Michael Lohan: Lindsay Quit ‘Inferno,’ She Wasn’t Fired

By: / November 24, 2010

Michael Lohan was on the warpath last night outside House of the Blues in West Hollywood, this time slamming the director of Linda Lovelace bio-pic Inferno Matthew Wilder. Lindsay Lohan’s father claims Wilder was lying when he said he had fired Lilo from the lead role in the film.  

Celebuzz talked to Michael at the event to set the record straight, and he tells us “Lindsay left Inferno. Wilder can go shove it up his butt. She didn’t want to do that movie. He’s full of it. He was trying to ride our coattails.”

Lohan’s highly-anticipated starring role in Inferno had been in limbo after failing two drug tests and stints in jail and rehab, which caused shooting to be delayed. Last week, Wilder finally announced Malin Akerman would replace her, and claimed Lindsay was fired.

“She doesn’t need to do a movie like that,” Michael Lohan told Celebuzz. “Give me a break. Great thing to do for a girl that’s going through recovery. Put her in a position to act in a position where she’s a drug addict. Real genius, and he cares, right? Come on. Biggest hypocrite on the planet.”

Then Michael threatened, “If he wants to say he fired my daughter or let her go, let him say it to my face.”

Calls to Wilder’s office have not yet been returned.
