Well this just makes us want to burst into tears and watch The Parent Trap over and over in mourning for the pair of adorable little wise-crackin’ red-headed girls. Why, you ask? Because that pair of red-headed girls has grown up to become a single red-headed train-wreck called Lindsay Lohan, who is now reduced to being a high-priced escort. At least that’s if you believe her dad Michael, who has taken his bold claims to Star Magazine.
“She is getting paid to date rich men,” says the always quotable Mike. “Dina [her mother] is pimping her out – it’s disgusting!” The article goes on the quote another source with “insider” knowledge on all things Lohan. ”The dates last for days, and the guys pay for everything -hotel, travel costs, food, whatever- as well as jewelry and other gifts.” Some of the evidence does seem pretty damming. The financially strapped actress did indeed spend the New Years holiday with Prince Haji Abdul Azim of Brunei, for which she reportedly earned “at least $100,000″ plus assorted pricey gifts like iPads and more jewelry. And then there was the time she dated that 40-year-old billionaire named Vikram Chatwal.
So yes, the facts are there if you choose to read them that way. But we also have to wonder if this is Michael’s revenge on Dina for her recent claims that he physically abused her when Lindsay was a toddler in the late 1980s. Yet even if that story is total bogus, Mike did just essentially call his daughter a hooker in the national news. So he mostly likely won’t be winning any Father Of The Year awards anytime soon.
Predictably, Lindsay’s reps are denying the whole story, telling Entertainmentwise that the claims are “false” and “total nonsense.” Total nonsense? We’ve got your total nonsense right here! It’s called Liz & Dick! Amirite?! We apologize, we’ll officially retire the Liz & Dick digs very soon. But seriously, between her legal fees, sky-high taxes and the odd $50,000 hotel bill, the girl needs to find a way to get the cash flowing. Might we suggest acting?
