It appears that Lindsay Lohan might have figured out why many attorneys are avoiding her like the plague. As you may have heard, Lindsay fired her attorney Shawn Holley — but was left owing her a ton of money in attorney’s fees. That’s what Shawn gets for keeping Lindsay’s freckled self out of the pokey for over five years. She gets canned and unpaid — that’s gratitude for ya! But, she is trying to cut back her expenses so that Shawn can get her money. Crackie logic… TMZ reports:
Lindsay Lohan is telling friends she was clueless until a few days ago that she owed Shawn Holley a small fortune in attorney’s fees, but we’re told now that she knows she’s putting Shawn at the top of her creditor’s list.
It’s hard to swallow … that Lindsay didn’t know how much she owed Shawn. We’ve been reporting for weeks it’s in the 6 figures. Sources quite familiar with the situation tell TMZ, Lindsay owes Shawn $150,000.
It’s interesting … although Lindsay fired Shawn … our sources tell us she’s been making a full-court press for more than a week to get her back, but Shawn isn’t having it.
We’re told Lindsay has instructed her business manager to pay the tab ASAP. Lindsay is making money from appearances, endorsements and some acting gigs, but she’s been spending like an insane woman — first class plane tickets, expensive hotels, restaurants, clothes, etc. Lindsay says she’ll cut back so Shawn gets paid.
One thing that won’t go away … Lindsay still owes $130,000 in back taxes … and now she has a new lawyer — one she doesn’t even want — who will undoubtedly be racking up his own bill.
You don’t really believe that she didn’t know that she owed her awesome lawyer over a hundred thousand dollars, do you? We owe a bill for ten bucks and it’s on our minds until it gets paid! Who else thinks she’s full of it?
