Lindsay Lohan ‘sued by HarperCollins for failing to write a book’… after they paid her $365K advance for tell-all memoir that never materialized
Lindsay Lohan is reportedly being sued by publishing company HarperCollins for failing to write a book despite being paid a handsome advance to do so.
HarperCollins claim that Lohan, 34, breached a contract that she signed with them in March 2014, with a promise to turn in the title – rumored to be a tell-all biography – by May 2015, which never materialized.
In legal documents filed by the publishing house, they claim Lohan was given a revised date of March 2017 to get it finished, and that they even paid her an advance of $365k against future royalties, TMZ reports.

‘It’s more or less an autobiography, but she had a minimal number of sample pages,’ a source told PageSix at the time.

In 2014, during an appearance on – where else – but Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Lohan spoke about her list of lovers, which must have clearly caught the attention of the publishing industry.
InTouch weekly had published a hand-written list of famous men that Lohan allegedly slept with, and referring to the photo she said: ‘That was actually my fifth step in AA at Betty Ford.’
‘And someone, when I was moving during the OWN show, must have taken a photo of it. And so that’s a really personal thing and it’s really unfortunate…’
