The star, who has kept quiet about the status of her close relationship with the 31-year-old DJ, called in to syndicated radio show “Loveline” on KROQ to talk about the DJ AM/Travis Barker plane crash before the subject turned to romance.
Show host Stryker asked the actress how long she’d been going out with Sam, prompting a laugh from Lindsay.
“A very long time,” she said after a pause.
Stryker congratulated her, telling her he hoped they’d stay together.
“Thank you very much,” Lindsay said.
It was the first time the star had publicly admitted to a romantic relationship with Samantha, though she’s hinted at it via her MySpace blog – in an entry three weeks ago, she wrote, “This song is for SR… ILY,” presumably short for, “I love you.”
