Lindsay and Samantha's Friendship: 'It's a Trust Thing'
Pals say Lohan feels safe with Ronson as her constant companion
Why does Lindsay Lohan spend so much time with good pal Samantha Ronson?
“Lindsay just feels safe with her,” socialite – and Lohan friend – Cory Kennedy told PEOPLE at Billabong’s 2nd Annual Design for Humanity Event Wednesday night in Hollywood. “I just feel like they have a very loyal and trustworthy relationship, which is really hard to come across in the world that Lindsay’s in. It’s a trust thing.”
The DJ has been Lohan’s constant companion during the past few weeks – they even enjoyed a recent family get-together with Ronson’s mom, Ann Dexter-Jones, and Lohan’s young sister Ali in New York City. The traveling duo also cozied up on Diddy’s yacht during the Cannes Film Festival.
On Wednesday night, Lohan showed up at a G-Star party in Beverly Hills to support Ronson, who was spinning. After spending some together-time in the DJ booth, they headed for Ronson’s next gig at the pre-party for a N.E.R.D. concert. (After Pharrell Williams’s set, the two sat close together on a black leather couch – then made their joint exit around midnight.)
A ‘Genuine’ Friendship
DJ Steve Aoki, a close friend of both Lohan and Ronson, said their bond is easy to understand.
“[Samantha] truly is a friend to her,” he explained. “She’s a very positive influence …. [Lindsay] sees that and sees a genuine, good friendship.”
“I think the most important thing in a relationship is, really, trust,” agreed Kennedy. “I feel like that’s what their relationship thrives on. I love the fact that they’re both really happy.”
