The Venice jeweler accusing Lindsay Lohan of having stolen a $2500 necklace isn't the only pricey jewelry store tempting Lindsay with their pieces ...
Michael Lohan went to West Hollywood jeweler Roseark just two months ago to confront the owner, Kathy Rose, about some items she had sent to Lindsay while in rehab at Betty Ford. Lohan approached the swanky retail store and buzzed at the gate but the owners wouldn't let him in. Instead, a heated discussion continued via intercom.
Michael was asking the owners to stop sending jewelry to Lindsay (which he claims they'd be doing for about a year), trying to solicit her to purchase some of the pieces. As Michael has said before, it's common practice for jewelry stores and clothing stores to "lend" pieces to celebs and to "gift" items. But now he's revealing the practice of high-end stores sending items to a star, expecting they may buy a few of the pieces and return the rest. Only problem is that it puts the burden on the celeb to get everything back to the shop in tip-top condition and in a timely manner -- NOT the type of liability you would expect someone in rehab needs to be taking on.
Michael tried to explain that Lindsay didn't need to be buying jewelry while in rehab -- that she had other things to focus on. He was asking -- begging -- Roseark to STOP sending jewelry to his daughter but their response seemed dubious ...
Roseark carries bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings priced as high as $11,000. The jeweler could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.
