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."

The guy put up with all that Lindsay has done but quits because her father sends him a text message? I think he was looking for a way out and found one. Good luck to him. He'll need it to find a job after repping Lindsay!

Most people fire there Publicists for a change in agency or what not. Publicists run away from Lindsay train wreck Lohan. The whole Lohan family is nothing but freeloading garbage.

He might be out of a job but he'll no doubt live a lot longer. Chronically troubled young women like Lindsay almost always keep on goin, but those around them often become ill, so consider yourself lucky Mr. Honig.

I think Steve Honig is a nice enough guy but it looked like everyone and his mother was calling him. He had a job to do but the BS stories took up a lot of his time, having crazy Michael Lohan with his fantasy fiction can't have helped. Honig has other clients as well as Lindsay.Good luck Lindsay, I'm sure you'll do just fine girl and get that RO against parasite daddy!

really! really?    

Pretty sure any publicist would say that fault was due to anyone other than their client. After all, this man does want to work with other stars and no one would touch him if he said his client was a looney-tunes lush.

"Sources close to LINDSAY (MEANING Blohan or Dina) tell us, Steve's decision to quit had nothing to do with the actress ... just her dad."

If you think that Steve had it bad, think what Lindsey has to put up with.

First she has to dodge the TMZ flash cameras looking under her skirts everywhere she goes and if she dresses so that is not possible TMZ then badmouths her like they did to the Olson sisters.

Then she has to put up with the war between her father and mother and a raft of greedy people reaching for a hand out every where and everything she does.

Oh he quit Bc he knows she'll be dead soon and wants no liability. Don't blame him one bit actually. And the fact she has zero money by Hollywood standards is also true.
