Lindsay Lohan was not offered the role of a teenager’s mom in a new project, despite a made-up report from one particularly unreliable tabloid. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim.

The fake news comes from Star, which blares in a headline, “Lindsay’s Insulting Offer!” In the accompanying article, the tabloid contends the actress was “mortified” after she was asked to play a teen’s mom in a suspiciously unspecified project. A so-called “source” claims to the outlet that Lohan, who doesn’t usually “seem too picky about her parts” in “box-office turkeys,” assumed the role “would involve prosthetics or aging makeup, but then she realized that wasn’t the plan and was mortified.”

“Producers really thought she looked old enough to play a 40-something mom,” alleges the magazine’s supposed snitch. From there, the publication goes on to mock Lohan’s “fight with Father Time.” The tabloid maintains Lohan has tried to “undo the effects of her party-heavy ways” by “undergoing botox and fillers,” but notes, “ironically, the actress recently espoused growing old gracefully on her Instagram page, urging fans to ‘analyze your future & see the wrinkles.'”

Star snarkily adds, “Just not on the big screen…” The mean-spirited claims, however, have no merit. From start to finish, the magazine tellingly fails to provide any specific details about the purported project, leading Gossip Cop to wonder if such a gig really existed. After investigating the vague claims, we weren’t surprised when a rep for Lohan told us they “never heard” of this supposed role. The spokesperson insisted the tale is “completely false.”

Of course, this is not the first time Gossip Cop has called out the tabloid for publishing untrue stories about the actress. In September, we corrected the outlet for falsely alleging Lohan wanted to date Vladimir Putin. And shortly before that bogus report, we busted the publication for wrongly claiming Lohan was bleaching her hands to remove stains from years of smoking cigarettes. Much like those phony stories, this latest one is equally untrue.
