Lindsay Lohan has been laying pretty low of recent, but it seems like that may be about to change as the actress is being accused of stealing, yet again.
This time however, she is being accused of digital theft.
Page Six reports, "Lindsay Lohan is facing an ugly legal battle after she and her younger brother, Michael Jr., allegedly lifted the idea for a fashion e-commerce site from a former business associate."
Apparently, Lindsay and her brother agreed to work with Fima Potik and collaborate on his startup, Spotted Friend, an app that allows users to access the “virtual closets” of their friends and celebs, identifying the designers of their clothing and then possibly buying the same item if it is something they like.
Then, Michael started working on a site called Vigme. He described it by saying, “If Lindsay buys something, it goes into her [virtual] closet. People see what’s in her closet. If someone else buys [the same item], it puts money into Lindsay’s pocket.”
Sounds pretty similar.
And now, after seeing this, Fima and his lawyers are suing Lindsay and Michael for stealing his idea.
“In 2014, after being members of the company for over a year, without any warning, the Lohans and Mr. Roth launched a competing company and improperly took proprietary information and intellectual property from Spotted Friend to start the new business. We intend to take all action necessary . . . to protect Spotted Friend’s and Mr. Potik’s legal rights and commercial interests," sad Fima's lawyer.
Mr. Roth is Christopher Roth, Michael's business partner.
Lindsay's lawyer is claiming this is all nonsense and an attempt to "capitalize on [Lindsay's] worldwide recognition as a fashion icon."
Lindsay has yet to comment on the situation.
