Considering that Lindsay Lohan was a pretty prominent figure in Hollywood from an early age and Saoirse Ronan is really only coming into her own as an actress that we respect but don’t actually know all that well, it’s a bit of a stretch, but I don’t know this girl and I think she’s talented, so let’s give her the benefit of the doubt, shall we?
Showbiz is full of enablers and pushers who will basically get your ass into all kinds of trouble if you happen to be so inclined, vaguely suggestable or a minor with a parent who cares more about your money or your well-being, so it’s very lucky for Saoirse that she didn’t go down the same path as Lindsay.
Lindsay Lohan can’t catch a break. They took her freedom and they took her Adderall, and now they want to take what little money she’s got left, too. You see, she’s being sued for $5 million by the company that released her line of leggings, who claim that her “drug-addled image” caused low sales. Uh, you do realise that you signed a deal with LINDSAY LOHAN, right? This wasn’t Taylor Swift’s legging line and Lindsay just showed up the day of the shoot. What the hell is wrong with people?
An apparel manufacturer that partnered with Lohan’s leggings line 6126 is firing back at the actress’ 2013 lawsuit over a licensing dispute, claiming that the embattled star’s tarnished reputation severely hampered the company’s ability to suitably peddle her clothing line to buyers.
In a $5 million breach-of-contract counter claim filed against Lohan Friday in a California U.S. District Court and obtained by E! News, clothing company DNAM alleges that while the starlet’s leggings line initially enjoyed some success at department stores in 2010, buyers eventually began to pull back “because they did not want to be associated with Lohan’s drug addled image.”
The complaint states that in the spring of 2011, buyers canceled appointments and customers canceled orders, noting that “no one would touch the line.” Lohan, who was in rehab at the time, was unable to endorse the brand or provide feedback, the lawsuit alleges.
The company claims that Lohan’s legal troubles and her supposed drug and alcohol addictions devalued the brand, and it its seeking $5 million in damages.
I just… don’t get what’s wrong with people. Newsflash: If you enter a legal agreement to produce and sell Lindsay Lohan’s clothing, you’d better be prepared for people who don’t like Lindsay Lohan not to buy it and for sales to suffer because of it. It’s not like her popularity JUST took a nosedive (and in fact it’s not her popularity that’s waned, it’s her reputation/respectability), so these people need to STFU.
Lindsay Lohan is really not having a very good month everything. And now we can add this mix of awkward and OMG and LOL to her pile of woes. Though I think it’s time to leave Lohan alone in the sense of, let’s not criticize her hair while she’s in rehab, I don’t disagree with the statement on this shirt, worn by Jonathan Bennett who played Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls. He was the one who was Regina George’s ex and then Lohan’s character liked him so all kinds of wacky hijinks ensued.
Anyway Mr. “Doesn’t Aaron Look Sexy With His Hair Pushed Back?” found this tee in a store in LA, took a pic, and posted it on Facebook. Then my guess is his publicist freaked out or Lohan fans got real mad, so he told Yahoo (via Zimbio),
I tried on the T-shirt ironically to point out the ridiculousness of the public and media obsession with her. I actually am really happy she’s in rehab and seems to be doing well. She was one of the most talented young actresses I have ever worked with. I just want her to get better. It makes me sad to think about that spark and that brightness that is inside her that’s been covered by her addictions. … I’m here for her. She’ll be back and she’s gonna be big. Just you watch.
