David Letterman Duped! Comic David Letterman Tricked Into Thinking Lindsay Lohan Agreed to Appear on His Show!

DAVID Letterman was duped into thinking Lindsay Lohan had agreed to present the comedian’s Top Ten list on the show.
“Lindsay Lohan will not be delivering a Top Ten list on Thursday’s LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, as had been previously announced. We made a mistake,” Tom Keaney, a spokesman for Letterman’s production company said in a statement after a writer for the show tweeted that Lohan would be on the show.
“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. We wish Lindsay well, and look forward to having her on the show in the future,” the statement added.
Lohan, 24, would have appeared in Los Angeles on the New York-based show Thursday, a Late Night publicist said Tuesday when her appearance was announced.
“I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I’m not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion…,” Lohan tweeted in response to the news Tuesday.
Lohan – who is currently on probation for a 2007 DUI case and recently wrapped up a three-month, court-ordered stay at a rehab facility after testing positive for cocaine while on probation – has been the brunt of many a Letterman joke — she was featured in his Top Ten list called “Surprises at the 2011 Grammy Awards” delivered by the talk-show host during the Sunday award ceremony.
