Lindsay Lohan opens up about Samantha Ronson
Now that actress Lindsay Lohan and celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson are broken up, the “Mean Girls” star seems to be talking more candidly about her relationship with Ronson than when the two women were going out.
In an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, the 22-year-old Lohan told the chat show host that she and Ronson are still friends, even though after their breakup early this month members of Ronson’s family inquired about obtaining a restraining order against the actress. Lohan told DeGeneres that she did not know the breakup was coming.
“I had no idea what was going on,” Lohan said. “I just hadn’t seen her in a week. She like disappeared.”
And Lohan, who as news of her break-up emerged would only admit that she and Ronson were “taking a break,” told DeGeneres on Thursday that she was not dating anyone new.
“I don’t need to deal with that,” the actress said. “It gets too distracting from everything that I need to focus on. Leaving town, you miss someone too much and you don’t want to go sometimes. But I really care about Samantha and we’ll see what happens. Maybe when we’re fully in the right place … and I love her.”
It was a markedly different version of herself than Lohan presented in a comedy video this month for the Web site FunnyorDie.com, in which she jokingly pretended to look for love through a matchmaking company. Lohan’s relationship with Ronson, 31, has been the focus of constant media attention since they were photographed kissing at the Cannes International Film Festival in May 2008.
