Lindsay Lohan Confirms Split From Samantha Ronson

Actress says she and DJ are 'taking a brief break.'

After denying there was trouble in her relationship with Samantha Ronson last week, [movieperson id="207177"]Lindsay Lohan[/movieperson] confirmed on Monday that she and the DJ have broken up.

"We are taking a brief break so I can focus on myself," Lohan told E! News, which reported that the breakup occurred on Monday after some drama over the weekend between Lohan and Sam, as well as a few other Ronson family members.

On Friday, according to OK! magazine, Lohan was denied entry to a party for Sam's sister, designer Charlotte Ronson. A locksmith was later seen at the residence that [artist id="1241286"]Ronson[/artist] shared with Lohan, E! reported.

The couple had started dating about a year ago and had constantly been plagued with rumors of splits and fights. Sources told E! that the drama was the result of the Ronson family's "smear campaign to convince the DJ that Lohan was an outcast and a bully, or a wacko." A rep for Lindsay Lohan did not respond to e-mails from MTV News late Monday to confirm the split.

According to UsMagazine.com, Sam's mom and sister went to police in Beverly Hills to find out how they could get a restraining order against Lohan. "They were directed to the court to get a restraining order," Beverly Hills Sgt. Nutall told the site, although he wouldn't confirm that the inquiry was about Lohan.

After being barred from Charlotte Ronson's party on Friday, Lohan began writing about the incident on Twitter, instantly feeding rumors of a breakup.

A source told People magazine that Lohan's family is sticking by her side while she deals with the breakup.

"Is she upset? Yes. Has it been a rough week? Yes," the source told People. "But her family's around her, and she's just focusing on business right now."
