Lindsay Lohan

Sued By Paparazzo

Over Car Accident

1/10/2012 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0110_lilo_car_tmz_ex2A paparazzo is suing Lindsay Lohan ... claiming he was badly injured when the car in which Lindsay was riding tried making a fast getaway from a Hollywood club and nailed him.

Grigor Balyan was taking pictures of Lindsay at the time of the accident on January 10, 2010.

Balyan's lawyer, Neil Steiner, tells TMZ ... Lindsay is being sued because her assistant was driving the car at her direction.

Steiner says his client was medically treated for orthopedic and neurologic injuries.

Steiner says he tried settling with Lindsay's insurance company but they only made "an insignificant offer." He says all he wants for his client is "reasonable compensation."

Calls to Lindsay's rep were not immediately returned.

Stupid enough to stand in front of, or around moving vehicles while taking pictures you deserve to get hit. Probably the first time I've ever thought Lohan didn't do something wrong. lol.
I really wish her lawyer would call this guys bluff, but majority of time they just eventually fork over the cash. Quicker, and less hassle. Which is said that worthless people wind up getting cash for nothing.

Ok...I'm not a fan of LL...but seriously, the moron deserved it! One of the few things lower then LL are slimy s*** buckets like him! What did he think was going to happen when he stood in front of the car! Is it right...maybe not, but, did he deserve it...you bet!

It must be the best job in the world working for lindsay. Lindsay steals a necklace and blams her stylist then makes the same stylist turn it in to the police. Now assistant runs over a pedestrian trying to get away from photogs probably because linds was alledgedly drunk. Must be great job working for $8.00hr

I’m sure you’ve heard...

Deadline reported yesterday that Lindsay Lohan is negotiating to star in a Lifetime movie about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. I know your first inclination is to punch yourself in the face from disgust. I get it.

But...

It’s not HBO.

It’s LIFETIME.

You have to appreciate how funny this is. Like, really, really, really funny.

You know who makes tv movies for Lifetime?

How about Jennifer Love Hewitt? How about LeAnn Rimes? How about Mischa Barton just shot a Lifetime movie? It’s the only job she could get for a while.

Lindsay Lohan is now doing Lifetime movies.

Lindsay Lohan is being sent the same kind of material as Jennifer Love Hewitt, LeAnn Rimes, and Mischa Barton. Come now. This isn’t funny?

Lindsay Lohan used to be a movie star. Lindsay Lohan now has to consider roles in cheesy ass Lifetime movies. Lifetime movies are usually shot over a month. With a limited budget. If she’s considering a role in a Lifetime movie, and I don’t give a sh-t if it’s the lead, it means she has nothing else to consider.

You know, Jennifer Love Hewitt was cast in an atrocious tv movie about Audrey Hepburn many, many years ago. It came and went. This sh-t happens. The stink stays on the actor way longer than it does on the viewer.

That said, if she works hard, if she keeps her sh-t together, could Lindsay Lohan turn it around? Take the Robert Downey Jr road? Well, she is her mother’s daughter. So...

Now we wait for Dina Lohan to declare her daughter’s performance worthy of the Academy changing its rules to allow television performances for inclusion in the nomination process.

Grigor just wants to be in the news. Maybe his Mother didn't hold him enough as a child or his Dad ignored him.

But hell, hopefully the guy gets a few bucks.

Wow. Lindsay Lohan getting sued. As usual an 'assistant's fault'.


Calls to Lindsay's rep (doesn't have one) were not not 'immeditely' returned. Why would there be an immediat return? Oh, that's right Lohan didn't do anything.

Damn, hate to say this. But from the video. Didnt see the car even ding him. Also that was NOT lindsay's assistent. That was one of her party buddys. Dont know if it was tmz that messed up on that or the pap. Will be interesting to see if there are any do***ented injuries. I think he should have just settled with the insurance co. on this one.

Lindsay Lohan owes back taxes from 2009. Lohan got money from Playboy so pay the 94k you owe. The business managers fault doesn't work. Playing dumb doesn't work either.
