Michael Lohan is coming to the defense of his daughter Lindsay Lohan. We know it’s hard to believe, since these two don’t usually see eye to eye! But this time he’s siding with her.
Earlier this week, Lindsay took a fall on the pavement while trying to walk with friends into someone’s house. She’d been out that night partying at new LA hotspot Trousdale, and paparazzi were on her like white on rice.
In a video captured by X17 Online, you can see Lindsay being chased by the photgs, and then takes a spill face first towards the pavement. Lindsay claims the paparazzi’s proximity to her caused the fall, but eyewitnesses say she was under the influence and was out of it.
We contacted Michael for a response, and he told Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY, “It's really easy to speculate and rely on sources, as to what people say or do, and believe me, from my own experience, most of the time it's twisted or wrong. Put yourself in Lindsay's shoes. If you were being badgered by paparazzi, trying to avoid them, while wearing high heals and shielding you face, what would you do? Do you think you might fall? Give me a break. Have a heart! When Lindsay is wrong , she is wrong, and I say it! But when she is right I will stand up for her.”
Michael, who has expressed his concern for his daughter’s safety in the past, is now distraught over it, and planning on doing something about it. “I am saying this once and mark my words,” Michael told Hollyscoop. “If the people and paparazzi cause any harm to my daughter, heart attack or not, I am on the next plane and they are going to deal with me and my security team.”
Michael isn’t kidding either. He added, “If you doubt me, contact "Tako" at www.sickassocycles.com and ask him or Lindsay. He has already been called and is waiting to leave. Hell may not have the fury of a woman's scorn, but it can't compare to the love and sacrifice a father has for his kids/family.”
Maybe Michael isn’t that far off, and Lindsay really should have a bodyguard with her. She refuses to stop going out every night, and then gets pissed at the paparazzi for following her. So since staying home is clearly out of the question, maybe Tako should jump for a little while!
Check out the video--it looks to us like Lindsay fell on her own. What do you think?
