Lindsay Lohan

Publicist Quits

Over Michael Lohan Beef

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

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."

Lindsay Lohan's Publicist Steve Honig Quits Amid Endless String of LiLo Debacles

by Alexis L. Loinaz Today 12:50 PM PDT

Even loyal supporters have their breaking point.

And Lindsay Lohan's besieged publicist, apparently, has finally reached his.

Steve Honig, who's steered his beleaguered client through one scandal after another after another, has quit as LiLo's trusty flack, E! News has exclusively learned.

"He's resigned as Lindsay's publicist Wednesday night," a source tells E! News exclusively.

Honig, however, declined to elaborate on why he's decided throw in the towel, telling E! News, "I'm not discussing this out of respect for my client."

No doubt the publicist, who's been employed by LiLo for about a year and a half, has had his work cut out for him. During his time under LiLo's dime, he's racked up enough crisis-management victories to fill up a bushel's worth of resumes.

Let us try to count the ways, shall we? (Bear with us if we miss something here.)

Lindsay Lohan, Dina Lohan allegedly have blowout fight, cops called to Long Island home

Under Honig's watch, the star passed out in a hotel room, landed in the hospital after a frightening car crash, allegedly trashed her trailer, got tangled up in a jewelry heist, was reportedly banned from a hotel for unpaid bills, got arrested for an alleged hit-and-run, was embroiled in a 911-worthy spat with mom Dina Lohan, unleashed a war of words with pop Michael Lohan and, most recently, was faced with a failed intervention attempt by Michael, supposedly with the support of her handlers.

Good luck to LiLo's next flack.

Trash - sounds like when the plan backfired, he tried to claim he wasn't a part of it when he really was. It's a publicist's job to LIE people.

I thought TMZ saw the emails/texts between MiLo and Lindsay's team? So, is MiLo right that Steve's a "f**king liar?"

Probably the most thankless job in Hollywood, having to constantly spin and lie to cover up for this lieing, thieving, drugging harlot with an entitlement complex and a death wish. I would have quit too.

I think the only way any of the Lohan children will ever have a chance in successfully making it through life is if they completely remove themselves from any contact with their parents. I think people will stop hating on Lindsay so much if she just stayed away from those lunatics AND the Clubs. Lindsay stay away from the clubs! It’s so embarrassing already. Its not your fault you have a wacked out mother and an insane sociopath for a father farther but it is your fault that you continue to let them humiliate you.
