She just can’t seem to stay away from the court house!
Lindsay Lohan is suing her former collaborators on a clothing line, claiming the manufacturers continue to sell items under her 6126 Collection name. She is now seeking more than $1.1 million in damages and renewed control of the trademark name.
The lawsuit was filed against D.N.A.M Apparel Industries LLC, and claims that the company has failed to pay the troubled actress more than $1 million in royalties, in addition to excluding her from important design meetings which made it impossible to give creative input on the merchandise.
Apparently the clothing retailer also falsely promised that they were going to expand the 6126 line into swimwear, cosmetics and other apparel and open a showroom in New York.
“lindsay is very passionate about her apparel line and about designing. The purpose of this suit is to wrest control of her trademark away from this company that’s been selling items overseas and online under the 6126 trademark,” her attorney Perry Wander explained.
This isn’t the first time Lilo has gotten into a squabble over her image and likeness! She settled a lawsuit with E-Trade in 2010 over a Super Bowl ad that featured babies talking about a “milkaholic” named Lindsay.
We’re not buying the fact that Miss Lohan wanted more responsibility!
