We KNEW there must've been a reason why!
After Lindsay Lohan dismissed her clutch lawyer Shawn Holley for a much shadier one we were all like what?!?!
But new evidence makes the logic behind her actions MUCH clearer!
Apparently, Lohan owes her recently fired lawyer over $300,000 in unpaid legal fees and hasn't made a single payment to her in half a year!!!
Here's what one source said:
“Lindsay owes Shawn over $300k in legal fees and she hasn’t made any payments to her in over six months. Lindsay hadn’t paid anything for any of the work Shawn has done on her three new criminal charges of lying to cops, in connection with her car accident in Santa Monica last summer. Shawn has kept Lindsay out of jail for over five years now and she has no idea how good she has had it. Shawn is extremely respected by judges and prosecutors and that has benefited Lindsay greatly. Lindsay’s new criminal attorney, Mark Heller, isn’t even based in Los Angeles and certainly doesn’t have the revered reputation that Shawn does.”
But then if Lindsay can barely pay her ex lawyer what she owes her, how can her new lawyer reasonably expect the troubled actress to pony up the dough she'll owe him?!
Here was one source's thoughts:
“I suspect that Lindsay’s new attorney is either representing her for a reduced fee, or not charging her at all. I think Mark wants the publicity that representing Lindsay Lohan can bring.”
And bring she shall!
We sincerely hope that Lindsay can somehow remove herself from this tangled mess she's in, but how she can pull it off - we have no idea!!!
