The Wanted star Max George has opened up about his relationship with Lindsay Lohan, revealing the troubled actress has been partying with them on tour and he feels proud to have kept her "out of trouble" over the last week.
The actress was enjoying an evening out in New York with the British pop stars last month (Nov12) when she was arrested for allegedly punching a fellow reveller at a Manhattan nightclub.
The Wanted stars subsequently defended Lohan and bandmember Jay MCGuiness showed his support for her by performing at Madison Square Garden wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the message "Free Lindsay".
Lohan has since been travelling with the singers on the Jingle Ball tour, supporting them at a show in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Wednesday (05Dec12), in Boston, Massachusetts on Thursday (06Dec12) and again at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Friday (07Dec12).
She was even photographed embracing George, sparking rumours of a blossoming new romance.
George has now opened up about his relationship with Lohan, revealing she has been having a good time during the tour.
During an interview on New York radio station Z100, he said, "I think we've proved to ourselves, if we can stay out of trouble and keep her out of trouble this week, then we're obviously outstanding citizens of the community, and we've managed to do both, so I'm quite proud of that," while MCGuiness interjected, "Aside from the first night (when she was arrested)."
However, George has suggested that Lohan is drinking again despite her numerous stints in rehab, stating, "She always brings vodka to the table, that's definitely one thing... It's fine. She's good company."
Meanwhile, in an interview with the Huffington Post, George adds, "I love that she can party nearly as hard as we can. We had a big night on the (tour) bus where (British singer) Ed Sheeran came on with us and a few of our mates as well, and we just had one big party. It was great..."
"I'm sure she's got people around her that know her much better than we do. We're probably not the best influence, to be honest."
