Lindsay 'is refusing to discuss miscarriage or sobriety in court' as part of clothing line lawsuit



Lindsay Lohan is allegedly refusing to be questioned in court after making a sworn statement that she had a miscarriage.

The actress is fighting to overturn a $5 million lawsuit over her clothing line 6126 - a case she lost last year after failing to respond to the lawsuit.

Earlier this month, TMZ claimed Lindsay's court documents cited her miscarriage as one of the reasons she failed to respond - therefore losing the case.


The reports stated that Lindsay's documents said: 'I have been overwhelmed since leaving rehab and dealing with my sobriety and a miscarriage.'

Now D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries, the manufacturers of her failed line, are said to be requesting to cross-examine her.

Radar Online alleges that the company specifically wish to quiz the 27-year-old about her miscarriage in Los Angeles on June 5.

But after the request was apparently made on May 9, Lindsay’s lawyers responded three days later claiming this would not be necessary to the case.

The Mean Girls star’s attorney stated in court documents obtained by TMZ that this "would invade her right of privacy and provide the court no guidance in its ruling.

"The court does not need the media circus that would ensue if [D.N.A.M.’s counsel] is allowed to invade Lohan’s privacy and delve into her mental state regarding her sobriety and miscarriage."

Her lawyers added that Lindsay would be unable to testify in Los Angeles because she is a New York resident, Radar claims.

MailOnline has contacted Lindsay’s representative for comment.

The former child star previously explained suffering a miscarriage was one of the reasons she took a couple of weeks off from filming her in-depth programme for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.

She said during the season finale of Lindsay: "No one knows this, I had a miscarriage for those two weeks that I took off. It's a very long story."

Lindsay did not reveal the identity of the father when she made the confession and her representative did not respond when contacted by MailOnline for comment.

The Canyons star sued D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries in January 2013 for $1 million, alleging that they did not pay royalties or substantially advertise the line.

However the company then countersued the star for $5 million, claiming that sales were affected by Lindsay’s bad reputation.
