Lindsay Lohan sued for failure to pay stylists
[dropcap]L[/dropcap]indsay Lohan is in hot water — again — now that a “stylist management company” is alleging she stiffed them, suing the former Mean Girls star for fraud, failure to pay for services rendered and breach of contract. The suit, launched by Exclusive Artists Management, Inc., claims it booked a hairstylist and makeup artist for Lohan “by and through” a company called EFO Films (a co-defendant in the suit along with Lindsay) that reps stylists, acting as a middleman between the stylists and the clients.
The suit alleges that in January 2014, Lindsay and EFO hired a hairstylist and makeup artist to work with Lilo while she was in Sundance to announce she’d be starring in a new film called Inconceivable.
“Over a year later, the film appears to remain ‘in development’ because insuring Ms. Lohan turned out to be ‘inconceivable’ for the insurance industry,” reads the lawsuit in one of its funnier sections. “Nevertheless, Ms. Lohan appeared for interviews and, according to various reports, looked a lot like her beautiful pre-rehab self. Many remarked it was the best they had seen her in years.” The company claims they’ve been trying to get paid the agreed-upon $2,500 fee for more than a year, but has yet to see a dime.
Exclusive Artists Management is seeking $77,500 for all unpaid wages, including waiting time penalties and interest, as well as payment of attorneys’ fees.
