Max George doesn't want to date Lindsay Lohan.

The 'Liz & Dick' actress is besotted with The Wanted singer, even allegedly punching a woman he was talking to in a New York bar, but Max insists he is not interested in her.

After Lindsay appeared backstage at the Jingle Ball in Philadelphia on Wednesday (05.12.12), where The Wanted performed, a friend of Max told gossip website TMZ that Max didn't arrange for her to be there and has no plans to date her.

However, Max has previously called Lindsay, 26, a ''top girl'' and defended her from the furore surrounding the scuffle between the actress and Tiffany Mitchell.

The 'Glad You Came' singer said: ''We were just out and there was a bit of trouble with someone in the club. But it got blown out of proportion to be honest.''

He also revealed he would love to hang out with Lindsay again.

He said: ''She's cool. She was a top girl. She's good fun. She's a nice girl.''

Lindsay received support from Max's bandmate Jay McGuinness, who was spotted wearing a homemade 'Free Lindsay' t-shirt on stage during the group's concert in New York just hours after she was charged with assaulting Tiffany.
