Lindsay Lohan is seemingly so desperate for cash right now that she is attempting to demand half a million dollars in return for helping to promote an energy drinks brand in Dubai. The company are only offering $200, 000 but Lohan is insistent that she’s worth more. The troubled actress has been asked to front the campaign for Mr Pink’s Ginseng Energy Drink but even if she signs a deal, problems could still await her, as she could well have trouble getting into Dubai, with her criminal past still hanging over her head.

A source told RadarOnline “Lindsay wants $500k for an appearance in Dubai to promote Mr Pink’s Ginseng Energy Drink, which executives at the company are balking at. Mr. Pink is prepared to offer the actress $200k and would pay for all of LiLo’s travel expenses.” That trip might not be able to happen at all, though, unless Lohan can sort out her visa problems. Apparently she’s none to keen on her new lawyer Mark Heller and is unsure of his ability to sort out the travel arrangements for her.

Lohan’s money woes have been haunting her for some time now. Not only has she been forced to move in with her mum, Dina, but Charlie Sheen even lent her the money she needed to pay off her tax debts. We’re not sure that demanding such an inflated fee for a product that she’s entirely unsuited to promote is really the best way forwards, for Lohan though, no matter how bad her money worries are.
