A quick/ridiculous/nauseating rewind:
- Lindsay and Dina Lohan got into a blowup at 4 a.m. Tuesday, following your basic mother/daughter night out at a NYC nightclub.
- Lindsay responded by calling her dad and explaining how loco her mom had gone and how she was totally on drugs.
- Lindsay then called TMZ, backtracked on any drug-based allegation, referring to the fight with Dina as "normal" mother/daughter stuff (like clubbing until 4 a.m.!) - and went off on Michael for making her phone call to him public.
Following along? Okay.
So how does Michael Lohan feel about all this?
"This is just another manipulation by Dina to control Lindsay. Dina is just using Lindsay to cover her tracks," Lohan tells TMZ, adding:
"Why is it that every time someone nails Dina doing something wrong, either on camera or on tape, they are always lying?"
As for his daughter's claim that her father is now dead to her? Michael thinks nothing of it.
"I know Lindsay loves me and I love her very much."
