What happened to Lindsay Lohan? Everyone knows about her troubled past, including multiple arrests for DUI, several failed stints in rehab, and stories about how difficult she was to work with on movie and television sets. But what about Lindsay Lohan today? Now that she is done with her tumultuous twenties, has she finally turned a corner and cleaned up her act?
The answer to that question is unfortunately not so simple. She did leave Hollywood for London in 2016, and has happily remained out of the paparazzi spotlight (and out of court). She is involved in several different promising business ventures — like the entirely relatable ambition of designing her own island off the coast of Dubai. But peppered in with the return of a promising young talent also come a few crazy Lindsay Lohan stories, including a social media tirade that hearkened the end of her engagement to a Russian business heir.
Check out all the positive and the negative things that Lindsay Lohan has been up to the past few years.
Lohan Defended Harvey WeinsteinVideo: YouTube
During the fall of 2017, Harvey Weinstein became the most hated man in Hollywood. Every day, it seemed that a different actress was coming out to share their #MeToo experience of sexual assault at the hands of the disgraced film producer. Almost no one came to defend him publicly, except Lindsay Lohan.
Lohan said via her Instagram stories: "I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on." She added, "He’s never harmed me or did anything to me – we’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop – I think it’s wrong. So stand up."
The Freaky Friday actress also offered up some advice to Weinstein's wife Georgina (who later filed for divorce) suggesting that she needs to "take a stand a be there for her husband." Lohan later deleted the pro-Weinstein messages.

In January 2018, Lohan sat down for an interview with Wendy Williams. Lohan discussed her plans with the talk show host to design an island off the coast of Dubai. She plans to call the island, appropriately, Lohan Island.
"I’m discussing designing an island in Dubai," Lohan said. "I have a lot of little projects there because I like to keep busy. So, when I’m finished filming [British sitcom] Sick Note I can go back to Dubai, start the lipstick, discuss that and then design this island — Lohan Island."

In January 2017, Lindsay Lohan met with the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, in Istanbul to discuss the struggle of Syrian refugees. Also in attendance were First Lady Emine Erdoğan, and Syrian refugee Bana Alabed.
Lohan wrote on her Instagram account: "What a dream it is for Mr. President Erdoğan and The First Lady to invite me to their home. Their efforts in helping Syrian Refugees is truly inspiring, #peace starts now."
The actress also added: "This is why I underlined the statement ‘the world is bigger than five.’ Five big nations made promises but they did not keep them. There are some who are afraid to come Turkey due to the disinformation about it but I feel very much at ease."
Lohan Has Acquired A Fun New AccentPhoto: Lindsay Lohan / Facebook
Who knew that Lindsay Lohan had such a knack for learning languages? The New York born and raised model-turned-actress started to publicly speak to reporters in Athens, Greece with a noticeably different accent in 2016.
"It's a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn," she explained. "I've been learning different languages since I was a child. I'm fluent in English and French, can understand Russian and am learning Turkish, Italian and Arabic."
No one could pinpoint the exact origin of the accent, which sounded like a plethora of different countries. Lohan is having fun with the attention that her new accent is generating. She took to her Twitter account in response to the Daily Mail article about her accent.
