Is it just us, or are you also just plain exhausted with the Lohan family drama? It’s something new every week and we’re getting sick of it. They just got out of that whole Dina-did-she-or-didn’t-she-do-cocaine Lohan mess, with Lindsay pretty much disowning dad Michael. He obviously didn’t like that because he started the weekend off by staging an “intervention” on Lindsay. By that we mean he pretty much showed up at her house and refused to leave until she committed to going to a treatment center to get help. TMZ reports that Michael told them she’s surrounded by “a bunch of alcoholics and drug addicts.” Of course the cops showed up because someone called them due to Michael’s trespassing. And this may be a case of the pot calling the kettle black, but Dina’s also tired of Michael, telling TMZ, “This sole act by my ex was not an intervention nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by any member of Lindsay’s family or her professional team of handlers. It’s all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again. It’s sad and I hope he stops masquerading as her father in public and starts acting like one in private.”
Michael himself is claiming that Lindsay’s whole management team — Evan Hainey (LiLo’s manager) Dave Feldman (entertainment lawyer) and Shawn Holley (defence lawyer) — are on board with this stunt of his. He’s also been saying that there have been emails circulating between all of them about Lindsay’s destructive behavior, which apparently includes, “drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day. I have seen the empty bottles and even cocaine in her room at Chateau.” TMZ says they’ve seen some of the text messages between the group which date October 19th, which agree to Michael trying to … intervene.
He didn’t manage getting through to her, as the police showed up and now Lindsay wants an “order of protection” against him. But that’s not all, guys. Michael is a ball that keeps on rollin’ because the latest update is that he plans to go to court to try and get conservatorship for Lindz, a la Britney Spears and the first order of business will be getting her into rehab. Look … we don’t doubt that Lindsay is in trouble. It’s as plain as day that she’s been on a spiral for years. We just wished Michael would be a better role model and more sincere about actually help her, instead of helping himself. Because he isn’t exactly winning Father of the Year anytime soon. We always get the feeling he’s out to be famous, instead of being there for his famous daughter. And that’s just a shame.
