Actress Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been spending time with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) and has even been given a credit card by MBS as a gift. MBS has faced controversy in recent years, including accusations of imprisoning members of his own family and ordering the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as well as criticism for his kingdom’s strict and repressive Muslim ideology and decision to allow women to drive
However, Lohan’s father has stated that the relationship between MBS and Lindsay is “platonic and respectful” and that Lindsay has been doing humanitarian work in the Middle East, particularly with Syrian refugees. He also said that he believes Lindsay is safe in MBS’s company and that the Crown Prince is a good person. Lohan has been spending a significant amount of time in Dubai, where she is popular, and has met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and visited a refugee camp as part of a campaign to raise awareness about the plight of Syrian refugees.
