LINDSAY Lohan's father has put her through "hell".

The troubled star - who has a notoriously difficult relationship with her estranged parent Michael Lohan - revealed she was forced to grow up faster than she should have because of being in the "middle" of rows between her dad and her mother, his ex-wife Dina.

Lindsay - the eldest of Michael and Dina's four children - explained: "He's put myself and my mother and my mom's parents through so much hell. From the death threats to throwing shoes at my grandfather's head and giving him a concussion to threatening to kill my mother in front of my little brother Dakota.

"I grew up really fast just because of the situations I was subjected to because of my father. My mom would try to shield me from that as much as possible, but I chose to get in the middle of my parents the entire life."

The 'Mean Girls' actress - who recently spent 13 days of a 90-day jail sentence behind bars for violating the terms of her 2007 probation for a driving under the influence conviction - admitted now she feels nothing but pity for her father, as he is crying out for "attention".

She added to Vanity Fair magazine: "I feel sorry for him. Obviously, it shows a far cry for attention in so many ways. He's not happy with himself. Therefore, he has to project it onto others."
