The nearly broke Lindsay Lohan is reportedly seeking half a MILLION dollars to promote an energy drink in Dubai … and if she can get it, well, more power to her.
She’ll probably waste it, to be sure, but more power to her. Not that she necessarily will. The company is, understandably, balking at that absurd amount.
“Lindsay wants $500,000 for an appearance in Dubai to promote Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Energy Drink, which executives are apprehensive about,” says a source.
Mr. Pink is prepared to offer $200,000 plus travel expenses. Not a bad payday, but even that could be at risk due to her constant legal woes. Says the source:
“The trip might not happen at all because of Lindsay’s criminal past and pending criminal charges. Dubai has very strict laws about convicted criminals entering the country.”
Moreover, Lindsay is very upset about her financial problems and doesn’t trust her new lawyer, Mark Heller, to handle the Dubai travel issues,” the insider added.
The troubled starlet, 26, was recently forced to move from LA back to NYC because she could no longer afford to pay the $8,000 monthly rent on her house.
“Lindsay is being forced to live at home with Dina because she can’t afford any other options at the moment,” an insider said. “Lindsay Lohan is broke, flat-out.”
“She can’t even afford to rent a two-bedroom apartment in North Hollywood.”
Living at home with mom was cramping LiLo’s hard partying lifestyle, and even that could be at risk. The $1.3 million Long Island mansion may soon be foreclosed on.
Dina Lohan’s financial problems have been well-chronicled throughout the years, as the world’s worst momager is reportedly more than $1 million in the red.
Like mother like daughter.
As for the energy drink appearance, “simply must happen for Lindsay. She is absolutely desperate for the cash,” the insider said. Cross your fingers.
