Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been offered a $1 million book deal.
The 27-year-old actress is believed to be on the verge of signing a contract with publishing house HarperCollins to create a story based on her troubled life.
The memoir will follow her journey from a child star to her court-ordered stint in rehab last year, with the diary she penned during her 90-day stay being used as the basis for the book.
A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''It's more or less an autobiography, but she had a minimal number of pages.''
The flame-haired star's agent, Scott Waxman, has reportedly had a number of meetings with different publishers, but his efforts to secure a $5 million deal were unsuccessful following concerns that Lindsay would not produce a completed story.
The source added: ''There was initial interest, but everybody backed off. There was concern she wouldn't deliver.''
Meanwhile, Lindsay's new TV show will hit screens on Sunday night (09.03.14) on her mentor Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, which will highlight her struggle to stay sober and resurrect her career.
Lindsay said previously: ''I did it because it's not a reality show, it's pretty raw. Obviously it's TV, so things will be edited in certain ways to get ratings, which I can't control, but I do know that my intentions going into it were really pure and really honest. I appreciate all that's happened and all that [Oprah has] done for me.''
