Michael Lohan stopped by the OK! office today, July 26, to set the record straight and respond to his daughter Ali's allegations that he is the reason for Lindsay's latest legal woes.OK!: What is the first thing that went through your mind when you heard about Ali's letter?Michael Lohan: I said get me on the phone with David Kaplan. For Ali to say that I was never there and I'm lying...People who have known us for 25 years know that I have always been there for my kids. These lies have got to stop because they are having an effect on my children. We don't realize in life is that what I do affects my kids.OK!: Is it a chain reaction? Michael: Absolutely, it's a reciprocal effect, it's like a pebble in a pond. Everyone gets affected by it, but we don't realize it and I certainly didn't in my life and I should have. Now you get these things on VH-1 being written by my daughter Ali. Ali was too young to remember any of this. And you know what, reflect back on Lindsay's soundtrack, Daughter to Father, Confessions of a Broken Heart, read the words - I wait for the postman to bring me a letter, I wait for the good lord to make me better, I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders, a family in crisis that only gets older. And then she goes on to say, where are you now daddy I love you, I love you. It's a story of love and caring about a father.OK!: You just want your daughters to be happy? In the end that's what a father wants for their children, to be happy?Michael: I just wanted to help. You know I just wanted to be there for my kids and make Lindsay a success. She's blessed and gifted.OK!: Are you proud of Lindsay?Michael: Lindsay is my daughter, I love her to death. You know if I could serve the time for her in jail I would myself, if they allowed me to I would. If I could die for my kids I would. I gladly, without a blink of an eye, give my life for my children. And that's what it's about, loving my kids.By Shauna Bass
