Michael Lohan's Walk of Shame -- Betty Ford Edition

10/6/2010 4:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Observe Michael Lohan in his natural state ... the state of rejection -- just moments after he was denied access to his daughter Lindsay Lohan at the Betty Ford Center. 

Lohan was photographed in the hospital parking lot next to the famous rehab clinic in Rancho Mirage, CA.

As we first reported, Michael dropped by, uninvited, to see Lindsay last Thursday -- but security sent him packing because visiting hours were over.

We're guessing he would have been turned away at any hour ... since LiLo's already rejected Daddy Dearest about 10 million times.
