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."

Linds griefed by his office Wednesday, demanding that he write that she is "in talks" to star in "Titanic 2: Thought I Was Dead?". When the smoke finally cleared (as well as it could), Honig's diamond wedding ring had disappeared from his desktop while he was distracted by one of Linds' "team". He's been married -happily - for "close to" 20 years.

Last straw. Do the math - it's all on video.

I have to laugh at the haters putting their own spin on this LMAO! By Steve Honig saying his reason for quitting wasn't "purely" because of Milo, it means that Milo was the main reason.

If she doesn't have a publicist anymore, does it mean that we'll hear less of her??? Hoping!!!

Trust me, he quit because his client is a nutcase and he threw his hands up, not because of MiLo. Everyone who has worked with her has quit. She will drive one to a rubber room eventually. Hell eve Shawn Holley wanted to stop representing her but was in too deep representing her in court that she had so stick with this nitwit. Plus, I do agree that he probably was not paid as well. She stiffs people and steals everything she can get those filthy fingers on.

A Dr Samuels called Michael Lohan out on a show last night, the Doctor told the truth and what he said about Milo is on public record, Milo went crazy, look at Milo's twitter page now and tell me Milo is of sound mind, he's vicious, dangerous and outta his mind.

Unlike you,Crazy Susan, Delimer and the rest of the sycophantic nutjobs who spend your entire lives spinning the negative stories.
.
To wit anonymous sources only matter when it's positive.
.
If it's a positive story it's NOT a non-story for hjits (ie shoplifting in a surf shop for little druggie.)
