Lindsay Lohan might convert to Islam, but hasn’t finished reading the Koran


When we last checked in on Lindsay Lohan, she was playing leak-and-deny games in the press about her “engagement” to Egor Tarabasov, a 22-year-old Russian with shady business connections living in London. For what it’s worth, I do believe that Egor proposed. And I believe that Lindsay and her people leaked the proposal story, then denied the proposal story, because the Cracken wanted attention. This week’s issue of Us Weekly has a story about how the engagement is real, with one source saying: “It was a big proposal, but it wasn’t done in public… Lindsay texted a friend a picture of the ring.” Another friend tells Us Weekly: “He loves her, protects her and keeps her out of trouble.” Spare me. I can’t wait for Egor’s (equally shady) father to come to town and shut this down. But until then, whatever you say, Cracken. Meanwhile, Lindsay told a media outlet this week that she’s “open” to converting to Islam.

Lindsay Lohan is embracing her religious reawakening as she studies Islam.

“I’m a very spiritual person and I’m really open to learning,” the Catholic-born actress told The Sun on her interest in Islam. Lohan, 29, who was spotted carrying a copy of the Koran while tending to her community service in New York last summer, also said there’s more to the text than what many people have been led to believe.

“America has portrayed holding a Koran in such a different way to what it actually is,” she explained, despite having yet to complete it.

“I’m not done reading it. Do you know how long that would take? It takes so long,” Lohan said.

Though the “Mean Girls” star didn’t divulge fiancé Egor Tarabasov‘s religious affiliation, she did share that younger sister Ali Lohan, 22, also shifted views.

“My sister is Buddhist, but she is interested in learning other things from me. It’s good to be open-minded,” Lohan revealed. “We all believe in something and at the end of the day, it all ties to a God or a spiritual adviser,” she added.

A rep for Lohan confirmed that she is exploring religions.

“Lindsay has always been very spiritual and is open to exploring all religions and beliefs. She is simply educating herself on other people’s beliefs,” her rep told to Page Six.

I’m not done reading it. Do you know how long that would take? It takes so long.” Well, she’s had a copy of the Koran for a year. It really wouldn’t be that difficult to finish reading the translation in a YEAR. It’s not that long. But that’s not the point of this exercise. The point is…???? Anyway, I’m sorry, Muslims. I’m sorry that Lindsay is using Islam to get attention.

    Lol… Trolling like this is all she has left of her ‘career’….

  2. swak says:

    Wish I had the time she has to read. If I read at all, it’s at night, in bed and I usually fall asleep reading and have to reread everything again. Just more attention. And yes, daddy dearest will shut this down as soon as sonny is done with her or before if daddy thinks she may be getting her claws in too deeply.

  3. Miss Grace Jones says:

    The only thing I’m interested in as pertains to this story is that I’m in the process of ‘reverting’ (which is the Muslim term for converting). Other than that she’s obviously full of it because she’d have to give up a lot of stuff she’s not going to give up.

  4. ReineDidon says:

    It is true it may easily take months to read. Noting that it is in very complex Arabic and you cannot understand it unless you have another book at the same time that explains the ancient words and the context behind each sourate.
    She is lost in her life and is seeking guidance. Well it is better than sombring in alcohol again. To each their own !

      Some Qur’ans like mine have annotations and explanations that makes it easier for me. What kinda took me by surprise was that it’s more a collection of speeches rather than the story telling format of the bible. So far I’ve enjoyed studying it and seeing how culture has changed its true meaning.

      • ol cranky says:

        you know what, perhaps she’ll accidentally actually do some reading and maybe what she reads will resonate with her. perhaps then she will take her studies seriously and turn her life around. If this happens, I wish her the best and hope that she will even be able to speak, coherently, on the topic of her new religion in a positive manner.

        Sadly, I doubt this will be the case but stranger things have happened.

    She can read?

    A rep for Lohan confirmed that she is exploring religions.

    I mean …. what is there to say.

    • Aussie girl says:

      I doubt she has or could even afford a rep. It’s probably her doing her parent trap English accent.

  8. Sam says:

    LOL there is nothing else to say.

  9. Firsttimecommetorlongtimelurker says:

    Well if she is considering converting/reverting to Islam it makes complete sense she hasn’t finished reading it yet. To be properly understood it must be read with other books (Hadith) to give it the right context. Furthermore it cab take many years to digest the information, reading it in one sitting won’t give you the correct understanding nor the time to condense the information. Anyway kudos to her for keeping an honest mind!

  10. JenniferJustice says:

    She isn’t using Islam to get attention. She’s using Islam to get a man.

    My brother read the entire Bible in a couple months. She’s been pretending to be interest in Islam for over a year. Carrying the Koran around is just for appearances – like an accessory that makes her seem deep. Lilo is not nor has she ever been, spiritual. She may like the idea of her being spiritual but no spiritual person would be that self-destructive and in recent years, basically prostituting herself for the sake of a rich lifestyle, and now using religion to and I’m sure an unexpected pregnancy soon to trap some poor young sap.

    P.S. Kid still looks like Boogar from Revenge of the Nerds.

  11. Mia V. says:

    She should at least convert to a burqa and prevent us from her nipples.

  12. Anotherjen says:

    She’ll look great in a burqa.

  13. Carol says:

    she hasn’t finished reading “I Spy Letters”

  14. ClaireB says:

    She’s just advertising to all the rich Muslim businessmen that she’s open for business, as you might say.

    • Sarah01 says:

      But I do feel sorry for her, her parents a complete A** and didn’t give her a loving, nurturing, protected environment.
      I really hope she just cleans up and just lives life in a more healthy way.

  15. Castor & Pollux says:

    I agree with Mia. Put those nips away, madam! I don’t buy that she has any interest in religion, but this is her career these days – trolling us (as another poster remarked upthread). I also don’t get this kid’s interest in her. He’s young, rich, reasonably attractive. And she’s….none of those things. Seriously, can someone explain what he sees in her? Publicity, maybe? The only thing I can think of is that he’s not actually that wealthy, but then she wouldn’t be with him. She’d be ‘dating’ rich oil barons from the Middle East.
