Cash Strapped Lindsay Lohan slapped with $1 million lawsuit

Short of dosh for counseling? Darn it that necklace would have come in handy about now.

Hollywood Actress Lindsay Lohan has been slapped with a $1 million assault lawsuit in a week when her lawyer said Lohan was having trouble finding affordable counseling.

Dawn Bradley, a former employee of a California rehab centre filed the civil lawsuit claiming Lindsay Lohan yelled at her, threw a phone, grabbed her wrist and twisted it when asked to submit to a breathalyzer test in December at the Betty Ford Center near Palm Springs.

Bradley claimed she suffered “significant injury” to her wrist as well as “post-traumatic stress syndrome requiring several therapy sessions.” Bradley is seeking damages of $US1 million as well as medical expenses.

Newswarped thinks that Dawn Bradley should get over it. This epidemic in America of using lawsuits against celebrities and anyone else with money as a way of getting rich is a blight on society.

Lots of people working in social services get yelled at every day and even get their wrists grabbed. It is not ideal, but we don’t see them crying off to the court house in an attempt to get rich.

On the counseling front, Lindsay Lohan was ordered to undergo psychological counseling earlier this year as part of her sentence for stealing a gold necklace in January.

But her lawyer told a court hearing on Thursday that Lohan had not yet enrolled in therapy because finding low-cost, individual treatment was proving a challenge.

“I find it hard to believe that she can’t afford counseling,” responded Melanie Chavira, the prosecutor at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office who is overseeing Lohan’s case.

Judge Stephanie Sautner replied that she did not wish to speculate on Lohan’s finances, but added:

“She needs to get into counseling. I am going to give her 21 days (to enroll).

“I don’t know whether she is working or what she is doing to get an income…If she doesn’t have the means, maybe she knows someone who can help out.”

Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Holley said Lohan indicated that finding financial aid would not be necessary.

Newswarped thinks it is time that Lindsay got to work again. Talking about going back to work does not pay the bills.
