Lindsay Lohan told friends that Sam Ronson “abused” her


Last Friday, Radar had a very interesting report about Lindsay Lohan and her ex-lover Samantha Ronson being in the same club at the same time at one point last week. While Sam was deejaying, Lindsay was obsessively trying to get Sam’s attention, downing drinks and pills, and dancing with other girls. Sam allegedly called Lindsay a “disgrace” and Lindsay furthered the drama by allegedly throwing a drink in Sam’s face. Today, Radar has another report about the situation, only this one is slanted more anti-Ronson. According to Radar’s sources, Lindsay has been claiming to friends that Sam “beat the sh-t” out of her and once “punched and choked” her. Um… really?

Lindsay Lohan’s relationship with ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson has turned violent, a source close to both of them told exclusively.

Although Lindsay appeared to have moved on from her tumultuous relationship with girlfriend Ronson, the two have been spotted out at the same clubs recently and as exclusively reported they fought so badly one night that Lindsay threw a drink in Sam’s face.

“One time I saw her [Lindsay] and she had a large welt on her head,” the source told “She told me that Sam beat the (bleep) out of her. She also said that Sam even punched and choked her one time.”

Making things worse is the fact that both women live in the same building.

Following the break-in at her Hollywood Hills home, Lindsay moved into an apartment in West Hollywood. Shortly after, Samantha moved in. The source tells that Ronson regularly comes over using a key she has to Lindsay’s apartment.

“It’s so twisted. They’re not together, but they are,” said the source. “I never thought I’d ever say this, but I really do feel sorry for Lindsay. She is just lost. She’s alone. She has no friends to turn to.”

Lindsay’s father Michael Lohan has repeatedly expressed concern that Lindsay’s behavior is being negatively effected by the prescription drugs she’s taking and that she is taking too many.

Okay, here’s the thing: while I’ll buy that Lindsay’s friends might be repeating some crap they’ve heard from Lindsay, I don’t think Lindsay is telling the truth. I seriously, seriously doubt Sam ever hit Lindsay or choked her or beat her. Considering Lindsay’s history as a cracked-out liar, and her history of self-abuse and abusing others, the only thing I’ll buy is that Sam Ronson has perhaps physically restrained Lindsay from harming herself or others. Or am I totally off base? Does Sam seem like the kind of girl who would abuse her girlfriend?

    1. It is hard to believe that Lindsay has any friends left.

    2. Who believes anything Lindsay says?

    Is this news, gossip, or BS?

  2. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I don’t buy it either. I think the scenario you described is more like it.

    if there was any physicality to this relationship, Ronson was most likely stopping LL from hurting herself or other people…like Ronson.

    but in her delusions, it’s possible…nay, LIKELY…that LL saw it as “sam is abusing me!”

  3. Melissa says:

    Samantha kind of reminds me of Shane from the L Word.

  4. Rachum says:

    Given Lohans rep for being the pillar of trust and honesty I call BS. I can totally believe that she told some friend (read: dealer/enabler) that Sam was abusive but probably only did so as they were distracted with something other than her drama at the time and that would never do.

    I think Sam seems like the only good thing Lohan had going for her and poor linds, she couldn’t get her shit together in order for their relationship to actually function.

    Low blow by Lohan to the one person who seems like she was at least trying to help her at one time.

  5. Jazz says:

    It probably happened in her cracked out imagination. It’s another ploy to get Sam’s attention.

  6. Icecat says:

    What in the Hell was Sam thinking by moving into the same building as HoHan?? I’m sure there are other apartments in LA, right? That seems off to me, UNLESS Sam wanted to live in the same place.. Maybe they have really good sex or something.. CRAZY!

    I highly doubt Sam beat her up. If anything happened it was because she was probably defending herself. Lilo is the volatile one here. Remember the fights where she would throw random stuff at Sam??

  7. bella says:

    I find it really hard to believe anything Lindsay claims has happened to her. She is not known for her stellar honesty, and I seriously doubt she’s telling the truth now. On another note, both Linds and Sam look like anorexia victims, and I wonder where the “friends” are they supposedly surround themselves with, and why no one is speaking to them about their health.

  8. shibajonz says:

    Sam followed Lindsay? More likely the opposite.

  9. Beth says:

    If I remember correctly, they were still together when they moved into the building. Sam strikes me as the type to just walk away. She would only hit Lindsay if she through herself at Sam’s feet or the door to preven her from leaving. Also Lindsay is stalking Sam. The reason they are at the same clubs because Sam is working(dj) and Lindsay follows her.

  10. ogechi says:

    who wouldn’t choke her? I really need my diet coke right now [sighs].

  11. monkey says:

    so here is the deal – i think sam has beat her a few times, i think she has beat on sam. i think that they fight and get dirty with it. it is so not uncommon in lesbian relationships. it’s sad.

  12. embertine says:

    I’d be interested to see where your opinion of violence in lesbian relationships comes from, monkey. Personal experience?

    No doubt violence does occur in some same-sex relationships, but it’s also very common among hetero couples, sad to say.

  13. monkey says:

    see, it’s personal experience and it’s also through the experiences of many friends and their relationships. i can’t comment on how often it happens in the hetero world – i would not know. i always thought it had to do with the “men shouldn’t hit women.” & that women would think more than twice about hitting a larger man. but a girl on girl fight, seems that when things are heated, it just happens. it’s not okay, either way. just that with partners same sex and roughly same size – it seems less like the unfair fight of a woman against a man. while one might not beat the other, more of a fight as i said, it is still disfunctional and both should remove themselves for their own well being.

  14. monkey says:

    p.s. sam wishes she was shane from the l-word. WISHES! :)

  15. MsTriste says:

    I’m totally with Kaiser on this one. Let’s see…who’s lying? National Enquirer (aka Radar…) or LL? Who knows.

    I hope Sam has put on much-needed weight since that picture of her from last summer. She looks seriously anorexic.

  16. bella says:

    Hello again, Monkey! It happens far more often in the hetero world than it’s spoken of, too, although I imagine we hear less about violence in same-sex relationships than we do in hetero relationships. And that’s not necessarily a good thing. Violence in relationships crosses all boundaries, and information about violence in relationships should as well. Domestic violence is never okay (except in cases like Elin trying to whack Tiger because she found out he’s a man-ho – just kidding, don’t all attack me!), and EVERYONE should be taught that lesson, not just heterosexuals. Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now.

  17. damion says:

    You are right. There are facts in this reports that are all wrong. Ronson moved into her apartment building before Lohan. Lohan followed her there.
    I totally think you called it here and I am starting to feel sorry for Ronson that she ever got involved with lohan.

  18. Icecat says:


    I have many lesbian friends. During our younger years (early 20′s like Lilo) my friends and couples would fight. Mostly over other girls and jealousy. Women can be very mean. Plus factor in the drugs, partying, clubs etc..
    I guess I’m saying I’ve been there and witnessed the same situations, and it does happen A LOT more then people think…

  19. mollination says:

    the only thing I could believe is that Lindsay would be obsessed with someone that did that to her in a relationship.

    She would thrive on it, and get some sick obsessive pleasure…and I *do* know that that is how she seems to react to Sam.

    So while I don’t see Sam doing this, it would make a helluva lotta sense given their odd relationship if she did.

  20. justin says:

    I dont believe this for a second. Its common knowledge that lohan chases Ronson around and even gets info from the paps about her whereabouts.
    This must be a first where the victim stalks the abuser if so. Not believable at all. More likely the scenario you described.

  21. Green Is Good says:

    Jesus, Samro looks like a week old dead corpse. Lay off the coke and/or heroin already.

  22. nag says:

    Sam looking very unhealthy thee, her finger joints look swollen, or else she is extremely underweight..

  23. figure8 says:

    I think that samantha has looked underweight for the last two years if not more. It’s been said before that they have had physical fights. Remember after New Years Eve last year, in Miami, where it got super loud and ugly? ( I don’t either I wasn’t there). Guess I can only comment on the photos, everyday can’t be a bad hair day!

  24. Betty says:

    I could see Sam getting so frustrated with Lyns that she struck her. Or it could also be in self defense. Lyns probably only knows how to handle her anger with get f**ked up or lashing out with her mouth and hands. This is just speculation. The real story is probably much more interesting like Lyns walking into a door to get a bump on her head.

  25. CB Rawks says:

    Lindsay is such a huge liar that she’ll never be believed for anything, regardless of what actually happens, ever. She’d better pull herself together soon, for her own sake.
    And no, I don’t believe this story either.

  26. snapdragon says:

    i hate lohan’s little candy corn teeth.

  27. kermit says:

    The date when Lindsay had the welt was? Then, see if there are any pap pics. I’ve not seen pics of either one of them looking battered when they were a couple.

    I think someone provided that site with an anti-Ronson fantasy early last week. An anti-Lohan source countered. The anti-Ronson source counters. IMO, there need not be any comments about either Sam or Lindsay as the story comes from neither of them.

  28. oxa says:

    Lindsay donates leggings to Haiti.
    Lindsay is a hoarder.
    Lindsay goes back to being a redhead.
    Lindsay was abused.
    This chick will do anything to get attention and it is funny how this last bit comes out after she was seen drinking like a fish, throwing a tantrum and tossing her drink in Sam’s face in a public place where many saw her behavior.

  29. sam says:

    Off the subject: While Sam looks to be a thin person anyways. Over the past few years I have thought she looks like she is into drugs in a big way. Her weight does not seem natural – she has a skeletal and unhealthy look to her body and face….just my opinion.

  30. Anonymous says:

    I CAN’T STAND THIS STUPID LITTLE TRICK. Why isn’t there a law against narcissism?!?!?!?

  31. skeptical says:

    ok.. seriously?

    we have lindsay growing up with a daily close-up of how to be abusive…

    we also have dina on tape saying lindsay hit her.. and dina didn’t even know she was being recorded by the evil rat michael.

    we have lindsay storming out of prive yelling “did she leave? did she f**king leave!?”

    and shortly after that….
    we have the vid from March 09 where there was something thrown through samantha’s window

    and through it all samantha looked like death warmed over.

    i still say samantha’s dec 2008 trip to the hospital was for more than mere “exhaustion”.

    i call BS on this crap.. at worst samantha would have just defended herself.

  32. skilo says:

    I really don’t believe Sam was abusive to Lindsey. I know violence isn’t the answer but if if Lindsey tried to treat me the way she has publicly treated Sam I’d have probably kicked her a*# at least once. But that happens sometimes in relationships where the passion runs high. It really is a thin line between love and hate,if someone is constantly baiting you though rather than let them provoke you you should just end the relationship.

  33. RaeJillian says:

    people say that at the very worse she was defending herself. so should we say the same thing about chris brown? rihanna says she slapped him, who knows what that really means. is it any better in self defense?

  34. trashaddict says:

    Hopefully what people are saying is explanatory but not excusing. If Samantha had bitch-slapped Lilo, seems to me it would have showed up on vid somewhere, what with paps hanging out everywhere. Unless they are so tired of her they have just stopped following. Entirely possible.
    I do wonder if roughness was part of their sexual relationship. Some people get the two pretty confused.

  35. GatsbyGal says:

    Sam’s too thin and sinewy to really be a threat. That aside, yeah, I don’t believe Blowhan for a second. She’s a habitual liar.

  36. kermit says:

    It’s more Lindsay is habitually lied about. It’s amazing, girl says nothing recently and still stories circle about her. Jessica Alba defends her from earlier lie. Lindsay didn’t tell friends anything, someone claimed it. Anyone can claim anything. People who are basing their opinions on some “source” that may be as real as the tooth fairy frankly scare me. Why not base something on actual CURRENT interviews she does, not on “interpreted” tweets or dubious “sources” or what happened in 2007.

  37. skeptical says:

    anyone comparing ronson to chris brown has some serious explaining to do. chris didn’t just slapp rihanna.. he bruised and batterd her face until it was swollen up and there is evidence that’s been made public.

    meanwhile there is NOTHING to indicate that ronson has ever battered lindsay. Ever.

    do remember that lindsay will do ANYTHING to get attention! she name-drops, she posts topless pics of herself on the net, she has public tantrums with cameras running, she claims to be working all the time (on what?) she made herself a milkshake as a publicity stunt!

    pics or it didn’t happen.

  38. kate says:

    I don’t think Samantha ever touched Lindsay and i don’t think Lindsay ever would start such a rumour. I think Lindsay loves Samantha to much to hurt her like this,but i do think there are alot of people who don’t want to see them together so anybody could have lied to start trouble between them.Lindsay has always had Samantha’s back even agaist her father Michael when he was calling Sam names. Sorry i don’t Lindsay made up this story she seems to be honest. Buy the way I would love to see these two together and very happy they seem to love each oLther.Like i said i think someone other than Lindsay started this terrible rumour. I glad Lindsay spoke out.

  39. kermit says:

    It’s nonsense, Lindsay has just tweeted:

    This is become a bit much*Samantha R never raised a hand to me, I’ve never said she did* Enough is Enough. Focus on other more important…

    I think I’ve gotten to the bottom of this. There are “Stans” that get obsessed with certain celebs and one of Samantha’s “Stans” is the source of this as Sam did not cooperate with them. There is a particular board that’s on the net discussing what went down. As I initially thought, it was all fabricated by someone obsessed with one of them and has nothing to do with anything coming from either Sam or Lindsay.

    Sam thanked Lindsay on twitter and threatened legal action to the person perpetuating this rumor.

  40. skeptical says:

    well well… lilo finally got up long enough to post a full denial on her twitter…. followed with some gentle bantering between her and Samantha.. i do hope that will kill this ridiculous story once and for all.

    mostly I’m wondering what took Lindsay so long. This lie made it all the way to MSNBC.

    I repeat what i said before.. Lindsay = attention addict. I’ll change my mind after she vanishes for a good six months and gets her crap together.
