Late Show, Duped By a Phony Lohan Rep, 'Cancels' Lindsay's Top 10 Appearance

Talk about a Lo blow: The producers of Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday morning revealed that troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan will in fact not be appearing on the CBS talker as previously announced — and all because of a bit of “identity theft.”

“We made a mistake,” Worldwide Pants Incorporated said in a statement. “Someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay’s reached out to the show yesterday, allegedly on her behalf, and booked her to appear. Clearly, this person was not authorized to make commitments on her behalf.”

Can we get Kalinda to sniff around Michael Lohan’s cell phone logs…? Oh, I joke, yet TMZ later confirmed that Pops was behind the overture!

No X Factor for Lindsay Lohan

LiLo herself was the first to cast aspersion on her “booking,” saying on Twitter a few hours after Late Show touted her appearance, “I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman. I’m not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion.”

UPDATE: Letterman went on to comment on the snafu on Wednesday’s show:

Worldwide Pants, however, is leaving the door open for an actual drop-by from the headline/jewelry magnet, saying, “We wish Lindsay well, and look forward to having her on the show in the future.”

    So, anyone can call into this show and say “Hey, I’m a friend of Brad Pitt, and he REALLY wants to do the Top 10 List….” don’t they check first before announcing? Or are they that desperate for ratings? Doesn’t matter to me–I don’t care for either Letterman or Lindsey. (Fallon for the win!!)
