Lindsay Lohan Accused of Stealing ‘Virtual Wardrobe App’ Idea
Lindsay Lohan's lawyer has yet again defended the star against allegations of stealing, after it's been claimed the idea for her new 'virtual wardrobe' app, was not indeed hers to begin with.
The app allows users to see what the star is wearing and purchase it online, bringing her in some extra cash.
The Mean Girls actress is said to have struck a deal with web developer Fima Potik back in 2013 after she and her brother Michael Lohan, Jr. saw his app Spotted Friends, causing the actress to tweet her excitement about the idea in July 2013.
Mr Potik's idea allows users to see what a celeb is wearing and where they can buy the outfit from if they like it, almost mirroring the idea the Lohan siblings are claiming to own for their site Vigme.
According to In Touch Weekly, Michael Lohan has described his new business venture as 'If Lindsay buys something, it goes into her virtual closet. People see what's in her closet. If someone else buys the same item, it puts money into Lindsay's pocket.'
Looks very similar to us, especially as Lindsay has reportedly been issued with a cease and desist order threatening legal action if she doesn't stop.
However speaking to New York Post, Lindsay's lawyer said: "Allegations of any impropriety in Lindsay Lohan's business relationship concerning this Web site are inaccurate and clearly designed to capitalize on her worldwide recognition as a fashion icon."
The allegations couldn't have come at worse time for Lindsay, who is hoping to be taken as a serious actress again after securing the lead role in Speed the Plow in London's West End. The role sees the star take to the stage for her theatre debut in only a few weeks time.
