Michael Lohan: Dina

Screwed Lindsay Up, Too

10/11/2010 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan is lashing out at claims he's the root of Lindsay Lohan's problems -- what with the violence, prison stints and general bad behavior.

Michael tells TMZ ... Dina was violent as Lindsay was growing up, and it left an impression.  Michael claims when Lindsay was 4 years old, Dina was arguing with his mom and Dina allegedly smashed a phone across grandma's face, requiring six stitches.

And Michael says, on another occasion -- when Lindsay was a teenager -- Dina went nuts on Michael, flew over two beds to get to him and accidentally knocked herself out.

Michael adds it was Dina's idea to leave Lindsay in Hollywood at a very young age, even though LiLo had a stalker.

As we reported, some members of Lindsay's family tell us ... Lindsay believes her current predicament is the result of Michael's craziness.

UPDATE: A source close to Dina tells us, "This is absolutely not true. She will not respond to anything Michael Lohan says."

Michael has the RIGHT to 'vindicate' his name, so he is not the SOLE reason or blame for Lohan's booze-bag, drug addled, pill-popping life. He might as well, as they ALL ARE DOING, BLAMING EACH OTHER FOR THE REASONS AS TO WHY- LOHAN is a DRUG ADDLED, PILL-POPPING BOOZE BAG! These people just drag each other through the MUD because NO ONE really remembers them for any CONTRIBUTION to anything other than, being tabloid fodder, a joke on Late-Night, and just basically a mess from beginning to end. This is going to be interesting because NEXT we should be hearing from DINA-LING!

Lohan DID NOT just point the FU FINGER at Mike but DINA-LING too! So this is going to be an interest week of you did this and or you did that ! What A CROCK!

Coming from an alcoholic family I know what kind of impression it can leave on a child. For years I blamed my mother for the bad choices I made, but once you get to a point in your life you have to quit blaming the parent for all your bad choices. They are not to blame for their alcoholism. It is a disease that is not curable. With that being said, I do think that her mother Dina made bad choices by taking her to clubs at a young age, enabling her throughout the years. I do believe her father is more interested in Lindsay's money then her health or mental health. I hope I am wrong!!! Now, the parents are to blame for Lindsay's emotional issues, but not her bad choices or her addictions.
I will pray for Lindsay's full recovery, and for her parent's.

I don't understand why her family members felt it was necessary to run to the press with this information. And the same goes for her friends...it's seems so sad when you realize that she doesn't have anyone around her who she could trust. She clearly needs to get away from both parents who seem more concerned about being right then anything else.

Parents don't take responsibility.
Kids don't take responsibility.
You're all adults....GROW UP!
The past was screwed up. We only have
the here and now. Take responsibility for
this one moment in time.It's not what mom did.
It's not what dad did. Get long term counseling and
grow up. The whole family blames everyone else.
Look within! Day 1 of being responsible.

oh...side bar...
Heard on the radio this AM...Lindsay has been put on
restrictions due to breaking rules at Betty Ford.
She has gone from 24 phone and texting to only 2 hours a day.
Same ol' Same ol'

Both parents are culpable.Both parents made bad decisions.
Airing the family's dirty laundry in public is neither helpful or wise.

Dina came across as a hard core biker chick on the Today Show.
I bet she’s had her share of some nasty head banging brawls

It's at the core of the alcoholic/addict's being to blame others for everything, so let's not everyone be so shocked.

They are both to blame and LILO does not have the mental nor emotional capacity to handle the stress of fame. She really needs to find another career because the eye of scrutiny will never go away.

Well really it's both of their faults who Lindsay turned out. But Dina is to blame the most because she has been a part of Lindsay's life the most and allowed the unsavory behavior. Dana is also in deep denial re: Lindsay's problem - and we all know if you can't admit you have a problem, then you can't fix it. Was totally bizarre when she denied how many times Lindsay went to rehab during that interview. She's an enabler. Lindsay needs to get away from BOTH parents and find someone who is a better influence.

Who cares, this family just (for the 5000th time) needs to go away. I bet Dina is leaking all this info to the press just to have her daughter in the news again, its so pathetic.

Oh please, not the "it's a disease" thing! It's not a disease, it's a self indulgent bad habit of medicating yourself to deal with your emotions. You can't put the drink down, decide you don't want to drink anymore, then then "disease" is gone. It doesn't work that way.

Here's the thing, there is no "perfect" way to raise kids, nor do babies come with instructions...
BOTH of Lindsay's parents ARE responsible for screwing her up...Michael seems to be taking responsibility for his part in it by stepping up...Dina continues to deny HER part, and refuses to act like a parent in any capacity...
Lindsay is an adult and, as such, bears great responsibility herself for her own actions...Regardless of how she feels towards her parents, she owes it to herself to work through those issues in a constructive manner...If she doesn't, she will NEVER fully "recover"...

Um...NO! Lindsay is an adult, if she wants help she has to take responsibility for her own actions and have her parents restrained from the press and taken off the payroll! If this were true there would be millions of kids of divorces addicted to drugs because their parents had a bad relationship. Life happens, people make mistakes. Stop blaming, it's worse than the drug addiction!
