Michael Lohan on Fathering Ashley Horn: It's Not Cheating If You're on a Break …

Michael Lohan is adamant that he didn't cheat on Dina Lohan when he knocked up Kristi Horn during their marriage 17 years ago, because they were on a break.

MiLo's secret love child Ashley Horn was revealed on TV last week.

He long denied that he was the father, only to be put in his paternal place by a DNA test while the cameras rolled. It was unexpected and awkward, to put it mildly.

Now he's doing damage control amid backlash.

The father of Michael Jr., Cody, Ali and Lindsay Lohan - plus another baby soon with pregnant Kate Major - says Ashley wasn't the result of "cheating" or "an affair."

"Dina and I were separated and living separately at the time for 8 months," he tells TMZ.

Michael also says he saw Lindsay Lohan on Good Morning America and is calling BS on her claim that she was in the dark about the love child this whole time.

"Dina has been telling our children that Ashley is my daughter for years, without even knowing the results," he says. "So how could this be news to our children?"

We can't believe we're saying this, but ... Michael Lohan is right.

Michael Lohan: Maybe her mother's life revolves around the tabloids and reports, but mine doesn't. I am into setting a good example and doing good things that don't deceive or exploit my kids. But I will say this: While we were a family, you never even saw or heard a negative thing about any of us.
