she IS showing up on time, getting on her flights, and definitely not faking a cold.

But it’s worth mentioning (since it had me “lol-ing”) that the main reason Lindsay didn’t want to do the Scary Movie shoot was because she heard she had to make-out with Charlie Sheen.

Haha I’d bail on that too.
