Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan is not a high-priced escort, according to her father Michael Lohan.

Michael defended his daughter to TMZ in response to a tabloid magazine story that quoted him as allegedly saying the troubled actress was being paid to date rich men.

Star magazine quoted Michael as saying about Lindsay, "She is getting paid to date rich men."

The magazine also quoted the elder Lohan as saying his ex-wife, Dina, "is pimping [Lindsay] out.  It's disgusting."

Michael tells TMZ, "By absolutely no means did I ever make such a statement...ever."

"Sure, Lindsay and other celebs make personal appearances and get paid for it.  Sure, she and they get paid to go to birthday parties and other occasions.  But for sex?  Are you kidding me?  I would never say that because she would never do that and it never happened," he says.

Lindsay is believed to have earned at least $100,000 recently for a personal appearance at a New Year’s Eve party in London for Brunei’s Haji Abdul Azim.  He is third in line to throne of the small, Southeast Asian nation.

Report: Lindsay Lohan's Dad Called Dr. Drew for Intervention

Stefania D'Alessandro/Getty Images for amfAR(LOS ANGELES) -- Last week, Michael Lohan reportedly tried to stage an intervention for his daughter Lindsay Lohan at her home, but the effort reportedly crashed and burned when the cops were called on the would-be interveners for trespassing.

TMZ is now reporting that Michael looked to therapist Dr. Drew Pinsky to try to help Lindsay -- who her dad thinks has relapsed and needs rehab as well as a new set of positive influences.  However, the Celebrity Rehab host and therapist reportedly turned Michael down, saying Lindsay needed a lower-profile specialist, and recommended another expert to help.

So far, Lindsay's camp won't comment officially on the situation, though a "source" close to the actress insisted to TMZ that she's clean and sober.

Lindsay Lohan's Dad Tries to Stage Intervention for Her

Jonathan Leibson/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan didn't have a quiet weekend, thanks to her father.  He went to her home in Beverly Hills, Calif., in an unsuccessful attempt to stage an intervention for the Mean Girls star.

Michael Lohan tells E! News that he was concerned that she might be drinking again, so he and a few other people showed up to the home on Friday afternoon.  However, Michael says, a man who described himself as Lindsay's boyfriend refused them entry.  Police subsequently responded to a call regarding trespassers. reports Michael had consulted with Lindsay's manager and lawyers, who signed off on the intervention.  Michael reportedly told them in an email last month that he heard his daughter was "drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day," and suggested that she may have been taking Adderall.

Lindsay denied part of Michael's account on Twitter, writing, "I don't have a boyfriend. I have Chanel, Hermes and diamonds. X."

Her mother, Dina Lohan, who has an acrimonious relationship with Michael, tells E! News, "This sole act by my ex was not an intervention, nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by any member of Lindsay's family or her professional team of handlers.  It's all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again."

According to TMZ, Lindsay hopes to obtain an order of protection against Michael, with whom she was already upset for recording a conversation she had with him regarding a well-publicized argument she recently had with her mom.

Michael believed that Lindsay's alleged relapse may have caused her to miss post-production work on her film The Canyons

The film's screenwriter, Bret Easton Ellis, tweeted about her no-show last week, but a producer for the flick tells E! News, "Lindsay has been busy doing press for Liz & Dick.  Bret was jesting since he was going to the Chateau [Marmont] that night.  Inside joke between us all that has been misconstrued."

Liz & Dick is the upcoming Lifetime movie starring Lindsay as Elizabeth Taylor.

Report: More Hollywood Club Drama for Lindsay Lohan

Toby Canham/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Note to Lindsay Lohan: You may want to steer clear of the Smoke & Mirrors club at The Standard hotel in Hollywood.

Earlier this month, Lohan was accused of shoving a woman at the club.  On Wednesday night, reports, she was driven to the hotel by a friend who hit another car in a parking garage.  The Mean Girls star reportedly then called her father, Michael Lohan, who arrived and took her inside the club.

According to TMZ, the drama continued inside when a female patron made a "snide" remark about how Lindsay was "going clubbing with her dad."  The website says the actress yelled to the woman, "Shut the f*** up."  TMZ reports the woman responded by throwing a drink at Lindsay.  Daddy Lohan and Lindsay then left the club; he appeared on TMZ Thursday to give his side of the story.

TMZ notes that neither Lindsay nor her dad drank alcohol at the club.

Still Behind Bars: Michael Lohan Denied Bail

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(TAMPA) -- Lindsay Lohan's dad is still in a Tampa, Florida, jail following his two arrests last week. The St. Petersburg Times reports Michael Lohan was denied bail Saturday after he allegedly contacted his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Kate Major, in violation of the terms of his release in a domestic battery case involving the couple.

Lohan's attorney argued that Major had initiated contact with his client by trying to call him, saying she "induced the whole thing." Major denied the allegation, telling the judge Lohan called her five times while sounding "completely intoxicated."

Lohan, 51, appeared at the hearing via a video feed from jail, where he was sitting in a wheelchair and had a bandage on his arm. Police said he tried to escape cops prior to his arrest on Thursday by jumping from a balcony, crashing 32 feet below. Lohan was previously arrested Tuesday and charged with domestic battery in connection with an alleged confrontation with Major.

Lohan's attorney said his client was set this week to visit TV's Celebrity Rehab, on which he appeared, and participate in the promotion of a charity boxing event. He also intended to support his daughter at her scheduled court appearance in Los Angeles Wednesday after having her probation revoked earlier this month. Those plans are now up in the air due to his current predicament.

Lohan's persona problems apparently extend beyond Tampa to New York. reports there's an outstanding warrant for Lohan's arrest in Suffolk County, Long Island, because he's been accused of owing child support to a child in Montana he allegedly fathered.
