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.

It is to bad her mom isn't in there also. She is a terrible mom and uses her daughter for her money and drugs I am sure. This woman is a loser.

These two are the world's worst parents, ever. Everything they do is a famewhore to ride on their screwed up daughter's coattails and create more drama to sell to the media.

That "woman" got Lindsay a very successful career as a child actress and model, by 12 years old Lindsay made most money than almost anyone here will make in their entire lifetime. Mike the leech is trying to sue Dina for half of her management fees of 15%, which is pretty standard, during the he was in JAIL for felony violation of parole and did nearly 3 years. Who's the bad parent and leech again? She got a career for her child who love acting and was good at it. She didn't sit around and collect money for doing nothing. Any other manager would have been paid the same. I do agree it's time for her to just be Mom and her support system, she needs one parent who has zero agenda and only wants to be there for Lindsay's much support system. But she did a great job for her daughter, it's just time to move on to a different level. She deserves credit for the good she did too.

If the story is true, sharing ANY information about his daughter, visitation with her daughter, and comments about his ex is evidence of this man's total lack of concern for anyone but himself. If he thinks the negative publicity he is deliberately generating is helpful to her image - he needs to have his head examined, seriously. Rehab is not a good thing to capitalize on for one's image and private family matters are just that - PRIVATE. Clearly, he appears to lack the intelligence and emotional maturity to separate himself from what is private and what is show business. She does not owe her parents anything.

DURN!!!!

DURN!! DURN!!! **DURN!!!***

(... um, DARN!, that is ...)


NOT!!! what I was hoping for ... !

... well -- at least it was a 50% reduction in toxicity -- maybe ...

I was **REALLY** hoping that BOTH parents would show up at BF and they would put them both in straight jackets and tie them to chairs and let Lindsay "lead" them through a little "counseling" session of her own ...

... there should be LOTS an' LOTS an' ***LOTS*** of anger issues there -- everybody is the victim ... DEEP PERSONAL LOSS RESULTING IN PAIN, FEAR, REJECTION, AND A HOST OF OTHER DYNAMIC MATERIAL WHICH IS THE BEDROCK FOR ALL KINDS OF DISFUNCTIONAL BEHAVIOR such as we have witnessed with these three for the past so many (TOO many) years -- and it's everybody elses fault.

I REALLY HAD HOPED ... that somehow they could all be chained down in a room and not allowed to leave until it's ******ALL****** frggn OUT! There is just **SO** **MUCH** ... fecal material in these peoples' psyches -- so much ambivalence -

- how CAN YOU HATE SOMEONE you're "SUPPOSED TO LOVE" SO MUCH?

- how can you LOVE SOMEONE you HATE SO MUCH?

.. of course, at the bottom of it all are the hold-outs -- the deep dark secrets, the liabilities -- financial, personal -- if they ever came out ... the hold out blackmail ...

CLEARLY -- ALL of them are holding on to the trump cards they have to play -- and trying to calculate against each other if they will ever make it through this life without having the cards played against them --

... or has it finally reached the point where it's time to just damn it all to hell and play the cards --

- obviously the preferred resolution would be to have everybody lay their cards face down on the table and just walk away ...

... but you have to get everybody to the table -- and in the game...

... don't see that happening yet --

Any clinic/counselor knows that the presenting symptoms are only the tip of the iceberg -- many times only the most miniscule tip --

Lindsay,

I continue to pray ...

Yes, for all of your family, of course.

But for you specifically ... that YOU come to know The Love of your Heavenly Father Who Created you and Loves you -- more than anyone ever can -- FOREVER!

Each of us is created by our Heavenly Father Whose Intentions for you creating you are Only Good. And He Loves you, Lindsay, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE! -- because that's who He created you to be!

He created each of us -- including you, Lindsay -- to live in a relationship of Love with Him.

To Know Him.

To know how much He loves you.

This is for EACH of us, Lindsay.

It has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH *ANY* ONE ELSE -- PERIOD!

That includes your parents, your friends, your enemies, your "friendemies" -- ANY ONE !!!

THERE IS **NO** **ONE** and **NO** **THING** THAT CAN COME BETWEEN YOU AND GOD'S LOVE FOR YOU.

PERIOD.

... however -- YOU CAN choose to turn away from Him -- many people do (I did -- many times ... too many times ...)

But He still loved me -- He kept me safe -- even when I hurt myself with my own foolishness -- sound familiar? There are many, MANY who can say the same ...

.. yet He still loved me, and he kept saying, "come back -- I Love you"

... and one day, when I didn't have any where else to turn, I turned -- back -- to Him. (n... I wasn't destitute financially, I just simply had NO OTHER HOPE of EVER finding a TRUE, ETERNAL, UNCONDITIONALLY-ACCEPTING LOVE ANYWHERE ... except ...)

-- and He caught me -- in His Eternal Ever-Loving Arms -- finally, forever.

... no -- my family did not come back together; no -- life's problems did not go away -- in fact, you will find that following Him brings some problems (which those who do not follow Him do not have ... ) -- but believe me, those kinds of problems are the 'right' kind of problems to have ..

... no -- I was not able to forgive everyone who ever hurt me -- at least, not right away ...

... no -- you may not be able to forgive your parents completely right away ...

... no -- I did not become an "I love everyone" sponge -- the fact is, I do "love everyone" as much as I am able -- because He tells me that I should love who He loves. It's just that I'm not able to love every one -- and He knows that -- and He understands, and He helps me grow so that I can love more people, better --

... no - even though I trust Him completely, and somewhat trust others of those who also trust Him, I do not trust everyone completely -- including my parents -- because everyone I know -- including my parents -- is human -- just like me. And therefore messes up -- just like me. So I only Trust Him completely ...

... no -- you will only be able to trust your parents -- each of them -- but so much; you will need to be very honest with yourself and them about what you can trust, set the boundaries, and NOT accommodate ANY trespasses of those boundaries.

... sometimes the most loving thing to say is "no". That kind of love is always hard to learn -- at any age -- your age, your parents' age ... I'm still learning, but I am learning that when He says, "no", it's a Very Loving "no".

I am praying, Lindsay -- you have your entire life ahead --

... with Him,

... in His Love --

... the sooner, the better,


In His Love,

your Affectionate Fan

@ Lindsays Friend

What a wonderful message of hope. Praise the Lord!!! He is able to bring all of us through as we continue to place our faith and trust in Him!

I agree with you in prayer that God will use this opportunity to draw Lindsay's right into His loving arms and transform her into the person she always dreamed she could be.

When I was in REHAB, family was not allowed for the first several weeks. They're usually at the root of the problem.
