Lindsay Lohan sprayed with litigation

51IqrkkUecL._SL500_AA280_Lindsay Lohan has a knack for getting into trouble. Her bouts with authorities have even inspired advertisements debating whether states should adopt mandatory breathalyzer laws.

Nevertheless, Lohan manages to find herself in very interesting legal predicaments. The latest lawsuit to target the actress involves a Florida skin care company who claims she stole the formula for a sunless tanning spray. White Wave International alleges that Lohan and her business partner, Lorit Simon, engaged in negotiations over the tan spray but couldn't agree upon a price.

"The next thing we know, Lorit Simon and Lindsay Lohan are partnering and Ms. Lohan is taking credit for developing this formula, which she indeed had no role in," Marcia Cohen, attorney for the plaintiff, told the St. Petersburg Times.

Here's the complaint filed in Florida district court.

Although Lohan's latest legal troubles may sound unprecedented, we will note that the cosmetic business has long bedeviled Hollywood actresses. A few examples include Teri Hatcher's legal battles over a skin care product, Heidi Klum's troubles with a company selling her fragrance, Nicole Kidman's war to protect her perfume endorsement deal, Jennifer Lopez' smelly lawsuit, and allegations that Jessica Simpson pirated a cosmetics brand
