LINDSAY Lohan is set to be paid $2 million by Oprah Winfrey.

The 27-year-old actress has allegedly been negotiating the lucrative deal for the past four months, managing to wrangle the mammoth sum for spilling her secrets in an eight-part documentary for Oprah's OWN network.

According to TMZ.com, when Lindsay films the TV specials - after she completes her court ordered 90-day stint in rehab next month - she will be given two assistants to wait on her hand and foot as well as a personal stylist to ensure she looks her best on set.

The series will focus on the 'Mean Girls' star's past struggles with addictions and fame, as well as her film career and her hopes for the future.

The actress is said to have signed the deal with Oprah at the Betty Ford Clinic last month - from which she has subsequently been transferring from - even before she was properly on the road to recovery.

Lindsay's mother Dina is thrilled her daughter is set to follow in the footsteps of Lance Armstrong and Rihanna by being given a chance to tell Oprah her story.

She recently gushed: "Oh, it's fantastic. If anyone is going to help mentor you, it's going to be Oprah."
