Lindsay Lohan settles $365,000 book deal lawsuit

Lindsay Lohan has settled a lawsuit brought by publisher HarperCollins alleging she received a $365,000 advance on a book deal but never delivered a manuscript, new court filings show.

The terms were not disclosed in settlement papers filed Friday in Manhattan Superior Court, which said the lawsuit was “dismissed.”

In the September 2020 lawsuit, HarperCollins said the “Mean Girls” star and her company Crossheart Productions entered into a deal on March 27, 2014 for a book that is due a year later.

Lohan, 36, was slated to write a book about her difficult life based on her journal from her 2013 stint in rehab. The tome is said to be worth $1 million.

While publisher Crossheart gave the advance – which was then paid to the “Freaky Friday” actress – even after a two-year extension to March 15, 2017, the book never materialized, the lawsuit alleges.

HarperCollins terminated the contract in 2018 and demanded repayment of the advance.

Lohan’s attorney said Monday the lawsuit was settled “years ago,” while the settlement papers were signed and dated Friday.

“The matter was resolved years ago. The recent filing of the dismissal paperwork by the plaintiff’s attorney was ministerial,” attorney Andrew Brettler told The Post.

HarperCollins’ attorney did not respond to a request for comment Monday.
