Joan Rivers threatens to sue Lindsay Lohan’s father over Plastic Surgery comments
TV show host and comedian Joan Rivers has engaged in a war of words with Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael Lohan following comments the acerbic 80-year-old made about the young, troubled actress.
He responded to the joke by calling Joan up on her obsession with plastic surgery, to which she threatened to sue.
Joan had made a reference to his daughter’s drug past on her Fashion Police TV show, by comparing a dress she was wearing to tin foil, adding that she probably had more on her kitchen counter (as it is used to smoke crack cocaine).
Lohan senior hit back during an interview with Radar magazine, telling them:
“(Rivers) is obsessed with needles and cutting/self-mutilation. Focus on you, Joan and have a little compassion for people with real talent like Lindsay, who have turned their lives around.”
The TV personality hit back via TMZ, a US celebrity gossip website, declaring:
“It’s a little late for the concerned parenting act. As for cutting, it is totally not true and if he says this again I will sue.”
Lindsay Lohan started her career as a promising child actress, which progressed in to her teens with movies such as Mean Girls. However her life seemed to slip into a downward spiral of alcohol and drug abuse, related arrests and various rehab stints. She has since attended the Betty Ford Clinic however and is currently sober.
