Everyone thought troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was still pining away for her former lover, DJ Samantha Ronson. But LiLo fooled everyone. According to online reports, she's been quietly dating a 36-year-old Cougar, and things are heating up between them.

From X17 via NY Post:

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been dating 36-year-old photographer and reality television star Indrani, who worked with the 23-year old starlet on a photo shoot last fall.

Indrani, who is also known as Julia I. Pal-Chaudhuri works with photographer Markus Klinko, who told the NY Post, "Lindsay and Indrani have been seeing each other since we shot her last fall. I've seen them on dates, I have seen them making out. Indrani is a good influence on Lindsay. She is the opposite of a party girl -- a Princeton graduate, she's into art and is a philanthropist -- not what you'd expect the typical girl for Lindsay to go out with. When they are together, they talk about art and the deeper meaning in life."

The two have been on several dates in Los Angeles and Indriani recently spent the night at Lindsay's hotel. Indrani reportedly told the Post, "We have been spending a lot of time together. I have never had a relationship with a woman before, but Lindsay is just somebody who I find fascinating, gorgeous and extremely smart, as well as super-hot. Lindsay gets a lot of bad press, but she's a really strong, creative woman and is trying really hard to get her life in a good, positive place."
