Lindsay Lohan’s Siblings Speak Out About Dad Michael
Actress Lindsay Lohan is in the middle of a major falling out with her father, Michael Lohan, and now siblings Mike, Ali and Dakota are showing their support for the “Liz & Dick” star. “Extra” has statements from all three family members.
Sister Ali pleaded, "Take this as your other daughter 's plea to an absent father. I have always tried to stay out of the press because it hurts me to see how you malign my mother. But in this instance, I am breaking my silence. Please stop waging your own personal war against my family. We don't need you to intervene because we can take care of ourselves without you, as we have been all these years.”
LiLo's younger brother Michael Jr. added, "I think it's unfortunate that the public had to be unwittingly invited into the lives of my family members due to my father's lies. That being said, I think everyone can understand and see why my sisters, brother, mother and I do not associate with him anymore."
Dakota also weighed in, saying, "I have no good memories of my so called father. He has never been part of my life, and needs to leave my family alone!"
Trouble started between Lindsay and Michael following an attempted “intervention” at her Beverly Hills home on Friday.
A source at the scene said, "I couldn't help but feel Lindsay's pain. She felt threatened and frightened by her father's mere presence at the house. And it is clear to me, that any problems she may have cannot be solved by her father."
In addition, a close friend revealed, "I feel so, so sorry for Lindsay. Her father is a very scary, angry man. We are not drug addicts and alcoholics. We are here for Lindsay. Believe me, she doesn't want anything to do with her dad."
Mother Dina Lohan told “Extra,” “This sole act by my ex was not an intervention nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by any member of Lindsay's family or her professional team of handlers. It's all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again. It's sad and I hope he stops masquerading as her father in public and starts acting like one in private."
