As if Lindsay Lohan wasn't in enough trouble already, her father is out to make her life even more complicated.

It was announced that Lohan would appear on David Letterman's TV talk show. It was later announced by producers of The Late Show with David Letterman that the troubled actress would not appear on the show because a mistake had been made.

At first it seemed like someone had pranked the talk show, but LiLo's father, Michael Lohan, claimed responsibility, Reuters reported.

This would have been Lindsay's first television appearance since being charged for stealing a $2,500 gold necklace.

We made a mistake. Someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's reached out to the show yesterday, allegedly on her behalf, and booked her to appear. Clearly, this person was not authorized to make commitments on her behalf, Tom Keaney, a spokesman for Letterman's production company, said in a statement.

Michale Lohan told TMZ that his daughter gave him the green light to book the show, and knew full well about it.

CBS announced Tuesday that the 24-year-old actress would appear by satellite to read Thursday's Top Ten List comedy segment. Lohan tweeted that she was not going to do the show and apologized for the confusion. I'm not sure how this happened, she wrote.

LiLo's personal life has been in the public eye recently as she is facing a three-year sentence if convicted for stealing a necklace from a Los Angeles jewelry store. She pleaded not guilty to grand-theft.
