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."

My guess? Honig hasn't been paid.


I still have no respect for Steve Honig. He has told more lies on behalf of celebrities than the Lohans combined. And that's a lot!

Lilo will flip out over this, and really push for the restraining order against Mikey.

FOR MR.BOJANLES

LILO A NO-GO AT LE BARON

Le Baron nightclub told LiLo to just go — away.

Trouble magnet Lindsay Lohan was turned away from Andre Saraiva’s Chinatown hotspot Wednesday, where Bullett magazine was throwing a party for singer Cat Power. Our source says the rejection forced Lohan’s entourage — which included a “handsome mystery man” who wasn’t her rumored boyfriend Josh Chunn — to calm down the angry “Herbie Fully Loaded” star so they could still make a somewhat dignified exit

Pfffft! Don't worry Linsay. Dr. Phil will see some publicity and some bucks in making a public spectacle out of saving you lame ass. He and his clown posse should be along any day now.

For the person posting about the Radar story, are you pretending to be stupid or are you really that dumb? The SM5 $15k story came from National Enquirer, in case you don't know, the studio who made the movie Weinstein Co issued a statement saying the story was "definitely not true"
but I guess you don't want to hear the truth. Sad

@Its Nikki's bitches

Dear me, your pathetic folly knows no bounds.Errr let me see. Lindsay Lohan went to stay at her Long Island home on Wednesday with her mother, brothers, sister and grandmother as confirmed by @gossipdavid. All is well with the family. But if someone likes you wants to believe an unnamed source in a NY tabloid then go ahead, thats all haters have.

Oh look Crazy Susan running down anonymous sources again. If it was a positive story she would overlook the " anonymous" part.

Frakking hypocrite. Rags on everyone for doing exactly what SHE does herself.

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.
======================================
not only that Milo has his sidekick Jason Squatriglia harassing and monitoring Lindsay's friends on twitter. They were also watching Lindsay and her friends at their hotels as per Jason's tweets.

Ok, since Honig stated he did not quit because of Michael, and since he was paid to lie for Lindsay, and say what she tells him to say, I'd say the only reason left to quit would be money.

Funny he quit after the story ccame out that Lindsay tried to hide getting paid $150,000.
