The troubled actress is the subject of a small claims court lawsuit from Stephen Clark, who claims he sold and installed audio and video equipment, including remote programming, in her Californian home last month but alleges the ‘Machete’ star failed to pay her bill.

Stephen – who is also suing for missed work – is seeking $1,180 from the actress, reports gossip website TMZ.

The case is the latest in a string of problems for Lindsay, who had the equipment installed while she was under house arrest.

The 'Mean Girls' actress was freed on 29th June after serving 35 days of house arrest for the theft of a necklace from an upmarket boutique and for violating the terms of probation set for her 2007 conviction for driving under the influence (DUI).

Last week, Lindsay – who has also started 480 hours of community service at the Los Angeles Downtown Women's centre as part of her sentence – appeared in court for a progress hearing, where she was ordered to find an individual therapist.

However, during the hearing, the 25-year-old actress’ lawyer insisted she hadn’t been able to have the mandatory psychological treatment due to “financial issues.”
