Washington: Lindsay Lohan reportedly wants half a million dollars to promote Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Energy Drink at an upcoming event in Dubai, after she turned down an initial offer of 200,000 dollars.

A source said that the executives at the company have balked at the idea of shelling 500,000 dollars and have offered 200,000 dollars to the troubled star as well as paying for her travel expenses, Radar Online reported.

The source asserted that the trip might not even happen as Dubai has very strict laws about convicted criminals entering the country, and the 26-year-old actress is still on probation for a necklace theft case.

The energy drink appearance, simply must happen for Lohan as she is absolutely desperate for the cash, the insider said.
