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."

@ Futmz ... if that's the case ... so be it. But in the meantime... stay home ... wait out your hearing ... then move forward ... either in jail or David Letterman... or whatever.

Do not do one thing to add insult to injury. You got yourself into this mess ... so don't go discounting the seriousness of the situation. If you have the money ... go ahead and throw it... but from the looks of things.... she hasn't done it yet. Cause she still has to be in court next week.

Lindsay, keep your parents as parents. Not as business people. They suck at that.

Don't you have agents who can handle stuff like this so that you don't look like an amateur? If you are going to ever come back, you need to look like a complete professional who has her s*** together.

I agree with John....Most workplaces today require drug testing but in Hollywood, you are actually rewarded for bad behavior...the list goes on and on and reality tv is the worse of the worse.

@ MacGuffin

she does have an agent and professional management. it's the reason michael hasn't been able to get away with the deals behind lindsay's back. they keep finding out about them and stopping them from happening. it's why he's constantly attacking them to the media.

Hollywood is the stranged city in the world.

Years ago you would never hear of its celebrities troubles. They would be taken care of by the "studio bosses."

Now... it is anything goes... and the paps make sure to try to keep all of these problem people in line by snapping their photos or allowing them to air their dirty laundry right here in front of our eyes.

Nothing is sacred in Hollywood.

The celebrities do get some slack in the courts cause of just who they are. Remember... this is where they pay their huge tax bills and get many people in jobs.

There is no town like it... anywhere.

Enough already! "Anything positive that I bring into her life ... [her people] try to nix it." Hahaha, whatever. You want to do something POSITIVE for her, then be a PARENT and put her ass in a rehab where she has to stay there, and NOT come and go as she pleases. Seems like the WHOLE Lohan family needs rehab.

Dina doesn't have to do anything. michael's been screwing his chances up with lindsay all by himself by still attacking dina in the media, talking about lindsay every chance he gets even after he promised he wouldn't, trying to make a deal with dawn holland behind lindsay's back and now this.

i'm just waiting for when he's done with his chances and he will be just like last time.

Lindsay is using her father now, a little quid pro quo IMO.

He's giving her $$$$ while she's broke and helps her move etc.

LMAO, he doesn't have any money to give her and he staged a photo op showing him holding one box the day of her move and they went home. he was never even spotted at the new house the day of the move.

going on a TV show is some serious stuff , this clown should understand that Lindsay is a serious professional, and absolutely she doesn't need a joker to take care of her business.

Nothing more positive should happen right now then for Lindsay Lohan to get her life in order. That means... showing up in court next week ... taking whatever happens as a chance to get better and move on with her life.

Her family can not save her right now. She needs to woman-up ... face reality the way it really is ... and quick this pretending there is nothing wrong... that something magical is going to just move you through life without accepting responsibility for her actions.

She is on probation ... going to court NEXT WEEK ... not three months from now ... and is facing serious consquences ... either way ...

Therefore, work some other time on televison ... if she wants to work book a photoshoot behind closed doors. ... But not national television and certainly not on joker David Letterman... what was Michael Lohan thinking????

I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT A RECENT RUN IN WITH A PSYCHIC I HAD. HE INFORMED ME THAT ALL DISNEY STARS HAVE A CURSE ON THEM. THIS CURSE IS WAS PLACED ON THE DISNEY LOTS WHICH SHOOT POPULAR DISNEY TELEVISION SHOWS AND MOVIES. THIS CURSE IS EVIL AND THESE STARS ARE DOOMED TO FIFTY YEARS OF HORRIBLE LUCK. THIS IS SERIOUS NEWS AND I WISH YOU WOULD REPORT OF THIS ON YOUR SITE, THEY CAN BE SAVED!!

SINCERELY,
A CONCERNED READER
