Lohan

Accused of Crimes

Against Shoe-manity

6/30/2010 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan concocted a diabolical, fraudulent plan to defraud an L.A. boutique out of thousands of dollars ... according to a lawsuit that will be filed today.

0629-lindsay-money-ex-tmz_02
TMZ has obtained a copy of the suit, in which Church -- a boutique that sells expensive clothes, jewelry, and accessories -- claims Lindsay shopped at the store between November, 2009 and February, 2010. 

According to the suit, Lindsay racked up a bill of $17,060.83 and convinced the owners her business manager would pay the bill.  But much to the chagrin of the owners, Lindsay's business manager paid a grand total of $180. 

The suit, which will be filed in L.A. County Superior Court, alleges Lindsay "had no intention of causing her business manager to pay the entire balance."

And there's this -- the suit claims the boutique owners relied on Lindsay's "well known status as a movie actress with substantial income."  Wrong on both counts.

The owners say Lindsay committed premeditated fraud and are seeking the balance -- $16,880.63 -- plus interest and punitive damages.

Yes, we see the 20 cent differential -- but that's the way it appears in the lawsuit. Apparently, the shop is giving LiLo a credit.

No comment from Lindsay's camp.

She probably hasn't even worn or taken off the tags of the items. Take them back Lindsay.

You're milking a dead cow. You probably foolishly gave her too much credit and a great discount in the first place, she will argue, I'm much too nice to pass that up and dissapoint the shoe store. Contact the DA and get her tossed in jail if she doesn't pay it off. Unfortunately, the dead beat lindsay's will rob someone else to pay you off but that is NOT your problem., her excuses ought to be priceless.. and hope against hope, she doesn't return the merchandise.

This is why people greatly dislike this person an overwhelming sense of of entitlement, irresponsibility when she is put in a very envious position. Very few people would squander the opportunities she had and some she will never see again. Very sad.

Yeah, credit for the $180 the manager previously paid. Do the math.

How does someone manage to not pay their bills and yet still go broke? Oh yeah, drugs. That's how someone does it. Lots and lots of drugs.
