lindsay-lohan-amfar1

isn’t the star she once was. Her fame has dropped considerably and she’s now basically broke living in a friend’s penthouse in New York. The last movie she shot with porn star James Deen, The Canyons, didn’t even get into Sundance because they didn’t want the type of publicity Lindsay brings. She also owes the IRS money and has been begging friends for loans.

With all that you’d expect Lindsay to happily accept $200k to promote Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Energy Drink in Dubai where her travel expenses would have been covered. But no. Lindsay Lohan is delusional. She still thinks she’s famous and that half a million is a fair rate to just show up and party in Dubai.

However, that’s not happening because people aren’t idiots.

“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,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.

That and Lindsay might not even be able to get into the country due to her pending criminal charges.

An insider says she’s “desperate for the cash” and that “the shocking thing is that she will burn through that money just as quickly as she gets paid.” That is to say, Mr. Pink has the upper hand here. If I were them, I’d keep lowering the fee until she gets nervous and agrees.

“You want $500k? How about $150k?” Wait, that’s not how negotiations work. “$100k.” You’re supposed to go higher! “$50k.” Okay, okay, fine. At least throw in a case of energy drinks. “$25k.” Ahhhh!
