Lohan began her career in the mid-90s as an adorable child star. Her hit movie The Parent Trap earned Lohan praise for her acting ability and as she grew into a teenager she found plenty of opportunities to stay in the spotlight. As she started appearing in movies such as Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, Lohan’s private life became highly publicized. Her first serious boyfriend was boy-bander Aaron Carter, followed by That ’70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama in 2004. 

Following her breakup with Valderrama, Lohan dated Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos, who had previously dated socialite Paris Hilton. DJ Samantha Ronson was one of Lohan’s longest relationships, and the pair were seen together frequently all throughout 2008 and 2009. After Ronson and Lohan split, Lohan took an extended break from the spotlight in the United States and found love with a Russian businessman named Egor Tarabosov. They dated from 2016 through 2017 but it ended badly, with Lohan later claiming that her fiance had abused her

Lindsay Lohan has adopted Middle Eastern culture

For the past several years, following her breakup from Tarabosov, Lohan has been living abroad. Her interest in Middle Eastern apparel and culture led many fans to believe that Lohan converted to Islam. While Lohan has never officially confirmed conversion to Islam, she did speak out about her interest in learning more about the culture and said that the Quran has opened doors for her to find “another true meaning.”

The actress has made her new home in the country of Dubai and although she has reappeared occasionally for acting projects, including her short-lived reality series, Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, she seems to enjoy her more private existence away from the spotlight. Still, reports surfaced recently that could land Lohan in a whole new, more serious controversy.

Is Lindsay Lohan dating Mohammad bin Salman?

Page Six recently reported that Lohan is getting close with Mohammad bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. According to their source, Lohan is being actively courted by the prince, and is enjoying a succession of gifts from him, including a credit card and trips in his private jet. The source also states that Lohan and bin Salman have been texting each other, and that bin Salman is the latest in a string of Middle Eastern dignitaries who would love to have Lohan on their arm. While reportedly, Lohan hasn’t known the prince for long, if the relationship is true, it could cause some serious problems with Lohan’s image. 

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince has been linked to the 2018 murder of a Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, among a number of other human rights violations. The Human Rights Watch even claims that bin Salman has indirectly caused the world’s worst humanitarian crisis through his recent blockades. 

While Lohan herself hasn’t spoken out about the rumor, if it is true, the redheaded actress should brace herself for some major backlash — both among her fans in the United States and abroad.
