Lindsay Lohan Parts Ways With Publicist
Steve Honig tells THR he no longer represents the actress.
Lindsay Lohan has parted ways with her publicist, Steve Honig.
Honig confirmed the news with The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday. He did not provide details on why he cut ties with the 26-year-old actress.
TMZ reports that Honig quit Wednesday night after clashing with Lohan's father, Michael Lohan. According to the website, Michael became upset over a statement Honig issued distancing Lindsay's representation from Michael's plans to stage an intervention of the star of Lifetime's upcoming biopic Liz & Dick last week.
Honig represented Lindsay since the spring of 2011; she had previously been repped by Leslie Sloane.
Lohan, staging her acting comeback in Liz & Dick and Bret Easton Ellis' upcoming indie film The Canyons, remains front and center in the tabloid spotlight. In the past few weeks, she has been accused of clipping a man with her Porsche outside a New York City nightclub -- grainy surveillance video, however, appears to present evidence to the contrary -- and, several days later, was involved in a confrontation with a hanger-on who allegedly struck her after she requested he remove photos of her from his phone.
Earlier this month, Lohan's parental drama reignited when a desperate call she made to Michael after a fight with her mother, Dina, during a post-partying limo ride from New York to Long Island leaked to TMZ. Hours later, she endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
