Very important breaking closet-related news! Lindsay Lohan and her brother Michael Lohan, Jr. are being sued for $60 million, by a former business partner who claims they stole a virtual closet app.


Could there ever be more shocking words printed than "Lindsay Lohan is developing an app?" According to Page Six, Fima Potik, owner of online retailer Spotted Friend, claims the Lohan siblings stole trade secrets and poached famous advisers to his company after he agreed to work with them:

After meeting Potik in 2013 the Lohan siblings, along with Michael's roommate Christopher Roth, became equity members of Spotted Friend.

The Lohans and Roth signed a confidentiality agreement with Potik and he handed over a beta version of Spotted's mobile app, the software, potential revenue streams and a list of advisors.

The "Mean Girls" actress agreed to be Spotted's spokeswoman, and signed a contract giving Potik access to her physical closet, according to the suit. The app allows users to view celebrities' and friends' virtual closets—then purchase wardrobe items.

Things were going fine until Potik discovered Michael Lohan, Jr. had gone off without him and launched the app Vigme, which his lawsuit states is "is nearly identical in design and layout to Spotted Friend's mobile application."

But seriously though, can you imagine how awesome a Lindsay Lohan virtual closet app would be? It would probably have a good way to organize the pants suits she stole from Jamie Lee Curtis on the set of Freaky Friday and all those copies of Just My Luck one will take.

Whoa, Charlie Sheen says he'd be open to coming back to Two and Half Men and even has ideas about how to do it.

I'm not really sure if Sheen actually understands that his character died on the show, but let's go ahead and get on this train for a hot minute. In an interview with Extra, he talked about rumors of his return:

"I would definitely do it, yeah, yeah. If they'll still have me, I will be there. Yeah, I owe it some measure of closure. I owe it to the fans… I just think it makes sense."

When asked how he envisions the finale, "I have a brilliant idea, but don't want to give it away. It's the type of moment I think people would talk about for a long time and it wouldn't get in anybody's way. Think it would be a nice tip of the hat… they know I want to do it and I know they're open to it, so, guess we're just a meeting away from making it happen."


Dream big, Charlie. Never let them get you down.
