The 26-year-old star was pictured laughing and joking with Max’s bandmate, Tom Parker, as they wandered around backstage following the group’s gig at the KISS 108 Jingle Ball at TD Garden.

Beaming from ear-to-ear, the Liz & Dick actress seemed to be comfortable in the company of the singers as they chatted away happily.
While Tom seemed to be entertaining Lindsay with his tales, Max kept his head down as the trio wandered outside.
Lindsay, who was wrapped up in a grey fur coat and black jeans, was carrying a packet of cigarettes, suggesting the new pals were all heading out for a sneaky cigarette after the performance.
According to TMZ.com, the redhead beauty travelled with the British band to Boston from their gig in Philadelphia the previous evening.

sense among the investigators that Lindsay has absolutely no respect for
the law, and that the only place for someone like Lindsay is behind
