Michael Lohan – who recently reconciled with the troubled actress after years of estrangement – revealed the ‘Machete’ star has been moved to a secret location following problems at the sober house where she had been staying under the supervision of staff at the Betty Ford rehabilitation clinic.

He said: “I do know that Lindsay has been moved to a secret location and is still actively involved in the programme- and honestly doing better than ever.

“She had me in tears last night when I saw her; she is doing incredibly well and I am so proud to be her father.”

The showbiz patriarch also blasted reports that Lindsay had been involved in an illicit party at her residence, insisting she has continually tested negative for alcohol and other illegal substances.

He added to RadarOnline.com: “There was never a party at Lindsay's sober house. The situation arose as Lindsay and two other girls were on a pass. Lindsay was getting her hair done while the other two girls went their own way. When it was time to get back, Lindsay and the two girls had a problem meeting up, to which they wound up being 10 minutes later back to the property.

“Lindsay and the other two girls tested negative for drugs and alcohol.”
