The new man in Lindsay Lohan's life may be the best thing she has going for her right now.
Josh Chunn is the 25-year-old fitness trainer and former member of University of Louisiana Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns cheerleader squad who's dating Lindsay Lohan.
"She’s a strong girl," Chunn says. "She’s cleaning up. I just want her to be okay. I want us to be okay.”
Chunn was outed as Lilo's new beau on Friday (Oct. 19), when Michael tried to stage an intervention by showing up at his daughter's house in Beverly Hills, only to find him standing in his way.
"It kind of put me in an awkward place,” Chunn says. "She said, ‘No, no. I don’t want him here. Why are you even talking to him?’"
He then asked Michael to leave.
“I feel his pain," Chunn says. "I get it. He’s just out to help her.”
Chunn is too, apparently. He says that he's not into drugs and hard partying. He's more of an outdoors type and is trying to get Lilo into that lifestyle.
"I think I’m the best influence on her,” he says. “The deal is she is surrounded by a bunch of f---ups.”
The LA transplant lives down the street from Lindsay, and despite his claims that he's not a party monster, it was after running into her at a recent party at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood that they started dating.
"I’m there for Lindsay," he explains. "I listen. I work hard for my money. I pay my own bill when we go out. I have a schedule. That’s the problem with these kids in L.A., they don’t have a schedule. All they want to do is party. I see all these people just waiting for her (Lindsay) to grab the bill. I’m just trying to figure out what’s best for her at this time right now.”
