(Newser) – Despite having just been through a tumultuous weekend, Lindsay Lohan says she was blindsided by her breakup with Samantha Ronson, Access Hollywood reports. “It came out of nowhere,” LiLo tells Ellen DeGeneres on today’s show. “I had no idea what was going on.” Lindsay denied cheating on Sam and said they're now “friends,” adding that she hopes for a reunion “when we're fully in the right place.”

“I feel like I want to get my career back in shape,” she says. “When people are together so much it gets really difficult and you forget who you are because you’re more concerned about being with the other person. I think it’s been really good for me. I thought it would be so much harder and it hasn’t been.”
