The first person Lindsay Lohan called upon her stealth release from rehab Tuesday night was reportedly her mother, Dina. It's safe to say the last person she'll touch base with now that she's a free woman is her estranged father, Michael. But the distance between the two hasn't cramped his concern for his famous daughter.

"God bless her. Lindsay has been through a lot and I give her a lot of credit," Michael tells PopEater's Naughty But Nice Rob Shuter in an exclusive statement.
