Lindsay Lohan Caused Trouble at a Birthday Party for Clint Eastwood's Daughter
It really, really IS time for LINDSAY LOHAN to go away. Because she was causing trouble AGAIN last week.
--FRANCESCA EASTWOOD . . . yes, she's one of CLINT'S daughters . . . was celebrating her 19th birthday with friends in a private room at a club called Bootsy Bellows when Lindsay showed up and WENT OFF.
--A source says she, quote, "came over and started screaming that Francesca should leave. She was yelling 'I'm a star, she's a nobody, get her out of here!'"
--When someone tried to get Lindsay to calm down, she became aggressive, and security had to ask her to leave.
--Lindsay's car almost hit a valet guy on its way out of the parking lot . . . but at least it was a friend, and not Lindsay, who was driving.
--This all happened last Tuesday. But on Friday, Francesca's boyfriend told E! News, quote, "We were celebrating . . . and it was a blast. Suddenly, there was a burst of chaos, and as quickly as it started it was over.
--"After the fact, we were all a bit confused about what just happened."
