Lindsay Lohan caught a mosquito-borne virus on vacation in French Polynesia


Here are an assortment of Lindsay Lohan photos. The candid airport pics are of Lindsay at LAX on December 16th, just days after she declared that she would never, ever live in LA again. For what it’s worth, she didn’t stay in LA very long – she ended up flying to French Polynesia for the Christmas holiday. I don’t know if Ali or Dina made the trip or if Lindsay went with friends (“friends”). So, I’m also including an assortment of Instagram photos from her holiday.

In one of the Instagram photos, Lindsay posted this message: “In good faith with good people. I refuse to let a virus effect my peaceful vacation….” Yes, she has a virus. What kind, you might ask? It turns out she caught Chikungunya, which is largely spread through mosquito bites. Symptoms include fever and joint pain. There is no cure. That sucks. I’m sorry, I don’t really have a joke about this. I was trying to figure out something that wouldn’t be too mean, like “The Herp Invades French Polynesia” but blah. It sucks being sick during vacation! I’ve had this weird stomach bug since Christmas and I just can’t shake it. Mad cramps, y’all.

In other Cracken news, In Touch Weekly says that Lindsay wants to do Broadway next after her successful (??) run of Speed-the-Plow on the London stage. Sources say Lindsay is “begging” Oprah to produce a Broadway show and let her have a part and “If that doesn’t work out, she’s hoping Oprah can get her an audition for something like ‘Cabaret.’ Lindsay needs another helping hand.” Lindsay as a cracked-out Sally Bowles in Cabaret? NOOOooo.

      Nope, don’t believe it. Miscarriage lie keeps echoing in the wind. And she’s up and around already in LA? Happily walking through that huge airport smiling in her ugly high heels? Nope. And yes, of course she wants an audition for Cabaret – she saw the super great NY Times review that Emma Stone just got (by the way Emma just opened on Broadway with that and already Lindsay wants to replace her? Jealous much, Lohan? – Emma Stone is a real actress and a tough act to follow – Lohan would look like a high school amateur following Stone). And in terms of box office – I think we all know from Speed the Plow – that Lohan is no draw. The houses were half full. Lohan is still the delusional, lying, manipulative, jealous, entitled b!tch she always was. And I don’t believe her.

      I feel bad for the mosquito that bit her…and feel even worse for the unsuspecting sucker that gets bit by the same mosquito after the extra viruses it picked up from the cracken…

  3. The Original G says:

    Good Girl. Never let a virus affect your vacation. Wait till you get back to work.

    This is common in the Caribbean also this year. It’s like the flu, so no worries, fans.

    • MinnFinn says:

      I was also thinking it’s not a big deal but CDC says a significant number of people especially those over 45 suffer with ongoing muscle aches and arthritis-like symptoms 2 – 3 years after the initial infection.

      I hope LIndsey’s immune system is not weak due to her substance abuse history.

    • Melca_Blue says:

      It’s really not like the flu. I contracted it when I was in Curacao 3 weeks ago and it’s horrible. Lots of joint pain, fever that will not go away. I still have symptoms, some days I can;t even walk straight because of pain in my ankles. And the only pain medicine you can take is paracetamol, which doesn’t help with the pain and fever, you are not allowed to take anything else. Also, rash, after the fever goes away, you get a rash. You can compare it to Dengue, but this one is not deadly, but it will stay in your system for years.

      It affects everyone of all ages, but babies and older people experience it even worse.

    • JaneFr says:

      like the flue ? It’s an awful sickness, with debilitating pain, that can last years after.
      Would you still make joke about it if it was something more well known ?

  4. Smallwonder says:

    Her face is as orange as her Birkin in the first pic. Also, what’s with the last pic? Who wears a long sleeve bathing suit in FP? Wonder if her crack is in the crinkled Harrods bag since she’s so “classy” now?…

  5. NewWester says:

    First I hope she recovers, from what I have read chikungunya can be very painful. That aside, how on earth is Lindsay able to afford to go on vacations like this? Where does she get the money from?

  6. Willa says:

    My sister lives in St. Thomas and says all her friends and co workers have gotten it. She hasn’t yet, but she says it really knocks you back for two weeks and you can have horrible joint pain for years.

    • QQ says:

      My dad, his wife and my sisters all caught it in Venezuela, what has exacerbated everything there besides being the rainy season is that the main aid to Chikungunya is Ibuprofen… which currently being what it is in Venezuela is Unavailable… so.. TONS of people have died… My stepmother is telling me two months later she still has terrible pain in her hands

      • Willa says:

        Yes, ibuprofen, sis tells me, REALLY helps. How awful it’s not available!

      • Willa says:

        Yes, ibuprofen, sis tells me, REALLY helps. Sorry to hear it’s not readily available!

      • Melca_Blue says:

        Ibuprofen? We are advised by docters to not take it, only paracetamol. I haven’t heard of people dying of it yet, this is the first I hear about that. In Curacao, where I contracted it, about 20,000 people have it, on a population of 120,000. They expect by January/February half of the population will have chikunguya. Only now Curacao has started to really tackle the problem. What I got from my docter is to avoid ibuprofen, because it can lead to internal bleeding, so that’s why they only prescribe Paracetamol.

        Hope your family recovers soon, I’m still suffering the effects from it, so much pain.

  7. Pumpkin Pie says:

    Chikungunya is a horrible disease, I know people who had it. If she was able to enjoy her hollies, then good for her.

  8. Belle Epoch says:

    She is not above lying about health issues that are conveniently not verifiable (The Miscarriage).

    French Polynesia? Wow! She does get around. I seem to be doing something wrong.

    • QQ says:

      yeah the part where you aren’t selling yourself possibly for drugs or BitCoins… there you go trying to get on in life the Honest way… sucker

  9. Tippy says:

    What purpose does the mosquito serve?

    If mosquitos were to go extinct would they be missed?

    • MinnFinn says:

      Certain fish would miss their larvae. Dragonflies and bats would miss the adults. Probably not an ecosystem disaster if they went extinct though. I’d love that.

      • doofus says:

        sometimes I think the bats in NJ survive SOLELY on mosquitos.

        it IS our state bird, after all… 😉

    • Lex says:

      Macabre yes, but about 600 000 people a year die from malaria so mosquitoes do their bit to keep our population down

    • Anony says:

      There is no species that rely on Mosquitos as a sole food source. Yes some creatures eat them but they are not a sole food source for any species. However, it’d be nearly impossible to eradicate them I’m afraid.

      Also to the poster who said they help control the human population…I’ve known several immature individuals who have said similar things about natural disasters. Because I mean hey, as long as it’s not people near you dying that’s fine right!? Not like those people have loved ones. Population control should be achieved through birth control, not unnecessary death. But hey, feel free to deny any future medical care to you know, help control the population.

  10. scout says:

    She is just attracts all kinds of “viruses” upon her, poor girl!! Damn you Mosquitoes, leave the girl alone!

  11. yuck says:

    When did Oprah become Lindsay’s agent? That’s some serious delusion there.

    • Mia4S says:

      Hmmm, wasn’t she supposed to be filming like, twelve movies this year? It’s almost like she and the people around her are not entirely honest. Shocking! 😉

  12. DesertReal says:

    That broad off to the side with in the massive sunglasses looks like cara delevingne…the mouth, nose, and eyebrows do anyway.

  13. OSTONE says:

    That poor mosquito.

  14. khymera says:

    Good for her, right now Chikungunya is mashing up the Barbados all I hear bout is the paineven when its gone u still have trouble walking my friends knees are still swollen . Glad I haven’t caught it.

  15. serena says:

    That’s why we haven’t heard of her cracking shaningans.

  16. funcakes says:

    Kaiser, you should drink peppermint tea. It settles the the stomach. Altoids too because they are very strong. Celestial tea. Or any brand will do.

  17. Bess says:

    In the second picture from the top, the guy on the left of the photo is one of the Cracken’s long time partners in crime, Patrick- aka Pootie. If he’s along on this trip, there must be some good drugs to be had.

  18. Izzy says:

    I, for one, am simply amazed that there was a mosquito brave enough to take her blood…

  19. kri says:

    I fear for that bloodsucker. I will leave you to decide to which being I am referring…

  20. Bread and Circuses says:

    I’m sorry she’s sick, but she is such a little grifter. “Oprah, be my sugar daddy! Oprah, do me favours!” Argh.

    • hannahf says:

      The second half of your comment is why believing her claim is absurd. Lindsay has a long track record of lying about illnesses to get out of commitments or obligations such as showing up in court. Further, post-holiday Lindsay was seen carrying the packed to the gills orange handbag. Per Google and as noted by the posters above, had she been ill, she would not have been able to easily carry something that heavy.

  22. Syko says:

    It amuses me that in the bottom picture, although wearing sunglasses, she has a pair of sunglasses stuck into the neckline of the suit. And why are her legs so bruised and beaten-up?

    • snowflake says:

      lol, that is funny! didn’t notice it till you said it. i don’t think anyone else did either

  23. Jacqueline says:

    Imagine what that poor mosquito caught from her!

  24. Sansblague says:

    Is it just me or does she look like she’s trying to conceal a bruise on her cheekbone in the long-sleeved swimsuit photo, which is otherwise fab ?
