Lindsay Lohan’s financial woes appear to be never-ending.
A Los Angeles boutique named Church filed a lawsuit Wednesday against Lohan in the amount of $16,880.63 claiming the starlet owes them for unpaid merchandise and told RadarOnline.com that after six months they were left with no other choice.
Bill Crocket, a partner in the law firm representing Church boutique (Tough As Nails LLC) tells RadarOnline.com in an exclusive statement, “Filing suit was the last thing we wanted to do, but after six months of not being paid, my clients were left with no choice.
“They started this business from scratch, and that they have been successful in attracting an elite clientele does not mean they should be abused.”
According to the documents filed on Wednesday, Lohan “established a relationship with Plaintiff (Lindsay Lohan) and on various occasions purchased clothes, jewelry and accessories” in a period spanning from “in or about November, 2009 and continuing through February, 2010.”
RadarOnline.com has learned that the merchandise purchased by Lohan included shoes, jewelry, leggings, t-shirts and a leather trench coat. Also, the owners said they made an attempt to contact and resolve the issue with Lohan first before eventually filing papers.
The document states that the total of Lohan’s purchases was $17,060.83 but says she paid $180, leaving the remaining balance at $16,880.63.
The boutique is seeking the remaining balance from Lohan, as well as punitive damages, interest, court costs and lawyer fees.
