As if Lindsay Lohan didn’t have enough problems contending with her father’s meddling in her life, it appears she has other — bigger — probs to contend with. According to TMZ (who usually tends to get these things right more than they get them wrong), Linds is in a world of financial trubs … and she doesn’t seem to have many viable options for getting herself out of that trouble. It is being reported that L. Lo had failed to pay 2 months of rent and was almost evicted before she had to pony up and shell out over $20,000 just to pay what she owed. Considering the fact that she was recently fired from her post as “Creative Director” at Emanuel Ungaro and doesn’t appear to have any substantial work in her future, her inability to pay her rent on time seems like it could be a big problem. Is it possible that the once millionairess is now broke?
Lindsay Lohan is broke — so much so, she can’t even pay her rent on time, sources tell TMZ. We’ve learned Lindsay was two months behind in rent and her landlord sent her a legal notice to pay or get out. Lindsay just paid her landlord $23,000 to become current. What’s worse … Lindsay isn’t pulling in any income and her prospects for work are almost non-existent because of substance abuse issues … according to our sources. In the few days since TMZ published the story that friends and professionals are deeply afraid for Lindsay, the situation has become even more dire. We’re told there is still a strong feeling — even resignation — that Lindsay will die soon if she doesn’t get help. There is deep frustration among the remaining people in Lindsay’s world that her mom, Dina, is enabling her daughter by insisting Lindsay is fine. As for how Lindsay could possibly be in compliance with her alcohol education program — all she’s required to do is go to the classes and refrain from driving. Drug and alcohol testing are not part of the drill. More evidence of Lindsay’s situation: last night she went to Les Deux, where she once again fell — hard — on her way out of the club. After the crash, she got up, dusted herself off … and went to another nightclub.
And the hits just keep on comin’. In all honesty, I highly doubt that Lindsay is totally broke … right now … but I can see how the life she has been living will totally deplete her resources if she doesn’t get new, lucrative work — soon. A few weeks ago, there was a report that Lindsay had teamed up with Christian Audigier to design a new line of purses for Ed Hardy … but she has since shot down those reports as false. As tacky as it would be to work for Ed Hardy, at least it would’ve been a pretty substantive paycheck. What really sucks is that there seems to be no one out there to really help her … her father just seems to want to use her public problems for his own PR gain and her mother appears to have her head buried in the sand, denying that her daughter has any problems at all. I fear that Lindsay‘s story may have a tragic end … which is so sad because she showed so much promise as a young actress. She definitely has the power to turn her life around … if she wants to. I hope, for her sake, she comes to that realization sooner rather than later … before it’s too late.
