Michael Lohan -- Am I On the List?

10/18/2010 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan showed up at the Betty Ford Center today to try to see his daughter Lindsay, and although he was turned away -- believe it or not -- there's still hope Michael might get inside.

As we first reported, Michael is trying to visit Lindsay as part of Betty Ford's "Family Week" -- and he is technically family.

Sources say Michael was turned away by a guard at Betty Ford who referred him to someone in charge of the "Family Week" list.

We're told Michael went to his nearby hotel room and made the call -- he's waiting for a call back. .

How do you defend that, @44? Lindsay is in a car, cuffed and stuffed, about to be driven off to jail. Meanwhile, Michael Lohan is standing out on the front steps of the courthouse posing for pictures. And then he's on Larry King Live while his daughter is experiencing the worst night of her life.

Michael hit the nail on the head back when LiLo first got herself in the jackpot. He was the only one who addressed his daughter's substance abuse. No one else gave a crap. Do your research .... How wrong was this guy?

Dina Lohan is the real problem. Michael blows steam ...Dina screws with her daughter's head ... while keeping her own buried in the sand.

Yes, the guy needs help himself ... but I wonder where LiLo would be without him pointing his finger at her problems? He contributed years ago that planted the seeds ... but LiLo is a big girl that has been in and out of rehab .. what? Five time now?

I mean, how much does she want to continue to blame her father when her mother laughs all the way to the bank?? When is Lilo gonna wake up?

And he did make plenty of nickels off his daughter, @#44, when he sold tapes exposing her addiction issues to RadarOnline. Which, by the way, was clearly the tipping point to Lindsay's eventual downfall.

And it is a publicity stunt, for Michael Lohan. Everything Michael Lohan does is a publicity stunt. This has nothing to do with Lindsay herself. Trust me, she's made it perfectly clear after 100 or so Twitter rants that she really does want nothing to do with him.

What about when LL was actually sentenced.
He was on E!, Larry King, Access Hollywood, Fox News, HLN

If he GENUINELY cared he would respect her wishes and realise his crazy antics aren't helping her recovery but he doesn't and just wants to leak and sell stories to the media.

@dumas1000 - and her mother gets let off the hook? Really? My... my... it is ALL Michael's fault? Please ... give me a break. Dina has made a huge fortune off of her daughter for years, while Michael worked a real job not taking one cent off of her success.

Dina was a counter girl at Bloomingdales in NYC ... didn't have two nickels to rub together. Has she had a real job since?? Nope. She has been riding her daughter's success for way too long.

I hope Michael continues to expose her for what she really is... Dina has caused way more damage to her daughter than Michael could have. He was never really around. Who was handling LiLo all these years?

DINA!!!!

Who should have demanded LiLo goes into treatment? Who?

@Ernia
Look Dina has done her best and in March 09 she tried to get LL in rehab but she refused and again in 08. There was even rumours that it was happening in 2010 before it became court ordered.

She rightfully lashed out at the Judge in July the sentence was ridiculous and there was no justification for the rehab when she hadn't failed any drug tests.
Now Lindsay is getting help.

Lindsay does need to see him one time. For the simple fact that then she can look him in the eyes and say "Micheal you have done things to me and caused me torment in the following ways etc. then she needs to look at him and say in a very firm and loud voice "I DON'T WANT ANYTHING ELSE TO DO WITH YOU GO AWAY AND STAY OUT OF MY LIFE UNTIL SUCH A TIME AS I SEE FIT TO INVITE YOU BACK IN!" Maybe then he will get the message and leave her alone and if he didn't she needs to get a restraining order. I don't think he is all to blame for her choices, after all she is an adult, but if he is not someone she wants contact with he should be made to leave her alone. Noone, not even Lindsay, should have to put up with a parent like that when she obviously wants to have no contact with him. Hopefully Lindsay can turn her life around and get sober and be productive again and Micheal is in no way going to help her do that. Leave her alone you slimy git!

For all I know, you ARE Michael Lohan in troll disguise, "Ernie." The problem is that Michael Lohan emotionally, psychologically and verbally abused his daughter when she was a young child. He physically abused her mother when she was a child. He may have even physically abused her when she was a child. And that is why Lindsay Lohan is an addict. Addiction is the result of childhood trauma, pretty much 10 outta 10 times. She watched her father beat up her mother when she was too young to do anything about it. That feeling of helplessly turned eventually inward, into guilt. And that is how an addict is born.

Or Michael Lohan could even be a craddle robber. It would not surprise if he was. Somewhere in the range of %80 of addicts were sexually abused at some point in there lives. The numbers don't lie. Is it a coincidence that Lindsay Lohan melted down on the set of Georgia Rule?

Have you seen Georgia Rule? Lindsay Lohan played a messed up teen with a drug addled past who just happened to be messed up because she had been having sex with her step dad. Lindsay fell off the wagon big time about half-way through shooting that movie and has never been the same since. Is that a coincidence? Perhaps. Perhaps not.

@Nicole .... give me a break. Dina knew all along her daughter had a substance abuse problem. She stood back and let things ride giving into her cashcow everytime. If she demanded rehab Dina's paycheck would stop. She spoiled her moneytree while Lilo self-destructed.. and if it wasn't for her father speaking up in the media Lilo could easily have been dead along time ago.

Dina ... is the real issue ...

At what point is Lindsay going to consider this stalking and get a restraining order against Michael? This guy is constantly going to the media saying he's going to force Lindsay to listen to him, he seems to know what they are doing at all times, threatened in the past to release photos and tapes of Lindsay and Dina - this guy is nuts! She's said clearly she doesn't want to see him and told him to stay away. One day he says he's filing for conservatorship, the next day he's going to force his way into Betty Ford, the next day he's opening a rehab facility....All in the name of "helping" his daughter. Why doesn't he just go and get himself help, shut is mouth for once, and get an actual job!?!
