Report: Lindsay Lohan Broke, Dragging Mom Down With Her

Report: Lindsay Lohan Broke, Dragging Mom Down With Her-photo

Add another item to Lindsay Lohan's growing list of woes.

Radar Online reports that Lohan, who's currently facing jail time due to a pair of failed, court-mandated drug tests, is in dire financial straits and close to going broke. Perhaps worse, her monetary situation is causing budgetary strain for mother, Dina Lohan.

A well-placed source tells Radar:

Lindsay is in serious trouble financially...Dina is struggling to make ends meet and pay Lindsay's lawyers and this latest development doesn't help things...Everyone thinks the Lohan family is so well-off, but if they knew the truth, it would be shocking.

Perhaps not so shocking, really, given the lack of acting roles that LiLo has performed while digging herself into the predicament that she currently finds herself in. Aside from a bit part in the recently released Robert Rodriguez film Machete, Lohan has appeared in a scant two roles since 2008: The direct-to-DVD bomb Labor Pains in 2009, and a 2008 guest stint on Ugly Betty, which was reportedly cut short due to Lohan's on-set misbehavior.

Luckily, the producers of Inferno, Lohan's upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, are standing behind her—at least for now. The settlement that Lohan reached with E*Trade over her $100 million defamation lawsuit on Monday will no doubt help keep her out of the poor house for a little while too.

Check out photos of a smiley Lohan heading to AA this week, plus shots of her making one of many court visits and going back to her natural red mane.

With her recent failed drug tests, can Lindsay’s career possibly rebound? Share your predictions in the comments section and weigh in via the poll below.

    as much as it angers me that the rich and famous get away with so much that of us would not, and having a problem finding sympathy for the spoiled little bitch,mimi is right. this happens to most former child stars. dina needs a little punishment too. she created and cultivated this monster. yet takes no responsibility whatsoever,nor does she even admit there is a problem in the 1st place.

    Can't believe it! This girl seems to NOT fully understand that she's getting more chances than us commoners. Maybe this time around, her fame has run out and she'll have to get a real job. Perhaps becoming a court reporter is appropriate since she has plenty of experience in the justice system.

    Tired of hearing about lindsay lohan and her problems. She is not a great actress. Her acting is as bad as Madonna. Her birthday is july 2nd. Cancer are prone to addictions. Lohan can be a druggie for ever and find no problem in it, There is war going on and been going on for over 10 years. Life continue to move forward.Too much importance then lindsay problems.

    Caroleann: Good point! I am thinking his relationship with his brother can't be too good right now that Dennis wouldn't help him out....though perhaps Dennis is doing what DINA ought to be doing and practicing tough love?? Sad cases all around.

    "Dragging mom down with her", please, she's one of the girls biggest problems. If she had been a mother instead of a blood sucking leeach maybe the girl would have turned out a little better than a drug addicted sad sack. Dina is one of the worst kinds of parents, and I use the word parent jokingly, she pimps out her own daughters and then acts like none of Lilo problems are her fault. They should put that witch in the cell right next to Lindsays.

    What does going broke mean for celeb? Making less than $1M per year? I don't believe any celebs actually every broke... Some really do go broke. Look at Randy Quaid. He's so broke that he's become a criminal using fraudulent credit cards at hotels and now a squatter at a house he sold 5 years ago. Now he resides in the county jail with no money to get bailed out. It really does happen.

    I think the lack of work and money has forced her to mature somewhat and face reality. But she has not emotionally matured enough to act responsibly. She needs to get out of the limelight and be a regular person - nothing wrong with that. She may even become a happier person. She simply can't handle fame.

    If they took Robert Downey, Jr back they can do the same for her. She has done nothing that's any worse than he ever did. He came back, failed, came back, failed , at least 3 times! He had a longer jail stint than her (which she will soon match) he was found in a stranger's house in their bed (imagine if there had been kids there, or the people were home...he could have been shot or he could have done something to them in his drug-induced stupor). It's all relative. But Lindsay needs to prove SHE RECOGNIZES she has a problem or she WILL fail...

    Maybe it's time for Mom to get a job, and take care of her child. Seems like Lindsey has been supporting that sorry excuse of a Mom long enough. So Sad.

    BURN THE WITCH! BURN THE WITCH!! That's what it sounds like most of the posters here want. Lindsay Lohan is gorgeous and talented and will sail through this just fine. The Puritanical tone of most people here is disgraceful.

    So, she is causing her Mother distress? Who is ultimately responsible for the girl's behavior... hasn't her Mom been with her out and about, drinking and drugging. I think her Mom needs to be tested too. What a joke this whole family is to the world.

    Lindsay just settled her "milkaholic" lawsuit with E-Trade. After Lindsay admitted to a failed drug test on Friday, it's clear what's she's addicted to might be white, but isn't milk. http://www.onelineheadline.com

    Why is this so shocking ? She just seems to be spiraling down the same road as so many child stars before her. Parents should certainly recognize by now , what happens when you catapult little children into the entertainment world. These adorable , bright children become love starved , hounded, substance abusers or develop severe eating disorders and who knows what other psychotic issues. Pray that she realizes what she is doing before she kills herself or worse...someone else.

    Seriously, how do you burn through millions of dollars the way celebs do...it makes me sick...I could live on a 1 million for years...let alone 100 million. Come down earth with rest of us...buy your dam clothes where the rest of us shop. A waste.

    Who cares if she ever makes a single movie again. All of you people haven't a clue except what you want to write about to sell copy. Lohan is a sick person and needs a program of recovery, not a rehab, if she wants to stay alive. Cut the crap.

    I think she's finished. Wonder how she'd look in a blue vest, saying "greetings Walmart shoppers"?

    What does going broke mean for celeb? Making less than $1M per year? Having less than $10M in assets? These people even when they go broke still drive Ferraris, live in 10,000 sq ft houses in Malibu and buy $2,000 handbags. I don't believe any celebs actually every broke, like many of could be if we made as many mistakes

    Shes probably borrowing against her assets so much that she's now going to be broke because no one wants to use her in their films. I predict one more major payout film for her simply because of her unworthy celebrity status from all this sh*t...but after that I see the decline financially as eminent. Her expensive habits dont want to seem to go away either.
