Lindsay Lohan's brief legal respite has come to an end.
A man who says he once toiled guarding the star's body has launched the latest lawsuit against the actress, claiming he's owed more than $55,000 for security and other services rendered. (View the lawsuit.)
David Kim filed the complaint Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging fraud, intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of oral contract and a laundry list of state labor code violations stemming from just five months in her employ.
The actress' camp has yet to comment.
Kim claims he was hired by Lohan and her production company, Crossheart Productions, back in October 2006 at a going rate of either $4,000 a week for around-the-clock services, or $2,800 a week for the night(club) shift.
In court papers, Kim claims he not only provided protection from pesky fans and even peskier paparazzi, he also served as an on-call chauffeur for Lohan and her friends and helped her secure VIP tables at concerts and clubs.
He further asserts that his chivalrous door-to-door driving services set him back $10,000 out of his own pocket for mileage incurred, valet tips issued and related expenses. A portion of the sum, roughly $1,470, stems from a November 2006 smashup when Lohan's driver made an illegal right turn to avoid paparazzi and hit Kim's trailing vehicle.
According to Kim, he resigned from Lohan's bankroll in March 2007 after he hit a major roadblock in his attempts to collect on the overdue paydays. Lohan claims she never employed, let alone even knew, the bodyguard.
