Lindsay Lohan Wants To Date Vladimir Putin?
Lindsay Lohan wants to date Vladimir Putin? That’s the outrageous claim in one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop, however, can expose the nonsense.
The bizarre allegation can be found in the pages of this week’s Star, which asks in a punny headline, “Lilo Putin The Ritz?” The accompanying story says, “In the wake of her messy split from Russian fiance Egor Tarabasov, insiders say that Lindsay Lohan is determined to trade up to Vladimir Putin!”
The magazine explains, “After Russia’s most popular talk show approached her for an interview, she gave them a list of demands that included not only 500,000 British pounds, a private jet and a penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton Moscow, but a meeting with the country’s tyrannical leader.” A so-called “source” speculates to the tabloid, “Maybe Lindsay thinks Putin will fall for her. She figures that even if it doesn’t work with Putin, he has a ton of billionaire friends she can sponge off of.”
And that’s all the evidence Star has to conclude Lohan is interested in Putin romantically. Of course, plenty of foreign celebrities want to meet President Obama. That doesn’t mean they want to date him.
But Star isn’t known for its logic. It’s known for sensationalism, which is exactly what the publication has printed here. And Gossip Cop is told the dating claim is, quite simply, “ridiculous.”
