Actress Lindsay Lohan has hit out at the Los Angeles police chief after he said the star had "gone gay".
"Police chiefs shouldn't get involved in everyone else's business when it comes to their personal life. It's inappropriate," Lohan said.
Chief William Bratton made the remark while explaining why he did not support a crackdown on the paparazzi.
Lohan, the star of Mean Girls and Freaky Friday, has been linked with DJ Mark Ronson's sister Samantha.
The police chief was discussing problems with the paparazzi on LA news channel KNBC.
Police chief William Bratton boycotted a meeting about the paparazzi
He said: "If you notice, since Britney started wearing clothes and behaving, Paris is out of town not bothering anybody, thank God, and evidently, Lindsay Lohan has gone gay, we don't seem to have much of an issue."
Chief Bratton had earlier refused to attend a Los Angeles city task force meeting to discuss ways to combat the paparazzi.
Lohan gave her response in a video filmed by paparazzi and posted on celebrity website TMZ.
Her publicist Leslie Sloane has previously denied that the actress is in a relationship with Samantha Ronson, but said they were "close friends".
“I didn’t have to put much thought into it. I mean, Bert Stern? Doing a Marilyn shoot? When is that ever going to come up? It’s really an honor… I wanted to portray the book and get it point-on as much as I could, to bring it back to life… “Here is a woman who is giving herself to the public,” Lohan said, about the Monroe photos, when we spoke the next day by phone. “She’s saying, ‘Look, you’ve taken a lot from me, so why don’t I give it to you myself.’ She’s taking control back."
