Washington, August 30 : Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan, who was rumoured to be dating gal pal DJ Samantha Ronson, seems to have now fallen for Michael Phelps, the Olympic golden boy.
The actress is reported to be begging the US swimmer to take her out for a date.
However, the 23-year-old is not much interested in the offer, according to sources.
But the 'Mean Girls' star is leaving no stone unturned to land the opportunity.
"At first he thought it was a joke when she got in touch. But she's since been phoning and texting constantly. It's become a running joke in his camp. Lindsay has been trying to meet up with him," Contactmusic quoted a source, as telling Britain's Daily Mirror.
"They're both going to the MTV Video Music Awards next month so they'll be sure to see each other properly then.
"Phelps is certainly flattered by all the attention but it's not clear how seriously he's taking it all," the source added.
Meanwhile, Lindsay's dad Michael Lohan has launched a scathing attack on the actress' close friend Ronson, insisting that she's using his daughter to gain publicity.
Michael has accused DJ Ronson of using Lindsay to boost her fame after hearing the news that Ronson may write a ''tell-all'' book about her life.
