Michael Lohan is no stranger to a press conference, interview or making headlines, but according to Linday Lohan’s father, he’s done talking to the media about his daughter and the rest of the Lohan clan – at least according to his new statement to the media.
“After serious thought and conversation last night, with someone who means a lot to me. I am making this statement and fully intend on living by it,” Michael said in a statement to Access Hollywood. “With all due respect to those who have both gotten on my nerves for reporting things that weren’t true, (as well as things that were), I want to make a public statement that I will not be commenting on ANYTHING relating to my daughter Lindsay, or ANYTHING my ex-wife Dina, or any ‘sources’ related to her, might say.”
Lindsay’s estranged father went on to apologize to his children and ex-wife.
“After all the things said and the incidents which have transpired, I realize that no matter how wrong or right I may have been, at the end of the day, I was wrong for offending my ex-wife and my children. Because of the spotlight and scrutiny we have been under, as well as my own ‘pride,’ which has caused pain to my mother, (deceased father), brother, sisters and their sibling, I realize how my statements and actions have had a ripple effect on all of them,” Michael’s statement continued. “If it was me alone, it would be one thing, but I’m not. The things I have said and done, have cased hurt, pain and embarrassment for all of them.
“That being said, I make this statement in humble supplication. And NO MATTER what accusations, lies or conjecture are disseminated to the public, about me, for the sake of the ones I love and with hope of creating peace, I WILL NOT respond, in ANY way, to what is said or done, to me… MY family’s health and well being matters too much,” Michael added in his statement. “For the sake of those I offended, I apologize and ask their forgiveness. But even if they can’t find it in their heart to forgive, like I forgive them. I KNOW that God will have the last word and defend me in His own way… so please refrain from calling or contacting me.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Lindsay is currently in rehab at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., where Michael reportedly attempted to visit his daughter. The actress is due in court on Friday in Los Angeles, where judge Elden S. Fox will decide if she will be sent back to jail for violating her probation.
