Even after a tumultuous break-up and months without stepping out together in public, it seems Samantha Ronson still has a soft spot for Lindsay Lohan.
The former couple were spotted dining together in a Beverly Hills restaurant on Monday, a week before 24-year-old Lindsay begins a 90-day prison stay for violating her probation.
The dinner came after Samantha publicly defended the Mean Girls actress, who had been under fire from notoriously acerbic US comedienne Joan Rivers.
"Hey Joan Rivers - you have collagen older than Lindsay, pick on someone your own age," Samantha wrote on Twitter in response to a series of sharp-tongued posts from Joan, who has poked fun at her own love of plastic surgery in the past.
In one of her scathing messages, the funny woman wrote on the social networking site, "Lindsay Lohan said she wouldn't mind being under oath because she thought Oath was a Norwegian ski instructor."
Meanwhile, Lindsay seemed to appreciate her ex's support, later reposting her words and thanking her.
