Lindsay Lohan insists her romance with Samantha Ronson is not dead and buried.
The Mean Girls actress reportedly split from her DJ girlfriend last week, but now she has come out and defended her relationship with her lesbian lover.
Asked how she was coping without Samantha, Lindsay replied: "You guys make it seem like it's so over, but it's not. People take breaks. It's OK. It's normal, they focus on themselves."
According to media reports, the ‘very much single’ Lindsay is struggling to cope with the end of the relationship and has reportedly taken to asking paparazzi where Samantha is so she can go and see her, reports The China Daily.
A source said: Lindsay was out on Tuesday (07.04.09) at a tattoo parlour. She was calling the paps to see who Samantha was with at the Chateau Marmont.
Following the news of the break-up, Lindsay's grandmother Marilyn has spoken of her concern for her granddaughter.
Speaking from New York, she said: All the family would like to reach out to her. We're all here for her and we'd love to see her. Me, as a grandmother, I'd like to try and help her out, but she's not here, she's in Los Angeles. I think she needs her family in her life, but they're not. They should be. I haven't seen her in over a year.
I think what happened is she's had too much too fast. She was on her own too early.
