The Mean Girls star was actually driving Zapata’s Porsche when she was accused of a hit-and-run crash outside a New York City hotel last week.
She was also photographed carrying the artist’s young son days ago during a separate outing in the city.
Lohan has now clarified to Page Six that she and Zapata are not romantically involved in any way.
“We are just friends. He’s like my brother,” the actress told the newspaper.
Zapata concurred with Lohan’s comments, insisting that he and the star are “definitely not a couple”.
“I think highly of her, but we are just friends that have worked together in the past,” the artist explained.
Lohan was hospitalised this weekend for an apparent lung infection. She later commented thatshe is feeling “all right” following treatment.
