Lindsay Lohan Reunites With Father Michael

Lindsay Lohan’s stay at the Betty Ford Center is apparently healing more than her substance-abuse problems. It’s also mending her severed family ties, Radar Online reports.

According to a source, the recently troubled Mean Girls actress reunited with her father, Michael Lohan, on Sunday, going on a shopping excursion after meeting up at the rehab facility.

The pair have had a less than ideal relationship over the past several years, with the 24-year-old actress going so far as to seek a cease and desist order against the elder Lohan in September after he reportedly attempted to sell portions of her diary from an earlier rehab stint. The source says of the get-together, which occurred shortly after 1 p.m. on Sunday,

“It was an emotional reunion… there were hugs, kisses and even a few tears when Michael and Lindsay first saw each other…it was not a fleeting encounter, this appeared well-planned in advance.”

The insider notes that, after the teary-eyed greeting, the father-and-daughter duo visited a shopping mall in nearby Palm Desert, where “they were seen walking around together and at one point, were in a jewelry store.”

Picking out matching friendship bracelets, perhaps?
