Lindsay Lohan’s gal pal, Samantha Ronson, has blind-sided two popular celebrity gossip blogs with a $20 million libel suit late last week.

According to the New York Daily News, Ronson struck back at suggestions that cocaine found in Lindsay Lohan’s car was actually hers.

The rumors began after the now infamous fender bender that landed the Mean Girls actress in rehab.

Named as defendants were Jill Ishkanian, who runs the Sunset Photo and News Agency, and Mario Lavandeira, who blogs under the name Perez Hilton.

In June, Perez Hilton repeated the cocaine claim that first appeared on Celebrity Babylon, a Web site operated by Sunset Photo.

That site first claimed that Samantha Ronson, a budding celebrity disc jockey in her own right, was “making a tidy profit on the side, shilling Lindsay Lohan, 20, out to photographers eager to get her photo looking passed out and wasted.”

The story about Ronson, a poor gal’s DJ AM, continues:

If that wasn’t shocking enough, sources say that it was Samantha Ronson who was holding the cocaine later found in Lindsay Lohan’s car.”

Although the suit was filed in L.A. Superior Court Thursday, Ishkanian said she wasn’t aware of it. She also did not say anything about the rumored Lindsay Lohan nude pics.

“This is the first I’m hearing about it,” she said yesterday. “I have no comment.”

Perez Hilton could not immediately be contacted, as he was probably too busy doodling on celebrity photos he neglected to pay royalties for.
