Lindsay Lohan has been targetted in a new lawsuit accusing the actress of stealing the formula for her new tanning spray.
The 23-year-old Mean Girls star launched her tanning potion Sevin Nyne in April (09) - touting it as the secret to her glowing complexion.
The actress claims she has spent three years developing the product with Lorit Simon, a Las Vegas entrepreneur who tans Hollywood A-listers.
St. Petersburg, Florida-based chemist Jennifer Sunday claims she showed Simon her tanning mist samples in January (09) and she alleges the pair stole the formula.
According to federal court documents filed in Tampa, Florida, Sunday is suing the pair pair for breach of contract, theft of trade secrets, civil conspiracy, intentional interference with contractual relations and deceptive and unfair trade practices.
Cohen's attorney tells the St. Petersburg Times, "The next thing we know, Lorit Simon and Lindsay Lohan are partnering and Ms. Lohan is taking credit for developing this formula, which she indeed had no role in...
"We are certainly looking for the profits that are being generated right now from that product. If Ms. Lohan and Ms. Simon and their companies and their shareholders are profiting from the theft of my client's formula and are profiting from that product, my client is entitled to those proceeds."
A publicist for Lohan could not be reached as WENN went to press.
