Rumor says Lindsay Lohan converts to Islam. Did she?
Dina Lohan is denying that her daughter Lindsay has converted to Islam after word quickly spread on social media that the party-girl-turned-activist had made the life change.
The fodder about LiLo’s religion began after the starlet deleted all her Instagram posts and left one message that read “Alaikum salam” – Arabic for “Peace be unto you.”
Many Muslim social media users congratulated the star and welcomed her into the faith.
But Dina Lohan told Gossip Cop that even though the message sparked conversion rumors, her famous daughter is simply taking a break for social media and opted to post a message in Arabic. A rep for the actress also told Gossip Cop, “She has not converted [to Islam].”
The conversion rumors don’t come out of the blue. Lohan has shown an interest in Islam for some time. Back in April, her rep confirmed that she was exploring the religion after she told The Sun she was reading the Koran.
The actress, who was once best-known for her wild ways, has been visiting frequently Turkey as of late and spending time with refugees.
Members of the Muslim faith are welcoming Lindsay Lohan to Islam after the actress deleted her Instagram account and changed her bio on the social media site.
Over the weekend, Lohan got rid of every photo on her Instagram page, leaving nothing but her profile picture and a bio that now reads: ‘Alaikum salam.’
The Arabic greeting translates to ‘and unto you peace,’ and many took it mean that Lohan was converting to the Muslim faith.
‘Im so happy that lindsay lohan found Islam. may Allah guide her and bless her,’ wrote one young woman on Twitter.
Another posted on her account: ‘I heard that Lindsay Lohan converted to Islam? If its true, alhamdulillah. God has shown her the right path to now follow.’
Lohan has not revealed however if she is in fact converting to the faith, and a rep for the actress did not respond to a request for comment from NewsBukket.com
