Cash-strapped Lindsay Lohan is seeking a staggering half million dollars for a energy drink promotional appearance in Dubai, but her latest legal woes could derail the planned trip, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
“Lindsay wants $500k for an appearance in Dubai to promote Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Energy Drink, which executives at the company are balking at. Mr. Pink is prepared to offer the actress $200k, and would pay for all of LiLo’s travel expenses,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“However, the trip might not happen at all because of Lindsay’s criminal past and current pending criminal charges. Dubai has very strict laws about convicted criminals entering the country, and Lindsay is still on probation for a necklace theft case. Lindsay is very upset about her financial woes and doesn’t trust her new lawyer, Mark Heller, to handle the Dubai travel problem,” the insider added.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the troubled starlet, 26, was forced to move from Los Angeles, back to New York, because she could no longer afford to pay the $8k 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 previously revealed. “Lindsay is flat-out broke and can’t even afford to rent a two-bedroom apartment in North Hollywood.”
Living at home with Mama Lohan was cramping Lindsay’s hard partying lifestyle, and she has since been staying at a friend’s apartment in New York City.
Dina’s financial problems have been well-chronicled throughout the years, as the show biz parent, who’s reportedly more than $1 million in the red, was previously on the brink of foreclosure both last year and in 2005.
The mother and daughter clashed last fall over a $40,000 loan LiLo gave Dina to dodge the bank repossessing the home.
The energy drink appearance, “simply must happen for Lindsay. She is absolutely desperate for the cash. The shocking this is that she will burn through that money just as quickly as she gets paid,” the insider said.
