Lindsay Lohan’s jailed father Michael is so desperate to contact his tabloid-target daughter that he sent a handwritten letter to British rag The Sun. His rambling message of love warns Lindsay that she’s being taken advantage of by lecherous Hollywood, and seems to even blame her recent troubles on her bad relationship with him. He tells her to put her faith in God like he has done in hope of an early release:
“I can’t even begin to tell you how very sorry I am for causing you (and our family) the heartache and embarrassment I have.
“I hold you absolutely blameless for all that’s been said and portrayed, as I know it has been under the advice of others, to sway both the courts and public opinion.
“I also know the pain that comes with love, especially when two hearts and lives are divided. Sometimes we run Ã¢â‚¬â€ we seek to hide or just escape from the pain.
In the meantime, people are either whispering in our ear, giving self-serving advice, or out to protect their own interests.
“Unfortunately sweetheart, while you are so talented and blessed you have become their interest! As I told you all along, this would happen.”
“You are an amazingly blessed, talented, intelligent and loving person. Use it to do good! To set an example by putting God and his principles first. Your love for life and people is a gift.”
“I trust you, I believe in you and I will love and protect you until my dying breath, and if that’s what it takes so be it!”
“Please know how much I miss all of you. Stay strong my Angel! God bless you and stay strong!”
This gushing public letter from her dad is the last thing Lohan needs just after the news of her maybe-split with Harry went public. I don’t like Lohan, but I kind of feel sorry for her when she has to deal with stuff like this. Her mom parties with her while her dad is stuck in jail, trying to remind the public that he still exists and wants a chunk of her cash.
Here are a bunch of pictures of Lohan in California on Sunday. [via]
