As Lindsay Lohan
and girlfriend Samantha Ronson become more and more outspoken
about their relationship, friends and former flames alike are starting to feel confident about giving their blessing.
"As long as Lindsay is safe" her former boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama, told PEOPLE, "and Samantha is happy, I really have no opinion other than, 'Go on and do your thing.' "
Despite the fact that Lohan and the That 70's Show
star had a messy breakup
back in 2004, it seems as if time has healed all Valderrama's wounds.
"Samantha has been a very good friend of mine for many years," Valderrama, 28, said at Thursday's Environmental Media Awards in Los Angeles, "and Lindsay is one of my loves. She's a love of mine that I will always hold very dear to me. Honestly, as long as they're both happy."
