Lindsay Lohan Sued

Her Druggie Reputation

Cost Us $5 Million

Lindsay Lohan
has just been sued for $5 million she doesn't have ... all because of her highly-publicized drug problems, TMZ has learned.

D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries -- a clothing manufacturer -- just filed the countersuit against Lindsay in response to Lindsay's lawsuit against the company.

In her lawsuit, Lindsay says she struck a business deal with D.N.A.M. in 2009 allowing them to manufacture clothes for her "6126" clothing line -- but D.N.A.M. stiffed her on a massive licensing fee. Lindsay wants $1.1 million in damages.

But D.N.A.M. is now coming back at Lindsay for nearly five times that amount, insisting SHE'S the reason their business deal fell apart.

According to D.N.A.M., the company did its darndest to sell their 6126 clothes to high-end third party retailers -- but by spring 2010, no one would touch the brand ... because Lindsay was back in rehab ... and her legal problems were playing out in the media "like a Greek tragedy."

D.N.A.M. claims Lindsay's "drug-addled image" destroyed 6126's reputation, and rendered the clothing line completely unsellable.

D.N.A.M. says it invested millions in 6126 for nothing -- and now it's suing for breach of contract and fraud, demanding at least $5 million in damages.

And the irony ... Lindsay's currently back in rehab yet again.

Lindsay's attorney, Perry C. Wander, tells TMZ ... "The license agreement does not have a morals clause that allows the company to suspend payment for any behavior.  The contract is not in LL's name thus she cannot be held personally liable. The cross claim is therefore frivolous and totally without merit and will be defended vigorously."

She ruined a promising career all by herself. Blaming others is not going to make matters better. Until she is willing to take control of her own actions she will not move forward .

Dee you are getting better and better! No I didn't see Jodi in all her manipulative glory. I'm done watching her. She leaves a cold spot in my heart. Now it's time to enjoy the season as long as we don't get bad storms everywhere. NIKKI gets to start off the weekend with her birthday tomorrow. I wish we could give her that present she longs for! Oh I know what it is dear NIKKI ; that would be the deed to DUIna's house and one of your husbands bulldozers!

Lindsay Lohan Planning Post Rehab Party
Lindsay Lohan has reached rock bottom during her latest stint in rehab at the Betty Ford Center, after being denied Adderall during her 90-day court-required stay. But now, Lindsay has something to look forward to – a get out of rehab party!

“We are planning a huge celebration party to welcome her back,” a friend of Lindsay’s tells Naughty But Nice Rob. “We want her to know how much we have ALL missed her. She needs to know that while she has been away she has not been forgotten.”

It’s no secret that Lindsay had absolutely no desire to go back to rehab, and was forced to go by a Judge, in lieu of jail time. However, the party will not just be a chance to have fun with family and friends, it will also be an opportunity for Lohan to make some money.

“Of course the party will be sponsored,” added another pal. “It will be her first public appearance in over 90-days and the world’s press will all be attending. Brands will pay a fortune to have their logo on the step-and-repeat signage on the red carpet. Only a fool would be so silly as to not use this opportunity to make some cash.”

WOW! Some might argue that only a fool would plan a party in a nightclub when they have just left rehab! Just a thought.

They probably thought her bad girl image would be great for sales, but I’m sure they didn’t expect her to fall THAT hard with no end in sight. Still, they took a risk by teaming up with her, so I’m not sure they could win this.


I’m thinking this counter-suit was probably filed to get Lindsay to withdraw her original lawsuit. I don’t know much about Lindsay’s claim, but it would probably be best for her to try to settle this out of court.
