Lindsay Lohan's mother Dina has taken aim at the owners of a California jewellery store for selling surveillance footage which shows the actress trying on a necklace she is alleged to have stolen from the shop.
The Mean Girls star is already fuming with bosses at Kamofie & Company for releasing the Cctv tapes to a media outlet in a deal worth a reported $40,000 (£26,670).
Lohan argues the jewellers are attempting to cash in on her name, and has threatened legal action claiming she never granted the store owners permission to use her image for profit.
Clips of the video have also emerged online at Necklacevideo.com, with fans being asked to pay $2.99 (£1.86) to view more of the recording.
Lohan's mother, Dina, is fuming about the release of the footage and she has branded the 'pay-as-you-watch' scheme "ridiculous", telling the New York Daily News, "It's clear what this is about. It's gotten to such a ridiculous point. They need to leave Lindsay alone."
The actress is set to stand trial over allegations she stole the necklace in January (11) after rejecting a plea deal for the second time.
A preliminary hearing into the case will take place on 22 April (11), when a judge will decide if prosecutors have enough evidence for a trial and whether Lohan violated her probation stemming from a previous Dui charge.
