Hey, remember Lindsay Lohan?
Well, if you’re Australian and/or Cody Simpson, then you probably couldn’t forget her if you tried. Allow us to explain:
You see, while Americans rejected the idea of "Lindsay Lohan reality star" by banding together as a nation and refusing to watch Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, the Aussies lack the wherewithal to rid of themselves of either the tyranny of the British crown or the Disney Ginger Princess of the ’90s. Sad.
As a result, they’re stuck with LiLo hosting their version of The Masked Singer.
And what does all this have to do with Cody Simpson, you ask?
Well, Simpson is doing more than just banging Miley Cyrus these days.
Not a whole lot more, mind you … but a little bit more.
For instance, he recently won the Australian version of The Masked Singer!
Even more impressive is the fact that he accomplished this feat despite being forced to endure the explicit prejudice of one of the show’s judges — one Lindsay Dee Lohan!
When Lindsay correctly guessed that Cody was the crooner inside the Robot costume, she took advantage of the opportunity to roast his ass over so some stolen furniture:
"If it is you, we have a lot to talk about, and this is not the arena for it," she said, prior to his unmasking.
"I want my furniture back! Because I bought your furniture for your house in Venice!" Lindsay added.
And why would Lindsay buy a house full of furniture for a random 22-year-old Aussie pop star?
(We know this is a lot of rhetorical questions, but we swear it’s leading somewhere.)
For the answer to that, we direct you to an Instagram post that Lindsay posted and promptly deleted earlier this week.
Yes, it seems Cody recently dated — and presumably dumped — Lindsay’s younger sister, Aliana.
And apparently, Lindsay is still pretty pissed about it.
“When you realise (sic) you failed. And you settle for less @codysimpson," she captioned the post.
"Family is everything you won the masked singer but you lost on your future,”
Due to the fact that Cody is dating Miley, this post was widely interpreted as Lohan’s way of throwing shade at the couple.
However, reps for the former actress tell TMZ that that was not Lindsay’s intention, and this was meant to be an "inside joke" between herself and Cody.
An inside joke that she deleted the moment she began to face backlash.
We’re not buying it, but at the same time, we’re inclined to let Lindsay off the hook for this one.
She hasn’t been the same since she learned she wasn’t cast as the lead in the live-action Little Mermaid.
