When Lindsay Lohan backed out of her highly-anticipated Barbara Walters interview earlier this week, there was speculation that she simply did not want to have to answer questions about the many various dramas in her personal life. As we know, LiLo has kind of a hard time actually taking responsibility for anything, which is why it really pleased me to see that she was at least handling one of her legal issues. Back in 2009, Lindsay racked up about $90,000 in charges with a limo company (how does that happen?!?!). When she refused to pay up the company sued her, but it looks like they have come to a settlement agreement. Click inside for more!
TMZ has the report:
Lindsay Lohan has closed the door on one of her many legal problems and settled out of court with the limo company that claimed she screwed them out of almost $100,000 … TMZ has learned.
As TMZ first reported, Elite Transportation Limo and Security Services sued the actress, claiming she used their primo services (we’re talking up to $6k /hour) from February to May 2009, but never paid the bill. They claimed she racked up a tab of $90,585.79.
LiLo and the limo company settled their beef by striking a deal outside the courtroom and we’re told Lindsay coughed up close to the full amount she owed.
The case was dismissed by both parties this week.
Lindsay probably didn’t celebrate too much considering she’ll soon be charged with lying to cops following after a nasty car wreck on the PCH back in June.
It’s true– Lindsay‘s got plenty more work to do before she’s ‘in the clear.’ And, considering the events of the past few months, plenty could happen between now and then, lol. However, it’s good to see Lindsay handling something. Although, in all fairness, we did see her (or someone else) take care of that $46,000 Chateau Marmont bill too. Hopefully this is one step in the right direction towards better times for Lindsay. Baby steps, Lindsay! Baby steps…
