Lohan's Father Takes Legal Action Against Perez Hilton
LINDSAY LOHAN's angry father has launched legal action against celebrity blogger PEREZ HILTON over lewd images the Internet gossip draws on photos of the MEAN GIRLS star.
Born-again Christian Michael Lohan has had enough of posted scribbles of penises and suggested incontinence on pictures of his daughter and he has sent Hilton, real name Mario Lavandeira, a cease and desist order, demanding that he stops.
Lohan staged a press conference on Tuesday (06Oct09) and insisted he's not going after the blogger to defend his daughter - he wants Hilton to stop posting all "obscene" images on his popular gossip website.
The determined dad said, "I'm taking legal action against Perez Hilton with, first and foremost, a cease and desist letter, so that he stops with the pornographic and the obscene material that he has on his website."
Lohan isn't the only celebrity furious with the blogger; Demi Moore threatened to take legal action against Hilton last month (Sep09) after he posted provocative shots of her 15-year-old daughter Tallulah on his website.
Moore took to her Twitter.com page to vent her anger about the pictures, accusing the gossip of flouting child pornography laws.
She fumed, "Expect another letter from my attorney, kitten," adding, "Clearly Perez Hilton isn't taking violating child pornography laws very seriously. He might not but there are a lot of people who do! Anyone who advertises follows or supports Perez supports violating child pornography laws!
"Let me ask all of you, what is it called when someone is telling people to look and focus on a child's 'boobs & a**' while providing photos? (It's) child pornography! Or just being a general pervert/creep. Disgusting! This is not a game. Children should not be exploited. They must be protected."
Hilton has already responded to Moore's comments, calling them, "libellous, defamatory, inaccurate and stupid".
