Lindsay Lohan just can't seem to catch a break after the Internal Revenue Service seized the young movie star's bank accounts as it tries to reclaim thousands of dollars in unpaid back taxes.
Reports indicate that the IRS commandeered her financial accounts after numerous failed attempts to collect the debt and a much publicized loan from friend and actor Charlie Sheen.
Lohan has been under the scrutiny of the IRS due to the reported $233,904 she owned to the government for taxes she failed to pay for 2009 and 2010. The new revelation comes as a shock given that she recently received $100,000 from Sheen.
Both Sheen and Lohan have had a careers marred with bad behavior and irrational actions, but reportedly developed a close friendship while they were working of the set of "Scary Movie 5" last fall. They were seen spending a lot of time together.
Sources close to the situation told the celebrity news site that during filming, Lindsay and Charlie could were always together and one time she was overheard discussing her tax difficulties with him.
It was rumored that Sheen had offered to write her a check at that time, but Lohan rebuffed his offers. It seems as her financial wows became too much, Lohan's business manager received a check from Sheen last week, a source close to Lindsay allegedly revealed. The money cuts her tax bill by nearly half.
Lohan recently talked openly with Us Weekly about her illegal behavior in the past and constant run-ins with the police, blaming her actions on "loneliness" and her "toxic romance" with ex-lover Sam Ronson.
"Kids go through ups and downs, try drugs, cigarettes and drinking. It's human nature. It took a while but it's like 'What was I thinking? Why did I allow so many sycophants and bad influences to be around me,'" stated Lohan.
To make matters worse, Lohan is also facing an upcoming court date related to charges of third degree misdemeanor assault after Lohan and another female patron were involved in an altercation in a Manhattan nightclub.
