The 'Catfish' Host Is Concerned Dina Lohan Is Getting Scammed
Dina Lohan revealed that she has been in a relationship for five years -- but has never met her so-called partner.
The mother of Lindsay Lohan is a cast member on the new season of Celebrity Big Brother and chatted about her new beau during the most recent episode of the reality series.
“I can’t wait to tell you about this guy,” she told co-stars Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton and Natalie Eva Marie.
“I’ve been talking to him for five years. Like, every day. A lot. I feel like I know him," she reportedly said.
Lohan added that while her long-distance boyfriend didn't have FaceTime, she feels very ~connected~ to him after their marathon telephone calls.
“It’s personal,” she said. “He’s real. I swear, it’s crazy. But I’m going to marry him. It’s really, really true. I talk to his ma!”
The statements set off catfish alarm bells for everyone who read them -- with fans concerned that Lohan's lover could be assuming a false identity to trick her into a relationship.
The expert on the art of catfishing and host of the MTV series Catfish -- Nev Schulman -- reached out to the Lohan matriarch.
"YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME," he wrote on Twitter. "Let's do this!"
Lohan added on camera during the Big Brother ep that she hadn't met the mystery man yet because he "lives in San Francisco" while Dina is based on the east coast of the States.
“It’s real!” Dina promised. “Some guys don’t just use iPhones!”.
Her current housemates Kandi and Tamar offered to accompany Lohan to California to meet her secretive boyfriend -- which is definitely a Big Brother spinoff we'd watch.
Fans are now petitioning for Dina's "catfish" to get an invite to the finale of Celebrity Big Brother on Twitter.
All we need is for Lindsay to make a few calls to MTV -- who are currently airing her Mykonos masterpiece, Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club -- to make this television dream come true.
