The person who booked Lindsay Lohan on the Late Show with David Letterman this week without authorization was none other than her dad. Naturally.
Michael Lohan says he signed her up to read the Top Ten list after getting the green light from Lindsay herself ... apparently Lindsay saw it differently.
Right after announcing LiLo's appearance, CBS issued a retraction this morning, explaining that some impostor booked her without her authorization.
Letterman's people said that someone "purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's" reached out to them and made the booking, but did not reveal a name.
Lindsay did not explain this fiasco in much detail, but Tweeted late last night that she NEVER agreed to do the show and apologized for the confusion.
Michael says he was behind it, that he got the idea after Dave cracked a joke at Lindsay's expense during Friday's "Top 10", and Lindsay was into it.
Again, perhaps he could have checked with Lindsay? Or did he and get jerked around by the recalcitrant star and/or members of her "camp"?Michael says Lindsay "knew full well" about the booking and even transportation from the L.A. studio, where she would do the bit via satellite.
He insists everything was good until Lindsay's reps shut it down.
Naturally, the oft-estranged MiLo is pissed, complaining to TMZ that "Anything positive that I bring into her life ... [her people] try to nix it."
