Lindsay Lohan deleted every post on Instagram and changed the bio to an Arabic phrase.
Lohan was one of several celebrities dragged through the digital media blitz a decade ago when the paparazzi era was at its peak, and it manifested in a way no one could have predicted. After seemingly (and finally) getting a grip on her sobriety, Lohan moved out of the U.S. to focus on business ventures, love and her ever-expanding spirituality.
It wasn't explicitly obvious how serious Lohan was taking her newfound life until she started speaking in a Turkish(?) accent while explaining how her philanthropic work can inspire global change.
Now she's taking things one step further by ridding herself of an online presence. Over the weeknd, Lohan removed every post on Instagram and changed her bio to read “Alaikum salam,” an Arabic saying which translates to “Peace be unto you.”
She also deleted evert Tweet off Twitter.
Fans believed this was her way of announcing she had converted to Islam, but reps for the singer/actress tell GossipCop that is not true. “She has not converted [to Islam],” they said.
As PopCrush points out, in 2015, Lohan was spotted holding the Quran, the religious text of Islam. “The Quran opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am,” Lohan told Turkish TV station Habertürk TV. “They crucified me for it in America. They made me seem like Satan. I was a bad person for holding that Quran.”
She added: “I was so happy to leave [America] and go back to London after that, because I felt so unsafe in my own country.”
