Earlier today (16th Jan) there were rumours that Lindsay Lohan's Dad, Michael Lohan, had accused her of being an escort. The Sun claims that a US magazine called 'Star' quoted Michael saying: "She is getting paid to date rich men, Dina is pimping her out - it's disgusting!" But in a directly contradictory account, he tells TMZ that he absolutely said no such thing.

"Sure, Lindsay and [other celebs] make personal appearances and get paid for it!" He said, "Sure, she and they get paid to go to birthday parties and other occasions! But for sex? Are you kidding me?... I would never say that because she would never do that and it never happened!"

Rumours of her being an escort have been bandied about increasingly ever since it was speculated that she came to London for a low-key quiet NYE on the payroll of "One alleged client is the third in line for the throne of Brunei," according to the Mail. 

She certainly has reason to be doing more of the paid-appearance that celebs tend to loathe doing. She's in some serious financial problems at the moment, owing an undisclosed amount in tax (Charlie sheen gave her $100k which apparently didn't even scratch the surface), as well as other debts for rent or hotel bills. She truly is in a bit of a pickle, but at least she's not a 'hooker'.
