Paris Hilton Congratulated Lindsay Lohan On Her Engagement Despite 'Past Differences'

On Friday, Paris Hilton used her podcast This Is Paris to congratulate Lindsay Lohan on her recent engagement to Bader Shammas. Shammas works as the assistant vice president of Credit Suisse in Dubai and he and Lohan have been seeing each other for about two years. Hilton is recently married herself, but Lohan wasn't at the wedding. The formerly close friends have had a tumultuous relationship, but Hilton assured listeners she is very happy for Lohan.

'I also just saw that Lindsay got engaged,' Hilton said on the episode. 'And I know we've had our differences in the past, but I just wanted to say congratulations to her and that I am genuinely very happy for her.'

She went on, bringing up Britney Spears, alluding to her recent release from her conservatorship, and called the three of them the 'holy trinity.' Hilton, Spears, and Lohan were big partiers and popular celebrity gossip targets in the early 2000s.

'It just makes me so happy to see, you know, 15 years later, and just so much has happened in the past two weeks,' said Hilton. 'I got married, Britney got her freedom back and engaged, and then Lindsay just got engaged.'

She continued, 'So I love just seeing how different our lives are now and just how much we've all grown up and just having love in our lives.'

The feud itself is a bit complicated, but it supposedly began in 2006 when Lohan was romantically linked to Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos, Hilton's ex. Soon after, Hilton was recorded laughing at her friend Brandon Davis mocking Lohan's finances and who infamously called her a 'fire crotch' to reporters.

'I think she's worth about $7 (£5.28) million, which means she's really poor. It's disgusting. She lives in a motel,” Davis said as Hilton laughed.

Things spiralled from there, though the two supposedly patched things up by 2009. Then in 2011, Hilton made a joke about Lohan being a thief after she was sentenced to 120 days in jail for stealing a necklace. She apologised, but then things went off the rails again in 2013, when Hilton's younger brother accused Lohan of assaulting him at Art Basel, though it was later attributed to a man named Ray Lemoine. A comment from Hilton on Instagram implied she thought Lohan and Lemoine were in cahoots.

That's all in the past. Lohan moved to Dubai in 2014, and has since started a new life with Shammas, who she called 'My love. My life. My family. My future.'
