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.

1011_lohans_EX_TMZ_01
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 is a controlling dry drunk. He is OBSESSED with forcing his way back in and can't accept that noone wants him involved.

Tough cookies MiLo, you are out of her life 4ever!!! You betray and sell out everyone you are involved with.

I am glad LL refuses to see you. She just needs to learn to no longer be hurt by you and block your very being from her existence.

You are a horrible parent and your constant BRAYING to the media with all your DEMANDS proves what a psycho nut case you really are. Maybe you love/loved your children but you have already burned every bridge back and YOU need to accept that, she already has.

STFU, enough already loser. Get a job and pay your child support.

Well done TMZ, no news on Lindsay so you invent a story. Everyone knows counselling is a part of therapy, you post that fact and YOU TMZ imply these are Lindsays words. LINDSAY HAS SAID NOTHING! just your non existent 'sources' Now what do we have? the father from hell talking about Lindsay AGAIN!

Lindsay Lohan has spent years fianancially supporting her family, she still does. People ask where does Michael Lohan get his money, its as clear as the nose on your face, he gets his money from paid interviews and comments about his daughter Lindsay. TMZ are feeding this frenzy. I don't care about Michael Lohan, and its good Dina has refused to comment on his latest outburst. Leave Lindsay alone, she needs peace of mind to concentrate on rehab.

Dina did not respond to Michael Lohan by giving her side of the story and I hope she continues to stay quiet. Both should STFU. Its only Michael Lohan spouting off, guess he saw an opportunity to earn a couple hundred bucks. He should put that money forward to pay his outstanding child support.

OMG...enough already with the finger pointing! I am an alcoholic, 20 years sober. So was my dad. So is my brother, so was my grandfather, other grandfather, uncle, ad infinitum. Uncle died on the streets from the disease. It's horrid, genetic, and just a crappy way to live.

NOT ONE OF THEM TIED ME DOWN TO POUR THE KAKA DOWN MY THROAT! I did that all on my own. I take responsibility for my actions and my disease, and more importantly, my recovery.

Stop the finger pointing. It doesn't matter one bit. Cause the ONLY ONE that can keep Lindsay sober is LINDSAY!

I love how this dysfunctional family is doing the shrink thing in public and in the press. This is chit that comes out while sitting in chairs in the shrink's office. But not with this crew.
Still, I don't care what comes out or where she's been. I still want to do some mattress boo bop with Dina.

This crap is NOT coming from the Betty. In a quality rehab program, they would make Lindsay take her own inventory and admit and accept her mistakes, not put the blame on others. Also, if Dina and Michael gave a crap, they would participate in individual and family counseling where they would be forced to look in a mirror and accept be accountable for their own issues -- not be pointing fingers at others. I agree with the majority of the comments above... this is the same old same old for this family. This is not a sincere effort at rehab. Start with the Man in the Mirror, Lohan's.

Can Lindsey divorce her parents from her? I mean, honestly, she needs to go into court and get a divorce from her parents.

I'm sick to death of reading comments by people that think they have all the answers. (It's usually the ones that are looking down from lofty heights that are the most disturbed bty.) Brainwashing is what occurs in dysfucntional families AND you don't just get over it AND it's usually the one child who is "acting out" the most that is the healthiest believe it or effing don't... Micheal is all about "fix" Lindsey. If Lindsey was "fixed" everything would be fine. B effing S. There is a process that needs to occur before anyone can "get over it and grow up" why don't some of you omniscent jerks familiarize yourselves with that process and then we might see some fricking progress in this world. Start by looking up the definition of scapegoating.

@SallyChi From what I can see Lindsay has no desire whatsoever to divorce her mother. Even more, the Lohan's children seem to have taken a united front behind Dina. Michael Jr. excluded his father from being mentioned as one of the people that stand behind Lindsay and support her. He specifically said brothers, sister, mother. And it isn't Dina saying all of this toxic stuff, it's Michael. People want to hate on Dina, but she isn't nearly as destructive as Michael apparently is.

What a pathetic loser Michael Lohan is. He can only get himself into the news riding the coattails of the daughter he damaged. Somebody should smash his face in.

Both Dina & Michael are not only sorry excuses for human beings, they are patheitc parents. That aside, Lindsay needs to accept responsibility for her actions and stop looking to pass the blame. Lots of people come from messed up homes but they don't all turn to drugs and booze. Her being a spoiled brat and surrounding herself around the enablers are what caused her to be an addict. She will never get through recovery if she doesn't accept responsibility. Michael & Dina are absolute moronic fame whores and I wish TMZ, People and every other tabloid would realize that their statements and reactions are not news worthy. If everyone stops covering them maybe they would finally **** their mouthes and truley start trying to make up for lost time and become parents.
