Michael Lohan Gets Angry with Shepard Smith, Drops F-Bomb

Michael Lohan, father of Lindsay Lohan, appeared on Fox News’ “Studio B” this afternoon for an in-studio interview with Shepard Smith. During the sit-down, Lohan became agitated after Smith commented, “I think a lot of [other people] are saying if, you know, he’d done half this much to help his daughter back there– I mean, far be it from me to judge.”

Lohan responded, “Don’t tell me how much time I spend helping my daughter or going out to eat dinner or how much time I spend in the F—ing gym.”

Afterward, Lohan addressed his appearance last night on CNN’s “Larry King Live.” “I didn’t want to do it,” he said. “I got a call from Mr. King himself saying, ‘Michael, I need you over here.’ Out of respect I went over there because a promise was made.”

Lohan also told Smith he “was offered $15,000 to do an interview” with a tabloid show, which he turned down, but he would not say which one.

Smith ended the interview by saying, “Michael Lohan, good luck with your life and your daughter and all the rest.”
