Bai Ling by Amy Graves/WireImage.com
Blame it on the man, sure! Bai Ling says an "emotionally crazy" day fueled by romantic woes culminated in her unsuccessfully pinching $16 worth of celebrity glossies (
batteries, hmmm...) from an LAX gift shop. "[That's the] huge problem of breaking up [before] Valentine's Day," Ling told E! News on Thursday, the day after her arrest. "Wrong boyfriend." A friend of the actress (whose recent TV credits include
) adds, "She was in... a mentally unstable state of mind.... She was distracted."
Ling is due in court March 5 to face charges. (Can we double security on the courthouse newsstand?)
