Lindsay's Stereo Installer:

"YOU'RE A BORN DRUGGIE!!"

7/27/2011 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0727_lindsay_speaker_ex

The stereo installer who is suing Lindsay Lohan is so angry he didn't get paid, he launched a very personal attack, telling her -- "You're a born druggie!"

TMZ broke the story ... Stephen Clark is suing Lindsay for more than $1,100, claiming she stiffed him on an installation in her Venice home while she was on house arrest.

TMZ has obtained correspondence between Lindsay and Clark, which started civilly but quickly deteriorated.

In the first exchange, Clark wrote. "Hi Lindsay! Well, I sent you two invoices and several BBMs and texts. I have never heard back from you. So I guess you just aren't going to pay for my labor or your equipment."


Clark continued: "I am sorry, but I cannot let that much money go."

Lindsay responded, "Sorry!!I will have it to you this wk! I'm changing business managers and such so I'm trying to handle it asap."

But time passed, and Lindsay went radio silent.

So a frustrated Clark wrote back, "You're a RECOVERING addict who goes to the santa monica probation dept. Should I share this as well?" And Clark continued, "You're a born druggie!"

Clark is suing Lindsay in small claims court.

In my opinion it's slander because it is derogatory and no one is a born druggie. The term born druggie is offensive and Lindsay is a public figure and she shouldn't be abused in a public forum over a bill that is barely late.

ilovegossip, I have already explained why saying she committed a theft is slander in another comment. If the assertion is theft, it's slander.

By the way, when a product is delivered or service rendered, regardless of payment status, it's not considered theft. It's a civil matter after the fact. To say she's a thief in this matter is slander, unwarranted, and simply not accurate.

@ilovegossip

lol, you don't know the reason she's changing managers.

Michael is only pissed off because they won't let him anywhere near her money no matter who the manager or get her involved in his hair brain schemes.

Why is it that the victims of LL’s many crimes have to be paragons of virtue? She owes him the money and she acknowledges that herself. Whether he’s a self-serving jerk looking to ride this cow’s coattails to his 15 minutes or Mother Theresa reincarnated is utterly irrelevant. Every time she pulls this kind of crap there’s always people accusing the victims of being grasping, greedy opportunists but if the stupid cow didn’t keep trying to steal from them they couldn’t possibly touch her. Notice how this sort of thing never happens to the many other famous people in the world with bigger names than her who are just as ripe to be taken advantage of as she is? That would be because they aren’t habitual petty thieves.

@john smith well that's not how slander works..

First off she would have to loose a movie deal or a photo shoot just because of what that guy said... forget her long history of ******* it all up on her own...

IT would be one thing is he accused her of being a child molester and then no one will work with her because of that and they tell her thats the reason.. that is something new and only points to him saying it and not 99% of the world already thinking it.

otherwise who hasn't said she does drugs or who hasn't printed a drug story etc..

Slander suits are not easy or slam dunk cases and most lawyers don't even want to f with them...

I'm so glad this story broke, I find life really hard without my daily Lindsay fix.

C'mon TMZ, find someone a little less venerable to make life hell. I'm not surprised she falls off the rails when every side of her life is getting knocked.

She didn't pay a bill on time, maybe she wasn't happy with it? This guy didn't exactly think this through, there will be no big money from the wealthy coming his way as he can't keep his mouth shut. A fine line in business, he could of just approached her a bit more civilised. She did after all give him a direct number?

What a biatch. Good for this guy. Do what you gotta do to get your money. The few people that are defending Lindsey are the same people that join cults.
