How long have lindsay lohan and samantha ronson been dating

—without drifting into obviousness.“When I first started making the record two years ago, my life was so public,” Ronson said.

You want to ride on a plane or you want to own the plane? As the stepdaughter of Mick Jones, the guitarist-songwriter for the platinum-selling rock group Foreigner, and twin sister of fashion designer Charlotte Ronson, Samantha had long been comfortable within the rarefied corridors of rock stardom and high design.

But her ability to travel under the celebrity radar came to an abrupt end in 2007 when the person invariably described as Ronson’s “friend” until that point—Lindsay Lohan—was arrested for cocaine possession.

Before Ronson was rocking club bangers by Ke$ha and LMFAO or hobnobbing with the likes of Nicole Richie and DJ AM, turns out she had her sights set on becoming an acoustic balladeer in the Ani Di Franco mold.

In the early 2000s, alterna-rocker Duncan Sheik caught a live performance by Ronson in New York and volunteered to produce her demo tape.

Never mind that the Island Def Jam–distributed imprint’s roster was dominated by hardcore hip-hop artists in those days. '”But when Dash and Jay-Z acrimoniously dissolved their partnership and Island Def Jam top brass defected to Atlantic Records, Ronson’s album went into purgatory.

Ronson had been discussing her friendship with DJ AM and Travis Barker, who are recovering from severe burns following a plane crash in South Carolina last weekend, before putting Lohan on the phone.

Lohan's publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnik, told The Associated Press on Monday that Lohan is not engaged to be married.

Inspired by her brother Mark Ronson (who went on to great acclaim as a producer, working with such artists as Amy Winehouse), Samantha took up DJ'ing at various clubs and parties.
