I keep telling you that Dina Lohan LOVES having Lindsay in New York/Long Island these days. In my mind, Lindsay’s crackiness and Dina’s tequila-ness feed each other until they’re gorging on each other’s delusions, building each other higher and drunker and higher until the craziest things sound like perfectly good ideas. I also believe that Dina is pretty much acting as Lindsay’s “pimp” these days, and by that I mean “her manager, complete with a 20% percentage because Lindsay is dumb enough to give her mother 20%.” So what have Dina and Lindsay cooked up this week? Besides meth!
Cash-strapped Lindsay Lohan is seeking a staggering half million dollars for a energy drink promotional appearance in Dubai, but her latest legal woes could derail the planned trip, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
“Lindsay wants $500k for an appearance in Dubai to promote Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Energy Drink, which executives at the company are balking at. Mr. Pink is prepared to offer the actress $200k, and would pay for all of LiLo’s travel expenses,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“However, the trip might not happen at all because of Lindsay’s criminal past and current pending criminal charges. Dubai has very strict laws about convicted criminals entering the country, and Lindsay is still on probation for a necklace theft case. Lindsay is very upset about her financial woes and doesn’t trust her new lawyer, Mark Heller, to handle the Dubai travel problem,” the insider added.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the troubled starlet, 26, was forced to move from Los Angeles, back to New York, because she could no longer afford to pay the $8k monthly rent on her house.
“Lindsay is being forced to live at home with Dina because she can’t afford any other options at the moment,” an insider previously revealed. “Lindsay is flat-out broke and can’t even afford to rent a two-bedroom apartment in North Hollywood.”
Living at home with Mama Lohan was cramping Lindsay’s hard partying lifestyle, and she has since been staying at a friend’s apartment in New York City. Adding to Lindsay’s dire financial straits – Chase Bank’s intent to foreclose on the $1.3 million Long Island mansion that Dina owns.
Dina’s financial problems have been well-chronicled throughout the years, as the show biz parent, who’s reportedly more than $1 million in the red, was previously on the brink of foreclosure both last year and in 2005. The mother and daughter clashed last fall over a $40,000 loan LiLo gave Dina to dodge the bank repossessing the home.
The energy drink appearance, “simply must happen for Lindsay. She is absolutely desperate for the cash. The shocking this is that she will burn through that money just as quickly as she gets paid,” the insider said.
Read between the lines. Not only does Lindsay truly and sincerely want $500,000 for an appearance on behalf of “Mr. Pink” – she also wants to fly first class and to have first class accommodations. And I wonder what Lindsay will do when she gets to Dubai? Find the first sheik, prince or oil baron and offer her patented $100K beej? Yes, it’s a perfect money-making scheme if you’re a crackhead with no marketable skills and a mother who will literally sell you to pay off her house.
Also: Page Six reported yesterday that Lindsay is still hanging out with that 22-year-old DJ Julian Cavin. I kind of feel bad for the poor little guy. He’s only 22! He’s going to have to live the rest of his life knowing that he willingly slept with the Cracken. Ha… and now Julian has told TMZ that they’re “just friends”. Poor kid.
