Max George thinks he is a bad influence on Lindsay Lohan.
The Wanted singer - who has enjoyed a string of dates with the 26-year-old troubled starlet since they met late last month on the same night she allegedly punched fortune-teller Tiffany Mitchell for flirting with him and has since been charged with assault - says he is having fun with the actress but admits he is probably not the best person to give her advice.
The 24-year-old British heartthrob told USMagazine.com at the Jingle Ball in New York today (09.12.12): ''It's fun, she's a good girl. She can party nearly as hard as we can.
''I'm sure she's got people around her that know much better than we do. We're probably not the best influences.''
Max's bandmate Tom Parker also opened up about his budding friendship with the 'Liz & Dick' star, saying: ''We had one night on the bus, with her and a bunch of our friends, which was a good time.''
Meanwhile, Lindsay's financial situation is reportedly so bad, she is struggling to cover her $8,000 rent each month for her Beverly Hills mansion.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, the actress has been forced to ask her friends for loans and is doing whatever she can to make the payments.
Sources claim that she tried to get out of her lease but was threatened with a massive penalty if she broke her lease, which expires in February.
The flame-haired beauty - who is mainly based in New York - is said to be planning to lease a less expensive home, once her current one expires.
