Last we heard from Nick Lambert, a manager at The Abbey, he was making the rather sound decision to not serve alcohol to a wayward fifteen-year-old autistic kid with a taste for screwdrivers. But today, two websites are spreading some loose talk that Lambert has been fired from the club and may even be accused of embezzling $300,000 from the business, with little to officially corroborate the accusation. WeHo Confidential, which cites "inside sources," still chalks the talk up to "rumor," questioning why, if he was fired under suspicion of stealing so much scratch over several years, would he also be spotted at a "white party" sponsored by The Abbey's principals right after.
Meanwhile, a gay gossip site called The Data Lounge has picked up the story in a discussion thread, further spreading speculation over the outrageous accusations. In the meantime, we've followed up with The Abbey's reps to try and dig out the truth behind the finger-pointing. If it proves false, Lambert will more than likely be able to sue more than $300,000 out of the site currently running his picture. Hey, either way, he's rich!

UPDATE: A rep for the nightclub confirms that Lambert is "no longer employed at The Abbey" but says "we do not comment on staffing changes."
