Lohan 'freaking out' after bank accounts are seized

Lindsay Lohan is "freaking out" because her bank accounts have been seized.

The 26-year-old star's accounts have been seized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) so the government can recover some of her massive tax debts, but Lindsay - who is said to owe more than $233,000 - claims the situation is "not her fault".

A source close to Lindsay told the New York Post newspaper: "Lindsay is freaking out. And she's doing what she always does, which is to say it's not her fault and point the finger at someone else in her team. She says she didn't know anything about it … she's broke and it's not her fault."

The IRS claim she owes a total of $233,904 (€179,440) after they filed liens against the 'Liz and Dick' star in 2009 for $140,203 (€107,557) and 2010 for $93,701 (€71,883).

Her managers are now said to be trying to resolve the situation by arranging a deal to repay the money.

Another source said: "The people hired to take care of it are taking care of it and it will be resolved by the end of the year."

Lindsay has already been given a $100,000 (€76,500) helping hand loan from Charlie Sheen, but her father Michael Lohan insists the former 'Two and a Half Men' star should have told her he would only give her the money if she goes to rehab, which she has reportedly refused to enter.

He explained: "It was really generous of him. But he should have said, 'I'll give you the money for your taxes if you go into treatment.'"

Lindsay is expected to earn $2m (€1.5m) by the end of this year after she starred in TV movies 'Liz and Dick' and 'The Canyons', and posed naked for Playboy magazine.
