Lindsay Lohan sued by HarperCollins over breached book deal contract
Publisher Harper Collins is suing Lindsay Lohan for $365k after Mean Girls star failed to even turn in a draft of a book she is contractually obligated to write.
Crossheart Productions, Lohan’s company, entered into a contract with HarperCollins on March 27, 2014 for a book that was originally due a year later, a lawsuit filed at the Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday stated.
Harper Collins agreed in 2016 to push back her deadline to March 15, 2017 after Lohan had already been paid the advance.
“By failing to return the money to the Plaintiff upon the Defendants’ breach of the agreement, the Defendants have received a windfall and have been unjustly enriched,” the suit stated.
HarperCollins lawyer Jeffrey Maidenbaum confirmed, “She did not turn in a manuscript and the book was never published.”
HarperCollins is now seeking the cost of the advance, with interest, as well as the cost of legal fees and “further relief as this Court deems to be just and proper.”
