It was none other than Lindsay Lohan.
The two apparently had a fun evening with stops at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont and then at nightclub hot spot H.Wood, where "they were laughing and talking," a source said.
And it didn't end there...
After clubbing, they went to LL's house. Paparazzi agency X17 reports that Lohan was visited by the cops at about 3:30 a.m. after neighbors apparently complained about her loud music. (A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman could not confirm the visit to us, because a noise complaint "would be too minor" for the nightwatch to record.)
Never one to let the police get in the way of having a good time, Lohan and Seacrest ditched her abode at about 4 a.m. and headed to Seacrest's place.
A couple of hours later, Linds was spotted heading back home.
What exactly went on behind the closed doors, we don't know. However, a source close to Lohan tells me that the starlet recently told friends she and Seacrest have talked about working together.
"Lindsay said they've had a couple of business meetings," the source reports. "She wants to co-produce something with Ryan, maybe a reality show or a movie."
In fact, Ryan said, er, tweeted himself that he's got an idea for the comeback kid.
"Met with lindsay last night about a show idea I have for her...it helps people and gives others a second shot! Still putting it all together," he wrote on his Twitter page Friday.
