Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer

Threatened by Michael

9/26/2010 6:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, worked miracles running back and forth to court Friday to spring her client from jail, but it wasn't good enough for Michael Lohan. TMZ has learned daddy Lohan left a voicemail and texts on Holley's phone, threatening to "blow you out of the water."

Sources tell us the voicemail -- left earlier in the week -- also threatened to "dig up dirt" on Shawn, as well as Lindsay's business manager, Lou Taylor.  

Michael left two text messages on Holley's phone Friday after the court hearing, telling her she should do Lindsay a favor and quit. In another text, Michael claimed Holley and Taylor were destroying the Lohan family.
0926_michael_lohan_video_small_2Michael went nuclear at the Bev Hills Courthouse Friday morning after Judge Elden Fox threw Lindsay in jail. Fox's decision was reversed later that day after Holley filed an appeal, and Lindsay got out of jail Friday night.

We're told Holley, who could not be reached for comment, will not seek a restraining order.

It's just Michael being Michael.

UPDATE: Michael tells TMZ, "It's true. I said those things ... but it’s spun. I wasn’t knocking Shawn for working all those hours ... I was knocking the fact that I told them to do this [send Lindsay to rehab] a long time ago. Just now they’re listening."

HIS behavior is not helping Lindsay. Both Dina and Michael are extremely unhealthy people. Lindsay is a mess because her foundation was set by these two and she never constructed a new one. Here, he blames the lawyer (that his daughter can't afford) as opposed to blaming his daughter who sat in court the last time with an obscenity written on her finger and who continues to use alcohol and drugs. When Linsday dies, he will blame everyone but Dina, Linsday and himself. This train wreck of a family should leave the lime light and seek professional help.

This sad ass excuse for a father should be taken out in the middle of nowhere and get one just behind the ear. MAYBE if he were left to decompose, his daughter might get on track. If anyone is responsible for her stupid mistakes, it is him. He is always in her face, always trying to force his misguided life into hers, and always where he isn't wanted. In this case.... Anywhere and Everywhere is where he isn't wanted. Well folks, lets all hope for a massive stroke!

In ML own fu*ked up way, he loves his daughter out of all of them I feel he has the right "idea" on how to help her, he just has major major anger issues. He blows up, very impulsive guy, no one I would ever want to be in a relationship with. He needs to get his **** right because in the end he might be the only one who can get threw to this girl.

Source, such BS. It's her voice mail so the source must be her and her people. Spin it this way, spin it that way, media. They(her and the Lohan's)are all useless.

I just don't know what to make of this man...I mostly think he really is trying to help his daughter, the divorce really affected him, and with his obvious anger issues, he just doesn't stop to think.
But.....who really knows...

"Michael left two text messages on Holley's phone Friday after the court hearing, telling her she should do Lindsay a favor and quit. In another text, Michael claimed Holley and Taylor were destroying the Lohan family."

DINA-LING and Michael need to SHUT UP! He is just as responsible for this mess of a situation because he too goes around BLAMING EVERYONE BUT LINDSAY and or her DRUG PUSHERS or HER MOTHER, no everyone else is to blame for Lohan's plight in this life!

No ONE SHOVED those drugs down her throat, or her pipe or her nose. No ONE is telling her that she shouldn't be doing what she should be doing on probation other than herself. No one is telling Lohan to go and get drunk or high and drive, just LOHAN herself.

Michael, DINA-LING and Lohan herself have only themselves to blame for the mess Lohan has made of her life! She CHOOSES to behave UNLAWFUL in the eyes of the court of LAW, she is going to pay that price, through probation, death as in OD'ing or killing someone else and going to prison for manslaughter.

This just brings to light that Chapman-Holley is only doing her job and if Michael Lohan does not like the Job she is doing it is not for him to have ANY COMMENTARY because it is Lohan herself that is paying for this representation.

This IDIOT thinks that by threatening a official representing the law is going to do what? Get her to QUIT, be FIRED? As far as I remember he has no say in Lohan's life because she is an ADULT of LEGAL AGE facing her demons in the court of law for her CRIMES done in the state of CA. She is a common criminal just like her DADDY! My how that APPLE DIDNT FALL FAR FROM THAT TREE!

Michael is a Joke! Lohan is a JOKE and the only reason why the FAMILY & NAME IS A JOKE is because you produced a DRUG RIDDLED, PILL-POPPING, BOOZE BAG OF A DAUGHTER FROM YOUR OWN GENE POOL!

He needs to be NEUTERED before he can produce another drain on our, already taxed JUDICIAL SYSTEM! ie michael jr, ali and or cody are all eligible to take on the next round of being on probation just like their older sister and sibling Lindsay!

He should be so PROUD! What a laughing STOCK!

I can't think of anyone worse to threaten like that than a criminal lawyer.

Typical from a jail bird. Once a loser, always a loser.
