Lindsay Lohan’s former assistant is suing for his £3,300 in unpaid wages


Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan on vacation in Greece a few weeks ago. She was partying her ass off in Mykonos in mid-and-late-July and it seemed like the vacation was simply with her group of friends. I’m saying that because there are no photos of a shady-looking Saudi or Emirate prince in the group. It’s widely believed that Lindsay has a full-time boyfriend/john who is paying for her lifestyle these days and it’s widely believed that he’s wealthy and speaks Arabic, and that’s why Lindsay has been “learning Arabic” and “studying the Koran.” But whoever this guy is, he’s not giving Lindsay an unlimited budget. Which is smart. Except that she doesn’t have enough money to pay her assistant (yet she had enough money to party in Mykonos?).

As actress Lindsay Lohan soaked up the sun on a yacht off the Greek island of Mykonos last week, the prospect of appearing in a dusty courtroom seemed like the last thing on her mind. But The Mail on Sunday can reveal the Hollywood star faces fresh humiliation after a legal bid was launched to claim £3,300 which is owed in unpaid wages to her former personal assistant.

Miss Lohan is off probation for the first time in nearly eight years after a string of convictions for theft and reckless driving. She has been jailed five times and has made about 20 court appearances. It was thought that she had put her wild antics behind her, but last week Jesse Peckham, who worked for Miss Lohan in London last autumn, is a witness in the case at the Central London County Court, arguing that he had not been paid. Mr Peckham was hired by a recruitment firm to work as Miss Lohan’s personal assistant for three months from September while she made her West End debut in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow.

The case is expected to revolve around claims of Miss Lohan’s bizarre mood swings and ‘insane’ demands, which meant Mr Peckham was forced to resign two months into the contract – for which he has never been paid. Mr Peckham is understood to claim in court papers that the 29-year-old actress also insulted him. Sorted Personal Management, the company that hired Mr Peckham on Miss Lohan’s behalf, accuses her British publicist Beth Morris of failing to pay the £3,300 bill for his services. Mr Peckham, who is set to be a key witness in the case, is understood to claim that he walked out on Miss Lohan because of her behaviour.

Mr Peckham is understood to claim in his statement that he told Miss Morris that he would not tolerate any illegal behaviour and that he had been warned about Miss Lohan’s difficult reputation. More damningly, it is thought that Mr Peckham claims that Miss Morris and Miss Lohan were hiring people they knew they couldn’t afford to pay.

[From The Daily Mail]

The Mail got a statement from Morris (Lohan’s publicist) that was basically like “all lies!” But anyone currently employed by the Cracken is obviously suspect, and I’ve got to wonder if Beth Morris has even been paid, you know? How can Lindsay even afford a full-time publicist on retainer? As for Lindsay’s “bizarre mood swings” etc – I mean, it would be gossip if Lindsay was a lovely person. If you go into a job knowing that you’re going to be working for the Cracken in any capacity, don’t you know that it’s going to end in ceaseless crack drama, tantrums, thrown drinks, cigarettes burns, licked mirrors and tears?

    Guess the assistant does not take crackit cards… Can’t believe this chic is still alive.

  2. Snazzy says:

    Why would someone agree to even work for her? Not that it’s his fault for not being paid, of course he deserves to be paid. But I just wonder…

  3. Shambles says:

    Whomever you were, over on the Britney Spears thread…

    You summoned her.

    *puts on garlic necklace and dances in a circle of salt*

    • ldub says:

      wth? LMAO.

      • Shambles says:

        Lol people were making Lilo comparisons over on the Britney Spears thread before this story was posted, so it kind of felt like a “speak of the devil” situation.

  4. Neah23 says:

    Why is this dude surprised or mad? I mean Lindsay is known for not paying her lawyers, assistants or bills so why would he think he’s any different. He should really take this as a learning experience and move on.

    • Solsolito says:

      I’d be inclined to agree if he wasn’t owed in access of $6700 CAD (I’m Canadian so I converted it to our dollars). This may not seem like much but couple that with emotional and verbal abuse, I think Lindsay is getting of lightly (which is par for the course). Imagine what would happen if someone did this same thing to Lindsay. Yay gods, we’d never hear the end of it.

  5. Jem says:

    Why would anyone working for her expect to be paid? Why would anyone hire her for work? I thought it was obvious at this point that she only TAKES.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      He was hired through an agency. He was expecting to be paid because the agency he was recruited by is supposed to set him up with paying jobs.

      And it sounds like as soon as he learned it was the Cracken he’d be working for, he immediately started setting boundaries on what behaviour he would put up with.

      This guy went in open-eyed and very wary. Why the *agency* believed the Cracken would pay him is a separate matter.

  6. GirlOnFire says:

    I shouldn’t think its too expensive to holiday in Greece right now…

  7. meme says:

    I hate her. Lohan is always living it up someone and never having to foot the bill. Pisses me off.

  8. dr mantis toboggan says:

    Hahahaha I hope he isn’t making plans for that money

  9. Tippipippi says:

    She always looks so dirty and I can’t believe how old she looks. She’s not covered in bruises here, maybe her johns have moved on.

  10. Kaye says:

    “Sorted Personal Management” is the company’s name? Shouldn’t that be “Sordid Personal Management”?

  11. neonhearts says:

    Why does she even have an assistant? Lining up different Saudi princes for her ‘services’? She doesn’t work in any traditional sense.

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      She had that docuseries on OWN last year that was fascinating..basically all her asst did for her was arrange moving details (LA to NYC) and tell show producers that she was “unable to film for today.” LOL ..She yelled at him for nothing (when she was high) and you could tell he was so over it after like day 2 of being hired. Yeah who would want to be her PA after seeing how it is IRL?!

  12. Mia4S says:

    She’s going to want to hit up her client…sorry “boyfriend” to pay this. The testimony would eventually be public record. Or has she completely given up trying to be taken seriously?

    • Madisyn says:

      The “boyfriend”/sugar daddy is GONE!! He kicked her to the curb in April/May. Its why she’s been doing the Yacht Girl Circuit since late June.

  13. Cara says:

    Grifters gonna grift! Duh!!

    (Who in the world takes a job with LL and expects to be paid in real life money, anyway???!!! That’s a laugh!!!)

  14. Katy says:

    She makes me puke!!! She still does that STUPID duck lip kiss blowing thing. It is vomit inducing at this point.

    • skye says:

      Right? It’s just sad. Lady, you are not some glamorous, Monroe-esque, Hollywood starlet… I don’t care how many made-for-cable bio-soaps you get stunt-cast in.

      Get sober, go away and be quiet a few years, take some acting classes, and steer clear of your mother. You can’t have a comeback without a go-away.

  15. Honestly….

    I’m going through a similar situation with a former employer for $7500…. and let me tell you its NOT FUN and INFURIATING 🙁 :::::screams LAWSUIT:::::

    When a employer or anyone shafts you for any amount its unprofessional to say the least. I hope this person can recoup what they haven’t been paid (for nonpayment, failure to pay on time, and or full amount) and THEN SOME…..

    Lohan is just the worst …ugh

  16. Honeychurch says:

    That dude with Lohan is a for-hire songwriter who’s a talent show judge in Norway. Think he had some drugs rumours attached to him not long ago.

  17. Madisyn says:

    “I’m saying that because there are no photos of a shady-looking Saudi or Emirate prince in the group.”

    Au contraire CB. . . .
