London: Lindsay Lohan’s mother Dina has revealed they are considering a lawsuit against the jewellery store, where the star allegedly stole a 2,500-dollar necklace.

London: Lindsay Lohan’s mother Dina has revealed they are considering a lawsuit against the jewellery store, where the star allegedly stole a 2,500-dollar necklace.

They are said to be considering suing the shop in Venice, Los Angeles, after the owners reportedly sold the surveillance footage of the incident for a reputed figure of more than 35,000 dollars.

It comes after the Kamofie and Co. said its business had been damaged by the media attention surrounding the alleged necklace theft by the 24-year-old actress.

“Once again, celebrities are faced with the possibilities of their normal daily activity being filmed and sold without their knowledge and their consent, and our family is looking into formal legal action,” the Daily Mail quoted her mom as telling RadarOnline.

Her lawyer Stephanie Ovadia told the website that the Lohan family had contacted her and she is now investigating the situation.

“We are looking into the unauthorised use of an image, invasion of privacy, unjust enrichment, and other possible legal avenues,” she said.

The ‘Mean Girls’ actress is next due to appear in court over the case on Thursday.

Prosecutors claim she walked out of the store on January 22 and walked out wearing the necklace without paying.

But the case could now be harmed by the sale of the CCTV evidence, which was aired on U.S. channel Entertainment Tonight on Monday evening.

The video was sold by a representative of Kamofie to a commercial images unit of The Associated Press, which then licensed it exclusively to Entertainment Tonight.
