Lindsay Lohan has been in rare form lately.
Actually, she's been in the exact form we've come to expect, but it would be rare for anyone else on the planet.
To her credit, Linds has slowed down on the partying, but that doesn't mean she's any less batsh-t these days.
If anything, sober Lindsay might actually be more of a handful now that she's "settled down."
The rumors about her personal life have gone from "I heard she sleeps face-down in a pile of cocaine" to "she might actually be a spy for the Turkish government," and it seems her inner circle is becoming more and more fed up.
Page Six is reporting today that Lohan's longtime publicist Hunter Frederick has cut ties with the actress after growing weary of her increasingly erratic behavior.
“You never know what Lindsay you’re going to get," a source says of Lindsay.
"One second she’s in a great mood and wanting to get things back together, and the next you can’t say anything to make her happy,”
Apparently, a big part of the reason that so many former Lohan loyalists are jumping ship these days is that she recently went from being a wealthy psychopath to a relatively poor one.
“She’s going to have a really hard time finding a new publicist not only because she’s radioactive and no one wants to represent her, but the monthly retainer alone would render her bankrupt,” says the insider.
Plus, there's that problem of the fact talking to someone who insists on using a fake, made-up accent can get pretty irritating.
It seems that of particular annoyance to Frederick was the fact that despite her financial difficulties, Lindsay habitually turns down lucrative job offers.
"[She] just doesn’t want to take them for whatever reason,” says the insider.
We imagine that's quite frustrating for the folks whose job it is to ensure that these offers continue to roll in.
The source says Lindsay can still command up to $15,000 for a sponsored Instagram post, and the ease of making enough money to get by through social media and non-entertainment-related business ventures has basically turned her off of acting.
The fact that she's no longer bringing in enough cash to pay her staff doesn't seem to concern her.
Of course, in recent months, Lindsay's efforts to keep the cash rolling in have become increasingly desperate, leading her into the aforementioned business partnership with the Turkish government, as well as a gig promoting a Greek nightclub called - what else? - Lohan.
It's not hard to see why continuing to try and breathe new life into the career of an" actress turned club promoter and part-time social media ambassador for Turkey" doesn't hold much appeal for Frederick.
