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. .

michael lohan should be able to visit with his daughter, and lindsay should be pushed to have intensive therapy with her dad, and each of her family members..absolutely. her mother is as sick as she is. her father wants family therapy. half of these commentors are as sick as dina and lindsay...sadly.

@Nicole .... well... what is she waiting for? Get the orange jumpsuit ... and do your time. Why bail out? She wasted 30 grand. Just lay on your bunk ... do your time ... and be done with it.

HOWEVER, dear Nicole. That will not be the end of Lilo's problems. Now will it?

She needs 12 months ... at least... in a program that works.. and has proven stats. BFC refused to release any stats. Geee. I wonder why?

Well Ernie apparently she IS listening, if she wasn't then she never would've checked into Betty Ford in the first place would she? But taking advice form Michael Lohan is like taking advice from a gangbanger, it'll only create more problems for her, she already forgave him 3 years ago and how did he repay her, by muothing off to the media as usual and selling tapes to Radaronline and attmpeting to sell Lindsay's diary, he had his chance to be back in her life and he threw it all away just so he could make a fast buck, how does anyone know Michale isn't going to do the exact same thing this time around? NONODY has ANY reason whatsoever to trust that deranged psychopath of a dad, he's proven time and time again that he only cares about making money and nothing else. The only way that Michael can possibly change is if he gets arrested and NONE of his family appears in the courtroom or visits him in prison, maybe then he'll realize what a horrible person he's been to her and he'll want to change

@darkage6 .... Michael did all that because Lilo did not continue on the straight and narrow. She went right back into using... and partying ... and thumbed her nose at everyone .. including her family, friends, judge, fans ... you and me.

We care more about her then she does.

I hope she is finally getting it ... cause you can only blame so many people for your troubles until there is none left ....

@Ernie
She did the right thing by bailing out when it wasn't an actual sentence so she would never have been released until the hearing when she was actually going to be sentenced.

I'm just saying on Friday she will be weighing up her options to get off probation.
If she got court ordered to months of rehab with more formal probation why would she agree to that when it is just more time to violate and she wants to put this behind her.
As i've said repeatedly this case is a complete joke and the only reason she is on probation is because of that bitch Marsha Revel when she has done everything.

"Michael Lohan -- Am I On the List?"

I'm sure you're on several lists of known douche bags.

Lindsay is in rehab now and everything about her tragic life should be quiet and beginning the slide into her past, and instead Michael Lohan is here on the "outside" kicking up a stink, remaining very loud and vocal in the press and keeping all this mess in Lindsay's life alive. Harvey Levin could help in making that stop.

@Nicole.... I beg to differ. The only reason LiLo is where she is at right now ... is Lilo. Please stop making excuses for her behavior. My gosh... you sound just as bad as she does. She has not given a flying "f" for along time. I mean... two failed drug tests since she was released??? Please.... give me an all American break.

She could have just stayed in jail... got her Oct. 22 court date and most likely would have been give time served with no additional probation.

You make it seem like people were forcing Lindsay to use. She used because she used... and the judicial is only doing its' part to save her life... that's all.

I'm a nurse, and in the hospital the rule is that if an individual doesn't want to see a particular person, for whatever reason. The staff have the right to refuse that person access to that individual, when they're at that particular institution.

Not sure, what a private clinic, in the States is like. Each institution have their particular regulations to follow. But I think, if Lindsay says no, then he shouldn't be allowed access.

"Ernie" if you only had half a clue as what goes on behind closed doors. Mommy and daddy being together does not mean there isn't abuse happening you dolt. Addicts are born from abuse the sooner you can get that through your enlarged head the better off this world would be at healing the severely wounded. But you have zero interest in seeing anyone healed how would you survive if you didn't have people to beat down?

@Aliceglass

that's exactly what will happen. he can call every person at betty ford and he won't get in. lindsay didn't put him on the visitors list in jail, she didn't allow him access at ucla, she won't allow him access now. he just refuses to see that and he loves the attention he's getting for his stalking and in his eyes sees nothing wrong with it.

Oh so the only reason Michael did all that stuff was to try and straighten Lindsay out, yeah that makes perfect sense if you're a lunatic like Michael Lohan! That has to be the DUMBEST thing I have EVER heard, You Ernie are starting to sound every bit as insane as Michael himself(unless you ARE Michael of course, in which case GTFO and leave Lindsay alone until SHE wants to talk to you!) No one may have forced Lindsay to use, but her dad's horrible treatment of her before she went out of control was certainly what sent her down that road in the first place, if I had someone as awful as Michael for a father I would definitely want to do drugs myself and i'll bet you would too, the one thing about Michael you absolutely CANNOT defend is him beating Dina in front of Lindsay when she was younger, i'd LOVE to hear you justify that! I know you're probably going to say that she made it up and it didn't really happen, well you don't know what's going on behind-the-scenes with her do you? So you really have no idea what the hell you're talking about, so why don't you(along with weed) stop wasting your time defending this worthless excuse for a father. If Michael dies for whatever reason then NO ONE will mourn him, especially not Lindsay.

@Ernie
No one gets what she got on July 6th it was just completely outwith the realms of probability for a minor misdemeanor probation violation.
She should have stayed clean but she risked it and got caught.
Prior to her September 7th relapse she wasn't using since at least May so the stress and pressure of the last few months got to her.

It's the same way here in the states, Alice. Nobody gets in if they aren't on the list of approved visitors. The only exception is law enforcement by warrant/probable cause or by court order.

Michael Lohan definitely had his bad moments. He screwed up and doesn't want his daughter to do the same thing.

If he wasn't trying then everyone would say he's an #@$hole who abandoned his daughter. He can't win.

I'm not saying he's perfect, or even the best character in town, but he's been there done that and is gonna call her on her BS. A little while back he kept saying Lindsay had a drug addiction and she needs serious help. Everyone called him an idiot and leave her alone. Well guess what, he was right!!

Did anyone ever stop to think, hey maybe this FATHER actually might love his daughter. Michael Lohan's problems are all out there for everyone to see, for us to criticize, but Dina's aren't..if anyone knows, he knows damn well what Dina's problems are and he knows why she isn't good for Lindsay.

Lindsay, you might hate your dad, find peace with him, not saying be his best friend, but talk to him, he might have some good advice, he doesn't want you to make the same mistakes he did.
