Sam Ronson Dumped Lindsay Lohan
The last days of their destructive relationship
Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson have officially broken up, and insiders say it was all Sam’s doing. The girls were just coming up on their two-year anniversary together this spring, but Sam needed to cut ties.
A close friend of the couple tells me, “The last few months have been torture for Sam. She has been trying to figure out how to safely extricate herself from Lindsay, but she fears for Lindsay’s mental stability. Sam is simply exhausted in every way. She and Lindsay fought daily–huge erratic fights about nothing in particular, but they’d just scream at each other and slam doors. If Lindsay caught Sam even talking to other women, she would freak out and an argument would start. Meanwhile, Lindsay could talk and flirt with men and women and Sam wasn’t allowed to be jealous.”
Friends and family were worried but tried to be supportive of the couple because their love seemed to be as intense as their hate. Spending time with her sister Charlotte Ronson in L.A. this weekend, Sam knew it was time to end both her–and Lindsay’s–suffering. “Sam finally came to a decision on her own, realizing how unhealthy and addictive the relationship had become and started making a plan to end it. With the support of her sister, she told Lindsay they were over last week. Lindsay flipped, but Sam refused to budge, and Lindsay is moving out of Sam’s house.”
Can Lindsay and Sam stay apart? They’ve broken up before but always get back together. “We hope this is the end for good–they both need help. Lindsay barely eats any food at all anymore and threatens her own bodily harm when she doesn’t get her way. It is such a twisted relationship. Sam needs to stay strong and ignore Lindsay’s threats.”
