Getting into as much trouble as she does doesn't come cheap, report reveals
Being Lindsay Lohan isn't easy and it's certainly not cheap. According to a new report, since 2007, when she started on a downwards spiral, the actress has racked up no less than $1.45 million (€1.1 million) in legal fees only.Fans know that, these days, Lindsay is more famous for what she does in her personal life than for her work, i.e. for her movies.
Since 2007, she's been going in and out of rehab, in and out of courtroom, in and out of jail, and constantly in the headlines.
BooyahFacts is now saying that the entire madness around Lindsay Lohan cost her a pretty penny: a lot of them, to be more exact.
From rehab expenses to fines, court payments and legal counsel, Lindsay has spent an estimated $1.45 million (€1.1 million) on getting herself out of trouble.
That is to say, the money she reportedly made by posing for the latest issue of Playboy ($1 million / €719,476) wasn't enough to cover her impressive legal bill.
