LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Alex Torres aka Voodoo (photos below) claimed a Lindsay Lohan romance encounter during a news interview this month. Voodoo’s Lindsay Lohan allegations have now surfaced five months after the Alex Torres, Hope Howell skydiving video dominated national news, and an FAA inquiry, last winter.
In October 2011, the Alex Torres and Hope Howell skydiving video (below) prompted an initial FAA investigation. Torres allegedly authored the video to attract attention from Howard Stern. But now Torres claims that he previously drew attention from someone else, Lindsay Lohan.
Last fall, Torres was an instructor at Skydive Taft. Howell was the school’s receptionist. Alex Torres is also a “film” actor known by the name Voodoo.
When sought for news comment by KCET and CNN, Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson Ian Gregor surprised news by indicating that mid-air relations between Torres and Howell was not actionable under the FAA. Gregor said that because both persons were of adult age and consenting there was no violation.
But the FAA then launched an investigation into a secondary issue: alleged relations inside the plane. In a news statement at the time, the FAA said it was determining “whether the activity could have distracted the pilot or resulted in the pilot being jostled and bumped.”
As the inquiry continued, skydiving company owner David Chrouch told news he wasn’t at work when the video was recorded and claimed it was recorded in the early morning hours without his knowledge. Finally, by November, the FAA told news that the subject of the investigation was limited to the in-cabin behavior, and that no wrongdoing was found.
Suddenly, on Friday, Torres was jumping into another news story. Torres granted an interview to The Jim Richards Show on Newstalk 1010 in Toronto. Torres claimed to news that he and Lindsay Lohan were once intimate. “Ask him [Michael Lohan] if he knows about that night I had with his daughter while he was sleeping upstairs. I’m not joking!” Lohan has yet to comment on Torres’ alleged kiss-and-tell.
