However, the Chateau’s management refused to comment, only saying to E! News: "Chateau Marmont places
guest privacy as a core value and upholds this privacy with paramount importance. This is a private matter between one of their guests and the hotel and they will continue to treat it as such."
The incident over the bill was first made public when Chateau Marmont general manager Philip Pavel wrote a letter to Lindsay detailing the situation and it was obtained by TMZ.
He wrote: "As you are aware from our previous correspondences starting on July 8, you currently owe the hotel a grand total of $46,350.04 in charges for your stay starting on May 30, 2012. I have enclosed a copy of your most up to date folio for your records.
"As we have made repeated attempts to resolve this pressing matter over the last few weeks without any resolution, I regret to inform you that we will no longer be able to extend any further credit for you to remain at the hotel."
