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.

This is truly truly sad. I'm afraid there will be only tragedy from this situation.

For Real?    

Here we go again, Dad is and will be pinpointed for someone who was brought up as Hollywood's next big star. Lindsay will get whom ever involved so that the blame can be on poor Daddy and Mommy for their break up. LINDSEY is grown up acts like a child as most girls do at her age, however not as drastic as her, to much drama LINDSEY leave DAD AND MOM out of your problems and start taking responsibility.

Well when one family member is a lowlife, pretty much the rest of the family are ones too.

I think that the only thing that would straighten her out right now is some serious jail time and I do not mean 23 days! She is very talented and it is a shame that she chooses to throw away her career over booze and cocaine. She has so much going for her! This is a real waste. She did the crime and now she needs to do the time. I was looking forward to her new album but I guess that will never happen with her getting drunk and doing drugs like she is currently. Maybe jail time will straighten her out if Sheriff Baca does not step in and give her special treatment.

Here's Mike Logan...and would like another 15 minutes of attention, please!

Your daughter is not a child, she is an adult, no one is forcing her to drink, no one is forcing her buy/do coke. She needs a reality check, which she has had several times already.

Rehab is a joke, she needs jail time....you should know, you've been there, shes not gonna listen to anyone, she has to make that decision and apparantly she has made her choices now let her face the consequences. Sounds like she takes after her daddy, aren't ya proud?

Wow, her dad is already making excuses for her? It's called enabling, people, and that is exactly why Lindsay keeps getting in the same situations. Until an addict is ready to grow up, accept responsibility for his or her actions, and STOP USING DRUGS AND ALCOHOL, nothing changes! No one can make her stay clean- she has to choose to do so!

Unless he eliminates the addict mother and forces her to get clean on her own, there is no use in bringing her mother to the table as a bickering waste of time and good advise buddy to Lindsay. Get the other kids away from her tho. As far as Lindsay is concerned.. let her face the consequences criminal, medical and mental.. Her brain and body is probably fried and withered from years of abuse ...and really to hell with her reputation being spoiled and acting career okay? Its going to be a slow and tedious process of re-education and learning if she does it right, far from publicity and in another country perhaps.. For she won't live very much longer this way.. and might kill someone if she hangs with that nasty crowd of use and abuse people she loves so much.. anymore!!
