Teen actress Lindsay Lohan's father has slammed his daughter's
representatives, accusing them of keeping him away from his daughter for more
than two months.
Over the weekend (21/22AUG04), Michael Lohan enjoyed a tearful reunion
with the 18-year-old FREAKY FRIDAY star at Hollywood hotspot KOI, where they
were joined by the actress' boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama and hotel heiress PARIS
Michael, who is separated from Lindsay's manager-mother DINA, has a long
list of legal woes, stemming from several assault charges, but he's been
particularly hurt by the lack of access he's been allowed to have to his own
He says, "Her mother, Dina, and I have tried to distance her from it.
Disney and other studios have such an investment in her.
"However, I feel her employees shouldn't try to keep her away from me. She
didn't even know I had come to visit her on the set until I told her later."
Michael says he told his daughter, "I've wanted nothing to do with your
career other than see you happy. You mother can have all the fame and glory. I
just want to be your best friend."
He says Lindsay responded, "You've always been my best friend. I just
don't want any more of this arguing."
