Alternative fashion star and DJ Samantha Ronson, who was in an on again / off again relationship with Lindsay Lohan for 16 months, has defended Lohan against some scathing remarks made by Joan Rivers. Rivers, 77, made light of Lohan’s upcoming jail sentence for violating probation in a 2007 arrest, commenting, “I was just reading about the new Lindsay Lohan diet, which is all liquid. 80 Proof.”
Rivers also made other remarks about Lohan’s troubled life, leading Ronson to respond on Twitter, “Hey Joan Rivers – you have collagen older than Lindsay, pick on someone your own age, oh wait, I guess people that old can’t hear.”
Credited as the person who brought back the fedora and made it a celebrity fashion trend, Ronson is considered a muse for fashion designers like sister Charlotte Ronson, particularly in her line for Urban Outfitters.
