"People sit in lawn chairs with cameras outside on the sidewalk. This last incident where this lunatic knocked on her door was the straw that broke the camel's back. It just got her thinking that she needs to move. Lindsay contacted some real estate agents about properties that are gated and more secure, and in the interim, she's moved into the Chateau Marmont."

"When someone makes a change like this (moving), it's natural for them to consider going back to their roots, and in this case, that would be New York."
