Since Lindsay Lohan doesn't get much acting work -- and following the profile piece about her time on set of 'The Canyons,' she probably won't -- she had to find some way to make cash.

And according to one tabloid (and possibly her father), it's by being arm candy for rich dudes.

Of course, father knows best. Michael Lohan, who pimps his daughter out for press and attention on the regular, allegedly told Star (via Radar Online), “She is getting paid to date rich men. Dina (Lindsay’s mother) is pimping her out -- it’s disgusting!”

Right. We're sure daddy issues have nothing to do with any of Lindsay's life decisions.

"The dates last for days, and the guys pay for everything – hotel, travel costs, food, whatever – as well as jewelry and other gifts,” another source revealed. (That may explain the random dude with all the presents for Lohan in that New York Times article.)

So far, no one is saying whether or not Lindsay is actually sleeping with these guys, but she's keeping them company. They cited her recent London partying gig with Brunei's Prince Azim as one of those instances, but in fairness, other celebs, including Lionel Richie, have also been paid to go to this dude's soirees.

Another client? Painter Domingo Zapata. “Domingo let Lindsay live in his penthouse at the Bowery Hotel in NYC for free and at his L.A. pad at Chateau Marmont [for months],” a source said. “They’re both super swanky. No way Lindsay could've afforded either of them for such long periods of time on her own.”

But hold on. Now Daddy Lohan is claiming he never said what the Star is attributing to him. He told TMZ, "By absolutely NO MEANS did I ever make such a statement ... EVER!"

"Sure, Lindsay and [other celebs] make personal appearances and get paid for it! Sure, she and they get paid to go to birthday parties and other occasions!" he added. "But for sex? Are you kidding me? I would never say that because she would NEVER do that and it NEVER happened!"

In fairness, he talks to the tabloids so often that maybe Star thought they could just slip this one through without him noticing. Or maybe he really did say it. Or maybe the check he got for saying it didn't clear and he's exacting revenge. Who really knows with this guy.

Regardless, it kinda makes you wonder if there's a reason she never officially thanked Charlie Sheen for his charity. Perhaps she thought she earned it.
