Lindsay Lohan -- I Trust MJ's Bodyguard

4/10/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is pretty fired up about using Michael Jackson's former bodyguard, Alberto Alvarez ... telling friends she's definitely IMPRESSED by the way he handled the King of Pop.

Sources close to the starlet tell us Alvarez and Lindsay have a mutual friend ... who contacted Lindsay after seeing the pap crush that surrounded her last week at New York's JFK Airport.

We're told LiLo's friend wanted to to make sure she was safe -- so he recommended Alvarez as a bodyguard to help the actress out when she travels ... because he racked up tons of experience fending off crowds during his time with MJ.

So far, we're told Lindsay thinks Alberto does his job "expertly" ... and plans to continue using him in high paparazzi situations. Oh and the best part ... so far he's doing the work pro bono.

Hopefully he can be the one to make the 911 call that Lindsey is dead too.

Good riddance!    

He should strongly consider adding a chained wallet to his protectional wardrobe, as this ho would steal the coins off of a dead man's eyes.

Wasn't he the one who could not move MJ's body to the floor for cpr?
He is a big guy??? and MJ was a stick thin mess!!!

What good is a bodyguard when he could not move even a thin dead body?

Pro Bono??? Okay then, so the guy's an attention whore as well. But I gotta say, he's thinking with his marketing head. Every time Lindsay takes a sh*t, TMZ covers it. Now he'll be in all the pics too. Free publicity. Free advertising ("I used to protect MJ!")

"Expertly" my ass. Lindsay struck a deal with this dude: free face time and publicity for helping protect her from people who rightfully want to see her go away. *facepalm*

I'm not sure having a good bodyguard does her any favours. On the one hand they'll keep paparazzi etc. away but on the other could help isolate someone enough from society they grow a tad eccentric.

It's hypocritical with half these celebs because the're playing a publicity game and give paparazzi their locations to get their picture taken, and for cash.

Seems celebrities that get least attention from paparazzi are primarily famous for things other than having their picture taken (or maybe they've got better lawyers/handlers). Many celebrities seem to want to use the paparazzi when it suits them but then complain about intrusion in to their lives.

Which, obviously, there is intrusion in to their lives, but there's two side to that story and that people consume the pictures.

Unfortunately, us mere mortals don't have the luxury of bodyguards...

Who is she kidding. She makes sure the paps knows her every move. It's the only attention she gets and none of it good.

Free? It's not like he needs the publicity but okay. She does feed and water him right?

He's certainly big enough to double as a poll bearer at her funeral.

I've got May 31 in the death pool we have at work for you Lindsay, so take your time, but hurry up...

If she wouldn't call the press every time she moved, she wouldn't need a bodyguard. The delusional ho still thinks she's a "celebrity".
