Lindsay Lohan’s tumultuous career faces a new obstacle with a lawsuit filed against the starlet in a Nevada district court. Lorit Simon, represented by Snell & Wilmer L.L.P.‘s Las Vegas office, filed a complaint this month alleging that Lohan failed to provide payment for mobile tanning services. The complaint alleges that Lohan entered into various agreements with Simon, doing business as Tanning Vegas, beginning in November 2007. The alleged agreements provided for Simon to travel to numerous locations and supply mobile tanning services in exchange for payment by Lohan. Simon claims the agreements with Lohan lasted until May 2009. After providing mobile tanning services, Simon issued invoices declaring that payment for the mobile tanning services were to be received within fourteen days, and that late charges were applicable. The  complaint aslo alleges that Lohan breached the agreement and owes Simon $41,031.60 plus late fees. Simon, claiming breach of contract and unjust enrichment, is seeking in excess of $10,000 for each claim, attorney’s fees, and prejudgment interest on all amounts.

Lohan, whose acting career involves roles in films such as Herbie Fully Loaded (2005), Mean Girls (2004), and Freaky Friday (2003), is not a newcomer to legal troubles. Recently, Lohan was charged with one count of felony grand theft for allegedly stealing a necklace worth $2,500 from a Venice, California boutique. At the time of the alleged theft, Lohan was released only five weeks earlier from a court-ordered drug rehabilitation center, and was on probation for a 2007 drunk driving conviction. A judge set bond for Lohan at $20,000 for the alleged felony grand theft, and $20,000 for the probation violation. After setting the bond, Judge Keith Schwartz told Lindsay to “Look around this room. Everyone in this room has to follow the law: the DA, your attorney, the sheriff’s deputies, everybody. You are no different than anybody else.” If the breach of contract alleged by Simon in a Nevada district court is accurate, the presiding judge should inform Lohan that she has to pay her bills, just like everyone else.
