In 2005, she filed a suit against the 'Gladrags' magazine in the Bombay High Court for allegedly using her photos for the promotion of their upcoming modelling contest, which according to her was a clear violation of her copyright. Later, she won the case, and the court told the Gladrags company to stop using her photos for their promotions.   She became a victim of the wardrobe malfunction at the 2010 IIFA awards in Colombo, Sri Lanka.   On 9 April 2018, she tweeted a photo in which she displayed how she utilized her husband's Australian Open,?Wimbledon, US Open, and French Open towels to prevent water entering their home during the heavy rains. Her tweet didn't please her husband as he angrily replied back to her with a tweet.   In December 2017, both Lara and Mahesh Bhupathi, being the brand ambassadors of Gitanjali Gems Ltd, filed an insolvency petition as operational creditors against Gitanjali. According to the couple, they were having a 2-year contract with Gitanjali for public appearances, but there were few cancellations for which Gitanjali had to pay them, but they didn't pay their dues.
