Paula Abdul Spells Paranoia
Note to bystanders: if you drop your phone underneath Paula Abdul's car and you have to crawl on your hands and knees to retrieve it, be aware that she may send the po-po your way. No, she doesn't think you're trying to steal her car, she'll just think you're putting a tracking device there. Yeah, because we're really just dying to know where Paula goes on a daily basis. You don't need a tracking device when you know she spends her days at her psychiatrist, pharmacist, and anything else mental.
Anyway, this is what happened to a photog when he was standing outside the Ole Henriksen salon in West Hollywood last week. The dude dropped his phone by Paula's Range Rover and had to crawl underneath to get his shizz back.
Shortly after, three deputies from the West Hollywood branch of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department arrived on the scene. Illegal oil change? Nope. Our source says the boys in blue asked the paps if one of them had put a tracking device under Abdul's car, explaining that the former American Idol judge was concerned for her safety. While the eyewitness says no one was cited in the incident, Abdul was a bit shaken up...
"Everything was cool, but the people in the salon made a big deal," says the source. "Paula did not want to ride in her own car."
Sure enough, a little while later, a man and a womanpossibly Abdul's assistantsshowed up at the salon, and the man drove off in Abdul's SUV. The woman, in another vehicle, pulled in front of the salon and Abdul quickly walked out, got in the backseat and ducked down.
