Lindsay Lohan is accused of stealing a bracelet that belonged to the late Elizabeth Taylor.
The 26-year-old actress played the screen legend in a US television biopic entitled Liz & Dick about her relationship with Richard Burton.
Lindsay is believed to have walked away with one of Liz’s famous jewels during filming last year.
The Mean Girls star became good friends with Elizabeth Taylor’s longtime nurse during production.
RadarOnline reports Liz gave her caregiver an expensive bracelet she cherished as a keepsake after her 2011 death.
“Lindsay immediately fell in love with the bracelet the minute she saw it and was very vocal about how much she admired it,” a source told the website. “A short time later, the bracelet disappeared from the nurse’s house… on the very same day Lindsay had been to visit.”
Lindsay was reportedly confronted about the missing jewellery and denied taking it.
The nurse, who has not been named, is said to have threatened to call police. One of Lindsay’s handlers is said to have returned the bracelet shortly after.
Lindsay previously spoke about befriending the nurse during an appearance on US television programme The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
“My entertainment lawyer, he knows the nurse that was with her for about seven/eight years, so I became good friends with her and she was on set most of the days I was working and she actually gave me one of Elizabeth’s furs, which was nice of her,” she said.
Liz & Dick was released on Lifetime network on November 25.
Critics panned the actress’ performance.
Lindsay's spokesperson has not issued comment on the report.
