Lindsay Lohan is getting by with a little help from her friends ... and a yacht captain doesn't hurt either when you're dealing with a broken engagement.
Lindsay popped up on board a boat in Sardinia, Italy on Tuesday, clearly looking to put some space between herself and fiance Egor Tarabasov. As we've reported, she fled London after the weekend blow up where she accused Egor of strangling her -- and police responded to their apartment.
LiLo admitted she made a mistake when she exposed the fight -- she called it "private matters" -- by blasting it all over social media. She says she's now taking time for herself ... all while staying in touch with her 7 million followers.
