Lindsay Lohan has settled a lawsuit brought by publisher HarperCollins claiming she took a $365,000 advance for a book deal but never delivered a manuscript, new court papers reveal.
The terms were not disclosed in the settlement papers filed Friday in Manhattan Supreme Court, which said the suit was “discontinued.”
In the September 2020 lawsuit, HarperCollins said the “Mean Girls” star and her company Crossheart Productions entered into a contract on March 27, 2014, for a book that was due a year later.
Lohan, 36, was slated to write a book about her troubled life based on her journal from her 2013 stint in rehab. The tome was predicted to be worth $1 million.
While the publisher gave Crossheart the advance — which was then transferred to the “Freaky Friday” actress — the book never materialized even after a two-year extension to March 15, 2017, the suit claimed.The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.NBCU Photo Bank/NBCUniversal via
HarperCollins in 2018 canceled the contract and demanded a return of the advance.
Lohan’s lawyer said Monday the lawsuit was settled “years ago,” while the settlement papers were signed and dated Friday.
“The matter was resolved years ago. The recent filing of the dismissal paperwork by plaintiff’s counsel was ministerial,” attorney Andrew Brettler told The Post.
HarperCollins’ lawyer didn’t return a request for comment Monday.
