Lohan's father 'relieved' by split

Lindsay Lohan's father Michael is glad his daughter's "toxic" relationship with Samantha Ronson is over - because he always thought the DJ was just using the actress to further her career.

Michael Lohan publicly voiced his disapproval of the romance last year and his comments ignited a war of words with the 'Mean Girls' star who subsequently distanced herself from her dad.

Lohan admits he was relieved when he heard the couple had split - calling their on-again-off-again love affair "toxic."

And he hopes he will now be able to rebuild his relationship with the 22-year-old.

He tells TVGuide.com: "I've always believed that what Samantha has done, just dragging Lindsay around just to enhance her career, is wrong. It's pretty evident now. So let's see where Samantha's career goes when Lindsay's not around now. It's cost Lindsay her emotions and her well-being.

"I hope Lindsay can move on. I know Lindsay's upset over this, but it's an opportunity for her to get on with her life and pursue her career and the goals she should've been pursuing all along."

The actress confirmed reports she and Ronson had split on Monday after nearly two years of dating.
