Someone purporting to be a friend of the actress reached out to the show, allegedly on her behalf, and booked her to appear.

Lindsay Lohan won't be reading the Top 10 list on the Late Show With David Letterman after all.

A day after announcing that the actress is appearing on Thursday's show, Tom Keaney, spokesperson for Worldwide Pants Incorporated, said in a statement: "Lindsay Lohan will not be delivering a Top Ten list on Thursday’s LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, as had been previously announced.

"We made a mistake," the statement continued. "Someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's reached out to the show yesterday, allegedly on her behalf, and booked her to appear.  Clearly, this person was not authorized to make commitments on her behalf.  We wish Lindsay well, and look forward to having her on the show in the future."'

The actress also chimed in via Twitter.  "I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion...," she wrote.

At the Feb. 13 Grammy Awards, Letterman joked about Lohan in his Top 10 Grammy Surprises list: "Lindsay Lohan seen leaving Staples Center with Grammy-shaped bulge in her jacket," he quipped.

Earlier this month, the actress was charged with one felony count of grand theft for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, Calif., jewelry store. She is due back in court later this month.
