Lindsay Lohan

Publicist Quits

Over Michael Lohan Beef

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."

I doubt Michael Lohan's ability to get in touch with anyone working with or for his daughter Lindsay Lohan. He is a big enough loser to buy into whatever some faker is telling him.

If Michael Lohan said he butted heads with Steve Honig then that proves Steve wanted nothing to do with that dumb intervention. Milo said the management team were on board, Steve said there were NOT aligned with Milo. I guess Milo went mad because someone had the guts to call out his BS.

God he really manages to make life so much worse for her. Its already bad enough without his help, and he just makes it that much worse. Is it any wonder she can't get her life together with people like this? He makes it almost impossible...he ended up throwing her entire team under the bus, ensuring that basically NO ONE will be able to get close enough to her to get her to go to rehab and do the right thing...now people are even quitting thanks to her lunatic father. Bravo michael, you're a failure as a father and you also just fail generally at EVERYTHING in life...a grade A f'ckin moron. Congrats on that.

Dina is still the bigger POS, and she has exceptional parasitic skills. Wonder if that is an innate talent or perfected one?

I hear that Sam Lutfi is looking for work! That Honig would quit because he doesnt like Lilo's dad is absolutely ridiculous after all the other crap he's had to swallow working with this girl. Theres something else to this story.

Steve Honig has locked his doors, disconnected the phone, and is hiding underneath his desk. Poor Honig can be heard by adjacent neighbors, muttering to himself, ITS NOT MY FAULT, ITS NOT MY FAULT over and over again. The men in "the little white coats" have been called and all should be well soon . . . .

What does it say about relationships in Hollywood when 'nearly two years' is a 'longtime' arrangement?

Lindsay Lohan's publicist worked endlessly to handle the scandal continually surrounding the troubled actress and RadarOnline.com has learned he finally had enough and has quit.

Steve Honig has been Lindsay's publicist for nearly a year and a half, but resigned on Wednesday night.

The publicist didn't give any reason for leaving Lindsay except to say, "I'm not discussing this out of respect for my client."

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Lindsay was most recently accused of swiping $15,000 worth of wardrobe from the set of Scary Movie 5 — not to mention her father Michael trying to stage an intervention with his daughter last week because he's worried she's partying too much, a fight with her mother Dina after a night of partying together in which the cops were called, being arrested for a hit-and-run in New York City, allegedly trashing Elizabeth Taylor's original trailer, being accused of stealing jewelry from a house party and was temporarily banned from the Chateau Marmont for an outstanding $46,000 bill.

Michael Lohan is sending texts to Lindsays people threatening and harrassing them, he is even threatening her friends on twitter, at on point on twitter he threatened to kidnap Lindsay saying he would drag her kickin and screaming. Michael Lohan is definitely out of control and needs to be sectioned, he is clinically insane.


There will be no problem for Lindsay obtaining the Restraining Order.
