Michael Lohan has stepped forth to clarify comments he made to a celeb weekly but that were put in the wrong context, one that suggested he had outed daughter Lindsay as a lesbian.

Dad was quoted as saying that the true nature of LiLo's relationship with DJFF Samantha Ronson - the gals recently were caught by paparazzi in a close moment - "is evident to anyone with half a brain," when what he really was commenting on was the nature of ex-wife Dina's new reality series. "I was saying that it's evident the show is not about being a mom and a manager. It's about Dina," Michael tells the New York Daily News.

"Lindsay's life choices are up to her," he adds. "[She and Ronson] are friends, they're always together. I hug my friends, does that make me a homosexual? Of course not." - MWM
