Lindsay Lohan has officially pulled out of her “20/20” interview with Barbara Walters … and our sources has learned it was all because her new PR team didn”t want Babs to grill Lilo like a cheeseburger over the ongoing investigation in her car crash.
Lindsay was scheduled to sit down with Walters this week … and we”re told when she originally agreed to the interview, it was supposed to focus on her new movie, “Liz & Dick.”
But sources close to the actress tell us … in the past week, producers made it clear to Lohan that Barbara wanted to talk about her personal life as well … including allegations that she lied to police about the June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway.
We”re told Lindsay”s new PR team, Rogers & Cowan, felt it would be a mistake to put Lindsay in the hot seat … where she could possibly say something that could screw up her case … so they pulled the plug.
Sources tell us Lindsay feels terrible for canceling on Barbara, especially since she considers Walters a family friend, and wants to reschedule as soon as her team feels the time is right.
We reached out to “20/20” — so far, no response.
