The list of people that Lindsay Lohan owes money to keeps growing and growing…
Apparently, Lilo owes one of her assistants upwards of 40,000 in unpaid wages for work that she had done for the actress.
“Lindsay owes one of her former assistant’s, Jessica, over $40k in unpaid wages. Lindsay actually also borrowed money from the assistant for her own living expenses,” a source told Radar. “Jessica no longer works for Lindsay, and she recognizes that she is probably never going to see the money. Lindsay has a very long history of not paying people for services/work done for her,” the insider added.
And if you don’t remember, Lindsay 26, owes her recently fired, long-standing criminal defense attorney, Shawn Holley, a bunch of money, too: $300,000 plus unpaid legal fees! Lilo hasn’t made a payment to the lawyer in more than half a year.
Maybe this entertaining royalty thing will become more consistent, because at this rate, her acting jobs are nil. I’m not going to lie, I feel bad for Lindsay, but the choices she’s made have gotten her into this mess. Gotta be smart, people! Pay your assistants!
The producers of Lindsay Lohan’s latest film, “The Canyons”, are shocked that their movie has been rejected by The Sundance Film Festival, and guess who they’re blaming! Lindsay herself.
We’re told the Sundance people reached out to producers to screen the movie, and we’re told producers were led to believe it was a shoo-in.
But we found out Sundance passed on the film recently, and the film’s producers believe it might be due in part to the hijinks of its troubled star. They think Lindsay was a “turn off” to the highfalutin Sundance folks.
“The Canyons” producer, Braxton Pope, tells us his agents William Morris/Endeavor are having a screening for buyers at the end of the month and a number of big companies are interested.
We also spoke with Lindsay’s co-star — porn star James Deen– who tells us he’s not bothered about the Sundance diss … saying, “It coincides with AVN (the porn awards). Priorities man!!!!!”
Sundance coincides with the AVN Awards? Seriously – wow. Where do they find these people? Methinks Sundance doesn’t want Lindsay anywhere NEAR their town during the film festival. Can you imagine?
Lindsay Lohan has just made one of the worst decisions of her life – she’s fired Shawn Holley. Shawn Holley nearly became a household name by keeping Lindsay out of jail on MULTIPLE occasions. Lindsay dropped Shawn and has hired New York lawyer Mark Heller. Mark was suspended from practicing law for 5 years back in 1994, maybe Lindsay sees a kindred spirit?
Lohan is facing criminal prosecution in both California and New York. Attorney Mark Heller is repping Lindsay in the NYC assault case. Shawn Holley was repping LiLo in L.A. in her multiple criminal cases — most recently the car crash where she allegedly lied to cops.
It’s a stunning development — given that Holley has taken heat for being too effective, keeping Lindsay out of the pokey in the jewelry heist case as well as several probation violation cases. And she’s almost magically made some criminal investigations disappear.
Sources connected with the L.A. prosecution of Lindsay tell TMZ … Heller — who according to the New York Times has been called a “menace to the public” by some lawyers — sent a letter to Holley saying he was now repping her on all criminal matters.
Bad timing on Lindsay’s part, because sources tell us … Holley was literally on her way to the courthouse when Heller sent his letter — she was trying to negotiate yet another sweet settlement for Lindsay in the lying-to-cops case.
Calls to Holley were not returned.
I am blown away by this news. Lindsay owes her firstborn to Shawn for all the work she’s done for Lindsay over the years. I am stunned that she would drop the woman who has almost flawlessly defended Lindsay. Lindsay has avoided jail so many times, and she only has Shawn to thank for that.
Believe it or not, things are getting serious between Lindsay Lohan and Max George! According to TMZ, the lead singer of ‘The Wanted’ took Lindsay home to meet his parents in the U.K, and it went swimmingly.
Lindsay and Max have been (unofficially) seeing each other since that fateful night in November — when she allegedly punched a fortune teller at an NYC nightclub — but this week, they took their relationship to the next level.
Lindsay’s been partying it up recently in London — as we reported — and sources close to the actress tell us, Max invited her out to his parents’ house in Manchester while she was in the area.
Lindsay happily made the visit early this week — and we’re told Lindsay had a great time, hanging out with the whole George clan for an entire day … and she felt very at home.
We’re told Lindsay and Max have been in constant contact since the last Wanted concert Lindsay attended last month (in the U.S.) — and Max was adamant about her meeting his family.
As of now, we’re told Lindsay and Max are NOT officially GF and BF — just friends who enjoy each other’s company … and probably bang each other a lot.
Could Lindsay have met someone who she can finally have a real relationship with? Better question, will he be good for her? Can Lindsay slow down and have a legit relationship?
Director Paul Schrader knew he had his hands full when he cast Lindsay Lohan as the lead in The Canyons…but just how full?
In a very telling New York Times magazine piece on the film, veteran profile writer Stephen Rodrick details the 26-year-old starlet’s many breakdowns on the set of The Canyons…including one particularly bizarre incident when she locked herself in a walk-in closet with her friend and refused to come out prior to shooting a four-way sex scene with three porn stars.
Director Schrader at first tried first to coax her out, and then resorted to threatening her through the locked closet door. After an hour of failing to get Lohan out of the closet, the 65-year-old director finally had the idea to strip down himself to make Lohan feel more comfortable, and… it worked. Lohan filmed one take of a 14-minute sex scene, even though she was contractually obligated to do the scene, and knew about it months and months beforehand.
Very professional, Lilo.
Oh, and that’s not all. Lindsay would arrive on set “sick,” leave slightly drunk and broke all kinds of ridiculous “firing” and “hiring” records. Rodrick, who was involved during the entire development of the film, describes how Lohan failed to show up for two consecutive days of work right off the bat because she took a sleeping pill and couldn’t wake up (for two days!). Midway through shooting, however, Lohan apparently had a revelation. Says the star:
“I needed time to figure out all the crap in my life that I’d created for myself, essentially, and I kind of realized, What am I doing? I like doing this. I like being here,” she tells Rodrick. “This makes me happy. There was a line in the ‘Elizabeth’ movie where she says, ‘I’m so bored, I’ve never been taught what to do when I’m not working,’ and I’m kind of figuring that out now.”
