Michael Lohan:

I'm Not Backing Off Anything

5/6/2010 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan's lawyer, Lisa Bloom tells TMZ in no uncertain terms ... Michael is not backing down or backing off his stand to get Lindsay into rehab.

Michael Lohan & Lindsay Lohan

TMZ reported that Michael was backing off his threat to force the issue.  We were told the lawyers were "trying to resolve things amicably."  But resolving it amicably does not mean Michael is backing down or backing off, Bloom says.

Bloom tells TMZ, "There has been no agreement as to anything.  All options remain open to save and protect Lindsay.  That is Michael's #1 priority."

Bloom adds, "Michael wants Lindsay to go to rehab.  If she doesn't, all options remain open.  He loves her.  Her decision not to meet with him or go into rehab puts him in a very difficult position."

I can't wait for the day when it's been 24 hrs that ML's massive face isn't plastered on some site
And then the day it's been 3 months since that happened
And then the day it's been a year
And then the day he's gone forever

If Lindsey gets clean what will Michael do for an income? He sells her story and photo ops to the paparazzi now.

Lindsay's a mess and her "concerned" father should have been concerned YEARS AGO. It's too late for his sorry-ass actions to do any good.



The father is just playing this "concerned parent" role to make sure he's in the public eye....what a loser douche-bag.

He needs to get her in rehab. She's going to be dead soon, if not! Can't believe her mother goes out and partys with her.

From watching Court TV I didn't think Lisa Bloom was crazy enough to represent Michael Lohan. But then again she is Gloria Allred's daughter.

He can't "make" her do ANYTHING and needs to realize that rehab has to be HER desire, NOT his.



They are both idiots. She's done absolutely nothing that doesn't involve scandal in years.



Why does TMZ keep covering her>

Oh I get it now - Michael Lohan is using the threat of a conservatorship to try and crowbar himself out of paying child support, i.e., "Dina, back off on child support, or I'll lock up our daughter".



He might even honor that for a short time, but likely he'll eventually work the conservator/rehab angle again. I'm guessing the reason he wants Lindsay in private treatment, not a rehab facility, is so he can film her 'recovery' for some reality tv show. In a private treatment scenario he has a better chance of controlling the doctors and situation, and no other patients to give him legal troubles. So for him its win-win - he gets out of paying child support, or he gets his reality show, and maybe both.



Probably he and Bloom already have something written up where she gets her fee from the reality show proceeds. TMZ keeps insisting Lindsay has no money, and Michael doesn't seem to have real money either, so how else does she get paid? Is she stupid enough to think Lindsay's lawsuit against E-trade will actually bring in $100 million, and she'll get a cut?



And its curious, isn't it, that TMZ knows Lindsay's financial status, but never seems to question Michael's . . . so is he your source for all things Lindsay, TMZ? Probably TMZ has an angle on Lindsay going to rehab too, e.g. to have 'exclusive inside video', which explains their constant abuse of her and tedious attention to urgings that she go in for treatment.
