Though she’s currently (finally) in rehab, Lindsay Lohan may soon be headed to court again. The apparel manufacturer that produced her line of leggings, 6126, is suing the star for, essentially, being Lindsay Lohan.

Clothing manufacturer DNAM is filed a $5 million lawsuit against Lohan in a California court on Friday, alleging that the actress’s permanent state of scandal hurt the brand’s sales, according to E! Online.

DNAM claims that, while leggings sales were initially strong, by spring of 2011 buyers were pulling back ”because they did not want to be associated with Lohan’s drug-addled image.” They added that Lohan was unable to fulfill her PR responsibilities to repair the damage because she was in rehab at the time.

It wouldn’t be her lat stint in rehab. Lindsay Lohan entered a Southern California rehabilitation facility in early May as part of a court-ordered plea deal over a car crash last year, her lawyer said, but her last-minute switch of rehab centers left prosecutors fuming.

Lohan, 26, initially agreed to complete a 90-day stay in a locked rehab facility in the New York area, but instead caught prosecutors off guard by checking into a facility in Newport Beach, about 40 miles south of Los Angeles.
