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."

Considering that she could say something that could 1) send her to jail/prison 2) remove whatever leverage she has left with her felony charge 3) discourage any potential job offers she may get (right now she's infamous, but someone will work with her; i.e. Machete), yes it is a great idea for her NOT to appear. IDK if it was SCH, Larry Rudolph, or Lou Taylor, or all of the above, but someone thought this one through. Little good can come of her being in the spotlight before she gets all this criminal crap straight. Limiting exploitation would be a great plan!

So--Michael Lohan feels putting his daughter on "Letterman", where she has been the brunt of jokes, would be something "positive" in her life? What a messed up family.

i haven't seen any hollywood management contracts but they're probably not all that different. that means? the management people get paid FIRST then they pay their client the agreed upon amount. the checks go straight to them not to lindsay. how did he think he was gonna get paid for this? or does he think that since its "his" daughter he can ignore any contracts she may already be under? what an idiot. well now finally after all these years he knows, you can't arrange appearances with lindsay, just her management AND they may not even pay YOU. thats where the majority of these lawsuits start, "i didn't get paid for the work i did" well did you ever check with the people who actually have the money first before performing services? usually not, just a drunk starlet. and man is it ever hard to get paid thay way,lol

Personally, I think Lilty was just trying to punk Letterman since he punked her on the Top 10 at the Grammy's. All those Lohans seem to seek retribution of some sort (lawsuit, negative press, etc) when someone is "mean" to them. Truly, a more hysterical, gross, trashy family has not existed before!

I, too, always suspected there was something "off" about the Lohan's. Lindsay is too messed up. It almost seems like she is trying to kill herself. Maybe deep down she really IS trying to be blacklisted in Hollywood so she doesn't have to support her creepy family anymore. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it came out that there was incest in that family. Here are some signs of incest:

Cutting (Lindsey is a know "cutter")
Stealing ('nuff said)
Drug or alcohol use (Lindsay does both)
Fear of the dark (Lindsay is terrified of being alone at night)
Lying
Changes in eating habits (Lindsay had anorexia)
Suicidal (reportedly, she attempted suicide twice)

When I first heard about how she was terrified of being alone at night, that's when the alarm bells went off. I really think Child Protective Services should investigate that family.

You know, for once, I kind of sort of agree with Mikey Boy. Maybe it would have been good for her to get off her drug-addled butt and do some creative work for a change. I would never ever watch her in anything but someone else might. And she really needs to change her direction, so for that I give Mikey some credit.
