It looks like our favorite struggling celebrity has finally found a way to make some money! Lindsay Lohanâs E-Trade lawsuit was settled outside of court yesterday, and sources told TMZ that the star cleared a pretty penny in the deal. Check out photos and videos on the story below!
Asking for $100 million in damages following a commercial aired by the company during the Super Bowl, the actress didnât reveal what they finally settled with. If you havenât seen a video of the commercial in question, check it out at the bottom of the page!
According to Stephanie Ovadia, lawyer of Lindsay Lohan, E-Trade used the starâs name in their commercial because of her association with alcoholism. While her photo wasnât used, the babies in the video kept referring to âLindsay the milkaholic.â
“Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit,â said Ovadia. âThey used the name Lindsay. They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”
Who did you picture when watching the commercial? Apparently very satisfied with the settlement, the actress is no doubt glad to have some good news in her otherwise trouble life. The actress has been attending AA meetings regularly in a last-ditch effort to regain control of her life, but has slipped on a couple of occasions.
âRegrettably, I did, in fact, fail my most recent drug test. Substance abuse is a disease which unfortunately doesnât go away overnight. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day,â
Still, good for her for sticking to the program anyway! Hopefully, this recent success can motivate her further. What do you think of the Lindsay Lohan E-Trade settlement?
