Michael Lohan says various gossip magazines and websites have twisted his words around when they claimed he said that daughter Lindsay is "working as an escort."

Papa Lohan tells X17online exclusively:

    "That was a lie! I would never say anything like that! All I did say when I was arguing with Dina was that 'Dina was acting like a pimp for allowing and going with Lindsay to an event/personal appearance for money, just so Dina could get her cut!' It's like pimping Lindsay out so Dina can make money! They twisted everything to make it look like I said that!"

Dina Lohan has yet to issue a statement.
