Lindsay Lohan

Parting Ways With Her Manager

10/24/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan in Court
Lindsay Lohan is cleaning out more than just trash bins at the morgue -- TMZ has learned she's kicking her business manager to the curb.

Sources close to LiLo tell TMZ she decided to split with her business manager, Lou Taylor.  We're told Lindsay felt Taylor (who also manages Britney Spears) didn't have the time to manage her and Lohan wanted someone who could put more effort into her.

According to our sources, Lindsay felt her finances (which were Taylor's responsibility) were beginning to slip through the cracks and word was getting back to her that her balances were not being handled in a timely manner ... in part because Taylor is based in Tennessee.

Lohan's rep, Steve Honig, tells TMZ the split was amicable and Lohan and Taylor remain friends.

Calls to Taylor were not returned.

I told Lindsay to fire Lou. He was useless and we didn't need to be spending all of our, I mean Lindsay's money on him with all we owe now to Shawn Holley.

I'll be her business manager now - which means I just get a bigger cut - should Lindsay ever land another role, that is.

Her finaces are slipping through a crack?

Her BRAIN slipped through a crack.

If she wants to make money she should stop partying, stealing & driving drunk & spending so many working hours in front of a JUDGE!

Try WORKING & you'd be surprised at how your financial situation improves.

Idiot.

Now Lindsay has to manage her own money (change and lint in the bottom of her Chanel handbag). She will be far too busy and traumatized to go to community service this week. Sorry judge, business (monkey) is business......

With all the civil judgements against her. Se probalbe can't deposit money in her name because she has liens on her accounts. A few months ago I seen in a NY tabloid where Dina Lohan was depositing royality check in Lindsay's name to Dina's account at a long Island, NY bank.

The Fox news is waiting for Lindsay at the morgue with a reporter. They just announced that Lindsay isn't going to the morgue today. Looks like jail for her oh well, maybe it will be a learning experience. I'll start the jail pool and say 21 days, any other guesses?

I've heard something quite different to this. Of course that what her "rep" is going to say, that guy lies as much as Lindsay does, you can't believe anything out of either of their mouths.

Crack-whoring doesn't count as a business so it looks like she doesn't need a business manager anyhow.

Lou is a business manager,not a talent manager.
Lou is a woman.
Lou is much respected in Hollywood and has very successful career.
Lindsay's loss, but I'm sure Lindsay can manage her business affairs as well as she does manages everything else.

Prior TMZ story on Lou Taylor.....

Lou Taylor -- who has a financial management company in Nashville, Tennessee -- quietly came on board with Lindsay a few months ago.

Taylor is not only considered genius in the money department, she's a huge personality with a moral force that easily rivals her hubby, who's a minister.

Sources say one of the reasons Taylor came on board with Lindsay is because of her fire and brimstone approach to handling her clients. We're told Taylor is not shy about pushing her born again religious views ... something we're told scared the hell out of Britney ... but we're also told Brit got over it when Taylor engineered the financial end of Brit's very successful concert tour.

Taylor reps a bunch of Hollywood types as well as Nashville singers. One person who currently works with Taylor says, "She takes BS from no one. It's like having a mother with an iron fist who just fiercely tries tries to protect her clients."

Another source says Taylor's influence is so strong, it's like having an "interventionist" on her clients' team.

Taylor is the one who ripped Dr. Phil a new one for trying to do a Britney intervention on his television show in the middle of her 5150 hold.

Sources say Taylor has helped Lindsay in the financial chaos department. In the intervention department ... not so much.

I'm guessing that Lindsay will not show up at the morgue today. She probably partied all weekend and is wasted. So much for going to the morgue every day to show her good faith. lol. Late on Thursday, worked Friday, no show on Monday. She doesn't have to go today.. the Judge said 2 days per week, so she's not in violation of this part of the Judge's orders. But so much for Lindsay's word that she would go every day. I know no one believed that anyway. What a twit !!

Lindsay-
Everyone is so tired of this victim game of yours.
YOU are responsible. It was YOUR responsibility to provide Lou Taylor with funds to pay YOUR bills.

lol. If it is actually true that she's the one that dumped him (which I seriously doubt), this guy should be celebrating. This girl is a disease. Anybody that is associated with her is committing career suicide and is just going to get pulled down with her.

I'm getting tired of some news sources claiming she's this way because of her parents and all the enablers...She could of come from a proper and some what normals parents and still end up being a meth pipe surfer. Why is everything never her fault? SHE'S 25 not 15
