Can you even imagine drawing up a contract with Lindsay Lohan and expecting anything to come of it? Can you even imagine *wanting* to work with Lindsay in any capacity? We’ve known how unreliable and unprofessional she is for years now. I mean, she was an unhireable mess a decade ago, and little has changed since then. Still, HarperCollins thought it would be a brilliant idea to lock Lindsay into a contract for a memoir in 2014. They thought it would be a good idea to give her an advance!! They ended up cancelling the book deal and asking for the advance back. LMAO!
Lindsay Lohan’s art of the book deal consists of agreeing to write it, getting a huge sum of money and then failing to turn in a draft … at least according to a new suit. Publishing company HarperCollins is going after Lohan, claiming she breached a contract she signed way back in March 2014 to write a book. According to the legal docs — obtained by TMZ — Lohan and her production company promised she’d have it completed by May 2015 … but it never happened.
Instead, HarperCollins claims it revised the due date to March 2017, and even paid her a $365,000 advance against future royalties.
However, HarperCollins claims the deadlines came and went, and Lindsay never delivered a manuscript. So, the publisher says it informed her in Sept. 2018 the book deal was off, and it wanted its money back. There’s a lawsuit, so you guessed it … HC says LiLo never refunded the cash.
HarperCollins is suing Lohan for the $365k plus interest and legal fees. We reached out to Lindsay … no word back so far.
I mean, obviously Lindsay Lohan should have returned the advance and all that. But I can’t help but think this is entirely a fool’s errand on the part of HarperCollins. What the hell did they think was going to happen? She’s a grifter and she hates anything resembling work! She was never going to write that memoir! And the fact that they still gave her an advance AFTER they had to revise the date (by two years LMAO)… well, that’s on them! Just write off the $365K as a stupidity tax. And fire whoever thought it would be a great idea to give Lindsay Lohan a damn book contract.
