Lindsay Lohan says her dad is out of control

Lindsay Lohan’s ex con dad is talking to whichever media outlets will listen about how he disapproves of his daughter’s girlfriend, DJ Samantha Ronson. Lohan has cleaned up physically and emotionally under Ronson’s influence, but Micheal Lohan insists that she’s a “parasite,” calls her “controlling and manipulative” and says she’s like “a drug” that his daughter is addicted to. In fact, Micheal, who is currently engaged to a model just two years older than his daughter, says he’s so convinced of Ronson’s negative effect on his daughter’s life that he would “sacrifice [his] own life to get Sam out of Lindsay’s.”

Some of Micheal Lohan’s statements are contradictory. On one hand he says Sam is giving Lindsay booze while they’re together at Sam’s DJing gigs, but then he says it’s not about the alcohol but the antidepressants his daughter is on:

X17: Why is Samantha bad for Lindsay?
ML: She’s feeding Lindsay alcohol behind the scenes, but that’s really Lindsay’s fault for taking it — it’s not about drugs or alcohol. A person can be a drug and Sam is a drug. She’s very controlling and manipulative and it’s not a healthy relationship for Lindsay…

X17: What do you say about accusations from the media that you’re attacking Sam simply don’t like what has been portrayed as Lindsay’s gay relationship with her?

ML: That’s not the reason at all. Lindsay is fragile and Sam takes advantage of her and the relationship is too intense and too dramatic. Sam and Dina are probably the two worst people Lindsay could be around right now … along with her friend Patrick.

I mean, look at Sam … does she have an identity crisis or what? I mean, the way she carries herself, the way she dresses; she’s a slob.

As long as Sam’s in Lindsay’s life, Lindsay will never be able to reach the potential God gave her.

X17: The media have commented that Lindsay looks better; she looks healthy; she doesn’t appear to be drinking or doing drugs; she showed up to work on time for “Labor Pains.” By all accounts, she seems to be doing well. What are her problems or issues right now?

ML: It’s not about Sam giving Lindsay drugs or alcohol or anything — there are prescription drugs from doctors — psychotropic drugs, antidepressants — that have a serious effect on a person. And I would like to put that out there. These things can mess with a person’s mind.

I see some parallels between Britney and Lindsay — the instability, the domineering companion. Lindsay’s not in the state that Britney was or is, but there are minor similarities. Just because a person’s not abusing drugs or alcohol doesn’t mean they’re healthy. And Lindsay being with Sam is making matters worse.

I would sacrifice my own life to get Sam out of Lindsay’s.

You can see how Lindsay got so messed up in the first place coming from that family. Lindsay is in the healthiest relationship of her life and is the most together she’s ever been, but her father is unwilling to acknowledge it and keeps saying how awful Sam is. He even compares his daughter to Britney! He’s also blaming the medication that seems to be helping her. It seems like Michael objects to the fact that his daughter is in a same sex relationship, not that she’s with someone who is supposedly a bad influence. Lindsay was with a lot of male douches before she met Sam, and you didn’t hear her dad complaining about them.

Samantha Ronson is writing an autobiography, and Michael Lohan is accusing her of using her relationship with his daughter to become famous. There’s also speculation that goes along with any book written by someone close to a celebrity – that it will be a “tell all.” Meanwhile Michael is still fighting with Lindsay’s mom Dina over visitation issues and vows to drag her into court again.

Lindsay says her dad is out of control and just needs to stop hurting the people she loves:

“He’s out of control,” she told Access from the set of “Ugly Betty,” where she’s filming several guest appearances for the ABC show’s third season.

“I want him to stop hurting and talking to the media about the people I love,” she said.

In an interview with E! on Tuesday, Michael said Samantha was “using” his daughter after hearing rumors that the DJ might be writing a tell-all book.

“I’ve shut up about this long enough,” Michael told E! “She’s using my daughter. People never even knew who Samantha Ronson was until she met Lindsay. She was just some L.A. DJ. And now she’s writing a book? I am at wit’s end with this stuff. This is not in Lindsay’s best interest.”

Lindsay and her mom went out to dinner with Samantha and her mom a few nights ago. Micheal Lohan is bitching about that and saying his wife and daughter missed a family meeting with him and decided to go out to that dinner instead. You can see how they would avoid him when he’s so caustic and obnoxious. Maybe all his public bad mouthing is the reason they refused to meet with him.

Update: Samantha Ronson has responded to Michael Lohan’s accusations through her myspace. She says that she’s not writing a tell all and that he’s “desperate for attention”:

i really don’t want to say anything because i feel like he wins- he, being the man who is so desperate for attention that he goes to the media whenever possible- i know i am being used, i am just a pawn- easy to sacrifice in order to feed his addiction. I was angry when i first read his attack on me, but- for me- i believe that actions speak louder than words… so now i just pity him- i am not standing in his way- i am not the reason that he has no contact with his daughter- he is- his need to throw a tantrum for the whole world to hear is- i am not going to go into a play by play defense- i feel no need to publicly defend my role in lindsay’s life- i’m just sorry that she likes me more than him.

p.s. i’m not the one that is so lost that i need to use my relationship with lindsay to earn a living…. i am, always will and always have been here for her for her- not for anything else….so I think it’s safe to say that there is not now and never will be a tell all….. written by me….. when does your book come out mr. lohan?

I’m pretty impressed she responded that way. It’s mature and yet you can tell she was hurt and upset.

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson are shown out in LA on 8/21/08. Michael Lohan and his fiance, Erin Muller, are shown at the Social Like Magazine Party in Water Mill, Long Island on 7/4/08. Credit: Fame.

    How the f*k has this delusional no-visible-means-of-income lowlife persuaded someone to marry him?

  2. heehee says:

    Calling someone a slob and then referring to God in the same sentence– twisted heap of grey matter…

  3. reasonstobecheerfulpart2 says:

    How he persuaded her?

    Either a)money or b) He told her she’s the only woman who ever understood him, and she’s young enough to believe this c..p. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. RAN says:

    I second that Geronimo

  5. princess says:

    Is anyone else thinking that he is saying this stuff because he is hoping to get a conservatorship over Lyndsays money.
    That if he keeps going on making up stuff about how Sam is plying her with drugs some judge might believe it? I know it sounds like a stretch but I think he is jealous and a really sick man.

    I wouldn’t put anything past this guy. He should be happy for his daughter…not trying to destroy the relationship that she is in. Idiot.

  6. Bodhi says:

    I still can’t stand LL, but Sam is growing on me. That was a pretty good response. I don’t think anyone in the world gives a shit what Michael Lohan thinks about anything

  7. SolitaryAngel says:

    I’m impressed, also, with Sam’s mature response to this drivel from MLo–I think he suffers from chronic diarrhea of the mouth!

    And something tells me that “wit’s end” for him is a very homey, lived-in place. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Kaiser says:

    …And may the person with the fewest felony convictions win!

  9. silentA says:

    That woman is NOT 24. I’m 23, and I look old. But not that old.
    No way. No WAY.

    If I am wrong, then she is a very haggard 24 year old. Yuck.

    Sam looks nice with with brown hair.
    Wasn’t Michael Lohan praising how well Lindsay was doing recently?

  10. Skank Basher says:

    Sure Sam Ronson was hurt and upset by Michael Lohan’s rant. This Young woman obviously cares very deeply for Lindsay and it’s difficult when either parent of the person you love dislikes you, even a little bit, and especially when it’s entirely unfounded in reality. Looks to me like Sam’s the BEST THING that’s happened to Lindsay in a very long time, relationship-wise!

  11. Lola says:

    I have my issues with Samantha. I like her brother Mark but I cannot stand her. It didn’t help that she wore that T-shirt which had semi erect dicks. Also before this, she was part of the reason why Lindsay lost the plot. However, Lindsay’s father is just pure scum. Poor Lindsay. What do you do when you are filth surrounded by filth? I wonder.

    Before I forget, Sam is also famous because of Lindsay. Who would be taking her pictures if she was not with her? But she is right, atleast she does not live off that unlike Michael.

  12. Kayla says:

    Linds is a loser. With or without Sam. Linds family acts like poor white trash. They are not celebrities, but wannebes. Linds has no talent, is bisexual, will do anything for drugs and publicity. Her mother is a fame hwore joke.

  13. Nouvel says:

    OMG, he is such a FN A-HOLE !!!!!!!!!! What a loser. He hates the fact Lindsay isnt this poor pathetic person, that she is doing better and staying healthy and happy. What a douchebag for a father, most Dad’s would be so happy their child was doing better..

    FN A-HOLE MR LOHAN IS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. czarina says:

    I think Lindsay has a lot of potential and has not had the chance to really see what she can do. She is young and her family is awful. No wonder she turned to drugs to try to blot out whatever she couldn’t deal with.
    Because she was using drugs and alcohol, I don’t think it’s fair to try to assess her talents, until she’s had a chance to do some adult work with a sober mind. Maybe she ISN’T that talented, but it would be worth giving her a chance without all the crap.
    I applaud Sam Ronson’s response, but I think Lindsay herself should say something as well (beyong wishing her father would shut up).
    Princess–I think that was a very astute perspective on Michael Lohan’s recent press rants. It would not surprise me at all if this man was trying to gain control of his daughter (and saw Britney’s father as a parallel). Ugly, but for a con artist like this guy, not impossible.
    Fortunately, it is extremely remote that it could happen. Poor Britney needed to be hospitalized in the psych ward (twice?) before the courts took that kind of action.
    Basically, all this guy is doing is making a fool of himself and alienating his family.

  15. Rio says:

    While I think Samantha Ronson did give a mature response…honey, you’re 31-freakin’-years-old. CAPITALIZE YOUR FIRST-PERSON SINGULAR PERSONAL PRONOUN!

    Sorry. My inner grammar Nazi sometimes cannot be denied. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  16. Zoe says:

    Good point princess.

  17. nina says:

    Sam is beautiful

  18. Lauri says:

    Good for her…excellent response. This is the most stable LiLo has been in a long time; SR is obviously a good influence.

  19. CoCo says:

    Good for Sam! Someone should stand up to that scumbag a-hole…

    Here’s Lindsay’s response… She makes alot of good points;

  20. czarina says:

    Yes, Lindsay’s response is very genuine, I thought. I feel sorry for her. On the other hand, I hadn’t realized she was so close to her mother (whom she considers “wonderful”) and it makes me think that Dinah Lohan is not as bad as I assumed she was–at least as a mother.

  21. JaundiceMachine says:

    What a loving, supportive father.
    It’s a pity Lindsey is too drugged by her lesbian lover (sinful!) to hear such wise and prophetic words of warning from a man that obviously has her best interests at heart.
    Such thoughtful, mature observations – observations that can only be gleaned by a man who has lived a piteous, righteous, and unselfish life.

  22. Alecto says:

    How can he say that Sam is just using Lins to be famous and nobody would know who she is without Lins? That’s kinda like the pot calling the kettle black isin’t it? And his gf looks more like 34 instead of 24.

  23. Orangejulius says:

    Nothing more to add to the above justified bashing of Michael Lohan. Just wanted to say how good Sam is looking. The hair really suits her. She finally got rid of that stupid hat!

  24. insidescoop says:

    Did Lindsay get a boob job?

  25. Jeanne says:

    Her dad’s out of control, she’s out of control, the whole family’s out of control.
