Hey, remember Lindsay Lohan’s self-tanning line, Sevin Nyne, the formula she claimed to have co-created with some other chick? Yeah, so, you really didn’t believe that did you? St. Petersburg Times reports:
A lawsuit filed in Tampa federal court says Lohan and a Nevada woman stole the formula for Sevin Nyne from a St. Petersburg chemist named Jennifer Sunday. Lohan launched the tanning mist spray this summer, taking credit for co-creating it over the past three years with Lorit Simon, a Las Vegas businesswoman who air-brushes tans for celebrities. Impossible, says Sunday’s attorney, Marcia Cohen, who told the St. Petersburg Times that her client only recently completed the ingredients used in Sevin Nyne. “We are certainly looking for the profits that are being generated right now from that product,” Cohen said Monday. “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 couldn’t be reached Monday, and Simon didn’t respond to an e-mail seeking comment. Sunday is suing Lohan, Simon, and Simon’s company for breach of contract, theft of trade secrets, civil conspiracy, intentional interference with contractual relations and deceptive and unfair trade practices. Simon signed a confidentiality agreement in January with Sunday’s company, White Wave International Labs. A copy of the agreement was included in the lawsuit. The suit says Simon and Sunday had been negotiating over samples of the tanning mist, but the sides couldn’t agree on a price. “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,” Cohen said.
It would be awesome to be in court when a crack head and some chick who spray tans people in the mall ramble on about how they developed a chemical formula in a lab to make people tan. I give it about five minutes before the judge activates the trap door and releases the scorpions.
