Michael Lohan: I'm Not a Cheater!
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!"
