... from that red-headed skank.
"We're just sort of taking a little breather right now and slowing things down," the restaurateur said. "A lot of people started saying we're engaged. It put a lot of pressure on things. â€¦ We need a little space."
And Lohan needs a little sexin'. Anyone know where Bam Margera is?
Morton also said he'd had a hard time dealing with being in such a high-profile relationship.
"The media getting involved always makes it more difficult," he said. "I'm a very private person. I'm sure she has dealt with it for years, (but it) puts a lot of pressure on me."
In a moment of
complete dishonesty honesty Harry said of Lohan: "I have nothing but the utmost respect for her."
As People magazine reported last week, Linsday was seen sobbing and talking on her cell phone after a Sept. 21 chat with Morton at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont. Sources close to the pair said that Morton had dumped her, in spite of Lohan's efforts to cut down on partying.
Two nights later the pair was seen talking briefly at L.A.'s Hyde Lounge, though Morton left alone.
The next day, eyewitnesses saw Lohan and Stavros Niarchos (her former flame and ex-boyfriend of her rival, Paris Hilton) at the Dragonfly club, with, says one observer, "fingers interlocked â€¦ sharing kisses on the lips."
But other sources say she was just trying to make Morton jealous. The only question remaining in this fracas is: why the heck do we still care? Isn't there a Dustin Diamond sex tape we can watch?
