And talking about her and Lohan’s relationship, she stated:
“And we’re great! All is well. By the way, they’re the best.’

The 2005 interview
In a 2005 interview, she had said:
“It’s not about one person in particular. It’s just something every girl can relate to. It’s a song about [how] every girl out there sometimes thinks you stole her boyfriend. It’s just making fun of that.”
In another interview in 2005, she had said that she did date Wilmer. She had further added:
“me kind of making fun of something I went through. As far as saying who the song I wrote it about, or whatever, I’m not doing that with this record.”
Lindsay Lohan and Wilmer Valderrama
Lindsay Lohan and Wilmer Valderrama dated back in 2004. But they did not go public with their relationship until Lohan’s 18th birthday. But their relationship only lasted a few months.
There were rumors surrounding the three celebs at that time. The rumors were that Wilmer had dumped Lindsay to date Ashlee. When confronted about the rumors and the whole deal in a 2006 interview, Wilmer had denied that Ashlee was the reason he and Lindsay had broken up.
He had told in a 2005 interview with PEOPLE:
“We’ve been friends for about 5 and a half years. All of a sudden we couldn’t be in the same room before people were saying we were making out.”
He further added:
“A lot of people are out to make me look like this womanizer. The press has created this bachelor persona, but it’s not really me. Hey, I take it as a compliment. It must be the first time in history where a sidekick on a show has this kind of persona offscreen.”
