“They were able to access her computer immediately.”

The insider added that the thieves have since made contact with Lohan, 27, DEMANDING money in exchange for the safe return of the laptop, which is said to contain naked pictures and private correspondence from famous pals, including Woody Allen and Lady Gaga.

Lohan’s frantic team has been desperately trying to "wipe the computer remotely, but they have not had any luck… yet."

The tweets at the center of the controversy have since been deleted.

The 27-year-old actress was in China where she was being honoured with a Sohu Fashion Achievement Award on Monday night.
