Lindsay Lohan wants to apply for British citizenship & live in London permanently

wenn22579513

Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan in London at the Louis Vuitton Summer Launch Party a few weeks ago. I just never got around to posting these photos, mostly because I’ve been trying to ignore the Cracken ever since she somehow managed to crack-hustle her way through completing her community service hours by the end of May. Honestly, it wasn’t that difficult to ignore her. For the first time in many years (like, six years, I think), Lindsay is not on probation nor does she have some huge legal case or charge hanging over her head. She is free to be as cracked-out as she wants without repercussions from the law.

So how has Lindsay been spending her free-and-clear time? She’s been partying, of course. She went on vacation. But she’s now using London as her homebase, perhaps because that’s where her current sugar daddy resides. Who know? But here’s an interesting new interview from Lohan – apparently, she’s interested in becoming a British citizen.

Lindsay Lohan has expressed interest in becoming a British citizen. Speaking to HELLO! Magazine, she said: ‘I can definitely see myself settling in London permanently.’

When asked if she would apply for British citizenship, she replied: ‘If you’ll have me, I will.’

The troubled star credits moving to the UK with helping her completely change her life. She explained: ‘I’m in a really good place. I’m blessed to have been able to do a play in London and start a different way of life. New York is very fast paced and it’s not like that over here for me. You grow up and change, and I’m really happy about that, as overall I feel a lot better. Moving here was a new start for me and my outlook on life is different now.’

The 28-year-old star adores exploring new areas of the city and venturing further afield when she isn’t working.

She continued: ‘For me, I feel more comfortable working from London. And it is beautiful. The architecture is incredible and the parks are so nice. I also love exploring different cities and using London as a base means I can go to more places. That’s really important to me.’

[From The Daily Mail]

I’m shocked that Lindsay didn’t use this as an opportunity to diss America and talk up the British people for their amazing humor and conversational skills. Oh, wait – that was Rachel Weisz. Lindsay just wants to stay in London because that’s where her current boyfriends are and because she hasn’t been arrested for anything in London. Yet. And if she wants to stay… God bless. I’m just happy that the streets of LA and NYC will be that much safer without the Cracken. I feel sorry for London a little bit though. In an ideal world, Lindsay would get into some kind of street fight with Katie Price and then all would be well.

    Well, the USA took Russell Brand off the UK’s hands (temporarily, but still), so I feel it’s only fair that the UK take the Cracken off our hands. All yours, UK! Enjoy in good health!

  2. Sixer says:

    I’ve suddenly done a complete volte face in my view of Britain’s draconian immigration policies.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      I do hope you didn’t experience whiplash. Sending a strong, handsome massage therapist with an ice pack for your neck.

      I did wonder if she would be eligible for more than a visitor’s visa with her many convictions.

      • The Other Katherine says:

        Lilacflowers, as someone who has successfully completed the naturalisation process, I would be ASTONISHED if LiLo could manage to get UK citizenship. As she is not descended from or married to a UK citizen, she would first have to spend 5 years residing in the UK and spend fewer than 900 days outside the UK during that time (it’s usually 450 days, but she’d get some leeway due to her career). More importantly she would have to meet the “good character” requirement. Persons who “have not respected and/or are not prepared to abide by the law” are not considered to meet the requirement; past failure to pay taxes can also cause you to be disqualified, as can “notoriety” where “the scale and persistence of their behaviour” reflect very poorly on the person in the public sphere.

        To sum up: Dream on, Lindsay!

      • Sixer says:

        TOK – yep, draconian, aren’t we?

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Dang it! Just take her already! For the love of God, we’re stuck with the Biebs, so somebody have mercy on us and take this flake off our hands!

      • The Other Katherine says:

        Sixer — Still cheaper and more straightforward than the process for becoming a U.S. permanent resident, believe it or not!

      • Sixer says:

        TOK – yes! It always makes me laugh that both countries have such positive views of themselves but retreat into truly Orwellian craziness and deep suspicion that any pesky Johnny Foreigner might actually agree and want to make a home in one of them!

    • Kiddo says:

      Haha, I was about to send you a bow and some gift wrap!

    • Sixer says:

      I suppose we could just deport her to Calais with all the rest of the unwanted? That would be about par for our course.

      I’m only taking her if you take Katie Price and/or Jeremy Clarkson and his man love stencilled cars. Fair’s fair.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I suggest we ship the whole lot up to the International Space Station to form a colony.

      • Tristan says:

        How dare you! Katie Price is the UK’s reigning national treasure!

      • Sixer says:

        Lilac – I’d be more inclined to suggest the first (one-way) manned Mars mission. We’re not ready, but they’re risk-takers, so they won’t mind.

        Tristan – but just imagine how MARS would receive her!

      • doofus says:

        Tristan, I thought that was Jodie Marsh?

      • Kiddo says:

        We’ve sent her so you could install all the dry Brit humor that fails ‘muricans.
        Suck it up and commence with the deadpan lessons. No tradesies, it’s a GIFT.

      • Tristan says:

        Then we’d be missing out on all the delicious things that La Price says & does! The recent spat between her & Jodie Marsh being the perfect example. You know, the one where she called JM a doggie bag, because she’d had all of KP’s leftovers. Doesn’t get much better than that!

      • Sixer says:

        Oh! Kiddo! I get it! It’s an example of ‘Murican humour! Weisz for president! Snigger!

        Tristan – she can still do that stuff. Via Twitter. From Mars.

      • Jadzia says:

        Please not to send her to Calais!

        Love,

        France

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Mars it is!

    • beeebdsf1eh says:

      Draconian? Are you kidding? Every piece of garbage from around the world is there.

  3. NewWester says:

    Did Lindsay try and kiss a beehive? What on earth is going on with her lips?

    • Ankhel says:

      Her face is a swollen filler mess. Or maybe Trinny and Susannah snapped and knocked her out in order to dress her. That dress looks too pretty for Lindsay’s taste.

    • Arock says:

      Remember how your mom told you if you make a face it will stay that way? I think lilo has made the face so many times, ahem, professionally her lips just stayed that way. Everyone’s good at something….

  4. minx says:

    Hilarious.

    “The 28-year-old star adores exploring new areas of the city and venturing further afield when she isn’t working”

    Yeah, we know what kind of work she’s doing.

    • boredblond says:

      Do you mean the ‘work’ that pays the rent and provides the pricey handbags or the tedious work of showing up at probation hearings? I’ve always believed we have a serious excess of witless celebrities and should try to export them to places where they’re in short supply..it does seem like England has been over-burdened–Madonna, Lohan, Clooney–but they can find comfort knowing Kimye will only come if queen E is willing to sell them her title and Buckingham palace.

  5. embertine says:

    Dear Lindsay:

    NO.

    Love: Britain

  6. Tate says:

    I only read the title of the article but…. Sounds good to me!!

  7. Patricia says:

    So much face bloat.
    I was just wondering what was up with her lately!

    She’s such a mess.
    But I love that dress!

  8. blue marie says:

    Oh London, I’m sorry but you can keep her

  9. Lindy79 says:

    It never fails to wow me how in the name of all that is pure and true is this girl 7 years younger than me and looks about 15 years older.

    • NewWester says:

      Lindsay’s daily diet probably consists of cigarettes, room temperature vodka and crack du jour Plus maybe inhaling lemon scented air freshener in order to get some vitamin C. That kind of diet does tend to make a person look older.

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        The lemon scented air freshener needs to be artisanal and macrobiotic, I think thats where Lilo is going wrong.

        Poor Britain :-( also poor Ireland, Lohan is too close for my comfort.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Indeed. She will only be a 60 minute plane journey away and that’s FAR too near for my liking.

      • Barbara says:

        don’t forget the daily adderall

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      What amazes me is Charlize Theron is ten years older than Lohan but looks younger.

  10. Snazzy says:

    Why would any self respecting brand want to be associated with the Craken?
    As for the move to the UK, well, we all know she’ll get herself into trouble eventually, won’t she?
    So until she’s arrested, safe safe Londonites !!

  11. Easi says:

    When she does that kiss pose, can someone please tell her we are all dry heaving.

  12. Helen says:

    Katie Price V. Cracken would be great, like one of those Japanese monster movies with the ultimate monster fighting.

    Lindsay is genuinely out of touch with reality, though, and Katie is hard as flipping nails, so I don’t think the battle would be very epic.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      It would be quick, Katie would snap her in two like it’s nothing. That woman might look like she’s not exactly a mensa member but she is a business woman and a successful one.

      Also, NO. Do NOT give her citizenship. It would allow her to travel through the EU unrestricted and we have enough problems!!!

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        Cracken also does not realize that knowingly and voluntarily naturalizing to UK citizenship may result in the permanent abandonment of her US citizenship. Without a US passport, she would have to obtain a visa to travel to US for any reason. Thanks to her numerous criminal problems, she would need a waiver just to get a tourist visa.

        This may be the most efficient way of ridding the US from this menace.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        For real? No dual citizenship?

      • The Other Katherine says:

        Bearcatlawyer, acquiring UK citizenship through naturalisation has zero impact on U.S. citizenship status. Lots and lots of Americans, including me, acquire dual UK citizenship. So much so, in fact, that there is a waiting list of UK residents trying to complete the process of relinquishing their American citizenship (not including me!) so that they can stop filing U.S. tax returns and FBARs. The UK in no way frowns upon holding citizenship of more than one nation.

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        The UK may recognize dual citizenship acquired through naturalization, but US law generally disfavours dual citizenship and specifically provides that people who undertake an expatriating act – like naturalizing in another country – can lose their US citizenship. One does not have to actively relinquish or abandon US citizenship in all cases either. Every year hundreds of people discover that they cannot obtain or renew US passports or even get thrown in deportation proceedings (I have seen it happen) because they expatriated themselves by voluntarily naturalizing in other countries. But whether a person automatically loses US citizenship depends on the naturalizing country’s procedures and how knowing and voluntary the process was. Since I am not licensed to practice law in the UK and do not know when and under what method Cracken might ever acquire UK citizenship, I hedged my bets in the original post by writing “may.”

        I do not believe that naturalization in the UK has zero impact, The Other Katherine. Read the “Acts and Conditions” section on the US passport renewal application. If dual national UK/US citizens renew their US passports and fail to disclose that they have naturalized in the UK, they could be accused of fraud or misrepresentation.

        But yes, littlemissnaughty, if she loses her US citizenship, she will be treated like every other foreign citizen who wishes to enter the U.S. I have had several clients over the years who were US citizens by birth but naturalized in other countries and thus lost their US citizenship. It is always a strange experience to see a former American citizen with a foreign passport showing his/her birthplace listed as “Anytown, Anystate, USA.” It is even weirder filing a US visa or green card application for them and having to explain to USCIS or a US consulate exactly why they are not considered US citizens anymore.

        Citizenship and naturalization laws change over time too. For example, for many years Mexican citizens who naturalized in the US automatically lost their Mexican citizenship. Then Mexico revised its laws so that these people could still retain their Mexican citizenship despite swearing the US oath of allegiance – which specifically requires people to “absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen.”

        One thing the US cannot prevent is countries continuing to recognize people as citizens after they have naturalized in the US. Many countries do not view US naturalization as an expatriating act or a loss of citizenship, and many of my clients have continued to renew passports, vote in elections, and otherwise exercise their rights of their native countries even though they have become US citizens.

      • The Other Katherine says:

        Unless you have subsequently acquired citizenship with a country that requires renouncing your U.S. citizenship, or the U.S. government wants to get rid of you for other reasons, it is remarkably time-consuming to get the U.S. to decide that you’re not a U.S. citizen anymore. Again, just ask the Americans in London who are waiting to complete the renunciation process. Because, unlike most other countries, the U.S. taxes on worldwide income, the financial motivation for keeping U.S. citizens in the fold, as it were, is very strong.

        Of course lying about your dual citizenship status on an application for a passport can affect your rights in the U.S. That’s an effect of lying on an application for an immigration document, not of simply holding dual citizenship.

  13. Insomniac says:

    Sorry about that, London.

  14. Hautie says:

    Say something positive ~ The Lohan edition.

    With this move to London. Lohan has looked sober and clean…. during these daylight photo moments. Her clothes and accessories, have been a better quality in general. But she still has that spotty rubbed on lotion tan. Ugh.

    So whomever is underwriting her adventures, at least it seems to be someone that has enough influence over her. To stop all the hard core 24/7 coke head behavior. And has ran her Mother off too. Matter of fact, her sister has not been seen either, has she? Just Lohan by herself… with new London friends. No one from the past is lingering around.

    • BangersandMash says:

      I agree 100% Hautie!!!!!!!!

      That’s exactly what I’m thinking too. I think that there is something about LA/NYC that wasn’t so good for her. Not to say LA/NYC are toxic places, just to say the mixture or that environment wasn’t for her. They just made a bad couple, I honestly think that London and her are getting along better, and that she seems more and more settled (less reckless) which is a good thing.

      If london will have her, they will be getting Lindsay lite. And that’s something LA/NYC hardly ever saw in her. Whomever is with her, is doing a good job at teaching her control, and helping her settle down a bit more.

    • SnarkGirl says:

      I was thinking the same! Even with her over-filled face she still looks clean & coherent. I think getting away from the toxic waste dump she calls Mom has been helpful and that might be part of why she wants to stay across the pond.

  15. LAK says:

    NNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!

    Please no!

  16. Lucy2 says:

    Please take her. Please.

  17. Amy Tennant says:

    My bet is that she suddenly develops an English accent a la Ritchie-era Madonna.

    Actually, I don’t blame her one bit. Immigrating to the UK is one of my dreams that will probably never come true. (Also I think it’s probably best for all of us if I keep an ocean between myself and David Tennant— kidding!)

    • ell says:

      i don’t get why would anyone move from the US to britain. taxes are ridiculously high here, there are NO houses, the housing market is impossible, and we have david cameron in charge. oh, and now we have lindsay lohan as well. I love london with all my heart, but no way I’d move here if I lived somewhere else.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        I could never afford to live in London, but maybe someplace farther north. I just always felt like I should be British. My ancestors are all from Scotland and England and Ireland.

  18. Elfie says:

    I think she probably likes being free of her overbearing, toxic parents. She’s far away from them and that’s a good thing. That she’s earning her living escorting is sad but she’s probably too far gone mentally to ever be a fully functional person. Better than living in a gutter I suppose.

  19. Greek chic says:

    Wow she looks bad. Bloated and plastic. These lips..
    Lindsay’s life is an endless vacation. Some days ago she was in Morocco. She’s broke and I know how she manages to “afford” that lifestyle. My questions is, why all her businessmen “friends” choose her and not a more fresh faced model…also she’s not a star these days so its not that it gives them power to be with her.
    Α positive thing: I like her hair color.

    • funcakes says:

      I brought that up once and someone wrote that maybe she’s will to go the “EXTRA” mile that the others are not willing to go.

      • Ankhel says:

        It’s her fame. She hardly gets roles anymore, but the media still covers her. Some men get off on that, even when they could get models.

        Just look at that billionaire who’s currently dating Mariah Carey… She’s not exactly the girl she used to be either.

  20. Maya Memsaab says:

    Innocent immigrants and international students are subject to UKIP slander, ‘Immigration control’ coffee mugs and ‘Go home’ UK Home Office vans, while this coked-up cockroach gets to waltz in and stay for good? Screw that.

  21. Debbie says:

    I support this. Sounds like a great idea. Cheerio Lindsey!

  22. Nonny says:

    We don’t want her!!!!!

  23. funcakes says:

    Lindsay wants to live in london because she’ll be closer to her clients: shieks, dictators,dukes,lords and princes. They love paying high hourly prices for the “company” of amercian celebrities.
    And let’s not forget her pilgrimage to Cannes. That’s the big money time of year for a the pros that want to find “sponsors” in exchange for a bit part in a movie.

    • briargal says:

      But aren’t these “supposed” clients afraid of ending up with something even bleach won’t disinfect?? Allegedly she has had so many, she is bound to end up with something like that. Uggghhh!!!

    • briargal says:

      But aren’t these “supposed” clients afraid of ending up with something even bleach won’t disinfect?? Allegedly she has had so many, she is bound to end up with something like that. Uggghhh!!! And who

  24. Mia4S says:

    Hmmm, no talk of the Oscar she’s going to win? No talk of the pile of scripts she’s looking through? Slightly less self-delusion! Who would have thought?

    Although I love that we are still keeping up the “working” charade.

  25. perplexed says:

    She has residency there? I figured she had some kind of temporary visa.

  26. whatsup says:

    Given that I’ve been working here with a bonafied hard earned visa for years and still can’t apply for citizenship, pay double taxes, etc. …iff she gets citizenship before I do, I will be a 1 woman riot across the country.

    • Jadzia says:

      whatsup, just a note to tell you something that you PROBABLY already know. But if you don’t: the double taxation continues even if you do get UK citizenship. The only way to stop the double taxation is to renounce your US citizenship (for a $2350 fee) or to convince the US government that you relinquished your US citizenship (usually through military service or a job with a foreign government) when you took out UK citizenship.

      If you do not have a Certificate of Loss of Nationality (CLN) in your hand, keep filing your taxes and FBARs! The penalties for screwing up your FBARs can be ruinous for a middle-class person (we’re talking 10K for each account that you don’t accurately report, and that is the penalty for a NEGLIGENT violation).

      • whatsup says:

        Yep I know, but I’m counting on the renouncing the citizenship aspect or the democrats staying in office as they want to reduce the double taxation burden. And FBARs are the bain of my existence! I diversified my accounts into a few savings accounts and now I have to file for each! Sigh. I really really really do not like the US government.

    • H says:

      Double taxation? There goes my dream of retiring to Ireland. Costa Rica, you’re up!

      • whatsup says:

        It’s no matter where you are….they hunt you down. There have actually been a lot of Canadians with dual citizenship who had never been to the US (just a US passport from their parents) and the IRS went after them! They even went after Boris Johnson – the mayor of London who now officially renounced his US citizenship.

      • The Other Katherine says:

        It’s not double taxation, as there is a treaty in place between the UK and the U.S. to avoid exactly this (as there is between the U.S. and most countries). The tax you pay on your income in the other country offsets your U.S. income tax liability. You still have to file an income tax return in the U.S., which is a gigantic pain, but you are not going to be paying the full whack of U.S. income tax on top of UK income tax.

        P.S. Pretty sure BoJo has not renounced his U.S. citizenship yet — he’s just announced his intention to do so. He had a big capital gains tax bill (something most of us proles aren’t faced with) that he wasn’t happy about.

      • what'sup says:

        except it’s not – it’s after a certain level. Also let’s not count into the fact the days worked in the US, etc. BoJo did at the same time he announced intention – February – pretty sure on that front.

  27. ell says:

    NO NO NO NO NO NO. why do lilo and I have to live in the same city, no. america please take her back. we have enough pollution without lindsay adding to it.

  28. GPSB says:

    Love the faces of the LV staff in the background. No doubt they defumigated after Lindsay’s exit.

  29. Crumpet says:

    Oh please oh please oh please.

  30. Ennie says:

    It’ hard over there to get a driver’s license, right? (I hope so)

  31. Steve says:

    Oh yeah,
    I remember this Friends episode….. Where the annoying ex friend of Monica and Phoebe who now resides in London and does her very best to act gentry and rich, yet looks like a hot mess. Good job WB on calling that one!

  32. Kitten says:

    Those hair extensions are so damn TRAGIC.

    Also, whatever she’s been snorting has really done a number on her nose. Her nostrils are so inflamed…looks painful.

  33. kri says:

    I think at this point, she is probably doing rails of Comet. It’s so unfair that she gets to “work” and live in London, while I can only dream of visiting one day! Take me instead, London!!!!!

    • GPSB says:

      We can always hope that Lindsay gets busted for drugs over there and gets the Stacy Keach treatment.

  34. Katy says:

    Her lips disgust me!! I just wanted to get that off my chest. Good luck England – we Americans are NOT sad to see her go.

  35. Kittypants says:

    Uh, hell to the no. We don’t need this used up shagsack bringing the tone down in the UK. Shack up with one of your “sponsors” in Dubai or something, love.

  36. yeaokay says:

    At the end of the day her life sounds lonely and sad. Just using and being used. She has no friends anymore and not even 30 years old. Just a long time ahead of the same thing. I don’t feel bad for her really but its just her life seems seedy and just long nights of random john and drugs. Do no envy her in the least.

    • RedWeatherTiger says:

      I don’t envy her, but I also don’t pity her. She has choices. She doesn’t have to get by on hooking…she could choose a more modest life and a real job with a paycheck. She could pay her own way, rent an apartment, all the stuff that all of us common folk do, and maybe get some self-esteem and pride back. But that is hard work, and she doesn’t really seem to want to work. She seems to want to be adored and dressed up and photographed, and so she seems to have exactly what she wants (or thinks she wants).

  37. lisa2 says:

    Lindsey seems to be trying.. so I’m not going to be negative. There are a lot of other celebs doing far worse than she is at the moment and people forgive them and wish them the best. So hopefully a move to London or wherever will be a good one for her and she can keep working on getting herself together.

  38. daniel says:

    Sounds like a deal if we can only convince Justin Beiber and the Khardashians to follow her, lol!
