Lindsay Lohan has broken her silence about her father's recent behavior, issuing a statement to RadarOnline.com condemning Michael Lohan for talking about her publicly.
Lindsay's unexpected statement left no doubt that after a long stretch of silence about her father's media presence, she strongly disapproves and wants him to zip it about the entire family.
"I am sorry that my father has continually chosen to speak publicly about our relationship, my mother, my siblings, and my professional team," Lindsay told RadarOnline.com in her exclusive statement.
"I am working through my recovery day-by-day and find his public media bouts unnecessary and damaging."
Her statement comes just after RadarOnline.com broke the news that Michael will be appearing on Celebrity Rehab. The actress did not connect her words to Michael's latest venture into the media potlight.
Lindsay returns to court on Thursday, March 10 on her felony grand theft case, and Michael has been vocal about that situation -- and more. Father and daughter spent time together in recent months and the Mean Girls star, 24, has been mum on her father's actions.
Michael has told the media his main priority is keeping Lindsay sober and bringing the family back together - yet Lindsay feels his behavior is having the opposite effect.
And this is not the first time the 24-year-old has had issues with her father. While in rehab it became apparent that, "Lindsay blames a lot of her problems and issues on her dad," a source close to the Mean Girls star told RadarOnline.com.
"His name came up constantly," the source said. "Lindsay has a lot of unresolved feelings and anger towards Michael."
Lindsay was told to come to grips with what role, if any, her dad Michael would play in her life once she returned home the source says.
