Last week, Page Six had an interesting little item about how Lindsay Lohan was managing to live the high life (operative word: HIGH) in New York and Los Angeles over the past month, while she continues to not “work” and somehow maintain her grueling drug addiction schedule. According to Page Six, a 39-year-old hotelier named Vikram Chatwal was paying Linnocent’s bills. We “joke” about how Linnocent is a hooker these days, and the Page Six item seemed to be yet another piece of evidence supporting the “theory,” especially given the quote from a Linnocent associate: “They have a friendship and a business relationship, and that’s it.” Well, now Star Magazine has another suspicious item about Vikram and Linnocent’s “bidness relationship”.
Will love save Lindsay Lohan? The troubled star is currently hooking up with super-wealthy NYC-based hotelier and man about town Vikram Chatwal. He has showered her with perks like penthouse digs, fancy dinners and the use of his private jet during her recent weeklong visit to his Chatwal hotel in Manhattan. And he’s trying to help her stay sober!
“Lindsay and Vikram have known each other socially for a while, but they’ve gotten closer since she got out of rehab earlier this year,” says a source, who notes that Vikram completed a stint in rehab for alcohol addiction in 2009 and has been clean since. “He’s looking out for her and being super protective.”
But since Vikram is in the midst of a divorce from his wife of five years, actress Priya Sachdev, “He and Lindsay are taking it slow,” says the source.

Look, I tend to have a dirty, trashy mind, and so I was reading all of that and inserting my own little editor’s notes. Like, “Lindsay and Vikram have known each other socially for a while [meaning that they had slept together a few times when Vikram bought her drugs].” And “They’ve gotten closer since she got out of rehab earlier this year [meaning she was in the market for a sugar daddy].” And “He’s looking out for her and being super protective [because she does butt stuff].” Oh, and “He and Lindsay are taking it slow [because Linnocent makes him wait until the check clears].” Here’s an old photo of Vikram, by the way:
Here’s another question: who is leaking this junk? Because when Page Six outed Vikram as her john last week, Linnocent’s people made the effort to make it seem like there was nothing romantic. But then after yesterday’s cracked-out, delusional interview with Linnocent, it’s almost like the cracked-out dumbass literally has no idea what her media strategy is at this point, so maybe she thinks that she’ll play her paying john as some kind of romantic liaison. I don’t know. Crackheads are tricky.
Oh, one more thing – remember yesterday’s Page Six story in which someone told Linnocent that she looked like Victoria Gotti, and one of Linnocent’s people said, “Yeah, a younger, prettier version”? Considering Linnocent doesn’t even have the part yet, it was a pretty dumb move, especially given that Victoria herself is now walking back the Linnocent casting rumors. Victoria tells Page Six: “Though it was said that I insisted she play my part, that’s not true. I didn’t insist and actually have no say in who gets the part… I think Lindsay is a very talented actress and a sweet girl.” Oh, and a source tells Page Six that Linnocent made “an extremely good impression on everyone involved with the film.” Meaning blow jobs.
