It’s not been a good week for Lindsay Lohan. As the troubled former child star battles her drug and alcohol addictions in a rehab centre, she’s been slapped with a lawsuit by the apparel manufacturer D.N.A.M. that partnered with her leggings line 6126. The claim? That her ”drug-addled image” destroyed 6126′s reputation and rendered the clothing line completely unsellable.
D.N.A.M. states that it invested millions and now it’s suing for breach of contract and fraud, seeking $5 million in damages.
Lohan’s lawyer refutes the contention, stating, ”The license agreement does not have a morals clause that allows the company to suspend payment for any behaviour. The contract is not in Lohan’s name thus she cannot be held personally liable. The cross claim is therefore frivolous and will be defended vigorously”.
We think this suit’s without merit. To start with, Lohan’s drink and drug problems go back way before than 2009 and D.N.A.M. would have been well aware of this before they went into business with her. In 2007 she was arrested on several occasions and served a highly publicised 84 minutes in jail for driving under the influence. In fact, the reason they went into business with her was no doubt to cash in on her notoriety in the first place! Unfortunately the plan has backfired and the leggings label has not proved as popular as they had hoped.
