Looking for love! Lindsay Lohan’s romantic entanglements have inspired countless headlines for decades — beginning with her teenage flings.
During the Parent Trap star’s Disney days in the early 2000s, she was linked to popstar Aaron Carter and later That ‘70s Show alum Wilmer Valderrama.
Lohan was scrutinized for her relationship with English DJ Samantha Ronson and opened up to Us Weekly about the intense ridicule she received for dating a woman. “I was bold enough to say, ‘Yeah, I like a girl. And?’ That put [Ronson] in a situation where she was being attacked every day,” the actress told Us in 2012. “That’s not fair. … And what am I left with? Heartbreak.”
She added: “I needed to love myself before I could be with anyone. And I was going through a lot. Two toxic people cannot be together. End of story.”
The former child star also reflected on that relationship during a January 2018 Howard Stern interview as she discussed Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club cast mate Mike Mulderrig’s bisexuality. “I was the first one who … came out about it. Really. For my age,” Lohan told the radio host. “I come to his defense a bit. I was like, they shouldn’t be passing any judgment.”
Ronson, however, wasn’t the “great love” of Lohan’s life, according to the star. That designation went to a man she declined to name on air. “It was years ago,” she told Stern at the time. “I can’t say his name. It’s no one famous.”
The actress noted that her relationship with the mystery man ended when she discovered his deceit. “He lied about two things,” she explained. “He lied. … You’re with someone for two years, that’s a little bit too long to hold a lie.”
Lohan has kept a low-profile in regard to her dating life for years, after calling off her engagement to Egor Tarabasov in 2016. Her mother, Dina Lohan, told Us in April 2020, however, that Lindsay is seeing someone new.
“Lindsay is dating a wonderful guy right now,” Dina told Us exclusively. “But that’s neither here nor there. When she’s ready to talk about her personal life, [she will].”
Lindsay announced in November 2021 that she was engaged to financier Bader Shammas after nearly two years of dating.
“My love. My life. My family. My future. @bader.shammas #love 💍,” she captioned an Instagram gallery at the time, showing off her giant Harry Winston ring.
