Lindsay Lohan: Getting sued …. again!

Lindsay Lohan

A few of you might remember this, but somewhere in transition period between when Lindsay Lohan was an actress and when LiLo was a cautionary tale, she was briefly a clothing designer. Remember? Her line was called 6126 (I think that was her dealer’s extension or something) and it was mostly known for selling tights with knee-pads in them, but the entire thing sort of just disappeared. Well, it turns out Lindsay tried to convince clothing manufacturer D.N.A.M. to make some stuff for her, and then sued them for allegedly stiffing her on over a million dollars in licensing fees. However, now they’re counter-suing her for five times that amount, claiming that she tanked her clothing line and their business deal. TMZ reports …

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.” D.N.A.M. claims Lindsay’s “drug-addled image” destroyed 6126’s reputation, and rendered the clothing line completely unsellable. 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.

Here’s the part that kills me: Right before Lindsay went to rehab, she talked to Piers Morgan about how she didn’t need rehab and was perfectly fine. This right here? Pretty sure this proves otherwise. Because if you think being sued while you’re in rehab by a clothing manufacturer for essentially drinking your own clothing line into the ground is “fine,” I’d hate to see what you consider problematic.
