Lindsay Lohan did a little shopping in Malibu Saturday, and RadarOnline.com spotted her pre-Betty Ford Center best friend Patrick Aufdenkamp discreetly at her side.
The two were at the Malibu Lumber Yard shopping center, with Lindsay in a cleavage-bearing top and cut-off denim shorts despite the cool temperatures.
Patrick, a stylist, had been one of Lindsay's closest friends since her arrival in Hollywood, but just a year ago she accused him of "stealing" sketches for her legging designs. She should have "known better" than to trust him, she told Us magazine last January, and said their friendship was over.
Apparently not. Aufdenkamp has always insisted he's gotten a bum rap from Lindsay's dad Michael and others who considered him a bad influence on the troubled actress.
Michael now tells RadarOnline.com exclusively he's changed his mind about Patrick. ""I used to have a very different opinion of Patrick but I've spent a lot of time getting to know him and I don't think there is a better person to be around Lindsay," he says. "Patrick is a good and positive influence on Lindsay and I know he is going to be helpful to her."
