Lindsay Lohan’s desperate grab for cash

LINDSAY Lohan may have ever so slightly overestimated the value of her endorsement.

A rep for the Mean Girls star went trawling for deals on a Facebook group for publicists and marketers on Tuesday, writing that interested parties should "reach out if you rep a brand that is interested in endorsement opportunities with Lindsay."

They also rather grandly announced that "acceptable brands include: fashion, beauty, car, lifestyle, CPG, fitness/lifestyle, food/drinks, entertainment/media, tech. Must have a substantial budget."

The response was, er, underwhelming.

The post got three responses: one alerting a New York Postreporter to the gauche cash grab, and two from industry types asking for a "ballpark" on what "substantial" means.

Since demand for her acting services took a nosedive circa 2010 - and since struggling through some legal troubles - Lohan has reinvented herself as a businesswoman and a (bizarro) philanthropist.

She put her name on Lohan Nightclub in Athens in 2016, and opened the Lohan Beach House in Mykonos this summer, where she has filmed an MTV docuseries. A source described it to Page Six as "a cooler, hipper, edgier Vanderpump Rules."

She also claims to have plans to launch an island resort in Dubai called "Lindsayland."

Other business endeavours include an appearance in Diesel's "Hate Couture" campaign and her work as a spokeswoman for Lawyer.com.

"When Lawyer.com first reached out to me, I was confused and a little scared because I thought I was in trouble," she said in an ad.

"Lawyer.com is just about helping people. From getting a DUI - let's not forget I got one, or two or three . . . "

Lohan was punched in September while trying to take a child - whom she mistakenly believed was being trafficked - away from its family.

The rep for Lohan did not respond to a request for comment.
