LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Just months ago, Lindsay Lohan earned a prestigious position as an artistic advisor to fashion house Emanuel Ungaro — an honor soon dimmed by poor reviews of her first collection for the line with designer Estrella Archs at Paris Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Week earlier in October.
But according to FOX News, the prestige – and a mountain of free clothes – may be Lindsay’s only payment for the gig.
“Ungaro is not paying her at all to be a consultant for them,” a source reportedly close to Lindsay told FOX’s FOX 411 blog. “Her team is working to get Lindsay some form of payment from the fashion house, but right now they will only give her free clothes.”
A source also claimed to the site that Lindsay’s much-delayed musical career is on the rocks.
“Casablanca [Records] has suspended all further recording sessions of her album and put their working relationship with her on hold,” the source told FOX. “Lindsay was committed to making music and has been working on it for 16 months. She is going to go what she can to keep her music career going.”
However, in a Times of London interview with Emanuel Ungaro CEO Mounir Moufarrige on Sunday, the executive disputed the fashion accusations, telling the newspaper that Lindsay is being paid “quite enough” for her new position.
“It’s expensive,” he said.
