There’s a new report in OK! Magazine that can be summed up as follows: Lindsay Lohan is a broke, desperate mess who tried to fix her face with even more fillers that bloated and could cost her the role in Liz & Dick for which, incidentally, she’s yet to sign a contract.
So OK! Magazine is riding Lohan pretty hard with a triple whammy: cosmetic procedures, being in debt, and basically being jobless. The tabloid elaborates that Lohan’s Playboy shoot did little to help her finances. And the reason for the incorrigible partying and going out, logically, is to raise her profile in lieu of assured work coming her way.
Lindsay Lohan has a plum role waiting for in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick… but in her desperation to look the part of one of the 20th century’s great beauty icons, Lindsay submitted to cosmetic procedures that bloated and distorted her face. And nearly lost her the job.
An insider close to the Lohan camp reports that before flying from LA to NYC for several big meetings, including one with Lifetime executives, Lindsay “was overdone with fillers, Botox and God knows what else. Word is that she had so many shots she went way overboard. And when they took one look at her, they were repulsed and shocked.”
According to the insider, Team Lohan has explained to the execs that Lindsay had indeed undergone some aesthetic touching up. But that the actress “was not told by doctors that she wasn’t allowed to fly immediately afterward and, well, it was a catastrophe. In the course of Lindsay’s five-hour flight, the change in air pressure obviously did much damage and caused unexpected side effects.”
The Lifetime execs want to set conditions, says the insider. “I heard someone ask if Lindsay’s people would take a few photos of her with proof of date over the next few weeks, and that if her face was less swollen and back to normal, they’d use her,” the insider tells OK!
For Lindsay, there’s a lot more than her reputation riding on Liz & Dick: apparently, Lindsay is flat broke.
“She’s as poor as poor can be, doesn’t have two nickels to rub together and she owes more than $3 million in debt,” the insider tells OK!. “Lindsay’s recent Playboy magazine spread only paid a small pittance compared with what she owes,” adds the source, “and she’s desperately looking, pitching and offering to do absolutely anything to take her back to something like the lifestyle she had become accustomed to.” – via OK!

A few recent photos of Lohan for reference. She was last seen at The 2012 Coachella Music Festival on April 15 where she looked better than she had in years. Maybe she has lightened up on the fillers. Because there isn’t even any crack-bloating around her mouth, cheeks, or chin in the Coachella photos (well… there is far less). Compare that to Lohan’s facial bloat in court only three-weeks ago. And, yeah, her face has calmed down a little recently.
