While it's debatable whether Lindsay Lohan gets her endless, (fist) in-your-face energy from energy drinks or something else, she's more than happy to help sell them. For, you know, half a million dollars.

A source told Radar Online that Lilo is demanding more money than most people make in five to 10 years for one stop in the Middle East to pretend to like ginseng.

“Lindsay wants $500K for an appearance in Dubai to promote Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Energy Drink, which executives at the company are balking at," the insider said. "Mr. Pink is prepared to offer the actress $200K and would pay for all of LiLo’s travel expenses.”

Even if Mr. Pink and La Lohan manage to agree on an exorbitantly overpriced fee, she still may not make it over there because, well, she's trouble.

“The trip might not happen at all because of Lindsay’s criminal past and current pending criminal charges," the source divulged. "Dubai has very strict laws about convicted criminals entering the country, and Lindsay is still on probation for a necklace theft case."

"Lindsay is very upset about her financial woes and doesn't trust her new lawyer, Mark Heller, to handle the Dubai travel problem.”

Let's be real, we wouldn't trust Heller to handle any problems more complicated than 2+2.

In addition to her money woes -- she needs this gig because she's still in a slew of debt -- Lohan is facing yet another dude denying any involvement with her.

Brooklyn DJ Julian Cavin is pulling a Max George and insisting that he and Lilo are just pals, despite being caught making out and grinding with her already.

Lohan and Cavin were seen canoodling in New York City on Sunday (Feb. 17), but he insists it's not a thing.

"Lindsay and I are just friends. We are not dating ... she comes to a bunch of my DJ gigs. Sunday she came and was hanging in the booth."

Translation? "We're banging, but I don't want to admit it because it's Lindsay Lohan."

But that's not all she did in the booth. “I saw them holding hands,” a spy told The New York Post, “and at times she would rest her head on his shoulder and just act really affectionate.”
