Her family members all commented on the post, with mom, Dina, writing, "So sorry my lil princess. He's always with you, watching over you baby." Her siblings and father posted emojis.

Lohan and Morton attended the 2006 premiere of Lohan's film, "Bobby," at the Venice Film Festival. He had also been romantically connected to Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore, People reports. He used to also be the owner of West Hollywood hotspot Viper Room.

Morton was the son of Hard Rock Cafe and Hotels co-founder, Peter Morton, and his grandfather was Morton's The Steakhouse founder, Arnie Morton.

"Harry’s family is devastated," a source told Page Six. "They believe his sudden death is related to an unforeseen medical issue, but it is too early to say."

People reports that Morton's half-sister, Domino Harvey, tragically died of an overdose at the age of 35 back in 2005.

Morton's restaurant chain, Pink Taco, released a statement mourning his death.

"We are saddened by the passing of Harry Morton, the founder and former owner of Pink Taco," the statement read. "Harry was a visionary and restaurateur ahead of his time, and his contributions, both professionally to our brand and personally to those he worked with, were numerous. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends during this difficult time."
