Lindsay Lohan's father Michael is said to be using her to stay in the spotlight.
The 'Liz & Dick' actress's mother Dina Lohan has claimed that her ex-husband only attempted to stage an intervention with their daughter - who reportedly failed to show up for work on the set of her new movie 'The Canyons' this week - because he wants to be famous himself.
Dina told gossip website TMZ: ''This sole act by my ex was not an intervention nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by any member of Lindsay's family or her professional team of handlers.
''It's all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again. It's sad and I hope he stops masquerading as her father in public and starts acting like one in private.''
Michael tried to stage an intervention at his daughter's home in Beverly Hills on Friday because he fears she has relapsed and is drinking and using drugs again.
He claimed he was worried about the 26-year-old star following a string of troubling incidents recently including a huge fight with her mother Dina and said he did not involve Dina in the intervention because it would be ''like the blind leading the blind''.
However, Michael's attempts at an intervention did not go well with Lindsay phoning the police on him and he claimed she also kicked out her boyfriend who tried to reason with her.
However, Lindsay insists she is single, tweeting: ''I don't have a boyfriend. I have Chanel, Hermes and diamonds. X (sic)''
Lindsay and her mother recently had a furious bust-up where the actress claimed Dina was taking cocaine but later retracted her allegation.
Sources close to Lindsay said she has not relapsed and Michael is only upset because she cut him out of her life after he taped their telephone conversation during her argument with Dina and made it public.
