"My father is a lunatic & doesn't even deserve such a title since he's never been around in my life other than when he'd threaten me & my family," Tweeted Lindsay, who just finished shooting the thriller Machete opposite Robert DeNiro. "He should be where he has always put himself after verbally abusing and physically abusing people all my life-behind bars."
Lindsay, 23, also wrote that her sister Ali, 15, is also concerned about their father's behavior. "It's so sad to get a phone call from my baby sister just now asking, 'why is daddy doing this?' Through tears. He's crossed the lines & hurt me & my family 4 the last time."
Last week, Michael Lohan claimed to New York's Daily News that Entertainment Tonight this week would air taped phone conversations between himself and Dina, in which they discuss Lindsay's well-being. As yet, nothing on this has been confirmed by the TV show.
Still, Dina Lohan tells PEOPLE that she and Lindsay plan to prevent the tapes from coming within public earshot: "We're going to stop it from airing. He is in violation of my order of protection. My attorney sent a cease-and-desist letter, and a copy of my order of protection I have against him. He is now in violation of my criminal order of protection. He harasses me, and calls my cell phone, which he is not allowed to call."
In response to Dina's disdain for Michael's very public dialogue about Lindsay, Michael told PEOPLE last week, "Look, I know that sometimes in the past I've said things I shouldn't have. [But right now] I have to help my child."
Be that as it may, Dina says Lindsay is planning to obtain a restraining order against her father – an effort that intensified after Michael told X17 this month he was seeking conservatorship in order to get Lindsay into rehab for prescription drug abuse, and that he is behind on child support payments.
Says Dina: "He is desperate and spiraling out of control."
