Samantha Ronson pays more than $86K to Perez Hilton

Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson

The King of Gossip, Perez Hilton, is probably pretty happy right now.

E! Online reports that Perez Hilton, whose real name is Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr., received $86,832 from Lindsay Lohan’s girlfriend DJ Samantha Ronson on Friday, to cover his legal expenses from a libel suit she filed against him last year.

Ronson sued Perez for defamation after he had reported that she was in fact the one who owned the cocaine found in Lindsay Lohan’s car after the actress lost control of it and ran it up a curb on May 26, 2007.

But in January, 2008, a judge threw out the whole case and said that Ronson had to pay for the blogger’s legal fees, which she had not done until last week.

By paying the fees, Ronson does not have to show up for her court hearing tomorrow about how and when she was going to pay her debt to Perez.
