Well, this would help explain Lindsay Lohan’s tax problems.
The actress has had a rough few years with the law, and in life, but now it looks as if her arrest for punching Tiffany Mitchell barely registers on the #LohanProblems scale.
Despite big paydays from Playboy, Liz & Dick and other projects over the past year, Lindsay is struggling each month just to pay the rent on her Beverly Hills mansion.
The amount is a (relatively) modest $8,000, no less.
Insiders say fiscal responsibility has never been the 26-year-old’s strong suit, and that her finances took a turn for the worse when the IRS seized her bank accounts.
Lohan has been forced to hit up pals for money; Charlie Sheen cut her a check for $100,000 without being asked, but even that’s not enough to bail her out.
She’s believed to have earned at least $2 million since January 2011, which is baffling; $8,000 a month in rent for two YEARS would only come to $192,000.
Lindsay tried getting out of the lease and moving out early, but the home’s owners have told LiLo that they will seek the full amount plus damages if she does.
In the meantime, she’s riding it out until February, when the lease expires and she can move into another place she can’t afford and refuses to take responsibility for.
SIDE NOTE: If the IRS is pissed because you don’t pay hundreds of thousands in taxes, shouldn’t you at least have more cash on hand, by virtue of not paying taxes?
Apparently not. As we said … #LohanProblems.
