Lindsay Lohan claims she was responsible for handling Whitney Houston’s dead body during her four-month community service stint at the Los Angeles County Dept. of Coroner.
In a recent interview with “The Daily Telegraph,” Lohan talked about her time working 12-hour shifts at the morgue from October 2011 through March 2012, and how she was tasked with moving Houston’s body. From the interview:
“It was, as she puts it, “F’d up and inappropriate — because a lot of other people were meant to do it, and they were like: ‘No, they can’t handle it. Lohan can.’ It’s different for me than it would be for other people — like, no one would really have to work at the morgue in LA and roll a body bag for Whitney Houston.”
Houston died at 48 after drowning in a bathtub after a cocaine overdose in February 2012.
“I know it sounds really dark and strange, but I thought it would be a lot worse. I kind of regulated a lot of it. I’d tell people: ‘You didn’t fold that sheet properly,’ because I’m OCD with folding,” Lohan said.
Lohan had been sentenced with jail time and the 12-hour morgue shifts for her case of drunk driving and violation probation. She did an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer shortly after Houston’s death. Lauer asked Lohan if Houston’s death hit home.
“Not really. I don’t want to go there. That’s kind of a scary, morbid thing to discuss,” she said.
“But, I mean, maybe to some extent when I went to jail and being in that place, that was really terrifying for me.”
