Grabbing as many minutes of fame as he can, Lindsay Lohan's concerned dad, ex-con Michael, appeared on FOX News Thursday, talking about his daughter's upcoming jail stint. Daddy Lohan became defensive when the anchor suggested he wasn't helping Lindsay enough.
"Don't tell me how much time I spend helping my daughter or going out to eat dinner, or how much time I spend in the f***ing gym," Michael shot back. He went on to melodramatically suggest that Lindsay's ordeal "could end in death."

Things have taken yet another turn for the worse in the saga of Lindsay Lohan and her father, Michael.
Papa Lohan paid a visit to his lawyer's office Monday morning to start paperwork seeking a conservatorship for the actress. He's been attempting to get his daughter into rehab for months with no luck.
On Thursday, Michael Lohan showed up to Lindsay Lohan's L.A. apartment with deputies to check on his younger daughter, Ali -- and things got ugly.
Michael left without Ali, 16, and Lilo went on a tweeting rampage, airing out assorted dirty laundry.
Michael Lohan was an uninvited guest at daughter Lindsay's apartment on Thursday -- with L.A. County Sheriff's deputies -- to check on his 16-year-old daughter, Ali.
TMZ is reporting that Michael convinced deputies to do a "welfare check" on his younger daughter, who is currently staying with Lindsay. Following the visit, law enforcement left and Ali stayed with LiLo.
Michael Lohan is making the media rounds again, but this time he held a news conference to reach out to his daughter regarding her alleged prescription drug use.
The publicity hound is urging Lindsay Lohan to enter rehab saying, she's "not okay" and told her enablers to "get the hell out of the way."
Sorry, Lindsay Lohan. Looks like your feud with dad Michael won't be over so fast.
Michael has been releasing recordings of his 22-year-old daughter's hysterical phone calls to urge her to get help for what he claims is a pill addiction.
Lindsay posted on Twitter last week that she hasn't "called him that many times ... so it will end sooner rather than later."
But on Sunday, Michael told the New York Post, "I have more recordings, which will further back up what I have said so far. I will release them. I will not stop until Lindsay goes to rehab."
Michael is also denying claims that he demanded a six-figure fee to release his daughter's tapes, in which she is overheard saying that no one cares about her.
"This isn't about money or getting paid -- it's about saving my daughter," he says.
Lindsay Lohan is not impressed by her father's accusations that she's using drugs and saying he wants conservatorship of her -- and the actress took to her Twitter to vent her frustrations.
"My father is a lunatic & doesn't even deserve such a title since he's never been around in my life other than when he'd threaten me & my family," Lohan, 23, wrote on her Twitter page.
Lindsay's rant continues, "He should be where he has always put himself after verbally abusing and physically abusing people all my life -- behind bars."
Earlier this week, Michael threatened to air tapes of conversations between himself and Dina, Lindsay's mother, discussing the actress' well-being. Lindsay told People magazine in a statement that she'd legally stop her father from releasing the tapes, saying, "We're going to stop it from airing. He is in violation of my order of protection. My attorney sent a cease-and-desist letter, and a copy of my order of protection I have against him. He is now in violation of my criminal order of protection. He harasses me, and calls my cell phone, which he is not allowed to call."
Lohan concluded her tweets with, "So much for having a 'dad'...I'm going to spend some time with the ones that love me & I love now."
