Lily Allen got an insight into the pitfalls of social networking after she received an online scolding from Lindsay Lohan's father Michael - while she was hanging out with his actress daughter.
The British singer recently took to her page on the Twitter website to tell fans she was spending time with the Mean Girls star in Los Angeles.
But she didn't expect her posting to be read by her pal's dad - who promptly reprimanded her for her partying habits.
Allen tells Australian TV host Rove MCManus, "I've only been on Twitter for like a month or something but the other day I was in Los Angeles and I hung out with a friend of mine, Lindsay Lohan, and I got a Twitter from her father going, 'Dear Lily, I think you have an alcohol problem that needs to be addressed.' From Michael Lohan! I was like 'Leave me alone!'"
