Michael Lohan is sorry for hurling insults at Samantha Ronson in the media

A couple of weeks ago, stage dad from hell Michael Lohan went on a tabloid rampage. His target: the girlfriend of his daughter, Samantha Ronson. He sent off defamatory e-mails to every tabloid that would listen, accusing her of controlling and enabling his daughter Lindsay and even making fun of her looks and the way she dresses. Lindsay fought back via her MySpace blog and even looked into filing a protection order against her dad, whom she said needed to be on medication to control his moods. Well, maybe Michael took her advice – because now, he’s issued an apology. Well, sort of.

Michael Lohan has apologized for calling Lindsay’s girlfriend Sam Ronson “a drug” earlier this summer.

“I definitely regret all the things I said about Samantha,” Michael told New York magazine at a book party Oct. 21.

“I’m a Christian,” he added. “I should not pass judgment on anyone.”

In September, Michael went off on Ronson, calling her a “dark, hideous and a disgusting representation of humanity.” Lindsay snapped back, calling her dad a “coward” on her MySpace celebrity blog.

Michael says he’s now learned not use the media to reach out to his daughter.

“In the past, I felt that the best way to get to her was to speak out publicly,” Michael said. “And it was the wrong choice.”

Michael says he’s in contact with Lindsay these days, and recently spent four days with his college-aged son, Michael.

As for providing more details on Lindsay’s life, Michael is keeping mum.

“Family matters should be kept private,” he said. “I’ve learned that now.”

Notice he doesn’t take back anything he said about Ronson- he just wishes he’d said these hurtful things privately. What a guy. It only took his daughter practically disowning him to learn that “family matters should be kept private.” Could it be that Michael is backtracking after rumors that Lindsay and Samantha are on the rocks, and that his daughter may not be a lesbian after all?

    Is that the new all out, get out clause now? “I’m Christian.”

    No, you’re an idiot calling yourself a Christian to cover your own biliousness.

    Or maybe he actually saw Lindsay is happy and healthie with Samantha?Hmm.I dont believe anything this man says,Lindsay said she doesnt speak to him no matter what he says.Or maybe he is out of money and needs them for his wedding?

    Ugly inside and out. I wish that actually was a spike sticking into his loathsome head in the main pic.

  8. Feebee says:

    Why he bothered to clarify is beyond me but I will give him a 1/2 a brownie point for not pretending he didn’t mean what he said.

  9. Anne says:

    ML has just realised she will never give him money ever again and wants to now seem contrite. Scumbag.

  10. Kristin says:

    What a disgusting homophobe.

  11. heehee says:

    Another way to get in the headlines. typical psychopath: they hurt you, then say they’re sorry and please forgive me, so they can do it again.

    “Family matters should be kept private,” he said to US FRIGGIN’ WEEKLY.

    Christ on a cracker. I loathe this man.

  13. vdantev says:

    Yeah, sorry it didn’t garner him a fat paycheck or a TV show. 🙄

  14. Michael Lohan is on my private list of people that I wonder why they were ever born…

  15. Codzilla says:

    What a disgusting and pathetic man.

  16. Ophelia says:

    God he is so *obviously* only offended bc she’s with a woman. He didn’t make a big deal about LL when she was screwing every guy she met. And he’s just hiding behind religion, hoping nobody will call him out on being such a mean person bc it’s “not the Christian thing to do” so he can turn that same phrase around on them. Ugh, I hate this guy.

    Is Sam suing him or something? I wish.
