Lohan and alleged assaulter of Paris Hilton’s brother off the hook for now


Troubled movie starlet Lindsay Lohan is off the hook in the weekend beatdown of an heir to the Hilton hotel fortune at the Miami Beach mansion she was renting, police say.

At least for now.

And it’s partly because the alleged victim, Barron Hilton, socialite Paris Hilton’s little brother, isn’t talking to detectives.

“The victim in this case was very uncooperative at the scene, and continues to be uncooperative,” said MBPD spokesman Bobby Hernandez. “Detectives have been calling him since Friday, but he hasn’t been answering his phone and returning calls.”

That means, Hernandez says, that for now at least, neither LiLo nor Ray LeMoine, the house guest whom Hilton claims Lohan talked into attacking him, will be prosecuted.

“We're going to let the whole situation cool down then close the case if we don’t hear from the victim or anyone with compelling information,” Hernandez said.

“Obviously, there had been a lot of drinking going on at that party.”

Hilton, who has been talkative about the incident on social media, was beaten to a pulp about 10 a.m. Friday at 27 Star Island Dr., a $17 million mansion that’s often rented by celebrities who spend time in the Miami area.

On Tuesday, alleged attacker LeMoine posted a first-person account of the incident on a website.

“Barron got in my face and he wouldn’t shut up about his stupid family,” LeMoine wrote. “Things got so heated that he pushed me.”

rubio cuts the price

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has substantially lowered the sale price of his suburban home near Miami.

Flip-flop anyone?

Not really: The crib has been lingering on the market without much interest from buyers for more than a year.

The Republican senator, 42, put the property, at 6060 SW 13th St. in West Miami, on the market in November 2012.

At the time, he wanted $675,000 for the 2,649-square-foot, four-bedroom house.

The price just came down by $45,000, according to real estate records. It’s now $630,000.

The selling agent, who happens to be Rubio’s nephew, isn’t returning calls for a comment. Records show Rubio paid $550,000 for the property in 2005, but Rubio is spending more time in Washington as his profile within the party increases.

the brady bunch

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady can’t be happy about this:

Right on time for the Pats’ visit to Miami to play the Dolphins on Sunday, his wife tweeted a photo of her breastfeeding their 1-year-old daughter while getting her hair, nails, and makeup done — all at once.

Imagine the signs at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday!

The Instagram photo has created quite a stir online, and not just because Brady’s wife is Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Some call the photo “obnoxious and outrageous” while more supportive voices call Bundchen, 33, “a great example of a working mother.”

As they say in the NFL, you make the call.
