We define two new lifetime models called the odd log-logistic Lindley (OLL-L) and odd log-logistic Lindley Poisson (OLL-LP) distributions with various hazard rate shapes such as increasing, decreasing, upside-down bathtub, and bathtub. Various structural properties are derived. Certain characterizations of OLL-L distribution are presented. The maximum likelihood estimators of the unknown parameters are obtained. We propose a flexible cure rate survival model by assuming that the number of competing causes of the event of interest has a Poisson distribution and the time to event has an OLL-L distribution. The applicability of the new models is illustrated by means real datasets.
