Lohan, 23, who previously dated deejay Samantha Ronson, has been secretly seeing Indrani, 36 -- half of the respected lens duo of Markus Klinko and Indrani -- since the women worked together on a photo shoot last fall.Emphasis added because goldarnit that is just so mean and passive-aggressive.
Indrani told The Post, "We have been spending a lot of time together. I have never had a relationship with a woman before, but Lindsay is just somebody who I find fascinating, gorgeous and extremely smart, as well as super-hot.
"Lindsay gets a lot of bad press, but she's a really strong, creative woman and is trying really hard to get her life in a good, positive place."
Klinko said the pair are good for each other.
"Lindsay and Indrani have been seeing each other since we shot her last fall," he said. "I've seen them on dates, I have seen them making out . . . Indrani is a good influence on Lindsay. She is the opposite of a party girl -- a Princeton graduate, she's into art and is a philanthropist -- not what you'd expect the typical girl for Lindsay to go out with.
"When they are together, they talk about art and the deeper meaning in life."
Indrani, the alleged cougar, and her business/performance partner Markus Klinko, both seem to be stating unequivocally that Indrani and Ms. Lohan are an item. Even though Indrani is, like, the total opposite of what you'd expect in a partner for Ms. Lohan. A Princeton graduate and a philanthropist.
And the photo accompanying the story is just so adorable! I mean, they make such a great couple!
It kinda reminds me of my high school prom photo. (The theme was "Phantom of the Opera"!)
So, considering just how positive an influence is Indrani, Ms. Lohan must be lucky to have her, and grateful besides.
When asked about a report that she's dating a 36-year-old photographer named Indrani, the actress, 23, tells UsMagazine.com, "No, no, no... In NO way am I dating her."That seems fairly unequivocal in itself. It's even more unequivocal (or, if you prefer, less equivocal) than the statements attributed to Indrani and Mr. Klinko in the New York Post story.
When she answered UsMagazine.com, did she really answer "NO" in all caps? After everything Ms. Lohan has been through and done, is the thought of having such an extremely attractive Princeton graduate as a lesbian lover really that abhorrent to her?
But why would Indrani and her business partner Mr. Klinko make up such a story? It's not like she's going to be appearing on a reality show or anything...
Indrani -- who will be star in a Bravo show called Double Exposure premiering June 15 -- snapped Lohan at a photoshoot last fall.Oh, she has a new television show starting in less than a month. So maybe this was just a cynical attempt to get her name on wesmirch.
Or maybe they really are in love, and Ms. Lohan is just, um, so happy that she can't bear to actually admit how happy she is. Or maybe she objects to the New York Post's use of the word "cougar." Can we please stop using that word, already? For crying out loud that has got to be one of the longest-lived bogus trends of all time.
And the woman is only thirty-freaking-six. "Cougars" don't become "cougars" until they're in their late 40s, right?
Cougars can't be 36. 36 is super young. It's practically the new 25.
Anyway, it appears that neither Ms. Lohan nor Indrani can be trusted on this. So, let's forget the whole thing, shall we?
