Lindsay Lohan is being accused of scamming more than $17,000 worth of designer clothing from Church Boutique — including many items made of fur and leather.
The company claims that Lohan made the purchases between November 2009 and February 2010 and was billed a total of $ 17,060.83 — but she paid only $180.
The shop owners' attorney, Bill Crockett, tells E! News, "Filing suit was the last thing we wanted to do, but after six months of not being paid, my clients were left with no choice. They started this business from scratch, and that they have been successful in attracting an elite clientele does not mean they should be abused."
Naturally, PETA has jumped on the news saying, “We don’t know if Lindsay stole the clothes from the boutique, but we do know that the skins were stolen from their rightful owners — animals. The only victims here are the snakes and other exotic animals who are nailed to trees, bludgeoned with hammers, and skinned alive in the name of ‘fashion.’”
This isn't the first time PETA has found time to mock Lohan over her poor fashion sense. In 2008, a supporter of the organization threw a bag of flour at the actress in Paris, shouting "Lindsay Lohan — fur hag!"
PETA Europe released a statement saying, "Lindsay Lohan might be able to ignore images of bloody animals skinned alive for their pelts, but we hope a dash of flour will help her rise to the occasion and forsake fur once and for all.”
