Lindsay's Dad Wants Her Off Drugs; Did Matthew Fox Cheat On Wife With Stripper?

  • Michael Lohan is still using media outlets to have conversations with his daughter Lindsay. Today he tells a paper:

"While I'm very happy that Lindsay is beginning to come clean, the truth of the matter is I went public when she hit rock bottom. She did not go rock bottom when I went public. And while I find her admissions of her experiences with alcohol and cocaine to be noble, the real problem still exists with the prescription drug use that the so-called 'addiction specialist', therapist and doctors are prescribing to Lindsay." And! "I will not stop (speaking out) until I finally get my daughter off of all the prescription drugs which she never needed." But since Lindsay has Tweeted that she plans to move to London, will her dad be able to keep up the constant meddling? [The Sun]
