Michael Lohan Bails on Betty Ford Mission

10/19/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan is giving up on his hell-bent attempt to see Lindsay inside the Betty Ford Center -- and he claims Dina Lohan is the reason why he abruptly skipped town.

Michael says Dina showed up in Palm Springs yesterday armed with the protective order she has against Michael. The document states Michael must stay 100 yards away from Dina at all times. 

Michael says he didn't want to cause a problem for Lindsay during Dina's visit -- it's Family Week at Betty Ford -- so Daddy Dearest hightailed it back to L.A.

If you had a daughter that was an addict and you had a 16 year old daughter, would you send that said daughter across country to live with the drug addict? I don't think ANY good parent would. So either Dina was in denial, or she is a bad Mother. You choose...

Some of you make out that Dina is some sort of educational genuius. Remember... she was a countergirl at Bloomingdales... not much education needed there.

It is no wonder you don't hear too much out of her mouth. It seems like everytime she opens it she place her foot right in. She is lucky to be able to put three sentences together to make a paragraph. Just listen to her interviews.

I am not saying Michael is any better .... they both need to take some public speaking courses... but Dina is not the sharpest knife in the bunch.

@ilovegossip

let me ask you. did lindsay ever put ali in danger? did ali ever once get physically hurt being with lindsay? was she seen out every night partying with lindsay?

being an addict doesn't make you a bad person and it's clear ali adores her sister and wanted to spend time with her and maybe having her there was good for lindsay as well.

Dina shouldn't be making this decision for Lindsay. Using a protective order to fend off Lindsay's father is disgusting. LL should have a sole and separate relationship with her dad-after all she is an adult and has been for years. He wants to go to family counseling and Dina is blocking it in the most underhanded way. She's taking away Lindsay's choice in the matter. It seems it's time to forgive your dad and work on how you are going to move forward. It won't work any other way and this will become a life long problem, Linds. This is the worst mother on the planet. Just disgusting!

Poster No. 85 @ Jill (Dina Lohan):

This woman is Dina Lohan. She posts on the ROL website as Jill09. She spews the most ridiculous defense of anything Dina does or any decision she makes. It's very clear to all who watch her who she really IS.

To put Ali Lohan with a drug addict while underage and without supervision is not a sound decision and yet look at what she states. She would like us to believe that if nothing happened, it's all just fine. That's absurd. You don't test fate or wait until something happens.

Ha ha... Jill...why don't you google pictures of Ali out with Lindsay until all hours, etc. Yes, she did take Ali out partying, thus putting her life in danger. Luckily she couldn't drive at the time. That was probably the only saving grace.

So, you would send your own daughter to live with a drug addict? You and Dina could be twins!

How will Americans react when the government begins to impose the same austerity measures that are causing riots, street battles, fuel blockades and other assorted chaos in France? Will we witness mass civil unrest or will the sleeping middle class continue to scratch there butts and watch dancing with the stars, or worry about which Lohan parent is worse?

I know there are plenty of worse fathers then Michael, but he's still a pretty lousy parent, concocting an idiotic plan to relapse on purpose isn't going to help anybody, even Michael himself seems to have realized that since he decided to give up his futile attempts to break into BF to see Lindsay, which is seemingly the first thing that he's done that actually makes sense, hopefully he'll be smart enough to stay the hell away from Lindsay until she's good and ready to talk with him, also hopefully Lindsay will take the advice of her counselor and fires her mother.

I'm not talking about being out late. you said taking her to clubs not being out late. she took ali to one club, which was a really stupid mistake on her part. Every other time she went to clubs lindsay was out with her friends and didn't bring ali with her.
