Lohan lashes out at father

LOS ANGELES - Lindsay Lohan had strong words for her father on her blog Thursday.

The 22-year-old actress lashed out at father Michael by calling him a 'public embarrassment' and a 'bully' in a MySpace blog entry. Earlier in the week, Michael said in an interview with E! that Lohan gal pal Samantha Ronson was 'using' his daughter.

Lohan's publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnik, confirmed the post by Lohan was legitimate.

'If you have something to say to me, say it to my face - that's what I have believed my whole life - don't be a coward and say it to others first, let alone all the media in the world,' Lohan wrote.

The father and daughter have publicly quarreled for years. Lohan said in the that she tried to make things work in hopes 'of having a father again' and 'wanting things to change' despite what her mother and siblings have gone through with him.

The 'Mean Girls' star went on to say that she believes her father is addicted to fame, and if he really cared about her, he would respect her wishes.

DMX pleads guilty in Fla.

MIAMI - Rapper DMX has pleaded out a Miami drug case and now awaits extradition to face more charges in Arizona.

The 37-year-old rapper and actor pleaded guilty Wednesday to attempted marijuana and cocaine possession and was sentenced to time served. His lawyer Bradford Cohen says DMX is still in custody, waiting for Arizona authorities to pick him up on drug and animal cruelty charges there.

Cohen says DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, decided to plead guilty when he was denied bail earlier this week due to the outstanding Arizona warrant.
