Michael Lohan is never far from drama, and that kicked into high gear Monday night, just a few days after he entered Celebrity Rehab, and RadarOnline.com has exclusive video of Lindsay’s dad as he apparently tosses ‘White House Gate Crasher’ Tareq Salahi out of his apartment.
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Michael has checked into Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab, and one of his cast mates is Michaele Salahi. Her husband Tareq has been living in Michael’s West Hollywood apartment while she films the show.
On Monday night, Lohan was furious at Tareq, claiming he owed him rent for the apartment, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned. According to a source close to the situation, Tareq has promised to pay Michael $2,500 to stay in the apartment for three weeks. When the money wasn’t paid promptly, Michael left the Pasadena Recovery Center, with cameras in tow, and confronted Tareq at the apartment.
But was this all for show?
RadarOnline.com was on the scene when Michael returned to the apartment with a camera crew from Celebrity Rehab and the Pasadena Recovery Center to evict Tareq, and according to Lohan, he was successful.

“He didn’t pay the rent, he said he was paying the rent, he didn’t pay the rent. He said he would put stuff on his credit card and he lied about that,” Michael emphatically told RadarOnline.com after a thirty minute argument in the apartment.
Lohan was clearly angry at Tareq and ranted about the couple. “I truly believe that he did crash the White House party,” Michael said as he left the apartment.
However, when RadarOnline.com exclusively caught up with Tareq leaving the apartment building, he had a different spin on the situation.
“It’s entertainment, it’s reality TV. How much of the world of reality TV is real?”
He claimed that the confrontation was all for the cameras and wasn’t a real eviction.
“Michael has this personality for TV and he likes to make sure he’s highlighted.”
Tareq said his wife Michaele warned him that staying at Michael’s apartment would not be a good move and claimed that Michael created the drama while in the Recovery Center.
“He made a decision to get a little crazy on the set today and to get attention, that was his choice.”
He admitted that he and Michael had a deal and that he owed him money, but said that Michael “created a scene” and “a little entertainment” instead of getting the money from him.
Tareq has checked into a local hotel and Michael has returned to the Pasadena Recovery Center, but perhaps their next meeting will be caught on camera too?
