Writer Harpercollins is suing Lindsay Lohan for almost $400,000, claiming the actress never delivered a manuscript for a book deal struck over six years in the past, new courtroom papers say.
The “Imply Women” star, and her firm Crossheart Productions, entered right into a contract with HarperCollins on March 27, 2014 for a book that was initially due a 12 months later, a Manhattan Supreme Courtroom lawsuit from Thursday alleges.
The publishing home gave Crossheart a $365,000 advance for the deal which “was given to Lohan,” however the manuscript never materialized — even with a two 12 months extension on the deadline to March 15, 2017, the courtroom papers declare.
By September 2018, HarperCollins let the “Freaky Friday” actress’s reps know they had been terminating the contract and demanding a return of the advance, the submitting says.
“By failing to return the cash to the Plaintiff upon the Defendants’ breach of the settlement, the Defendants have acquired a windfall and have been unjustly enriched,” the go well with fees.
HarperCollins lawyer Jeffrey Maidenbaum confirmed, “She didn’t flip in a manuscript and the book was never revealed.”
Lohan was slated to put in writing a book about her troubled life largely based mostly on a journal she saved throughout her 2013 stint in rehab. The book deal was slated to be value $1 million.
Her reps didn’t instantly return requests for remark.
