Lindsay Lohan Paid $100K To Attend Brunei Prince's New Year's Bash
While Lindsay Lohan was telling the masses that she planned to have a quiet New Year’s Eve, she actually had a paying gig in the works. Prince Azim of Brunei reportedly offered to pay Lohan $100,000 to attend his infamous New Year’s Eve gala. Along with the cash, Azim also flew Lohan and her mom, Dina Lohan, to London before putting them up in a luxurious suite in the Dorchester, according to the New York Daily News.
The Lohans were not the only ones who benefitted from Prince Azim’s fondness for celebrity guests. Lionel Richie reportedly received $250,000 for his presence at the party, while Pamela Anderson took home $75,000. At his 30th birthday party over the summer, Azim had such stars as Mariah Carey, Chace Crawford and Marissa Tomei celebrate the milestone with him.
Azim’s New Year’s Eve festivities were held at the 10,300-square-foot ballroom at the Dorchester. “He rents the ballroom and does this for his amusement. He rents the ballroom and pays stars to show up. Lindsay went because she’s that desperate for a paycheck," said a source.
Lohan’s $100,000 dollar paycheck is not all she picked up in London. She was also spotted leaving Nozomi restaurant with former boyfriend and fitness trainer, Josh Chunn, according to the Daily Mail.
