HarperCollins is suing Lindsay Lohan after she breached the terms of a book deal. The actress signed a deal with the book publishers back in March 2014, promising to deliver a manuscript by May 2015.
According to reports, Lohan was even paid a book advance to the sum of US$365,000 to cover future royalties.
When she did not meet the deadline, HarperCollins then pushed it back to March 2017 but still the actress did not hold up her end of the bargain.
“The publisher says it informed her in September 2018 the book deal was off, and it wanted its money back.”
Two years have now passed, and HarperCollins claims Lohan has still not refunded the cash. Now they are demanding the money back and want the actress to pay their legal fees as well.
Lohan’s book deal first made news in 2015, when it was reported she was offered US$1 million to write about her rehab stint.
The 34-year-old actress had documented her 2013 stay in rehab through a series of diary entries, which she had agreed to publish in her memoir.
Her book deal was announced by Page Six days after Lohan opened up about her sobriety struggle in a docu-series simply titled Lindsay that aired on Oprah Winfrey’s network OWN.
In the eight-part series, Lohan discussed her issues with substance abuse.
“I’m learning how to deal with life in a different light than I have before, and in a different way that I have before,” she said on camera. “And at the end of the day, my main objective is to maintain my sobriety.”
