Adding to the current troubles for Lindsay Lohan, who is putting in time in court-ordered rehab, the actress was sued for $5 million, TMZ.com reports.
The lawsuit — a countersuit by clothing manufacturer D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries — has to do with Lohan’s drug problems, the piece reports. Lohan previously sued D.N.A.M.
“In her lawsuit, Lindsay says she struck a business deal with D.N.A.M. in 2009 allowing them to manufacture clothes for her ‘6126’ clothing line — but D.N.A.M. stiffed her on a massive licensing fee. Lindsay wants $1.1 million in damages,” TMZ reports. “But D.N.A.M. is now coming back at Lindsay for nearly five times that amount, insisting SHE’S the reason their business deal fell apart.”
D.N.A.M. cites Lohan’s "drug-addled image," saying it harmed 6126’s reputation and made the clothing line impossible to sell, the piece notes.
“According to D.N.A.M., the company did its darndest to sell their 6126 clothes to high-end third party retailers — but by spring 2010, no one would touch the brand … because Lindsay was back in rehab … and her legal problems were playing out in the media ‘like a Greek tragedy.’” TMZ reports. “D.N.A.M. says it invested millions in 6126 for nothing — and now it’s suing for breach of contract and fraud, demanding at least $5 million in damages.”
