Are things coming to a head? Or is it just more of the Lohan family saga?

Lindsay Lohan continued her Twitter attacks on her father Thursday in response to his leaking of voicemails of the sobbing actress.

“Its so sad that I even have to share this w/everyone, but I haven’t had a real relationship w/Michael Sr. in years. That is the truth. Xox,” she Tweeted. “I just hope I can show others how to be strong through times & to be able to stand up for yourself and loved ones no matter what!”

She does find a silver lining her in estrangement: “Good news is, I haven’t called him many times @ all-so, it will end sooner than later!!! Lol”

Michael Lohan released the recording last week to Radar Online featuring Lindsay crying, “No one cares about me.”

Lindsay, 23, fired back on Twitter that her dad was a “lunatic,” and she’s reportedly weighing her legal options, including the possibility of getting a restraining order against him.

Michel Lohan tells PEOPLE he’s worried about his daughter, whom he believes is battling an addiction. “I want to get her into a long-term rehab to get off the prescription medication and whatever else,” he says. “Regardless of what people say to me, Lindsay is my first concern.”
