Lindsay Lohan's ugly public breakup with Samantha Ronson

Lilo_240 Lindsay Lohan finally admitted that she split with girlfriend Samantha Ronson, but what she initially tried to keep hush-hush has become a messy, public case of she said, she said.

"We are taking a brief break so I can focus on myself," the 22-year-old first confirmed to E! News on Monday.

It wasn't the most surprising news, especially since so much was played out on the Internet.

Last Friday, Ronson had security bar Lohan from entering a party at Bar Marmont for her sister, designer Charlotte Ronson. Both families were staying at the Chateau Marmont at the time, and LiLo reportedly tried to barge into the DJ's brother's room.

In retaliation, Lohan told Ronson on Twitter:  "I'm doing this publicly because you and your friends call People magazine... so, you win. You broke my heart. Now go away. I loved you."

A day later, Ronson changed the locks on her Hollywood home, where Lohan had been living for the past few months and where she hid out when an arrest warrant was issued for her in March.

On Sunday, the same day Lohan publicly denied that they had broken up, the Ronson family had made inquiries about how they could obtain a restraining order, reports UsMagazine.com. Whether or not this was meant for Lohan has not been determined.

Finally, on Monday Lohan confirmed their breakup, and Ronson changed her relationship status to "single" on MySpace.

Both parties are blaming each other (Lohan specifically blames Ronson's family of launching a "smear campaign" against her). Meanwhile, Lohan is focusing her energies on her new spray tan line Sevin Nyne, which will debut on Sephora.com this month.
