Gossip, Lindsay Lohan
|Lindsay Lohan summoned to be questioned in her mom Dina's fraud case|
Lindsay Lohan has been summoned to be questioned in her mom Dina's court battle over a music deal reports TMZ.
Just last week, Lindsay Lohan went home "dehydrated" from the set of her new film "Georgia Rule." Then the head of the film's production company sent her a letter chastising her for what he called her "discourteous, irresponsible and unprofessional" behavior and her poor attendance record on the set. Then her British record label dumped her.
Dina Lohan is being sued for fraud after signing her daughter to a record deal with producers Antonio Almeida and Mitchell Chait. Almeida and Chait claim that in 2002 and 2003 they helped Lindsay cut half of the tracks of her album "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen." The suit alleges tens of thousands of dollars were given to Lohan, but the star jumped ship and recorded the album with music mogul Tommy Mottola instead, leaving them high and dry.
Lindsay has now been subpoenaed to testify in this case, according to documents filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Meanwhile, NYDN reports there is a reason why Harry Morton is such a good influence on Lindsay Lohan. Morton's half-sister, the model turned bounty hunter Domino Harvey, died around this time last year of what was largely suspected to be a drug overdose, after years of battling substance abuse.
Now he wants Lohan to practice sobriety, too, says a pal, who adds that the teen queen has since vowed to friends "she will stay away from booze altogether."
Friends of Lohan say that studio exec James Robinson's angry letter to the starlet, accusing her of missing filming due to wild partying, couldn't have come at a worse time.
