Lindsay Lohan isn’t dating Mohammad bin Salman, they’re ‘platonic friends’ lmao

Lindsay Lohan all smiles leaving the Mercer Hotel

Lindsay Lohan has been in New York for a week or so, I think. These are photos of her at the Mercer Hotel on the 25th. I don’t know how she can afford to fly all over the world and stay in nice hotels, but I’m sure someone is still financing her life, somehow. But is that someone…Mohammad bin Salman? MBS is the crown prince Saudi Arabia. He’s a married man and a murderer, responsible for the death and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Back in August, Page Six claimed that MBS is Lindsay Lohan’s boyfriend/sugar daddy and that he sent her a gift-wrapped credit card and he’s been buying her a lot of gifts. My theory – at the time – was that Lindsay met some shady Saudi dude and he was like “yes, I’m the crown prince of Saudi Arabia” and she believed him and started telling people that she was dating MBS. It was just so f–king random. Well, it’s about to get even more random. Lindsay’s father Michael Lohan has chimed in about the story and I seriously laughed throughout this entire f–king piece.

Lindsay Lohan isn’t having a secret affair with the bloodthirsty crown prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman, according to her dad Michael Lohan. Page Six recently reported on a wild rumor was spreading that Lohan, 33, and MBS had become close and that they’ve been regularly texting while the Saudi ruler has been flying the actress around in his jets and showering her with presents — including a gift-wrapped credit card. One respected Middle Eastern scholar remarked to Page Six, “It is astonishing that America’s closest ties to MBS are through Lindsay Lohan and Jared Kushner.”

But according to proud dad Michael, while Lindsay does know MBS, their unusual relationship is “platonic and respectful.”

He told us at Denise Rich’s Angel Ball on Monday, “They are just friends, Lindsay has a lot of powerful friends in the Middle East, because she is huge out there. Lindsay met MBS because of the work she has been doing in the Middle East. She is working to help people in the region, particularly refugees. Nobody writes about the good work Lindsay does in Syria, they just want to hear the bad stuff. She has a platonic and respectful relationship with MBS, nothing more.”

When asked if he is concerned that Lindsay is spending time with someone accused of imprisoning members of his own family and ordering the murder of prominent Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Michael added, “None of that has proven to be true. Lindsay says he’s a good person. She feels safe, she has good people around her, and she knows how to conduct herself.”

[From Page Six]

“They are just friends, Lindsay has a lot of powerful friends in the Middle East, because she is huge out there. Lindsay met MBS because of the work she has been doing in the Middle East.” Let’s just… discuss this. What’s weirder, the idea that Lindsay Lohan’s sugar daddy is MBS, or the idea that MBS and Lohan are platonic friends? I have no idea. Do you think Lindsay has “a lot of powerful friends in the Middle East”? I have my doubts, but again, someone is financing this mess. She doesn’t work, her stupid Club Lohan crashed and burned, she “stays” in Dubai and is somehow able to afford some kind of life there. And through her “work” in the Middle East, she somehow came across MBS, and then she stole his wallet or something? Is that it?

Also: “None of that has proven to be true. Lindsay says he’s a good person. She feels safe, she has good people around her, and she knows how to conduct herself.” Unlike Jamal Khashoggi, who didn’t know how to conduct himself, according to Michael Lohan.

    What is going on with her hairline?

    • Nicole says:

      She’s always had a righteous cowlick. What I really don’t understand is how her face can be so round when she’s so skinny. She was such a beautiful girl I hate that she kept messing with her face. The fillers have really messed her face up IMO.

      • Baby Jane says:

        Bulimia maybe?
        No snark, actual conjecture.

      • Meg says:

        Alcohol cigarettes coke all ages a person beyond their years. She’s my age and I look much younger than her

      • DiegoInSF says:

        I remember when I was in high school when Mean Girls came out, a friend did say she was incredibly beautiful but her hairline was her only flaw, I thought it weird and nitpicky for my friend to say that back then.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      and her face?! she really looks terrible, especially considering how beautiful she was back in the day.

      and Meg, I’m almost 20 years older than her and *I* look younger than her…AND I was a sun-worshipping lifeguard for YEARS. egad.

      • kelleybelle says:

        I never thought she was beautiful at all. Cute maybe, average, but beautiful. Nah, just my opinion. And she is ugly where it counts the most, on the inside.

    • Nightsky says:

      Maybe a case where bangs would save the day? Although it would take much more than concealing that giant forehead to make her look good again. She’s seriously trashed her looks from years of hard partying. I find it a bit fascinating though how she always has a big smile plastered on her face in every photo you see now. Maybe just so happy to have anyone want to take her photo anymore? Look, I’m still famous!!

      Edit…oops, I was trying to reply to Eenie Googles comment above.

  2. Bellagio says:

    Oh, dear. Poor people of the Middle East.

  3. Lightpurple says:

    Lindsay Lohan isn’t dating Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman; Jared Kushner is.

  4. xi tang says:

    ugh this is so gross. Like, just the thought of these two doing anything…eww…

  5. IntheKnow says:

    This is so very sad. This woman was talented in both acting and singing. She looks like she’s 50 years old. It’s unfortunate she went from earning her own money to doing what ever she is doing in the middle east. Also, rich and powerful men aren’t just giving money for free. They want something in return. ugh. and eww.

    • Megan says:

      Yep, she had a real career and she threw it all away. Her grifter family seems to be just fine with whatever she is doing to earn money.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      I still listen to her album Speak 15 years later! So sad!

    • whatWHAT? says:

      she actually (IMO) wasn’t that great at either. in the era of autotune, anyone can be a singer. she was passable, and the production on her albums helped.

      as for her acting…she was OK. not great, and not terrible, but she was the weakest part of Mean Girls. I remember hearing what a “great actress” she was before I saw the movie, and I saw her on SNL. she was stiff/wooden, and yet she overacted at the same time. then I saw one of the Herbie movies, and came away with the same impression…overacting/tries too hard because she’s so stiff.

      but I do agree that she was beautiful and built well enough to have a good career, if she didn’t throw it away over partying and a bad attitude.

      • lucy2 says:

        A lot of people who worked with her in that era felt like she had promise, and tried to help, but she rejected it.

        Her whole life is such a mess.

  6. Ellie says:

    I hope we don’t find her dead under mysterious circumstances any time soon. She is who she is, but she is still human

  7. Noodle says:

    I have no doubt she has lots of powerful “friends” there. Men who enjoy the attention and companionship of a woman who doesn’t mind being abused and beaten during sex. She is trading her body and soul (the soul part is perhaps debatable) for this lifestyle.

  8. babsjohnson says:

    Work? In Syria? With refugees? What?

    • Steff says:

      Didn’t she try to kidnap a Syrian refugee child?

      • 50centish says:

        Yeah.. she followed a family, talked to them in what she might think sounds arabic, but was just.. sounds. She accused the parents of trafficking the kids and got punched at some point. That must have been her „wonderful work with refugees“.

      • undergalaxy says:

        I hate that this comment made me remember that incident lmao

  9. Cara says:

    Poor thing, she looks terrible.
    I’m afraid she is being passed around and being used and abused by all those old pervs. They pay her for her time and that is how she lives. That is the only way she lives. If that is the case, how horrible.
    The pink eyeshadow has to stop.

  10. Sarah I the first sarah says:

    She looks terrible. She’s only 33. I can’t help it. I think she is tragic and I feel sorry for her.

  11. Jadedone says:

    Oddly she stills has a club in Athens, not sure how popular it is but that one appears to still be open.

  12. HyacinthBucket says:

    She could easily be my daughter and I feel so very sorry for her. Parents like her father, who traffick their children for the entertainment industry are imho beneath contempt.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      I know, the fact that her father is ok with the situation Lindsay is in is appalling. She is obviously a sex worker now and she doesn’t look very good anymore so who knows what she does f or these men to be paid so well (shudder). The Parent Trap was on cable recently and she was so CUTE. It’s really tragic.

  13. jenner says:

    This whole post is so bizarre. She’s huge in the Middle East?! And…her face :(

  14. Mia4s says:

    Aside from my beloved family and friends one of my main motivations for staying healthy is to live long enough to read the Vanity Fair piece or book that finally tells the whole truth about this grifter family and how the Cracken ended up “huge” in the Middle East. Reading between the lines of this story? Whoah boy!

  15. Wellsie says:

    This is horrifying. What happens to people when they become rich and famous, even if it’s just temporary? Does it mess you up or are people who seek fame at all costs already a mess? I was chatting about this with someone last night and this awful story makes me wonder again.

    • MaryContrary says:

      I think having a supportive family would help with that. The Lohans are all horrible.

      • What. . .now? says:

        I think for a lot of child/teen stars if they have a strong family, and a parent who cares about their child/ren, then things can turn out okay.

        For instance: Cory Feldman often says how he and Corey Haim were basically left to fend for themselves at 11-12 years old and that’s how they ended up in so much trouble–also their family counted on them as the bread winners. He ALSO goes on to mention Elijah Wood. He said Elijah’s mother was always on set with him (as a child of course), no matter what. At the end of the work day, she took Elijah home and he was not allowed to go to parties or anywhere etc. Also, that adults weren’t allowed to take him somewhere on set that was “private” in order to talk to him. His mother was adamant about that and insisted if some adult needed to talk to him, they could say it in front of her. He said that’s why he’s “normal”, Elijah’s family actually cared about him and not his money.

      • blacktoypoodle says:

        Huge blessings on Elijah Wood’s mother. How rarely do we hear of things like that.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        I think the Fanning ladies have parents that are the same as Woods’. both of those young women seem to be pretty OK in their personal lives.

    • Mia4s says:

      It seems to be brutal on even those who have stable family and a strong structure. Without that? Forget about it! So she never had a chance.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      You got to remember she was famous since she was a kid, she probably can’t even fathom not being in the spotlight.

  16. Monicack says:

    Why so much pity for someone who is leading the life she wants to live? Is it because we refuse to believe that anyone would choose to be this destructive? Is it because she was a child star and we assume that she lost all of her agency/autonomy? Well guess what, I Believe she is a bad person. I believe that her family is guilty of monetizing her conceit and arrogance even if she was naturally talented as an actress. I believe that if she were the greeter at a Mobile, Alabama Walmart she would still be a garbage person.

    Never in a million years would I wish ill upon her but I save my sympathy for women who are trapped in a cycle of poverty and/or abuse with no way out. I save my sympathy for women who will never be able to optimize or realize their potential because they don’t have access to resources. I save my sympathy for the victims of sexual violence – The same type of women who are predated upon by the Terry Richardson’s and Harvey Weinstein‘s of the world. You know, the guys that Lindsay chooses to publicly defend.

    • Von says:

      @monicack is your sympathy limited? If you sympathize with one person (like Lohan) does it really make it harder for you to sympathize with poor women and victims of sexual assault and the rest? I’m not trying to insult you, I just genuinely don’t understand this mindset where sympathy is a finite resource that needs to be doled out sparingly lest you run out. I find that the more I practice sympathizing the easier it gets. But I’ve heard similar arguments about Meghan Markle, that people save their sympathy for the homeless rather than a wealthy woman, so it must be a common sentiment. It’s not one I understand I’m afraid.

    • Monicack says:


      On the contrary, I don’t have sympathy for her because she is indeed part of the problem. She is just one of many entitled, arrogant, selfish, destructive human beings who make life miserable for others. She is not a link in the domino effect of abuse but rather I see her as someone who is so entirely consumed with herself and her own selfish wants and needs That she is conscientiously unwilling to do any of the heavy lifting it takes to be a good person. People like that are dangerous and they are the reason that others suffer needlessly. If I have no sympathy for Harvey Weinstein I have no sympathy for Lindsay Lohan. The same way people have no sympathy for Ivana Trump, nor should they, is the same way I feel about this.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, this woman had the MIGHTY OPRAH trying to help her, and she still couldn’t get her sh*t together. she had opportunity after opportunity, second chance after second chance, and she couldn’t stay straight…or even “straight enough” to get to the set on time…or at all.

      I honestly think she’s happy where she is, and doesn’t really need anyone’s sympathy.

    • Sunnydaze says:

      I completely agree – I think this is also an opportunity to consider language: in the counseling field we always encourage empathy over sympathy, and it’s a distinction that gets a bit muddy since you’ll find varying definitions. Think of it as a ladder – step one, pity – I see your pain/circumstance and it makes me uncomfortable. Step two, sympathy – I see your pain and I want better for you. Step three, empathy – I both recognize your pain and am willing to share in it. Step four, compassion – I see and share your pain and I will actively seek to lessen it in some way. There’s a few more, but I find this flow helpful when trying to sort out how I feel about a situation. With this, I hover between pity and sympathy: this circumstance makes me uncomfortable because I don’t know what’s beneath the surface, if it’s trauma, mental illness, or if this is all her choice and she feels empowered. logically I see the potential for these circumstances coming from a history of at the very least less than stellar parenting and family systems. So on that assumption I do want better for her, I want better for anyone who is a product of crappiness, but I’m not willing to share in that pain or try to identify with it in effort to lessen my discomfort. Kind of like, “hey girl, thoughts and prayers…or whatever….” *Shrug and headshake*

    “the good work Lindsay does in Syria”

    would be lmao if it weren’t an insult to the people who risk their lives there working with refugees and civilians under attack

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Yes, and what timing for the Lohan’s to step up and make claims that she’s helping Syria, just when the Kurds are being slaughered by Trump’s deal with Erdogan and Assad. Sickening propaganda peddlers. To think that Lindsay Lohan has come to this–treasoning with the underworld.

  18. Sarah says:


  19. Tia says:

    I think she acts very much like the victim of sexual abuse at a young age. I’m not saying all victims act like this but some do. Her family seem to be fine pimping her out now so long as the money comes in. I wish I didn’t think they would have done the same at a much younger age. Some people don’t come back from that sort of abuse and sadly I think she may be one of them.

  20. Nightsky says:

    Well sure, because everyone knows most shady Saudi princes just really want to be pals with skanky women. Especially women with a substantial history of lying, thieving and ho’ing themselves out to the highest bidder. I’m sure they just sit around playing scrabble and watching cooking shows.

  21. JanetFerber says:

    I don’t understand why she’s “huge” in the Middle East. Why? Yes, I liked her in The Parent Trap and Mean Girls. Her horrible parents and upbringing pretty much de-railed her career. She is pathetic, and I don’t mean that in a nasty way. She really did have a lot of potential and what the hell happened? Just wow.

    • Lea says:

      She is huge because there is some sort of fascination for foreign women in the Middle-East and in some Asian countries, because they are so different from local women. Wealthy men won’t marry them, but they are really sought after as sugar babies.

  22. virginfangirls says:

    Her dad is living in dream world.

  23. Lulu says:

    ‘She is huge in the Middle East’? How insulting to us. I live in Dubai and the only time I ever hear about this skank is on the very rare occasion when celebitchy, an American site, writes about her.

  24. Bee says:

    Lindsay made some bank ($800k apparently) being a judge of the Australian version of The Masked Singer recently. She seemed sober and looked healthy. She’s been confirmed to return for a second run next year . So……she does have a job and is *possibly* making her own way right now. Go Lindsay! I’ve always thought Lindsay wasn’t completely beyond redemption.
