Who is financier Bader Shammas?
Far from the star-studded, red-carpeted world of acting and show business that Lohan has been in since her early childhood, Shammas is firmly entrenched in the financial industry.
The Tampa Bay Times reported that his LinkedIn profile listed his education at the University of South Florida, followed by the University of Tampa. The USF Alumni Association posted its congratulations to the 2010 graduate on Twitter following his engagement to the Mean Girls actor.
Bader Shammas is a self-made financier who made his fortune through a combination of hard work, determination, and smart business decisions. He began his career in the finance industry, working for a number of reputable firms before branching out on his own.
In the early 2000s, Shammas founded his own investment firm, which focused on providing strategic advice and capital to businesses in the Middle East and North Africa. Through this venture, he was able to build a strong reputation as a savvy investor and business leader, earning him a loyal following of clients and investors.
How did Lindsay Lohan meet Bader Shammas?
Lohan has reportedly lived in Dubai for the past four years or so. She likely met Shammas at some point after 2018. As HITC.com reported, she has also lived in Greece in the past, and she even established the Lohan Beach House Club in Mykonos, a hot tourist location in Greece.
In November 2021, Lohan announced her engagement to the Emirati financier via her social media channels. Her Instagram post at that time read, “My love. My life. My family. My future.” Naturally, a selection of photos of the happy couple was included along with that engagement announcement, including displays of her ring.
Page Six reported that the square-shaped diamond on Lohan’s ring could be about six carats. The COO of Rare Carat estimated its value at around $250,000.
As People reported, the couple were married sometime in July, which is when Lohan first referred to Shammas as her husband in a public manner. “I am the luckiest woman in the world... I am stunned that you are my husband. My life and my everything.”
How does Shammas’s net worth compare to wife Lindsay Lohan’s net worth?
Given Lohan’s decades in the public eye, one might wonder how her bank accounts are looking these days. She was a Hollywood darling as a child and teen, starring in popular films such as the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap, 2003’s Freaky Friday, and 2004’s Mean Girls. She also has modeled and released musical albums.
Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Lohan earned about $28 million in film salaries. However, thanks to multiple DUIs, alcohol rehabilitation, and other issues, Lohan was nearing bankruptcy in 2011 and had $233,000 seized by the IRS for back taxes. Her current net worth is estimated at just $2 million.
