Lindsay's dad signs deal for 'tell-all' memoir

Michael Lohan is writing his memoir.

The father of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has signed a deal with South Florida PR firm TransMedia Group and its founder Tom Madden to co-write the book, which will focus on his “rise from drug addiction and imprisonment to a Bible-quoting minister, drug interventionist and successful businessman”.

Mr Madden said the tome, 'I'm Not Your Daddy Dearest...If I Can Turn My Life Around, So Can You', will show a different side to Michael than has been previously portrayed.

He explained: “So much of the press Lohan receives misfires as it characterises him as a 'drug abusing, felonious stock trader', as opposed to the decent, honourable guy I know.

“Readers of his tell-all memoir will meet a very different Michael Lohan, the real one.”

The autobiography is also set to focus on Michael's troubled relationship with Lindsay.

Mr Madden added: “Our publicity will show Lohan cares about his daughter, how he battled his own addiction and today helps others stay clean.

“Often he pleads in interviews for a judge to order his falling star daughter into a six month drugs/detox programme which he believes she desperately needs.”
