In legal documents obtained by E! News, D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries is suing Lohan for $5 million for breach-of-contract.
The clothing company claims that despite initial success in department stores, the 27-year-old's fashionable leggings failed to appeal to buyers who "did not want to be associated with Lohan's drug-addled image."
