Lohan met Indrani, also known as Julia I. Pal-Chaudhuri, on a photo shoot last autumn and the two have grown very close since.
"We have been spending a lot of time together. I have never had a relationship with a woman before, but Lindsay is just somebody who I find fascinating, gorgeous and extremely smart, as well as super-hot,” said Indrani.
“Lindsay gets a lot of bad press, but she's a really strong, creative woman and is trying really hard to get her life in a good, positive place."
The love birds have been spotted out on a series of dates in Los Angeles and they recently shacked up at Lohan’s hotel.
Markus Klinko, Indrani’s photography partner, said "Lindsay and Indrani have been seeing each other since we shot her last fall. I've seen them on dates, I have seen them making out.
“Indrani is a good influence on Lindsay. She is the opposite of a party girl - a Princeton graduate, she's into art and is a philanthropist - not what you'd expect the typical girl for Lindsay to go out with.
"When they are together, they talk about art and the deeper meaning in life.”
Perhaps Indrani can stop Lindsay’s wayward ways and get her back on the straight and narrow.
