Harry Morton, Lindsay Lohan 'Taking a Breather'
September 28, 2006

Lindsay Lohan's romance with hunky 25-year-old Harry Morton, heir to the Hard Rock fortune and the force behind the ever expanding red hot Pink Taco restaurant chain, has topped headlines for weeks.

Just days after reports spread that they broke up, Lindsay was out on the town sporting a Team Harry hat. So have they really split?

For the first time, Harry set the record straight about all the romance rumors with the lovely teen queen, right here on "Extra."

"Lindsay is an amazing girl," Harry said. "We're just sort of taking a breather right now and slowing things down."

But the whirlwind summer romance was anything but slow, as the couple traveled the world. From partying in Vegas, cuddling up in Hawaii or glamming it up in Venice, Lindsay and Harry didn't hide their mutual adoration.

Over lunch at Harry's newest Pink Taco restaurant in Scottsdale, Ariz., the hunky bachelor cleared up questions about shopping for a ring.

"You know, Cartier sells a lot of other things other than an engagement ring," Harry joked. "I was buying a lighter. It's going to ruin the whole engagement conspiracy."

Conspiracies aside, we had to find out: was Harry going to pop the question to Lindsay in Hawaii?

"That never happened, none of that happened," he said.

So what did happen? Harry told "Extra" it was hard to have a relationship in the glare of the media spotlight.

"Just a lot of pressure sometimes can screw things up," Harry said simply. "And the media getting involved always makes it more difficult."

But is it really over for good?

"We need a little space. Other than that, things are great," Harry confidently said.
