Lindsay Lohan apparently got an unwanted knock at the door Friday. Dad Michael Lohan tells E! News that he attempted to stage an intervention for Lindsay at her Beverly Hills home Friday afternoon, saying he was worried she had relapsed and that it might have contributed to her allegedly failing to show up for postproduction duty on "The Canyons."

The cute child star grew into a Hollywood bombshell — with grownup problems of her own.

(The film's producer, meanwhile, told us earlier that screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis was actually cracking an inside joke when he tweeted about Lindsay missing work and that "all is well in Canyonland.")

Beverly Hills police had no information to provide, but according to Michael, cops showed up after receiving a call about trespassers.

Michael said Lindsay was at home when he and a few other concerned souls arrived, but that a guy who called himself the actress' boyfriend wouldn't let them come in and said Lindsay's dad wouldn't be the one to solve her problems.

Lindsay's rep said they will not be commenting, telling E! News, "We're not going to use the media as a forum for discussing family matters."

He previously told us in response to the Ellis confusion that the 26-year-old has been busy promoting "Liz & Dick," which premieres on Lifetime next month.

Lindsay, however, tweeted: "I don't have a boyfriend. I have Chanel, Hermes and diamonds. X"

She already wasn't her dad's biggest fan these days, saying he "betrayed" her by recording her on the phone talking about an explosive fight she had with mom Dina Lohan.
