Lindsay Lohan might have dated DJ Samantha Ronson on and off for years, but the actress insits that she is not bisexual.
Before heading to rehab, the troubled 26-year-old starlet sat down with Piers Morgan for a candid interview, published in the Daily Mail. She spoke about life as a child star, her drug use and her upcoming 90-day rehab stint. Then Lohan opened up about bisexuality and her relationship with Ronson.
Via the Daily Mail:
Morgan: Do you think you’re bisexual?
Lohan: Not really. I like being in a relationship with a guy. But there’s something just different about it with a woman. When I was with Samantha (Ronson), I didn’t want to leave, because I didn’t want to be alone. It was very toxic. And her family controlled anything she did.
Morgan: Were you in love with her?
Lohan: I still love her as a person.
Morgan: But were you IN love with her?
Lohan: I think there was a point when I was.
Morgan: So you’re probably straight?
Lohan: No, I know I’m straight. I have made out with girls before, and I had a relationship with a girl. But I think I needed to experience that and I think I was looking for something different.
Back in 2008, the "Mean Girls" star confirmed in an interview with Harper's Bazaar that she was dating the famous DJ. When asked if she considered herself bisexual, Lohan said "maybe" but added that she didn't like labels.
"I don't want to classify myself. First of all, you never know what's going to happen — tomorrow, in a month, a year from now, five years from now," she told the fashion mag. "I appreciate people, and it doesn't matter who they are, and I feel blessed to be able to feel comfortable enough with myself that I can say that."
The actress' latest romance was a brief fling with rocker Avi Snow. But Lohan has admitted that Ronson was her last serious relationship -- a love that she says suffered from the press' hounding.
"I was bold enough to say, 'Yeah, I like a girl. And?'" she told Us Weekly about going public with their romance in 2008. "That put her [Ronson] in a situation where she was being attacked every day. That's not fair. And what am I left with? Heartbreak. That was three years ago. It was my last serious relationship."
Other female celebrities who have publicly discussed bisexual encounters -- like Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Evan Rachel Wood and Drew Barrymore -- later went on to marry men.
