Michael Lohan: Lindsay's 'Out of Control,' Sam Ronson's to Blame

Fathers and daughters have their disagreements. But usually their shouting matches play out on opposite sides of a locked bedroom door, not through the press.

Of course, Michael and Lindsay Lohan must be used to this by now. On Wednesday, in the latest chapter of their years-long estrangement, she told "Access Hollywood": "He's out of control. ... I want him to stop hurting and talking to the media about the people I love."

Lindsay was responding to his assertion to E! that Samantha Ronson, her BFF, is "using my daughter."

Thursday, Michael shot back at the 22-year-old rehab alum/actress-on-the-mend.

"Who's out of control? Whose life is out of control? Give me a break," he told ABCNews.com. "Going from place to place, being dragged around by Samantha so she can make more money off of Lindsay being there when she spins ... She's gone from making $7 million to less than a million a movie. Who's out of control?

"I go to church," he continued. "I go and help people in rehab. That's control. How can she say I'm out of control?"

Michael said Dina, his ex-wife and Lindsay's mom, first alerted him that Ronson, a 31-year-old DJ, is a bad influence on Lindsay. But he claimed Dina refuses to share her true views because she wants to continue to share the spotlight with Lindsay.

"I want Lindsay to be in a good place. When I started looking at what Samantha was doing, dragging Lindsay to clubs, drinking around Lindsay ... Samantha is one of the biggest problems in her life," Michael said. "That's what Dina told me. I'm reacting on what Dina said, but then Dina steps out of the picture because she wants to look like the good guy."

"Dina's a two-face," he continued. "She wants to try to look good and stay on Lindsay's good side instead of being a good parent. I don't give two hoots about my relationship with Lindsay as a friend. One day she's going to turn around to me and tell me, 'Daddy, you were right.'"

And until then, it's all-out war. Michael claimed he's on the verge of releasing text messages and recorded phone conversations with Lindsay and Dina that prove he's the good guy in this Hollywood family drama.

"If they're going to say I'm lying, I'm out of control, I'm going to show that they're lying and they're out of control," he said.
