A singer-songwriter from Maine who's filming a reality show with Lindsay Lohan is getting his 15 minutes of fame, and then some.

Jeremy Greene, a Waterville native, says he's being hounded by press calls after Life & Style magazine reported that Lohan referred to Greene as her "new boyfriend."

"It's good and it's bad," Greene told the Morning Sentinel newspaper. "It's like the gift and the curse."

The 25-year-old Greene, who was seen with Lohan in New York, received several text messages from her while being interviewed by the paper. He avoided questions on whether he and Lohan are dating -- "we're just friends" -- and says people will have to watch the show to see if there are any sparks.

Lohan's mother, Dina, contacted Greene last fall, he said. They did some initial shootings for the show and he and the Lohan family hit it off.

For the reality show, Greene and the Lohan family will live on the top floor of the Palms Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, where there's a swimming pool and a full music recording studio, among other things.

As for the media attention, it kicked into high gear on Monday when Greene was seen with Lohan at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City.

Will he ever bring Lindsay to Maine?

"I told her we have good lobster," he said. "You never know."
