(LOS ANGELES) -- Matt Harrell, a personal assistant who worked for Lindsay Lohan during the taping of her self-titled reality show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, has reportedly quit because Lohan can't afford to pay him.
A source tells Radar Online, "Lindsay would love to have Matt back as her assistant, but she just can't afford him. He did a really good job for her."
The source says Harrell continued to work for the Mean Girls star even after she informed him she couldn't keep him on.
"Matt still agreed to accompany Lindsay to do press for the show," the source says. "He even went with her for her appearance on Ellen. He is hoping to get another job with another celebrity by helping Lindsay out."
Meanwhile, Team Lohan is denying a New York Post report that the actress' credit cards were declined for a $300 purchase at a New York City boutique.
"She looked really embarrassed and tried to negotiate before her friend finally stepped in and paid," a spy said.
