Lindsay Lohan is being sued after failing to pay her clothing bills


A few weeks ago, Lindsay Lohan paid $100,000 for one drink. Allegedly. It was at an MTV Awards after-party that Lindsay maybe probably had a drink that set off her SCRAM, and violated her probation, thus, forfeiting her $100,000 bail. A new bail was set, et cetera, but Lindsay maybe probably definitely had to pay the court (or the bail bondsman) the initial $100,000. So Linds can drop $100K on a vodka tonic. This bitch is a player, right? Well, I thought at the time that Lindsay was going to run out of money very fast, especially if she continued violating her probation. This new report from TMZ is probably just the tip of the debt iceberg – according to them, Lindsay is being sued because she didn’t pay her $17 K-plus bill at Tough as Nails, an LA boutique.

Lindsay Lohan concocted a diabolical, fraudulent plan to defraud an L.A. boutique out of thousands of dollars … according to a lawsuit that will be filed today.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the suit, in which Tough as Nails — a boutique that sells expensive clothes, jewelry, and accessories — claims Lindsay shopped at the store between November, 2009 and February, 2010.

According to the suit, Lindsay racked up a bill of $17,060.83 and convinced the owners her business manager would play the bill. But much to the chagrin of the owners, Lindsay’s business manager paid a grand total of $180.

The suit, which will be filed in L.A. County Superior Court, alleges Lindsay “had no intention of causing her business manager to pay the entire balance.”

And there’s this — the suit claims the boutique owners relied on Lindsay’s “well known status as a movie actress with substantial income.” Wrong on both counts.

The owners say Lindsay committed premeditated fraud and are seeking the balance — $16,880.63 — plus interest and punitive damages.

No comment from Lindsay’s camp.

Eh. Not that shocking, really. I’m guessing there will be more of these kinds of suits brought against Lindsay in the future, as her “baller” existence meets her crushing debt and lack of income.

TMZ also had another story about Lindsay and her 2007 arrest – the dumbass cop who went through Lindsay’s thinks thought the cocaine on her Clinique Sun Care card was a crushed breath mint, and he tossed it in the trash. Ugh. So there was evidence contamination. Lucky break, Lindsay.

    I dont’ get it she owes 17 gran on clothes she got at a boutique. Who let’s someone leave their store prior to paying for their purchase? Am I missing something?

  2. Sarah says:

    I say it’s the store’s fault for being stupid.

  3. gabs says:

    LOL He thought it was a breath mint? what a dumbass. Someone put this bitch in jail already. How has she not hit rock bottom yet? Well this stealing thing is not a shock.

  4. Nudgie says:

    BTW, you only have to put up 10% of your Bail to the bondsman, so she only coughed up (figuratively) $20,000 ($10K + $10K)

    Hell, you can rip off clothing stores of more than that…. 😉

  5. Hautie says:

    Once upon a time, a person could establish a credit line with a store.

    You filled out a credit application with your credit history and the store would set you up with a line of credit.

    Then monthly they would bill you for the amount owed. You mailed them a check for the balance.

    This was a luxury for most married women of a certain time period whose husbands paid all the bills. Men rarely ever gave their wife’s cash. A married woman would have credit lines all over town. But no cash.

    It is a rare occurrence now since everyone and their cat have credit cards. So the need to have a personal store credit line, is not needed.

    But there are still stores in LA that rely on high end customers to shop their stores and they let them take home purchases with the understanding that “their” business manager will send a check to cover the cost.

    Lindsay is alledegly still using the “bill me” my manager will send a check scam on stores she has no intentions of paying off the balance. And really it is the stores fault. Everyone in LA knows she is not exactly rolling in cash.

    I know it’s off-topic, but that dumb photo of the Duggar woman looking all wide-eyed is bugging the crap out of me!

  7. bite me says:

    please leave this child alone, nothing is ever her fault.

  8. Snarf says:

    I call BS on this story, not that it’s not true (of course it is) but I suspect the store manager/owners knew full well what would happen if they gave Linds credit and went ahead any way. Why? Free publicity when they take her to court.

  9. bellaluna says:

    Throw that mental-giant cop AND Hohan in jail!

  10. Lindsay says:

    Nudgie- Thats true unless you forfeit it like she did. She is now on the hook for the entire $100,000 plus $20,000 to cover her new bail amount. If you play by the rules and find a bondsman that will trust you then you will have to pay 10% up front and might get some back when your trial is over depending on the fee for the bail bond.

    Denise- It is in the article.

  11. Persistent Cat says:

    So if she gets her bond money from Dog the Bounty Hunter and there’s an episode where they go after her, who will have the worst hair in that episode? Dog? Beth? Leeland? Lindsay? It’s hard to say.

    And when they catch her, she’ll get mouthy and Beth will go off on her and it will get full on ridiculous. Then at the end, after she’s handcuffed, Dog can share a smoke with her and go on about second chances and blah blah blah. My husband watches that stupid show and I’ve caught a few episodes.

  12. Emma says:

    Hahahahaha @ Persistent Cat, I would pay BIG money (although probs not 100k) to see that episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter. Oh my god. That would be possibly the greatest tv ever.

  13. Ogechi says:

    Lindsay Lohan,Lindsay Lohan,Lindsay Lohan!!! Please get your acts together. Whatever that is making your life so deviated, I pray God to deliver you. You are a talented lady, DON’T BE WASTED swthrt.

  14. hottathanholywatta says:

    her sense of entitlement is unbelievable

  15. mollination says:

    Who doesn’t store crushed breath mints in random cards from their wallet? You don’t want them in the altoid can mixing with all the whole, in-tact mints.


    Poor baby milkaholic probably had no clothes to wear because someone stole them and she was probably shivering cold and her manager told her he’d buy them for her and she trusted them because she’s just a poor naive baby who wants to see the good in people. Don’t worry lindsay, I know.

  16. Tia C says:

    @ Sarah: You are right – stupid store! They get what they get, which in this case, will most likely be nothing!

  18. Lem says:

    I read LL didn’t put up the bonds/bail a ministers wife who was maybe a business manager did. maybe a financial guru, a born again tough gal

    Lou Taylor, according to TMZ

  19. Lem says:

    she’d spend less and look better if she shopped at goodwill

  20. bettiep says:

    I can’t stand her now that I saw her on the Bravo Show Double Exposure. She was so damn annoying, showing up hours late, getting up and walking away while they were doing her makeup, and making fun of the photographer.

    She’s just really immature and annoying.

  21. logan says:

    wake up and “QUIT PISSIN’ YOUR LIFE AWAY. You have had so many wonderful opportunities put before you and blown them. It may not be in your best interest to get advice from either of your parents. They both seem somewhat unstable. Take your life in hand and make something of it. You only get so many chances. Make the most of it.

  22. Laura says:

    So I was on another site, saw an article about LL, and passed on it. Saying to myself “it’s all the same shit, and I’m tired of it”. This however, is relatively new, and I clicked, only to find myself utterly bored, again.

    I truly think I am done clicking on her stories. It’s beyond old at this point.

    Next please. (Miley?)

  23. RaraAvis says:

    Hope she didn’t pay 16 grand for the ugly-ass outfit she’s wearing in the banner picture. I think she stole that one from Mischa Barton.

  24. Westcoaster says:

    Lindsay Lohan, Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth Chapman all in the same episode. I would pay to see that!

  25. kitkat says:

    nudgie- when she forefitted her original bail she lost the original $100,000

  26. Jazz says:

    I’d love to see Beth take down Lindsay. Then I’d love to see Beth take down Dina.

  27. hey guys i cannot wait 4 the expendables the movie to come out! Its going to be awesome!

  28. This is classic, the store liked her coming in because it brought them publicity but now since she is going to hell they want their money back. He dude, it’s your store, don’t let people shop there on credit.

    You have actually created some exceptional points here. I specifically appreciate the way you’ve been able to stick so much thought into a relatively short post (comparitively) which creates it an thoughtful publish on your subject. In my opinion, you’ve presented the topic in a quite thorough yet concise manner, that is genuinely useful when somebody wants to get the facts without spending too a lot time searching the web and sifting out the noise to discover the answers to their questions. I usually get so frustrated with so plentiful in the final results inside the major SE’s due to the fact they normally seem to mostly be filled with filler content that often isn’t extremely sensible. If you don’t mind I’m going to add this post and your webpage to my delicious favorites so I can share it with my family. I appear forward to approaching back to read your future posts as well.

  30. Hey everyone! Checking in from the deep blue sea 🙂 Home tomorrow! Anyone miss me? lol
