Lindsay Lohan was seen carrying a leather-bound copy of the Koran on her first day of community service - prompting speculation that she'd converted to Islam.
However, this might not be the case.
Despite reading the Muslim text, she is apparently not "fully converting" to Islam.
A spokesperson for Lohan told The Independent: "To my knowledge she is not considering fully converting to Islam, but I know she has been taking a keen interest in the Arabic culture of late."

5/10 Lindsay Lohan
Imagine Lindsay Lohan's face when she was happily swiping through Tinder one day and came across her own brother? “Look who I just found on @tinderapp ... hey bro,” she tweeted.
6/10 Chris Pine
Whether he's actually on there RIGHT NOW, at this VERY MOMENT, remains unclear. But Chris Pine did tell Cosmopolitan recently: “I have a couple of buddies who use Tinder. Whatever eases the process is great, since it can be awkward or uncomfortable meeting someone.”
7/10 Lily Allen
Is very much married to a builder. But that hasn't stopped her enjoying the contagious swipe action in her spare time. “Just discovered tinder,” the singer wrote on Twitter. “*waves goodbye to life*”

What do you mean you wouldn't want to date pop music's favourite Fraggle, Ed Sheeran? Well you can't. "I got offered the first verified Tinder account," he admitted. However, he added: "I did say no. I haven't got time to go on loads of dates." He wants to play music, or something. No idea.
9/10 Britney Spears
Jimmy Fallon added the singer to the app himself in September 2014 after she split up from David Lucado. Whether she used it or not...
10/10 Samuel Preston
OK, so we've swung down market somewhat. See also Calum Best and the entire cast of Made In Chelsea. They're all on there. Happy swiping.
They added that Lohan had upcoming projects in the Middle East and was keen to learn the language.
"She also spent some time in Dubai earlier this year and became interested in their way of life," the spokesperson said.
Lohan was recently mocked for posting a picture to Instagram mistaking the Arabic words "you're a donkey" for "I'm beautiful".
She later explained that the slip-up was an "inside joke" with a friend while she was learning the language, and posts pictures of her efforts to improve her Arabic.
Lohan was raised a Catholic but is reported to have previously dabbled in Scientology and Kabbalah.
She has described herself as a "very spiritual person" to Oprah Winfrey, and added that she had "become more spiritual as time has gone on."
"I'm really in touch, whether it's prayer or meditation," she said. "There are so many powers greater than me in the world. I've been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift to share with other people.'
She was seen wearing the red string bracelet of Kabbalah, and Vanity Fair once named her as a prospective Scientologist bride for Tom Cruise in 2012.
However, Lohan denied any links to the story.
I just want everyone & @TomCruise to know, that I have/had NO part in the VF story.. Nor has anyone in my life, personal and work related.Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) September 5, 2012
High-profile converts to Islam include Cat Stevens, Jemima Goldsmith and Mike Tyson.
Lohan has had a difficult few years involving spells in jail and rehab and a well-documented struggle with alcohol.
