However, their romance did not last long because that same year Aaron Carter broke up with Hilary, according to the actor himself because “he was bored”. According to Buzzfeed, Aaron Carter stated, “I met Hilary when I was 13. I dated her for a year and a half, then I got a little bored and started meeting Lindsay.”

At that time, Lindsay Lohan had already established herself as one of the child stars of the moment after having triumphed with the 1998 film ‘The Game of Twins’.

Shortly after, Aaron Carter began a relationship with Lindsay Lohan, however their romance did not prosper as the famous decided to return with Hilary Duff.

This second opportunity did not last long as rumors arose that Aaron Carter was unfaithful to the singer again and they put an end to their relationship in early 2003.

Although neither Hilary Duff nor Lindsay Lohan were related to Aaron Carter, they were considered “arch enemies” since both celebrities were beginning to make a name for themselves in the film industry.

20 years ago Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan became great references for young people, and that is that the famous ones, in addition to acting, also sang.

Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan were constantly compared for their performances, style and music, which caused versions that pointed out that they started a fight to see who would become the great star of the young public.

In the midst of their success, Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan faced rumors of a great feud between them, which would have arisen with Aaron Carter – although at that time he was no longer on the map.

In the summer of 2003, the movie ‘Freaky Friday’ was released, starring Lindsay Lohan and Chad Murray. Unexpectedly, Hilary Duff attended, who would have been invited by the leading actor.

This would not have made Lindsay Lohan happy, who decided months later to attend the premiere of ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’, where Hilary Duff participated.

According to HELLO! magazine, Hilary Duff had asked the producer not to allow access to Lindsay Lohan, but this request had been denied. Given this Hilary Duff decided to leave earlier than expected. In the midst of her controversy, her representative assured that the actress had left the premises because she had a very early flight the next morning.

The actor Chad Michael Murray would have been in the middle of the rivalry, because according to the Univisión media, Lindsay Lohan called him all the time while recording “A Modern Cinderella” to annoy Hilary Duff.

When things seemed to have calmed down, Lindsay Lohan starred in a skit on ‘Saturday Night Live’ where she made fun of Hilary Duff after actress Rachel Dratch appeared dressed as the well-known character Lizzie McGuire.

After the parody, Hilary Duff showed her annoyance to USA Today: “I think it’s really bad when they make fun of people. If I ever did host ‘SNL,’ I wouldn’t do a skit on it. However, I liked being able to dress all in pink.”

In 2004 Lindsay Lohan revived the controversy during an interview at the premiere of ‘Confessions of a typical teenager’ when she was asked to reveal something that no one knew. At that moment Lindsay Lohan said: “I love you, Hilary Duff”. In an interview with Us Weekly for her movie ‘Mean Girls’, the actress stressed that they had finished their fight months ago and were fine: “It ended a few months ago. We’re fine. Don’t mess with us!”

People revealed in 2007 that the differences between the famous were over, even noting that Hilary Duff mentioned: “We are both adults and whatever happened, happened when we were young. It’s over”.

Since then Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan have pointed out that there is no rivalry and that everything is in the past, however the media continue to remember their fight.

Currently Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan have followed their path both personally and professionally and have even left behind their rivalry that arose over Aaron Carter.
