Lohan confirms Ungaro split

LOS ANGELES: Lindsay Lohan has confirmed reports she has parted company with fashion house Emanuel Ungaro.

The Mean Girls star sparked rumours of a rift with the brand after she failed to show up at the Ungaro runway show at Paris Fashion Week in France on Monday (08Mar10), with owner Asim Abdullah explaining, "She's not involved in this collection."

When asked why she missed the display, Lohan - the company's one-time artistic advisor - admitted she is no longer part of the Ungaro design team, telling Women's Wear Daily, "I don't work for them anymore."

When pressed for further information, she added, "There's legal things going on; I can't really discuss it."

Lohan's debut collection with the brand in September (09) was slated by fashion critics.

Mounir Moufarrige, who hired her to work for the design house, stepped down as company president in December (09).
