Lindsey Lohan Stands Up Matt Lauer

KHQ.COM - Lindsay Lohan's been open about what life is like under house arrest – giving an interview to Life & Style, filming commercials – but when Matt Lauer from "Today" showed up at her Venice Beach, California, home, Lohan clammed up.

The New York Post reports that Lauer flew to Los Angeles on Tuesday to interview the 24-year-old actress, who is now due back in court because she failed an alcohol test again.

According to the Post, once Lauer arrived at her home, Lohan wouldn't come down out of her bedroom. An unnamed source told the paper, "They had been talking about it for a long time. But she refused to come down at the last minute. Matt was sitting in the chair on the first floor, waiting to do the interview with his crew all set up."

 Although the Post cites an anonymous source claiming Lohan was to be paid for the interview, a rep for "Today" denies that there was any "licensing or payment agreement of any kind." The "Today" spokesperson explains that "When [Lauer] arrived, she had a change of heart and wasn't prepared to talk for more than 15 minutes, as she had agreed, so the interview was canceled."

Lohan's rep concurs, noting that he was the one to pull her out of it. "No money was involved, and I was the one who called [the interview] off."

Lauer did address the situation this morning on "Today," telling viewers after a segment about Lohan's impending return to court, "Some of you may have heard that I was with Lindsay on Tuesday afternoon at her home in Los Angeles. We were supposed to sit down for an interview to talk about her current situation and her plans for the future."

At the last minute, Lauer continued, "Lindsay and her people did express concerns about the timing of the interview and it was canceled. I think we're learning more this morning about the reasons for their concern."
