I know I have a pretty much zero tolerance policy when it comes to posting Lindsay Lohan on the site. The only exceptions are of course when something truly awful happens to her and we can all smile. Not awful like died, but awful like her fame and money might be screeching to a halt kind of awful.
A chemist in Florida is suing Lindsay, Lorit Simon and the company Sevin Nyne because allegedly they stole her spray tan formula. Before I get started with this, can I just say that if that is what Lindsay has been wearing on her skin I am not so sure I would be jumping to the front of the line saying, "I invented it."
Of course Lindsay claimed along with Lorit that the two of them spent years inventing it. Lorit, the woman who air brushes people for a living and Lindsay, the woman who says, "duh," as much as Homer says "doh." Most of the time when you read about people saying an idea for a movie was theirs or a song sounds the same are just blowing smoke and will almost always lose.
In this case though, these don't appear to be idle threats. Lindsay and company are being sued for for breach of contract, theft of trade secrets, civil conspiracy, intentional interference with contractual relations and deceptive and unfair trade practices.
Now, I haven't seen the papers filed in the suit. It is interesting though that Lindsay was sued individually. If she actually had to pay out of her own pocket to defend this suit rather than as an employee of the corporation, a lawsuit like this could run through whatever money Lindsay has very quickly. The legal fees in defending something like this will be incredibly high and I am not sure she has the funds to defend it as an individual.
