Lindsay Lohan decided to go nude for Playboy magazine because she was extremely concerned about her financial situation if she was given a possible jail sentence.

Lohan, 25, earned 1 million dollars for posing naked for the magazine.

'Lindsay still hasn't signed her contract to be in the John Gotti biopic. Lindsay is extremely concerned about her finances, and she needs the money,' a source told Radar Online.

'Lindsay's flow of income has been greatly diminished in the last year. With the possibility of being sent back to jail for over a year, she felt that now was the time to do the Playboy photo shoot,' the source added.

The Mean Girls star has been ordered to complete 16 hours per week at the morgue before her probation violation hearing on Nov 2, which could possibly sentence the actress to 18 months in jail.

Amy Winehouse's cause of death has been revealed to be due to excessive drinking and not because of any drug intake.

The coroner's verdict stated the late singer's death as a misadventure by drinking excessively, with alcohol limit being found to be more than five times the drink-drive limit.

Three empty vodka bottles (two large and one small), were found at the 'Rehab' hitmaker's flat where she was found dead.

According to a pathologist, the fatal level is 350mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, but Winehouse's post mortem examination recorded 416mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, the BBC reported.

The R and B star's family were pained by the fact that she had lost her battle with alcohol, and issued a statement saying, 'We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away - it is likely a build-up of alcohol in her system over a number of days.'

'The court heard that Amy was battling hard to conquer her problems with alcohol and it is a source of great pain to us that she could not win in time,' the statement read.

Michael Jackson has topped the list of highest-earning dead celebrities compiled by Forbes magazine.

The King of Pop, who died in June 2009 at age 50, made more money than any other dead celebrity over the past year, according to Forbes' rankings, the New York Post reported.

Jackson posthumously earned 170 million dollars over the past 12 months from sales of his back catalog, his music publishing company, Mijac Music, and his stakes in the Sony/ATV Music Publishing catalog.

The top five deceased celebrities following Jackson are Elvis Presley (55 million dollars), Marilyn Monroe (27 million dollars), 'Peanuts' cartoonist Charles Schulz (25 million dollars), and a tie between John Lennon and Elizabeth Taylor, who both earned 12 million dollars.

Jackson also topped last year's list, earning 275 million dollars between October 2009 and October 2010 from record sales and his 'This Is It' documentary.
