Lindsay Lohan — who will be arraigned Wednesday morning in Los Angeles on three misdemeanor charges, including lying to police about a traffic accident last summer — is negotiating for a very lucrative endorsement deal that would net her close to $500,000, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned her recent arrest, hard-partying lifestyle and troubled behavior might put the kibosh on the deal.
In March, a clothing line named Odaingerous contacted Lindsay’s camp in an effort to get the starlet to sign on as a spokesperson for their brand and the two sides have been negotiating ever since — but things have gone from good to worse, and it looks like Lindsay could lose the deal.
“When Odaingerous first contacted Lindsay it seemed like a good fit because she was on the up-and-up. She had just signed to Liz & Dick and was supposed to have this great career comeback,” an insider close to the situation exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com.
“But none of that happened, and now even her agents are hesitant that she won’t get her act together.”
And it couldn’t be a worse time for Lindsay to lose out on such a large payday because her bank accounts were seized by the IRS earlier this month after it was discovered she owes $233,000 for unpaid taxes in 2009 and 2010.
“Not only was Lindsay going to bank on this deal…$500,000 just for the campaign, but her people were majorly negotiating extra for her to make any appearances,” the insider said.
The source admits the deal isn’t completely off the table yet, but says it’s looking grim for Lindsay.
“There was going to be an announcement soon about Lindsay being the face of the company, but they don’t exactly want their spokesperson to be in jail,” the source said.
As we previously reported, Lindsay, 26, is facing the potential of serious jail time for violating her probation when she lied to authorities about being behind the wheel of her Porsche when it crashed into the back of a big-rig on the Pacific Coast Highway in June.
