Following speculations on a tabloid suggesting that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman, and former Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan are romantically involved, Lohan’s father defended his daughter and denied the claims.
Michael Lohan told Fox news, “They are just friends, Lindsay has a lot of powerful friends in the Middle East, because she is huge out there. Lindsay met MBS because of the work she has been doing in the Middle East. She is working to help people in the region, particularly refugees.”
He added, “Nobody writes about the good work Lindsay does in Syria, they just want to hear the bad stuff. She has a platonic and respectful relationship with MBS, nothing more."
Lindsay has connections with many Middle Eastern authoritarian figures, including the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who she was photographed with in 2017 when she visited a refugee camp.
