Did Lindsay Lohan give Matt Lauer the Cold Shoulder?

Matt Lauer left the “Today” show early yesterday to hop a plane to Los Angeles with plans to interview troubled star Lindsay Lohan. But as TMZ reports, he’s on his way back to New York, without an interview.

We’re told Lindsay was actually in the makeup chair when things went south. Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ … Lauer’s team blindsided them by saying the interview would be extremely lengthy because producers were planning to put it on “Dateline” as well as “Today.”

A “Today” show spokesperson tells TVNewser Lohan, “had a change of heart and wasn’t prepared to talk for more than 15 minutes as she had agreed, so the interview was cancelled.”
