Publicist: ‘Party Train of Denial is Over for Lohan’

L.A. power publicist Michael Levine is, not surprisingly, always happy to provide his opinion on news of the day, especially when it relates to the entertainment world.

Therefore, we weren’t surprised to see this statement hit our inbox after Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90-days in jail and 90-days of rehab on Tuesday for probation violations.

The party train of denial is over for Lohan and her potential employability will be devastated for years to come.

It’s unclear if Lohan has PR support at this time. Last we heard, she was working with Leslie Sloane-Zelnik of BWR, but Lohan “went on hiatus” from Sloane-Zelnik in March. BWR and Sloane-Zelnik did not respond to PRNewser requests for comment.

If anything, she could use some social media/PR counsel. Her Twitter feed is currently citing the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights and comparing herself to an Iranian woman who faced stoning for adultery.

Lindsay Lohan “On Hiatus” From Publicist

Maybe this explains all of the bad news around Lindsay Lohan lately. She is “on hiatus” from her publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnik of BWR.

The scoop comes courtesy of our former FishbowlNY blogger Amanda Ernst, now at Crushable.com.

We reached out to BWR and while Zelnik was not available for comment, a BWR staffer confirmed the hiatus, and that Zelnik “hasn’t been booking her or dealing with [Lohan].” When asked why, the staffer would only say “no specific reason.”

Matt Labov Leaves Hollywod PR Firm B|W|R

“What’s bizarre is that this follows B|W|R last month promoting [him] to co-president with Leslie Sloane Zelnik,” writes DeadlineHollywood.com’s Nikki Finke.

Labov handles Jack Black, Steve Carell, Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow, among others. Rumor is he’ll be taking all of this talent with him as he starts up his own shop.
