Fox: No Plans To Hire Lindsay Lohan For 'X-Factor'

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lindsay Lohan's escalating legal woes have been accompanied by rumors about the future of her career.

But a spokeswoman for Fox's upcoming "The X-Factor" says the talent show isn't part of the equation.

Ann-Marie Thomson said Saturday that producers have not talked to Lohan (LOH'-un) about joining the show, despite online speculation that the troubled actress was being courted as a judge.

"The X-Factor" is the creation of former "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell. It is set to premiere in the fall.

Lohan was arraigned this week on a charge that she stole a $2,500 necklace from an upscale Los Angeles jeweler.
