Lindsay Lohan's lawyer blasts stolen shopping app allegations

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer has slammed allegations suggesting the actress and her brother stole the idea for their new shopping app from a former business associate.

The Mean Girls star teamed up with her sibling Michael Lohan, Jr. in August (14) to help raise funds for Vigme, which allows fans to purchase items featured in celebrities' closets.


However, web developer Fima Potik claims the idea belongs to him after striking a deal to work with the Lohans on his start-up, titled Spotted Friend, last year (13).


Potik has fired off a cease and desist notice to the pair, threatening legal action if the Lohans continue to press ahead with their new online business venture, but Lindsay's lawyer, Mark J. Heller, has now hit back, blasting the accusations.


Heller tells the New York Post, "Allegations of any impropriety in Lindsay Lohan's business relationship concerning this Web site are inaccurate and clearly designed to capitalize on her worldwide recognition as a fashion icon."
