Maybe Samantha Ronson doesn't like lesbians
Previously obscure DJ Samantha Ronson may be enjoying her newfound fame since shacking up with Lindsay Lohan, but the New York Post's Page Six says she's anything but charitable to her fellow lesbians.
"Deejay Stacy" Ledwith, the regular turntable mistress at Rubyfruit in New York's West Village, says management from the bar had tried to ask Sam for help with a benefit to save the bar, which was going to close after 15 years because of rising rents. She says owner Debra Fiero was given the cold shoulder by Ronson's agent, though.
"At first, her agent said it was $8,000 for the night plus airfare and hotel," Ledwith says, pointing out that kind of misses the point of a benefit. "Then, he was informed it was a gay and lesbian bar, we were told she doesn't do those kind of venues. She doesn't do gay and lesbian bars and clubs. I thought it was kind of strange considering she's a lesbian. ... It's really like betraying her sisters."
Ronson's spokesman, Brandon Phelps, says the story is untrue, since he's the only one who handles her calendar and wasn't approached for a gig. Of course, with her meteoric rise to near-noticeability, it's possible Sam has another agent somewhere to handle her huge volume of two or three phone calls per day.
