It turns out that Lindsay Lohan’s dire financial situation is even worse than anyone could have imagined. Not only has she not paid her taxes and can’t make rent, but she’s also behind monthly payments of her storage locker, which means all its contents are about to go up for auction.
Lohan has been struggling financially for some years now, partly because she continued maintaining a very expensive lifestyle even though she wasn’t making any movies.
In recent weeks, more and more details about how badly she’s come emerged online. TMZ is now saying that things are actually even worse.
Apparently, the star owes $16,000 (€12,229) in unpaid bills to a California storage company.
“Sources close to Lindsay tell us, LiLo has fallen behind on paying her monthly bill and now owes roughly $16,000 [€12,229] to the storage company,” the e-zine writes.
The locker is said to contain several designer items such as clothes and shoes, but also family heirlooms and also what TMZ calls “potentially embarrassing items.” It does not specify what these could be.
“The account is now delinquent and the locker can't be opened until the balance is paid in full... and that's not going to happen because Lindsay doesn't have the cash. As we reported, her financial situation is so desperate the IRS has frozen her bank accounts because of unpaid back taxes,” TMZ writes.
If Lohan doesn’t come up with the money until Christmas, all the items in the locker will be sold at an auction, thus providing even further embarrassment for the star.
The bad news is that Lohan doesn’t have the money, TMZ says. She’s reportedly reached out to friends and family to help her out this once but, so far, no response from them.
As noted above, Lindsay’s financial situation has been making a lot of headlines as of late. Her Lifetime Liz Taylor biopic “Liz & Dick” was supposed to be her comeback vehicle, but also the project that would put her on a straight path financially, leading to other offers that would have paid the bills.
Since critics and audiences alike found the biopic ridiculously bad, it’s probably safe to assume producers aren’t exactly banging on her door.
