Manufacturer files $5M countersuit against Lindsay Lohan's leggings company
Earlier this year, Lindsay Lohan and her business partner, Kristi Kaylor, filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer of her fledgling 6126 leggings line, claiming that DNAM was still selling items from the line despite numerous breaches of contract. Now, DNAM is hitting back with a counter claim stating that soon after 2010, buyers stopped flocking to 6126 designs "because they did not want to be associated with Lohan's drug addled image." The suit goes on to claim that while Lohan was in rehab in 2011, business dropped off and "no one would touch the line" because of the actress’ sullied reputation.
Calling the countersuit "frivolous," Kaylor tells E! News: "DNAM knows that it is in breach of the 6126 licensee agreement, and this suit is clearly nothing more than a transparent defense maneuver. Lindsay and I worked for over three years to build the 6126 brand and ensure its success; DNAM is merely trying to get out of honoring its financial obligations."
