Lindsay Lohan, Robert Shapiro

UPDATE: Shapiro ultimately did not appear on Tuesday's Larry King Live. Instead, Michael Lohan, Dr. Drew Pinsky, and various other legal and addiction experts were in studio.

Robert Shapiro's no longer speaking for Lindsay Lohan in court. Now he's been muzzled from talking about her anywhere else.

Judge Marsha Revel has prohibited Shapiro from talking specifics about the jailed actress' case, which could put a crimp in the attorney's scheduled appearance on Larry King Live tonight.

As of press time, Shapiro is still booked on CNN. But suddenly the Q&A is sounding a lot less interesting...

D.A. spokeswoman Jane Robison told E! News that the gag order was issued after this morning's hearing, during a private meeting in chambers between Revel, Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers and Lohan's reunited lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley. The meeting came at the prosecutor's request out of concern for Lohan's privacy.

Robison said the three were worried that Shapiro had access to confidential information and since he is now not the attorney of record (as Holley informed the judge during the proceeding), they needed to make sure he kept his mouth shut.

Lohan had retained Shaprio last Friday only to be counsel-less when news broke late yesterday that Shapiro had quit. That prompted Lohan to bring back her original attorney, Holley, for today's festivities.

When he signed on last week, Shapiro announced he would represent the troubled thesp "on the condition that she complies with all of the terms of her probation," which included doing her full jail sentence.

But Shapiro abruptly stepped down after a Monday powwow with Revel. An insider close to the lawyer told E! News that he was none too happy with Lohan's "unruly" behavior after checking into the sober-living house he runs.

Lohan has been remanded to Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., to begin serving a 90-day sentence for a probation violation in her 2007 DUI that will likely be reduced to about two weeks due to overcrowding.
