Lindsay Lohan’s friends are jumping to her defense following her father’s impromptu press conference on Tuesday.
In response to Michael Lohan’s claims that his daughter needs immediate rehab to treat an alleged addiction to prescription medication, Lindsay’s close friend and business partner Jenni Muro tells RadarOnline.com exclusively:
“As one of Lindsay’s closest friends, business partner, and former day-to-day manager… the news of any type of press conference saddens me for the simple fact that this is her FATHER. I normally do not comment or engage publicly, but it is important for people to understand how inappropriate today’s actions are. As far as the media, public, and fans are concerned; Lindsay is working on numerous projects and anyone who makes public judgments of her, it affects her more than personally. It affects her ability to do more work and prosper in all regards. I stand by my friend, always have and always will.”
Tuesday’s press conference is just the latest in what’s become a ping-pong game of he-said, she-said between Michael and his family.
Lohan has long claimed that Lindsay needs rehab to treat her addiction to prescription meds and said today that he plans to fly to Los Angeles and sit down with her privately so he can convince her of his plan to take her home to Long Island and put her in a treatment center.
