Entertainment behind the scenes
Lindsay Lohan’s paternal grandfather has died, which appears to have brought the actress and her father closer together after a public spat, according to reports on a few celebrity web sites on Friday.
Michael Lohan, the actress’ father, told the cable network E!that his father, Richard Lohan, died of cancer on Thursday.
“I was holding him, laying in bed with him, when he died,” Lohan told E!
“Lindsay did reach out to me. She sent me a message this morning. She said, ‘Now papa has found peace and maybe we can find peace in our lives, too.”
For a week, celebrity and gossip magazines have been buzzing with talk that Lindsay Lohan’s “friendship” with DJ Samantha Ronson is more than just friendship. They are having an affair, according to the gossip mill. The current talk was fueled mostly by a picture published last week of the two kissing while attending a Cannes film festival party.
Pictures of Lohan sporting an engagement ring last week in Cannes set off speculation the 21-year-old starlet could be heading to the wedding chapel with Ronson. But beware, it’s not the first time Lohan has stoked public interest by wearing something shiny on her wedding finger. She also did it a couple years ago, back when her constant companions were mostly of the male variety.
