Lindsay Lohan

Publicist Quits

Over Michael Lohan Beef

10/25/2012 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

091912-lindsay-lohan-tmzLindsay Lohan's longtime publicist Steve Honig has called it quits -- and TMZ has learned, it was all over tension with Lindsay's dad.

Michael Lohan tells us, he butted heads with Steve big time in the weeks leading up to his Lindsay intervention on Friday -- but things came to a head over the weekend, when Steve released a statement saying Lindsay's management team had nothing to do with Michael's plans.

Michael flipped out on Steve over the statement, calling him a "f**king liar" in a text message.

Sources tell us, Steve threw in the towel last night -- quitting for good -- nearly two years after he signed on to be Lindsay's publicist.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us, Steve's decision to quit had nothing to do with the actress ... just her dad.

Steven and Lindsay have been through a lot together -- Lindsay's jewelry heist, her numerous car accidents, health scares, and 911 calls.

Steve tells us he didn't quit purely over MiLo, saying ... "Michael wishes he were that important."

Michael Lohan is a lunatic. No one should have to put up with his abuse. Steve Honig said Lindsays management team had NOT aligned with Michael Lohan and that tipped Milo over the edge, he then started abusing Honig. People can NOW see what a mad POS Michael Lohan is.

Did anyone see the JVM show last night? a doctor on the show called Michael Lohan out and made Milo look like the freak he is, a liar, a drunk and drug taker. Milo has been on a twitter rant at this doctor today. Glad someone called out this douchebag at last.

Lindsay has (or had) a publicist? Considering that someone would advertise as being her publicist must in turn... be a bad publicist.

Prior to Steve Honig Lindsay had been without a publicist for approx 18 months, this is no big deal, it will save her some money until she finds another strong enough to deal with lunatic Milo.

I think since Delmar said she would not want to work as Lindsays new publicist, maybe Red Cloud would. Then everyone in the world could get a good laugh out of him!

This doesn't make sense to me. If he has no problem with Lindsay then don't talk to Michael Lohan. She was his client not him, why should Michael Lohan even have Steve Honig phone number, refuse to talk to him. But I don't blame him for not wanting to deal with this messed up family.

Who. The F. Cares.

Look for the next Li-Ho update to be about when she last clipped her toe nails, at the rate TMZ's obsession with this skankk is going.

I'm sure it would be difficult to deal with Michael. But I seriously doubt that's all there is to this story. Weekly, if not daily, this girl needs a publicist to put a positive spin on bizarre, erratic behavior. It just can't be worth the time and energy. And her job offers aren't pouring in, so the money will soon be gone.
