Michael Lohan

I Booked Lindsay on Letterman

2/16/2011 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan has revealed HE is the mystery person who booked Lindsay Lohan on "Letterman" this week ... and tells TMZ he only signed her up after getting the green light from Lindsay herself.

Lindsay Lohan Letterman

In case you haven't heard -- Letterman had to issue a retraction this morning, explaining Lindsay would not be doing the "Top 10" bit on Thursday as they had announced yesterday -- after Lindsay tweeted that she NEVER agreed to do the show.

Letterman's people released a statement explaining how someone "purporting to be a friend of Lindsays" reached out to them and made the booking ... but Dave's camp didn't reveal the name of the friend.

But Michael says he was behind it -- telling TMZ he got the idea after Dave cracked a joke at Lindsay's expense during Friday's "Top 10" ... and Lindsay was into it. 

Michael says Lindsay "knew full well" about the booking ... they even discussed transportation from the L.A. studio, where Lindsay would be doing the bit via satellite.

Michael insists everything was going smoothly  -- until Lindsay's reps got wind of the appearance and shut it down.

Now, Michael tells us he's pissed -- adding, "Anything positive that I bring into her life ... [her people] try to nix it."

The Lohans are desperate for money and are basically broke. Michael Lohan is paying Lindsays bills now and He's got the family believing he's got more money than he does. Its all about to cave in on the Loonhan Clan.

I am not the least bit fond of Michael (i.e. John Smith, Sitting Bull, Puckett, et all), but I do think the guy has a point.

But just like everything else in Lindsay's life, she screws it up.

I personally think it would have been a positive thing for Lindsay to be in the public eye NOT doing something stupid.

"Lindsay's reps" being SCH of course. After nearly ripping her Stress Ball in half, SCH laughed and said to herself, "Yep, by the time I'm done with this chick I'm buying a whole CHAIN of islands."

Bullsh*t she knew and she would have gone through her management had she agreed to anything, not have her father book it. he is endlessly trying to make deals behind her back.

Thank god for Management looking out for her and protecting her from this idiot sperm donor. She needs to get rid of him once and for all.

By "management" are you referring to her Mom, Dina? If so, yikes! Nicole has been doing a bang-up job here on the TMZ board "managing" LieLo's image thus far.

The only person in the world that actually WANTED to work with her, and she doesn't want to do it?
She won't be around much longer anyway - she is uninsurable and no one else wants to work with her.

Lindsays is always referred to as the Mean Girl actress - that movie was 8 years ago!

Lindsay is broke and has to rely on her father who she hates and wouldn't even talk to until she went bust. She doesn't work, is looking at going to jail for felony theft, and she got dumped by the ugliest lesbian I've ever seen.

no, by management i mean her business manager, lou taylor and what was last reported her manager larry rudolph. the same people michael has been attacking in the press because he can't get control of lindsay like he wants to. even dina wouldn't agree to this crap he's pulling. no one in his family wants anything to do with him and i hope lindsay sees now he will never change.

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

No wonder Lindsay is such an Idiot. With such Idiotic parents, she never had a chance. They should all shut up, get their GEDS and try to find jobs at Walmart. However, they are all such stupid nutcases, Walmart probably wouldn't want them either. What a deranged family.

I'm not sure anything other then becoming a REAL NUN would do anything positive for her in this life.
