LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A former bodyguard for Lindsay Lohan has sued the actress, saying she owes him more than $55,000 in pay and expenses for protecting her from fans and paparazzi.

In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, David Kim said he worked for the "Freaky Friday" star from October 2006 to March 2007. Kim says he obtained VIP tables for Lohan at clubs and concerts, tipped valet parkers, provided drivers and kept fans and photographers away from her.

The lawsuit, filed late on Monday, names both Lohan and her production company Crossheart Productions Inc and alleges fraud, emotional distress and breach of oral contract.

A representative for Lohan could not immediately be reached for comment.

Kim said in the lawsuit he was forced to resign in March 2007 because Lohan would not pay him, claiming that she never knew him or employed him.

Lohan, 21, spent much of 2007 making headlines for hard partying in Los Angeles and elsewhere. She did two stints in rehab and served two hours in jail after pleading guilty to drunken driving and cocaine possession charges.
