Page Six: There’s a rumor about Lindsay Lohan & Mohammad bin Salman

Lindsay Lohan is all smiles as she arrives for the Magic Hour rooftop party.

Mohammad bin Salman is the crown prince of the House of Saud, meaning one day, he’ll be king of Saudi Arabia. Most likely, although Saudi Arabia doesn’t actually follow the traditional “first-born son of the king” thing. The current king chooses his favorite (maybe a brother, maybe a son or nephew) and makes that guy the crown prince. Mohammad bin Salman’s position as crown prince is notable because of his age – he’s only 33 years old, but clearly, his family thinks he has a lot of potential. What else? MBS has a wife. MBS is also a killer, having ordered the assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. And now we have a new title for MBS: possible sugar daddy to Lindsay Lohan. This clearly came from Lindsay’s people and I can’t stop gasp-laughing.

What the heck is going on with Lindsay Lohan and Mohammad bin Salman? A wild rumor hit town that Lohan and the bloodthirsty crown prince of Saudi Arabia have gotten close, and that he’s been flying her around in his jets and showering her with presents — including a gift-wrapped credit card. And when we started asking around, a source in her inner circle acknowledged that they “know each other.”

Now a rep for Lohan tells us that the pair met just once — around a year ago at a Formula One Grand Prix race. The rep also denied that bin Salman — who has been accused of ordering the 2018 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi — gave Lohan a credit card. Either way, pals of Lohan — who even say they’ve seen text exchanges between the pair — are boasting about what they claim is a new friendship. The rep called those claims “lies.”

While the “Herbie: Fully Loaded” star and the vicious authoritarian would seem to make for an unlikely twosome, sources close to Lohan, who has been partly based in nearby Dubai for the past couple of years, told Page Six that it’s not unusual for the “Rumors” singer to be courted by Middle Eastern dignitaries. “They go crazy for her out there,” exclaimed one insider.

I mean… I’ve been trying to work out what to say about this without offending anyone and without taking it too seriously. I mean, it’s so f–king random, there has to be *some* explanation for it. My theory is that Lindsay really did meet a Saudi guy and he was trying to impress her and he was like “yes, I’m rich, I’m the crown prince of Saudi Arabia,” and she believed it even though he was just some guy. The only part of this that I really believe is that Lindsay is popular in the Middle East. I’m not saying she’s got a long list of dignitary boyfriends/johns, but I think she has enough interest from a handful of wealthy guys and… that’s how she supports herself.

    This is such a bizarre story. I didn’t realize Lohan spent so much time in the Middle East. And MBS? Huh.

    It’s so weird that it seems there has to be a grain of truth to it somewhere, but I cant figure out where exactly. Just the LL has some rich boyfriends in the middle east?

    And yes its important to point out that MBS a really terrible person.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I think this is more of an attention seeking story from Lilo and maybe its an offer to MBS :)

      I recently watched a documentary about the sex trade and one girl was talking about Middle Eastern clients, she basically said they have ‘kinky’ tastes esp when it comes to partying with western women. By kinky she meant degradation/humiliation – they love to degrade/humiliate western women, she said you are very very well rewarded for it but its not for the faint hearted as things can get rough. As for Lohan there has been stories for years about the type of clients/parties she attends with her new ‘wealthy friends’ and there are reasons why she is always covered in bruises (apparently showing them off is part of advertising your services). If even a smidgen of the stories are true then I can see why she keeps with the coke. She has truly fallen to the depths.

    • Earthbound Misfit says:

      What’s so hard to figure out? She’s been a paid escort for years.

  2. Jo73c says:

    Yeah, LL met a Saudi guy who told her he’s the crown prince, so she lifted his credit card and ignored his text messages asking her to stop buying shit with it.

  3. Aims says:

    That first picture looks like she’s possessed. I thought it was long rumored that her “boyfriends” helped fund her lifestyle. We know she’s not working.

    • Nexus says:

      I think there’s no point walking on eggshells about it – she obviously is financed by wealthy Middle Eastern men. What she does for that money is no different than what every other actress and model who “just happens” to be hanging out in Dubai is doing for it.

      However, most try to hide this. Only Lins would try to pretend she was involved with MbS. Poor thing.

    • Megan says:

      I hope she is saving some of that money because she will age of out her gig.

    • holly hobby says:

      She looks harder than when she first started in the business. This is so unfortunate.

      • Lady D says:

        She was 6 when she started in the business. She has 20+ years of drugs and alcohol abuse, not to mention not eating right or getting enough sleep. (not to mention her pastimes) I’m amazed she looks as normal as she does.

  4. Naomipaige99 says:

    It’s probably some PR stunt put together by LL and her mom! I don’t buy it.

  5. (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

    Yup, not buying this; calling total BS. Just another thing to try and stay relevant. Wasn’t she just laughed at in Australia’s Masked Singer show? While I do think she …ahem…”entertains” Middle Eastern “gentlemen” to pay her way, there’s not a chance this is true.

  6. trout predator says:

    I think you’re bang on. Some dude told LL he’s MBS, and she’s so pickled she believed it.

  7. TQ says:

    I mean, there have been rumours about her ‘yachting’ activities abroad for years. She was extremely cash strapped before she moved to Dubai, including running out on a $46,000 Chateau Marmont bill (https://www.eonline.com/uk/news/973102/inside-lindsay-lohan-s-complicated-post-hollywood-life). After she moved to Dubai she suddenly started traveling the world in style and going to events like Formula One Grand Prix, which seem to be at a totally different level then her prior party scenes. Given that she doesn’t seem to be working much in tv or film, ‘friends’ funding her lifestyle doesn’t seem far-fetched. She wouldn’t be the first. Who knows if MBS is in the mix.

  8. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Imagine thinking this is something to brag about.

    • Mia4s says:

      It’s horrifying isn’t it? Hey Cracken, could you ask him where the body pieces of the journalist he ordered murdered are? You know, for his grieving family. FFS.

      And the end game is what? More clients? Has to be. It’s certainly not acting or music work. Does she think Scorsese read this and called her agent? That the makers of Marvel and Star Wars are currently fighting over who gets to cast her first? If anything they are running away even faster than before.

      It’s amazing to remember she was legit once upon a time.

      • Montréalaise says:

        I still remember when she was a teenager; people were praising her acting talent and predicting she’d be the next Meryl Streep. She has fallen so, so far.

      • LadyT says:

        I saw her on Dr Phil around the time Mean Girls came out. (I don’t know what I was thinking either) She was blitzed on cocaine, talking 90 mph. Reminded me exactly of Dana Plato. I couldn’t believe no one called her on it.

  9. Danielle says:

    I used to live in the UAE and although it was known that she spent time in Dubai no one cared at all, she’s not famous or anything over there. But dating a Westerner is seen as a bit of a novelty for the locals, so I’d well believe that she has a rich sugar daddy on the go to fund her lifestyle. I would highly doubt that it’s anyone of note, specially a Saudi – they keep their shit locked down.

  10. OriginalLala says:

    Whether this is true or not, why would anyone think bragging about getting involved with a despicable murderer is a good look?

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      This is all part of the Lilo delusion that she’s still famous and she’s clearly desperate for the attention. This is the idiot that tried to insert herself into the Weinstein scandal by defending him. This is on brand for her.

    • Christina says:

      Cocaine and a total lack of self esteem does things to the brain. We can’t understand it. I’ve seen women like this, and I’m glad am don’t understand. She can’t be a movie star, and that’s all she wants and knows, so this is the next best thing.

  11. whitecat says:

    I mean it wouldnt be the first rumour I heard of MBS and a high-end escort, sorry I mean.. washed up actress *cough*.

  12. Harryg says:

    Loathe the Saudi royal family. Loathe them. Vulgar awful creeps.

  13. Erinn says:

    The thing is – if this was 10 – 15 years ago, I might believe it. But… why would she still be popular. It’s not like she’s an attractive woman at this point – she can’t act / doesn’t get any roles, so it’s not even the cheese factor of “oh she is a CELEBRITY!”.

    • Kitten says:

      I can’t stop laughing at her being referred to as “the Herbie: Fully Loaded star” LOL.
      That movie was a million years ago, right?
      And wasn’t it widely-panned?

      • Cindy says:

        It was. I don’t understand why they didn’t refer to her as the “Mean Girls”or “Parent Trap” star, since those are obviously the movies people are likely to recognise her from.

      • T1000 says:

        Haha yes! Also, “the ‘Rumors’ singer.” Because that song epitomizes her wildly successful singing career! 🤣

      • Kebbie says:

        I think it’s an intentional dig lol

    • Esme says:

      Vulgar dirty old men have vulgar taste… I see her as being popular with a certain disgusting sort. I just don’t believe MBS is involved – the random dude claiming to be a prince theory sounds very likely.

      • Nexus says:

        Old? Plenty of the Middle Eastern men that like to rent out models and actresses aren’t old at all. It’s just their culture to have tastes like this.

        But no chance on earth it’s actually MbS.

      • Esme says:

        Nexus, that’s even worse… vulgar dirty young and middle aged men, in addition to the “classic” dirty old men… gaaah… money can truly corrupt the soul, it’s disgusting.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        @Esme, am not sure its money that gives them this attitude, its an ingrained sexist/misogynistic stereotype against women that is prevalent in the Middle East. Their religious cleric’s openly promote this attitude – an attitude where they say that if a women leaves her home wearing makeup and perfume then she is an adulteress (see article below). We are talking about a region where women cannot go out on their own and having to ask their father/husband/brother’s permission to visit even a beauty salon. In Saudi, women were only give the right to drive last year. This article is a prime example of their mind set:

        https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/saudi-arabia-women-rape-sexual-harassment-men-middle-east-muslim-a8010511.html

      • Nexus says:

        Yup, Digital Unicorn.

        It’s revolting and yet because they have oil money in the region, a blind eye is turned.

        Everyone’s out to make a buck, no one cares who gets hurt.

        You can’t talk about how much they love FGM, or the sky-high rates of child sex abuse, or the hatred and murder of gay people… apparently it’s all racist to do so.

      • Esme says:

        @DU thanks for the link

      • OriginalLala says:

        @Nexus, well yea it would be racist if you are insinuating that all Middle Easterners act this way, they don’t. Saudi Arabia =/= all Middle Eastern cultures.

        it’s disgusting that the world turns a blind eye to the awful crap perpetuated by the Saudis

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        OriginalLala is right. It’s not racist to speak out about female genital mutilation, homophobia, or honor crime, or the misogynistic mentalities and messages that lead to them. It’s not racist to call out sexual predators either. Just like what was said about R.Kelly: It’s not a woke move or an intersectional move to normalize a woman (and/or person from the lgbt community) being abused or discriminated against just to avoid being seen as racist.
        It’s the lumping everyone into the same category (sometimes based on misidentifying groups of people too) and selectively making some the ones to answer for everything people from their group or part of the world have done wrong that’s racist. Assuming someone must have experienced female genital mutilation, sexual abuse, or physical abuse based on nothing but where their parents came from or the fact that they were religious would be racist and problematic. Framing misogynistic morality, homophobia, rape culture, or transphobia as concerns only people of a certain race would dare care about (another version of Colombusing) and basically drowning out the voices of progressives from other parts of the world and their descendents is also racist, and a trap used by bigots from all different backgrounds. The way a lot of Hijab-wearing Muslim women are treated is often racist, xenophobic, and hypocritical. The list could go on and on, but those are just some examples.

      • Whitecat says:

        Can we please not with their ‘culture’? I am an Arab woman, and the Arab culture is so vast and varied, and has a long tradition (before Wahhabism took a hold of Saudi Arabia’s state in 1970s).
        You wouldn’t believe how many Arabs despise the royal Saudi family and the way they are waging harmful stereotypes among us. And plus even if you go compare Jordanian Royal family and Saudi royal family (they are btw originally from the same region – Hijaz), you will even see huge differences between the two.
        Not every wealthy middle eastern man is MBS, ask Rihanna how her Saudi billionaire is treating her.

      • fishface says:

        @Digital Unicorn – those are big, sweeping statements about men in the Middle East. I lived there and yes – true of some, but not true of all. And probably more so in KSA, but not necessarily so in the UAE, Oman etc.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        @ Digital Unicorn : I feel the need to respond to your comments because I lived in Saudi last year and will be returning in a few days to return to my job teaching english. I don’t think it’s accurate to paint Saudis as all being the same in their beliefs. I lived in an apartment-hotel and mixed with “regular folks” every day. I taught in a vocational college where my female students were in their twenties. I asked students how old their mothers were when they married and if they (the students) were married. What was interesting was that many of the mothers had married in their early teens but NONE of the daughters had (most were university educated and single). The students would come to school with makeup and perfume every day and inside of the school, they wore regular western clothes. The secretary for our department was single, lived at home and worked full-time. Her sister did too and had been transferred by her employer to another city where she was living on her own. Their father did not have any problem with either of his daughters working full-time or with the daughter moving away. I agree that the Saudi system is oppressive to women and denies them basic human rights. I don’t think anyone can argue otherwise. But within that system, the Saudi people are more complex than would appear. Even within Saudi, it varies depending on the city you live in. Jeddah is more relaxed, more remote cities (like where I lived) are more conservative.

      • Lady D says:

        Appreciate the information on your Saudi lifestyle, I really enjoy reading about other cultures. Thank you @Whitecat, @fishface, and @Still_Sarah.

  14. Cee says:

    I’ve met some young women who lived in these type of countries for a year or two, befriending certain men, and when they do return to Argentina they suddenly own very expensive real estate. So yeah, this is how Lindsay Lohan supports herself. It’s sad because she had potential and now she is reduced to”befriending” wealthy men.

  15. Mrs. Peel says:

    That has got to be the worst pic of Lohan I’ve ever seen.

  16. olive says:

    i know we’ve been saying this for years about lindsay but this time… you in danger, girl

  17. Lightpurple says:

    Nagini will be furious. MBS is hers, her backup for the uncooperative Justin Trudeau.

    • Starkiller says:

      Is this…some type of code? Who/what is Nagini? What is MBS? What does Justin Trudeau have to do with any of it?

      • Mia4s says:

        MBS= Mohammad bin Salman

        Nagini = Ivanka Trump. Named after a snake who collaborated with the most evil people imaginable in Harry Potter. It fits. Some of the photos of her staring at Trudeau are…telling. But he is a decent human so I guess she’s eyeing blood thirsty dictators now?

      • Joanna says:

        Oh thank you! I’ve been wondering what people meant by calling her that! I thought I was the only one that didn’t know.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      Light purple I laughed out loud at your joke. Also got all of the references. Hummmm Maybe my Georgetown Law education also left Me as a middle schooler. Question is there a place on this site to report trolls… asking for a few friends.

      Also, I agree Lindsey is looking worse for wear.

  18. RoyalBlue says:

    The question is who won’t Lindsay Lohan date. Far be it from me to question a woman’s dating choices. Now she has evil dictator checked off her black book list.

  19. Lady D says:

    I’m sorry, the Rumors singer? I’m only familiar with one Rumors and it did not come from this trick. Also, when was her music career?

    • Cindy says:

      She had a moderately succesful musical career before she went down the drain. It was actually good (for pop music, that is). Rumors is quite a fun bop actually.

      She has a song called “Confessions of a Broken Heart”. It’s a pop power ballad, but listening to that song now after seeing what’s become of her is extremely awkward and sad, and gives the song a much deeper meaning.

    • Mia4s says:

      Not that one. Another one. About…12 years ago maybe? It’s on YouTube..it’s very very average.

  20. skeptical says:

    I don’t mean to get all Miss Pitty-Pat from Gone with Wind about it, but is Lohan really received in these circles?

  21. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Only thing that caught my eye in that excerpt was, ‘Herbie Fully Loaded,’ lmao. It’s cracking me up that had to be brought to the forefront as a ‘memorable’ reference. I bet Lindsey is the only ‘celebrity’ who can’t survive six degrees of Kevin Bacon. :D

    • PlainJane says:

      That ‘Herbie Fully Loaded’ reference got me too! Has it really gone that far?

      Apparently, the answer is yes.

    • HMC says:

      Unfortunately she can. 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon is my favorite game. She’s 2.

      She was in Georgia Rule with Laurie Metcalf
      Laurie Metcalf was in JFK with Kevin Bacon

  22. Me says:

    All she has to do is scan recent headlines about Princess Haya who fled to the UK from Dubai with her two children and now fears for her life. Her husband –the supposedly forward-thinking ruler of Dubai– has confined and allegedly tortured two of his daughters (Latifa and Soumsa) for trying to leave the country. Men can leave whenever they like, but women are nothing, and are completely controlled by their husbands or fathers. It made me shudder.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yes thats a big story here in the UK, she’s taken steps to stop him taking the children back to UAE. She claims she has new information on what happened to Latifa (who’s own father had his country’s special forces KIDNAP her and drag her back home). Haya comes from the Jordanian royal family, so even that doesn’t offer her any protection from that monster.

      About men being allowed to leave when they want, not entirely true – MBS arrested male family members, imprisoned them and only released them when they handed over money and other assets to him. Some of them are not allowed the leave the country. If the King decides to make someone else Crown Prince, MBS won’t last long – he is pretty much hated by the extended Saudi royal family and certain parts of the religious elite. He has way to many enemies.

      • Me says:

        Just looking at his face gives me the heebie-jeebies. He looks so ruthless. Thanks for the heads-up about new news regarding Haya. I also read that he wanted to marry off their 11-year-old daughter. So don’t know if this is just rumor. There’s a heartbreaking video about Latifa on YouTube and 60 minutes Australia just did a piece about all of this. They interviewed a male cousin who’s talking about what happens inside the palace walls. He actually used to be female and transitioned to male, so you can guess how that would go over.

      • Me says:

        Forgot to mention that the 60 minutes Australia documentary is also available on YouTube.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        @ Me : Haya has two children – an 11 year old girl and an 8 year old boy. So by the process of elimination, I figure that the “no forced marriage” order from the British courts is about the 11 year old girl. So awful.

    • huckle says:

      I feel terrible for this lady and her children but didn’t she consider what she was getting into before she married and had kids with this man? I do not know her background but I know she was highly educated. Lindsay comes from an unstable background and has not been educated except maybe in the school of hard knocks. I won’t judge either one but why the vitriol for Lindsay and not for the princess? Or at least, can’t they both be hated equally? Lindsay at least hasn’t brought any children in this world to be tortured by their father.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        Her being educated doesn’t mean she had some kind of premonition that all of this would be happening to her and her family. Anyone can be abused. Lindsay Lohan is being judged more harshly than Princess Haya because of things people have known about her character for years. Neither should be victim-blamed though.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        Princess Haya is the half-sister of King Abdullah of Jordan. Their father was the late King Hussein of Jordan who was married four times and had children with all of his wives. I thought this connection would give Haya power but then I read that Dubai is a major contributor to the government of Jordan (hundreds of millions of dollars to support a weak Jordanian economy with millions of people depending on it). So Haya’s marriage may have been a political power play as well as a marriage to a “suitable” man who was probably pretty charming when he wanted to be. Haya herself may have agreed to the marriage as a way to solidify the ties between these countries and to help her people in the long run.

  23. lucy2 says:

    The whole thing is sad and gross. It was bad enough when she had drug issues and was stealing stuff from people a lot, but the way she’s been living the past few years is just a whole other level of icky.
    She had a lot of people in her corner who tried giving her second, third, fourth, fifth chances, and she squandered it all.

  24. Kathryn says:

    This isn’t that much of a stretch. She’s been living in Dubai for years and hasn’t worked and uh…it’s really no mystery how she’s supporting herself.

  25. Nicegirl says:

    I think it’s courting danger of LL to insinuate any type of connection to MBS. It’s idiocy. The Saudi RF is a dangerous group and she has no idea who she’s playing with if she’s running with anyone in their sphere. How does she expect to be safe? You’d think she’d send a message through ‘proper murderer’ channels if she were truly applying for a ‘job’ and is aware of the discretion necessary to obtain such employment. I’m one thinking she’ll end up found somewhere as well if she’s not careful and smart. Which we know she’s not.

    • Eliza says:

      She’s been operating in that country for a while. Who’s to say this was her idea? Would you tell that man no, when all your “work” is in that country, and he can control if you can go back in. You think she’d want to go back to skipping out on hotel bills?

    • Joanna says:

      I think the dumb broad is full of it. She’s only spreading the rumor since he’s in the news right now. Very dumb move but her lying, thieving ass is not known for being smart. Sorry not sorry.

  26. skeptical says:

    I nothing else, I guess I thought Lohan some modicum of street smarts? It’s sad to think that this is her comfort zone in life. Honestly I’m ashamed to say I found her kind of entertaining in her Hollywood scofflawing days but this is sad.

  27. JanetFerber says:

    The last pic of the Saudi Prince and Putin is so chilling: both nefarious murderers/ corrupt billionaires who have no respect for the human rights or dignity of others than themselves. Naturally, Trump would like to be part of this boys’ club and this is where his heart truly lies: with the despicable of the earth.

  28. Christo says:

    She is disgusting. An abuse victim destined to be in the company of abusive tyrants—whether they be Russian or Saudi. Good luck with that.

  29. Fluffy Princess says:

    Nothing that LL does surprises me. So, if this is true — not surprised. If it’s not, and she’s with some other rich guy – not surprised.

    She is just a sad, sad case that happens to child stars.

  30. Rocķy says:

    Most shocking part about this is that she still has reps who can be contacted for comment

  31. Egla says:

    A girl I knew was offered a job in Dubai as some manager of sorts. She was actually chased for weeks by some agency here. She was looking for a better job than the one she had here but not abroad. This girl is beautiful, smart, speaks 4 languages. She questioned the pay check and it was very very low. When she asked how could she live there with that kind of money the girl of the agency told her that she would be living in a hotel and all her meals would be paid and she could do extra work after her day work of only 4 hours.

    She was confused about a management work of 4 hours and extra work in the afternoon. She was also promised and allowance of some thousand dollars for “work clothes” and was shown a job contract she had to sign beforehand. It was basically a NDA more than a contract. She was being offered an escort type of job but with legal papers as an “ animator/shift manager” in a club. Her brother went and smashed the glass desk of that agency and called the police on them. They closed that agency and after some days opened another one across the street. The job was for 6 months only

    • Joanna says:

      Wow! Glad she didn’t fall for it. I feel like some girls do. They think a little sex, some easy money. But what they don’t realize is that “men” who pay for sex think they can do whatever they want w their “purchase. “

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        And a lot of that mentality is due to the fact that men have not only been socialized to view women as property in general, but because society has made it ok to view ‘unchaste’ women in particular as trash or even as ‘the enemy’ , with sex workers being at the bottom of that hierarchy but with all women being effected by it in some way. Dehumanization has radicalizing consequences.

      • Turtledove says:

        “They think a little sex, some easy money. ”

        Or they are very naive and don’t realize what is actually being offered until they get there. HORRIFYING!

  32. SJR says:

    Wow, LL looks really tough in the header photo.
    Shame, she seems really to be on a bad road. She had talent, is it drugs or bad choices, or mental health issues?

  33. Anna says:

    Wasn’t there story that LL was secretly an escort?

  34. laura-j says:

    She makes me so sad. Remember how gorgeous and bubbly she was a a teen? She was a delight to watch (Mean Girls anyway). She really reminds me of Winehouse (not nearly as talented, but similar trajectory) , how everyone made fun of her then she died. When talented people are surrounded by the wrong people it can really mess them up.

    Truly it’s just sad across the board.
