Update — Lohan vs. Lohan, a thaw?

August 28, 2008


Lindsay Lohan’s paternal grandfather has died, which appears to have brought the actress and her father closer together after a public spat, according to reports on a few celebrity web sites on Friday.

Michael Lohan, the actress’ father, told the cable network E!that his father, Richard Lohan, died of cancer on Thursday.

“I was holding him, laying in bed with him, when he died,” Lohan told E!

“Lindsay did reach out to me. She sent me a message this morning. She said, ‘Now papa has found peace and maybe we can find peace in our lives, too.”

The message appears to show some warmth in the otherwise icy relationship between estranged father and daughter, and perhaps it portends a thaw. Time will tell.

Lindsay and Michael Lohan in recent days were caught up in a new war of words, this time centering on the 22-year-old Hollywood star’s relationship to gal pal Samantha Ronson.

“He’s out of control,” Lindsay Lohan told celebrity television show “Access Hollywood” on Wednesday. “I want him to stop hurting and talking to the media about the people I love,” she said.

Lohan also talked down her dad on her MySpace blog, as Ronson did on her page.

Lohan’s comments followed an interview Michael Lohan gave to E! earlier this week in which he criticized his daughter’s constant companion, Ronson, over rumors she was writing a book.

“She’s using my daughter,” Michael Lohan told E! “People never even knew who Samantha Ronson was until she met Lindsay. And now she’s writing a book? I am at wit’s end with this stuff.”

Meanwhile, if there is a thaw in the chilly relationship between Lindsay and Michael, the same cannot be said for Michael and his ex-wife, Dina, Lindsay’s mom. He told OK! magazine on Friday, “Let’s see if she has the decency and respect to bring my kids to the wake and funeral.”

So, we are still wondering, will the Lohans’ drama ever cease?

Wow–I didn’t think we were in the 1950′s anymore. Don’t Ellen & Vicky Christina Barcelona prove that this is acceptable. For a smart lesbian liberation commentary check out the dangerous romance written about by a Harvard Grad and real Romanian dancers “Caribbean Dreams: TRUE STORY of an Ivy League Couple who Bought a STRIP CLUB in the Caribbean” Go SamRo!!


that man is a monster if he really cared about lindsay he would be supportive and not trying to make her look bad when shes finally getting her life and career on track.
