Washington: Lindsay Lohan is apparently using late Michael Jackson`s former bodyguard, Alberto Alvarez, for fending off crowds.

And the ‘Mean Girls’ star is impressed by the way he handled the King of Pop.

Sources close to the starlet said Alvarez and Lohan have a mutual friend who contacted the star after seeing the pap crush that surrounded her last week at New York``s JFK Airport.

Lohan’s friend wanted to make sure she was safe so he recommended Alvarez as a bodyguard to help the actress out when she travels, reports TMZ.

So far, Lohan thinks Alvarez does his job `expertly` and is planning to continue using him in high paparazzi situations.
