(Newser) – In a gesture of troubled-celebrity empathy, MIchael Lohan, Lindsay's ex-con father, has reached out to the Spears family, imploring the world not to judge pregnant 16-year-old Jamie Lynn or sister Britney, "Extra" reports. “Stand together," he told the Spears clan. "Stand by each other and don’t let anyone come between you."

“People don’t realize what it’s like to live under the whirlwind that families like mine and the Spears are caught up in," he added. "It takes a lot to hold it together.” Lohan also took the opportunity to dispel rumors that his daughter is involved with Adrian Grenier of "Entourage," adding that Lindsey is "doing amazingly well."
