Lindsay Lohan is doing some kind of ill-conceived documentary for the BBC in which she’s highlighting child trafficking in India. In this, her first effort with any kind of charity work that I can recall, Lohan isn’t shy about proclaiming her virtuousness. The 23 year-old strung out former child star tweeted that she’d saved a full 40 children in her first day’s work. “Over 40 children saved so far… Within one day’s work… This is what life is about… Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!” Later she added “Oh, and I’m talking about being in India.” Lohan has seen deleted that megalomaniacal tweet (I’m using the thesaurus today) but she already put it out there and can’t take it back now. She also deleted these tweets, (via Us Weekly) “Trafficking is a big issue here, I’m [here to do] what I can, and I will continue to do so as long as life when time permits it. Never too late to star helping others, however you can.”
Radar Online is reporting that Lohan isn’t handling her first day in India well, despite how impressed she seems with herself. There’s some kind of lack of security and she’s said to fear for her safety.
“She is a little overwhelmed and a little freaked out,” a source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Lindsay is trying to be a trooper but the whole experience is a little scary.”
Flanked by friend Patrick Aufdenkamp and her bodyguard, Lohan is primarily nervous about the lack of man power around. “There is still unrest in India and her celebrity makes her vulnerable,” the source added. “There isn’t much security there in general.”
While the trip was originally set up through philanthropist Scott Lazerson’s Interface Foundation, RadarOnline.com has learned that Lohan is on the trip with a UK-based production company seeking to do a documentary on human trafficking.
Publicly, Lohan is putting on a brave face.
Does “overwhelmed” and “freaked out” translate to “going through withdrawl” and “jonesing for a fix”? Maybe not in Lohan’s case, as most of her drugs seem to be pharmaceuticals and you can take those overseas without a problem. Do you think someone in Lohan’s camp leaked this story so that she wouldn’t seem like a quitter if she split early? “Oh the security was bad, I was afraid for my life.” That feeling of overwhelming self-righteousness only goes so far.
Meanwhile Lohan has sent some tweets to Jessica Alba’s husband, Cash Warren. Lohan and Warren were allegedly spotted making out at a club a few weeks ago, which Lohan denies, claiming that Cash is a “business partner.” On December 4th, she wrote “@cash_warren r u @ [Lakers] game too? watching it wishing i went!” and on November 28th “@cash_warren that’s really cute- i love my mix cd!!!!!” Cash was at that Laker’s game – with his wife, Jessica Alba. Alba didn’t look happy, but she rarely does.
