Lindsay's Dad to TMZ: "I'm Partly Responsible"

7/24/2007 12:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan, Lindsay's estranged dad, who was recently released from a two-year stint in a New York state prison over a DUI, tells TMZ that he's partly to blame for his daughter's constant problems with drugs, booze and the law.

In an exclusive conversation with TMZ, Lindsay's dad said that he doesn't believe that the 21-year-old can survive this latest DUI storm on her own, and wants to put the nasty custody fight with his estranged wife Dina on hold, in a last ditch effort to save their daughter's life. "I want to withdraw everything -- court wise -- sit down with Dina as Lindsay's parents and figure out how to help her," Lohan said. "Lindsay can't do this on her own ... when we were together, none of this was happening."

Last month, a Nassau County Family Court judge ordered Michael and Dina to see a family therapist as part of an ongoing custody war over their two children, Ali, 13 and Dakota, 11. The couple was also ordered to stop speaking negatively of each other in front of their kids and undergo counseling at a hearing on Monday.

TMZ also contacted Lindsay's mother Dina, who had no comment.

my opinion    

Daddy is making some sense. Mama Dina is probably on the phone trying to cut a business deal turning this drama into a well paying reality show.

Mommy has no comment. Ya I bet she doesn't. She hasn't been seen anywhere near Lindsay since she went to rehab the first time ~ she is a P.O.S as a mother ~ she is more concerned with pimping her other children and her own reality show. Although, with Lindsay doing the kind of drugs she is doing ~ she could very well be pushing her mother away or not want her near her ~ who knows, we don't know the whole story.

I feel truly bad for him. It hurts like hell to see a child go through substance abuse. I really hope she gets help, because I don't think she will live long the way she is going.
