"Lindsay is an amazing girl and we're just sort of taking a little breather right now," Morton told "EXTRA" correspondent Carlos Diaz, adding the two are "slowing things down."
The pair garnered a lot of attention from the paparazzi, something Morton took issue with. He tells Diaz, "There's just a lot of pressure sometimes, it can screw things up, the media getting involved, it always makes it more difficult."
Though his personal life may be having a rough patch, his Pink Taco restaurant chain is taking off. With one in Las Vegas and another in Scottsdale, AZ, Morton plans to expand the chain to at least six other locations, with one in Los Angeles opening in January 2007.
