Set down your water bottle. Halt your DJ set. Doff your fedora and bow your head. The romance between Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson is no more, says Access Hollywood.
AH quotes a source close to Lohan who says that following the split, the actress has moved out of the house she shares with Ronson. It's the dénouement of Hollywood's most beloved, barely confirmed same-sex affair, and AH claims it began to unravel as the two of them staged a series of epic public spats in Miami:
On New Year's Eve, things went from bad to worse as Lindsay and Samantha hosted a bash together at club Mansion, where the two reportedly began another fight in public, before taking their shouting match outside.
According to the [New York Post], Lindsay screamed, "When I storm off, you are supposed to follow me!" [...]
The paper claims the war of words later turned to a physical altercation back at the hotel the two women were staying at.
"They were punching each other – it was bad," another source told the paper. "And they were doing this in front of all of us. It was scary."
Our condolences to both women as they work out the stages of Hollywood grief: terse publicist denials, mysterious MySpace entries with moods of "sad" and "confused," and finally, a statement from Leslie Sloane Zelnick confirming, "After nearly a year of friendship, Lindsay Lohan will no longer be attending club nights that book DJ sets by Samantha Ronson. Please respect her privacy as she struggles through this difficult time."
