LiLo's Problems All Sam Ronson's Fault: Dad Lindsay Lohan was 'vulnerable' when they started dating, he says By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted May 31, 2013 10:04 AM CDT 2 comments Comments In this Sept. 6, 2008 file photo, actress Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson, left, attend the Charlotte Ronson 2009 Spring Collection in Bryant Park during Fashion Week in New York. (AP Photo/Peter Kramer, file) (Newser) – Have we returned to 2009? Because Michael Lohan is saying all of daughter Lindsay's problems can be blamed on ... Samantha Ronson. Lindsay was "vulnerable," but "in a pretty OK place" until she entered into a volatile relationship with the DJ, the elder Lohan told Nik Richie on Richie's radio show, according to Australia's News Network. He thinks Ronson was just using Lindsay to boost her own fame, and claims Ronson was even paid $175,000 for a picture of Lohan passed out in her car. "Samantha was always spinning for $500 at a club, after she met Lindsay she would get in excess of $25,000," Michael claims. "People use Lindsay like that, she's very susceptible." He adds that he and ex-wife Dina were getting divorced at the time, and Lindsay was lost. "Samantha got her when she was down," he says. Ronson must have got wind of the interview, because Jezebel notes that last night she tweeted, "Hey michael Lohan- shut the [bleep] up!"
