Michael Lohan Storms the Desert -- Rehab Bound

10/18/2010 11:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan has arrived in Palm Springs ... photographed this morning at a hotel just miles from the Betty Ford clinic where Lindsay Lohan is receiving treatment ... and TMZ has learned he's got a new plan to see his daughter that he intends to execute in just a few hours.

We're told Michael knows it's currently "Family Week" at Betty Ford ... and thinks he should be included in any "family counseling sessions" that go down over the next few days. If Michael isn't allowed inside the clinic, we're told he plans to drop off a letter that he hopes will get to Lindsay.

When called for comment, Michael told us, "If Lindsay's problems stem from me, then I should be involved in the treatment ... right?"

Sources close to the family tell us Dina is currently "on her way" to Palm Springs ... but she'll actually be allowed inside the rehab center.

This guy is incredible! If you were the problem then the problem should be eliminated. You had many chances to straighten up your act when she was more at reach. You screwed up bad. Your time is over. Move on. She doesn't want you. leave!

He is a despicable human being and evidently, has no shame. I don't understand why he can't wrap his head around the fact that she does not want to see him.

This is a staged event to generate sympathy for her on Friday in court. Boohoo, it's all his fault.......

I still don't get it... How is her attention seeking, money grabbing, useless Mother able to get in? She's already shopping post-rehad interviews! That is wrong in every way. I understand Lindsay may want to see her but wasn't she enabling her? I seriously don't get this! Rehab is completely different for celebrities than normal people.

Well...it IS true. If her problems stem from him, how on earth can she resolve those problems without confronting him? Better to deal with it while in that environment.
Meanwhile, Mama Lohan IS allowed in; she needs to discuss finances with Lindsay, I'm sure.

@jay is that your twitter account Jay ? Because it sure as hell isn't Lindsay's and you keep bringing it up. For those wanting to read her tweets you can spare yourself the trouble : she's not using twitter at ALL in BFC . Her ONLY twitter account is
http://twitter.com/lindsaylohan

All others are fake ( and also not VERIFIED )

Interesting that his convoluted logic - that if the issues stem from him, then he should be involved in the recovery is like saying that if someone has issues stemming from taking cocaine then taking cocaine should be involved in recovery.....
Michael Lohan is not correct in his assessment. If she truly has issues (as an adult child of someone who is extremely toxic) then forcing her to involve herself with that person as an adult is definitely the wrong thing to do .

How convenient Michael Lohan was snapped at a hotel in palm springs, just as convenient when he was snapped in the car park of BF last week. This idiot stages all the pics. he sells them and THATS how he makes his money. Comments, interviews and pics, all off the coat tails of his daughter Lindsay.

Those of you who say Lindsy should give him a chance...why? she gave him so many chances in the past I've lost count. He went to family therapy with her in 2007 and within months he was blabbing to the media again. Lindsay even forgave THAT. She has given him so many chances since then. The last straw for Lindsay came when he sold the tapes and tried to sell pages of her 2007 diary. Lindsay has had enough, who can blame her?
