6 JANUARY 2009

In the wake of speculation in the press that her romance with girlfriend Sam Ronson is over, Lindsay Lohan sent out a cyberspace message to let fans know the real story. "Little piece of TRUE information: We did NOT break up!" read a posting on her MySpace blog.

The actress went online to counter stories that an argument during a New Year's Eve party had lead her to call time on the relationship. "It's really annoying to have all of your friends e-mailing you saying, I saw, I read, etc. NOT TRUE," she wrote.

Jennifer Love Hewitt, on the other hand, is starting the new year as a singleton after her engagement to Scottish actor Ross McCall ended.

"They broke up over the holidays," revealed a source close to the couple. "They're both really sad about this. Even their friends are surprised."

I Know What You Did Last Summer star Jennifer and the Band Of Brothers actor had announced in November 2007 that they planned to wed after dating for two years.

Also looking at a solo start to the New Year is Medium star Patricia Arquette. The actress filed for divorce from her actor partner of more than six years, Thomas Jane. The couple, married in 2006 and have a daughter, Harlow, aged five.
