Lindsay Lohan Sues Clothing Label Partners For $1.1 Million
Lindsay Lohan sues her 6126 Collection clothing label partners for $1.1 million. The actress claims that the deal has entered default. The former Disney star was reportedly guaranteed a minimum of $900,000 in royalties and 10 percent of net sales.
Lohan spent some time in court again on Thursday, but this time she wasn’t the one in the defendant’s chair. The Canyons star filed the $1.1 million lawsuit against her clothing collection partners in federal court. The 6126 Collection lawsuit claims include breach of contract, trademark infringement, and fraud.
The star’s civil lawyer, Perry C. Wander, had this to say during an interview with the New York Daily News:
“They owe us a million dollars. We’re suing to force them to pay. The agreement did not have a morals clause, and Lindsay Lohan had no responsibility to promote the line, so there’s no defense for their actions. They’re trying to insert those as a defense, but they weren’t a part of this deal.”
Lindsay Lohan inked the 6126 Collection deal in 2008. The contract began before she was sentenced to a jail cell for DUI related offenses and her shoplifting conviction. The star’s civil attorney also stated that she is “very passionate” about fashion and re-launch the clothing line with a new partner, CBS Los Angeles notes.
Among the first offerings from Lindsay Lohan’s fashion line were cashmere leg warmers created with design partner Kristi Kaylor, and leggings. The clothing was sold as upscale stores like Fred Segal.
The actress reportedly created and trademarked the 6126 name as a way to honor her “heroine” Marilyn Monroe. The 1950s blonde bombshell’s birthday was June 1, 1926.
