New York (ANI): A lawyer once threatened Hollywood singer-actress Lindsay Lohan's DJ girlfriend Samantha Ronson to either pay him a 100,000-dollar legal fee for two months' work or be ready for bad publicity. The revelation comes after Ronson has filed a suit against lawyer Martin Garbus for malpractice, claiming he botched her defamation case against blogger Perez Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira.
Ronson's lawyers have attached a threatening e-mail Garbus had sent her, reports the New York Daily News. In the email, Garbus attached a draft of a breach of contract suit, promising he would file it if she didn't pay him with the warning "Please don't force me to do it. The blogs will pick it up".
