    Lindsay Lohan Plotting Revenge on "Loser" of a Father

    Lindsay Lohan 's reached her breaking point with her daddy dearest.

    Hours after one of her phone calls to Michael Lohan, apparently secretly recorded by her father, was leaked to ostensibly to show her fragile state, the Parent Trapper attacked on two fronts. She took to Twitter to denouce his actions and also ordered her attorney to seek some kind of legal means to get him out of her life.

    "My fathers such a loser & those recordings are from years ago," she tweets. "To release personal things is foul enough, but to edit them. I used to think. That he needed the book for dummies on learning how to be a father. Haha-he's needs the book for dummies on HOW TO BE A MAN."

    The recordings, published by Radar Online, find the Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen actress sobbing as she laments to her papa that "no one cares about me" and pours her heart out about problems in their family and her failed relationship with on-off gal-pal Samantha Ronson.

    Michael Lohan released the dramatic tape to back up his repeated claims that the 23-year-old needs assistance.

    But, according to Linday's lawyer, Michael's the one who's going to need help.

    Lindsay's Santa Monica-based attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, tells E! News the starlet wants to "explore all legal options," including the possiblity of filing a criminal complaint against her father.

    "Lindsay's concerned about recent actions of his," says Chapman. "She is concerned about defamatory statements about her own personal safety and has instructed me to explore all legal options available to her to get him to stop and to leave her alone."

    At issue for Holley is when and where the elder Lohan may have taped the phone call, because that could determine whether she would be able to file a criminal report or merely a defamation or invasion of privacy suit.

    "She just wants me to take a look at what appears to be escalating destructive behavior," the lawyer says "We're trying to figure out [where the tape was recorded] right now.  If it was in California, the law is very clear. You can't do that.

    "Both parties have to authorize it being recorded," says Chapman,"and there's no question Lindsay did not authorize it. If it happened here, he's in violation of the criminal law."

    In any case, a petition for a restraining order is the most likely scenario at the moment and Holley says one could be filed by the end of the week.

    And the family feud continues...
