Lohan first met Nordgren, 30, a former University of Texas football star who played one season with the Philadelphia Eagles, and then starred on the 2011 Bravo reality show Most Eligible Dallas, seven years ago.
While Nordgren has been linked to former The Bachelorette star Vienna Giardi and former The Hills star Audrina Patridge, he's has been with Lohan of late.
“We’ve hung out," he recently told Page Six. "But I have been a friend trying to support her for many years now.”
And it seems to be working.
"She's completely sober now," he added. "She's in a great place and working hard and meeting with all the right people."
It appears that he's one of them. The Dallas native is a a partner in his family's energy conservation firm Nordco, Inc. and has been good for her, according to one pal.
"She is very happy and very committed to staying sober," says the Lohan friend. "He drinks but not irresponsibly and not in front of her. He is close to her whole family."
Live this day, this month, this year, this life strongly connected to purpose and you'll connect yourself to elements of a life well lived.— Matt Nordgren (@MattNordgren) September 16, 2013
