Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan is reportedly seeking a restraining order against her father, reports TMZ.
This comes after her father Michael staged an unsuccessful intervention with her last week, amid fears she is drinking and using drugs again.
A source close to the 26-year-old actress told TMZ that Lindsay feels the only way to stop her father from interfering in her life is to take legal action.
The troubled starlet recently cut her father out of her life again after he recorded a telephone conversation during which she was fighting with her mother Dina and made it public soon afterwards.
New lover speaks
Lindsay is said to meeting with her lawyer next week regarding the matter, boasting with full support from her mother.
Meanwhile fitness trainer Josh Chunn, who Michael claimed is dating his daughter and was present during his failed intervention, has opened up about his relationship with her.
He told the New York Daily News: "I've been trying to get Lindsay to focus. But how do you get her to focus with all the stuff going on around her? I can barely focus. She's a strong girl. She's cleaning up. I just want her to be OK."
'I don't have a boyfriend'
"I think I'm the best influence on her. The deal is she is surrounded by a bunch of fuck-ups.
"I'm there for Lindsay. I listen. I work hard for my money. I pay my own bill when we go out. I have a schedule. That's the problem with these kids in LA, they don't have a schedule. All they want to do is party."
Lindsay dismissed rumours that she has a boyfriend on Friday via Twitter. She wrote: "I don't have a boyfriend. I have Chanel, Hermes and diamonds. X (sic)"
