Lindsay Lohan insists her relationship with Samantha Ronson is not over. The "Mean Girls" actress - who split from her DJ girlfriend last Friday - had previously said life without Samantha was like living in "hell", but now insists her romance is not dead and buried.
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."
Samantha's family reportedly hired five security guards to keep Lindsay out of Los Angeles' Bar Marmont, where Samantha was playing, on Friday.
The DJ then changed the locks on the Hollywood Hills home she shared with Lindsay and was even said to be seeking a restraining order against her, although she has denied the claims.
Lindsay has since claimed she is being shunned by friends of Samantha - including Nicole Richie - calling those close to the DJ "a bunch of disrespectful, unappreciative, jealous people with bad f***ing energy."
The 22-year-old actress 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.
A source said: "Lindsay was out on Tuesday at a tattoo parlor. She was calling the paps to see who Samantha was with at the Chateau Marmont."
Meanwhile, 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."
