Dad to the rescue…

Despite pregnancy rumors, Linday Lohan, 30, was photographed drinking and smoking cigarettes on a yacht in Italy on Thursday.

Now her father Michael Lohan, 56, has come to her defense, looking to settle the controversy once and for all.

While he tells news outlets he doesn’t condone his daughter’s smoking, he says he still believes his daughter is pregnant.

“She’s not drinking, she was smoking and I talked to her about that,” Lohan tells PEOPLE.

“The last communication that I had was she told me she was pregnant. I don’t know anything other than that. I believe my daughter,” he says.

“I don’t think she’d lie to me about something like that. But yeah, she’s smoking. She smoked a cigarette – I’m not saying it right that she smokes, but it happened.”

Since these photos of Lohan were taken, people close to the actress are reporting mixed info.

A close friend of the actress denied the pregnancy claims according to reports, telling the news outlet that Lindsay “is not pregnant.”
