Sources close to the show tell Star magazine that the troubled actress was "drinking since almost day one of filming" and consistently failed to fulfill the obligations of her contract.
"Lindsay agreed to be authentic and give the cameras full access to her life, but she didn't," said the insider. "Instead, she didn't film when she agreed to and did almost no publicity for the show."
To make matters worse, Lindsay's financial woes are reportedly far worse than originally thought. LiLo has already burned through the $2 million she received to film the OWN network series and an anonymous friend claims she's "100 percent broke."
Sources say the reality series and her partnership with Oprah represented Lindsay's last chance - not only to resurrect her lifeless career but also to rehabilitate her horrendous financial situation.
As many expected, Lindsay failed on both fronts - burning cash and bridges in the manner for which she's become notorious.
"The only money she got was from Oprah and that's over now," says the series insider.
We think Linds may have finally crossed the line between funny f*ck-up and tragic trainwreck.
