Lindsay Lohan: Suing former associates
LOS ANGELES -- Lindsay Lohan is suing her former collaborators on a line of clothing, seeking more than $1.1 million and renewed control of the brand’s trademarks.
The lawsuit claims a clothing manufacturer who previously worked with Lohan continues to sell items under the actress’ 6126 Collection.
The breach of contract, fraud and trademark infringement lawsuit filed in a Los Angeles federal court seeks royalties and other payments from D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries LLC.
The suit claims D.N.A.M. has failed to pay Lohan more than $1 million in royalties and has not abided by an agreement to seek the "Liz & Dick" star’s input on merchandise. D.N.A.M. also agreed to promote and expand the 6126 into swimwear, cosmetics and other apparel and open a showroom in New York, according to the lawsuit.
The case asks a judge to order the company to stop using the 6126 name and trademarks. Lohan named the clothing line after the June 1, 1926, birthdate of her idol, Marilyn Monroe.
"The purpose of this suit is to wrest control of her trademark away from this company that’s been selling items overseas and online under the 6126 trademark," her attorney Perry Wander said.
He said Lohan is looking forward to designing a new line and will negotiate with a new company to license her trademarks.
