In today's random ex-reality star news, Us Weekly reports that Lindsay Lohan is dating Matt Nordgren, who dedicated Bravo fanatics may recognize from his stint on the short-lived docu-reality seriesMost Eligible Dallas.
Last week, Page Six reported that Matt Nordgren was claiming the two were dating, though the only thing he's said on record is "we’ve hung out. But I have been a friend trying to support her for many years now." According to Matt he and Lindsay met seven years ago through mutual friends. Because hey, it's L.A., so meeting Lindsay Lohan through a friend is just the kind of thing that happens sometimes.
According to Us Weekly's sources, Matt has been "a great influence on [Lindsay], and her friends and family love him."
Outside of his starring role on Most Eligible Dallas, where he memorably had an almost obnoxiously UST-y relationship with his BFF Courtney Kerr, Matt also has a claim to fame as a football star. He was a quarterback for the University of Texas, and spent a season in the NFL as a backup quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. An injury cut his career short.
Whether or not these dating rumors are the real deal, Matt does seem to know Lindsay, and he assured Page Six that "she’s completely sober for months now." That's always nice to hear!
