So we ALL KNEW that Lindsay Lohan was most likely lying when she said that pAArtying wasn't on her London New Year's Eve agenda, and of course, she proved us right when she was spotted out looking worse for wear with her own enabling mother Deviant Dina!
However, she TOTALLY has a legitimate excuse for going back on her word, you guys!
Turns out, the troubled, financially strapped starlet had a WORK ENGAGEMENT…with His Royal Highness Prince Haji 'Abdul' Azim of Brunei!
That's right, the third in line to succeed his country's throne reportedly paid $100,000 in cash to ring in 2013 with Lindsay Lohan!
But don't worry! She still was bold-face LYING when she announced her plans to stay in…as sources close to her reveal this little dalliance has been long secured in her schedule!
“Prince Azim not only flew her out; he put her up in a beautiful suite in the Dorchester for the weekend and following the party. Her mom, Dina, is also in London with her at the hotel and attended the party. He rents the ballroom and does this for his amusement. He rents the ballroom and pays stars to show up. Lindsay went because she’s that desperate for a paycheck.”
Of course, while the majority of that money should be going to whatever debt she still has to pay off to Uncle Sam and her impending court fees, that didn't stop our LiLo from shopping up a storm across the pond!
Her father, Michael, obviously also seems to share that sentiment, as he comments:
“Now she’s getting paid for dates?”
Hey! Beggers can't be choosers, Michael!
You should know that better than anyone!
We just certainly hope that's ALL the prince was paying her for!
