Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan has had $10 000 stolen from her handbag.
The troubled actress feared she would be stranded in Hawaii after her $5 000 Chanel handbag - containing the cash, passport, plane ticket and probation documentation - was allegedly snatched from a car during a weekend break.
In audio obtained by gossip website TMZ, Lindsay could be heard panicking that she would miss a status hearing in her probation case, which is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Police called to the party
She can be heard saying in the tape: "...With my passport and my ID, so I can get back into the country and I have to fly in, to go straight to court...
"It was a white jeep. It was locked though, and someone must have gone through the back of the truck because there's no alarm and just taken it out.
"It was locked the whole time, parked right here... It just so happens that I left all my clothes and cash and ID and my plane coupon, which I have to get.
"I will fucking kill someone if I even have to get questioned [inaudible section] jail for a year."
The police were called to the party Lindsay was attending, and many people reportedly helped try to locate the bag, but found nothing.
However, the following morning, one of Lindsay's entourage spotted a "suspicious-looking local", who initially denied anything but later appeared with the designer handbag, which he said he had found in the street.
While all of Lindsay's documentation was still in the bag, $10 000 cash was missing.
Her spokesperson said: "Everything was still in the purse, except the cash she was carrying with her."
Lindsay is due in court for a probation hearing related to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) conviction.
