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."

I've never heard of the clothing line, but regardless of her legal/drug problems, if they signed a contract with Lindsay they must honor it. Unless the contract stated that Lindsay must stay out of trouble. Which I doubt that it did, because otherwise she would not be famous (still).

Go to RO for the real story as you won't find negatives about Kardashians here. Monday night as this tragedy was unfolding, Kim Kardashian was plugging one of her beauty products - that's how much she cares. While other celebs were posting aid and help for victims, Kimmy was hawking her bronzer.

July 6th was an injustice and it was that sentence which landed Lindsay back in rehab. Both times.

If you look at at timeline of Lohan's legal problems, it's going to be hard for D.N.A.M. to convince a judge or jury that they didn't know her reputation when they signed their deal in 2009. At that point, she had 2 DUIs, a couple of coke busts and at least 3 trips to rehab under her belt.

Sorry 6126 but by 2009 Lohan was notorious for her drug addled wats and legal battles. There was no way they didn't know she had a terrible reputation yet they entered into a contract with her willingly. They knew what they were getting and likely hoped the notoriety her name brought would help promote their line, but it apparently back fired. Like the old saying goes "If you lie with dogs, you'll wake up with fleas."

Lindsay's first DUIs were in 2007 and her first trip to rehab was even before that. Her lawyers will win this.

Lindsay Lohan has been getting in trouble with the law since 2007. If this company was dumb enough to hire this well known drug user , alcoholic criminal back in 2009 then it is their own fault.

Good riddance!    

So you finally hit rock bottom and come to the realization that you need help. You pick out a well known rehab that, unless you're fairly well off, is going to be a major financial investment to go to. You make your decision and everything is looking promising now and then you check in and find out this complete and utter festering boil on the anus of society is there to make a total selfish mockery of everything you are doing to help yourself get better. Talk about getting totally screwed. Oh yeah, sure, just ask for a refund or a raincheck on your life and wait 3 months or until this a-hole goes to jail and then just mosey back in like nothing happened!
