Lindsay Lohan's World: Family Rallies After Split

Lindsay Lohan says she's been in "absolute hell" since her breakup with DJ girlfriend Samantha Ronson, but her life before Ronson was hardly heaven.

The initial buzz surrounding Lindsay Lohan after her 2004 hit "Mean Girls" was that she was one of the most talented young actresses in Hollywood. But that soon gave way to headlines about her hard partying, multiple run-ins with the law and stints in rehab.

Her divorced parents publicly fought about what was best for her, but they were far from perfect role models -- dad served time behind bars for stock fraud, DUI and assault, and mom was often seen out partying with her daughter.

Now, without the girlfriend that she's been nearly inseparable from for nearly a year, it's no wonder the 22-year-old singer and actress told Us Weekly that she feels "so alone."

Her family members, however, are making it clear that they are there for her.

"We'd all like to reach out to her," her paternal grandmother, Marilyn Lohan, told People magazine Wednesday. "We're all here for her and we'd love to see her."

Her father, Michael Lohan, told ABCNews.com this week that he plans to get out to Los Angeles as soon as possible to see her. "I'm waiting to hear when Dina is leaving, so I can replace her," he said of his ex-wife, who, along with Lindsay Lohan's little sister, Ali, has been with her since the Ronson breakup.

"I don't plan on going to clubs and bars with Lindsay," Michael Lohan said, taking a swipe at his ex. "Dina's got to stop the nonsense. It can't be about her anymore. It's about our daughter and helping her to stabilize her life. I plan on getting her involved in the right thing."

Though he doesn't believe that his daughter has returned to drinking, Michael Lohan said he is "concerned with more than anything with the emotional torment that's she's going through. A breakup is very emotional. It's a lot of pressure when you really love someone. It's a really hard time for her."

Michael Lohan, who has been campaigning for months for his daughter to end her relationship with the 31-year-old Ronson, said, "Lindsay needs the right people in her life."

Just who are those people? ABCNews.com takes a look back at the last few years of "La Vida Lohan" and the colorful cast of characters surrounding her.

Lindsay Lohan: Born to Be in Movies

Born in July 1986 in New York City and raised on Long Island, Lindsay Lohan has been in front of the camera since the age of 3, when she broke into showbiz as a model. She appeared in more than 100 print ads for Toys "R" Us, Calvin Klein and Abercrombie Kids and more than 60 commercials, including a Jell-O spot with Bill Cosby.

At age 10, she landed a role on the soap opera "Another World" and the following year starred in her first big-screen role playing identical twins who try to reunite their divorced parents in Disney's 1998 remake of "The Parent Trap."

In real life, Lindsay Lohan was playing a similar role for her parents, who separated for the first time when she was 3.
