London, March 26 (IANS) Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan is planning to drop her surname. She wants to be known by her first name like – Oprah and Beyonce.
Lindsay’s mother Dina revealed the actress, who is facing trial for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Californian boutique, will drop her last name.
“Lindsay is dropping the Lohan and is just going by Lindsay. Plus, me and Ali (daughter) will be officially changing our last names back to my maiden name, Sullivan,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Dina as saying.
Lindsay was initially inspired to lose her surname as a result of a $100 million lawsuit she launched against trading company E*Trade last year and due to the continuing legal problems of her father Michael.
“So many of the greatest people in showbiz are known by just their first name. Look at Oprah and Beyonce. Now you can add Lindsay to that list. And it’s a way for them all to start over. No one in the family wants anything to do with Lindsay’s father anymore and that includes sharing a last name,” said a source.
