Stage dad Michael Lohan is responding to claims from daughter Lindsay that he cheated on ex-wife Dina while they were still married.
On Thursday's "Ellen DeGeneres Show," Lindsay Lohan says, "I don't believe in cheating on someone... I watched my father do that to my mother my entire life, so I really don't." The actress was responding to Ellen's asking if cheating is what caused the breakup between LiLo and Samantha Ronson.
In a statement to "Extra," Michael says, "It disturbs me that she still continues to take the focus off of herself and accuse me of cheating on her mother when I only did so when Dina and I were separated."
Michael claims he's "thankful" Lindsay is taking his advice and "presumably" getting her career back on track. He adds, "I truly believe that if she involves the right people in her life and does the right thing, her life and career will be back in order and come to even higher levels than it has before."
Lindsay's estranged father clearly still cares about his daughter. Michael continues, "I love her, I have faith in her and I know God is working in her life. I'm happy to see that she is getting back on the right track!"
After a warrant was issued for her arrest on Friday night, Lindsay Lohan headed to the most unlikely place for refuge -- Jack Nicholson's pad! Huh?
Lohan and her pal headed over to Jack's Hollywood home at 1:30 AM, where they eventually convinced a tenant -- who sounds a lot like Nicholson himself over the intercom -- to buzz them through the gate. LiLo's friend then proceeded to crash her Mercedes into the wall before entering the private home, where the girls eventually left at 4:30 AM.
The "Mean Girl" sought refuge after a warrant was issued for her arrest, reportedly because of a parole violation. Early reports pinned the reason for the warrant on the fact that Lindsay had left the state of California last weekend, heading to Las Vegas to hang out with deejay girlfriend Sam Ronson, but those rumors were patently false.
Lohan's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley had the warrant quashed today -- and claimed that the warrant confusion came from Lindsay switching alcohol awareness programs because of "personality issues."
Today, Pop Michael Lohan tells "Extra" that Ronson is the reason for Lindsay's trouble. "I see Lindsay's relationship with Samantha as playing Russian roulette. She's got a loaded gun in her hand, and unfortunately, Samantha's the bullet."
Don't miss Michael's full interview -- including his plea to LiLo -- tomorrow on "Extra."
Lindsay Lohan's father Michael has received word of the warrant out for his daughter's arrest -- and told "Extra" that he's concerned for the starlet.
"I am very concerned for my daughter. I love her. I wish the very best for her," said Michael, adding, "I've said it before and I'll say it again -- she has to be careful of the people around her. I worry about any of those negative elements in her life." Mr. Lohan has famously slammed LiLo's girlfriend Samantha Ronson and blamed her for Lindsay's problem -- which caused a rift between him and the "Mean Girls" star.
He continued, "I'm going to do everything I can to help her, including going to L.A. this week. I know that Steven and Danny Baldwin have reached out to her to help as well." The warrant issued for Lohan stems from a 2007 DUI arrest.
Lindsay Lohan's father has apologized for blasting the starlet's deejay girlfriend, Samantha Ronson.
"I definitely regret all the things I said about Samantha," Michael told New York magazine. "I'm a Christian. I should not pass judgment on anyone."
Papa Lohan had called Ronson a "dark, hideous and disgusting representation of humanity" and a "drug" in the past, and suggested that Sam used Lindsay for publicity. Ronson fired back, calling LiLo's dad "desperate for attention."
Michael told the magazine that he has learned going to the media isn't the best way to reach the "Mean Girls" star. "In the past, I felt that the best way to get to her was to speak out publicly -- and it was the wrong choice."
Lohan added that he's now in contact with LiLo -- and has decided to keep quiet about her personal life. "Family matters should be kept private -- I've learned that now." It's not easy living Lohan.
The 13-year-old girl who is purported to be Lindsay Lohan's half-sister has been revealed! Michael Lohan's alleged "love child," Ashley Kaufmann, is a Montana teen who lives with her mother -- and shares the same freckles as Lindsay.
Michael has admitted that he had an affair in 1995 with Ashley's mom, massage therapist Kristi Kaufmann, while he was separated from now ex-wife Dina.
"My lawyers are dealing with this," Michael told "Extra." "When we find out the truth we will deal with it in the appropriate manner."
