We joked about it on TMZ TV this week -- that the name "Michael Lohan Jr." was holding him back in life. Now ... sources close to Junior tell us he had been thinking about changing his name for awhile, but our TV segment was the straw that broke the absentee camel's back.

Sources close to the Lohan clan tell us The Artist Soon To Be Formally Known Michael Lohan Jr. will be changing his name to ... Michael Cameron. We're told Michael plans on using the name starting with the upcoming movie he's starring in, produced by his mom Dina.

Why doesn't he get a real job? He has an education.

Fameho being led down the wrong path by his mother.

He comes to supposedly support his sister who was just released from rehab and he goes to a club to hear a band.

He was sooo friggin excited that the paps were talking to HIM.

I don't like him at all, used to think he was maybe the sane one. Not.

Good for you boy! If I was saddled with the HOHAN last name? I'd be changing it TOO...and any old name would do, but I think the kid picked a winner, maybe they'll think he's James Cameron's kid huh? (crossing fingers).

@8 how embarrassing Michael is. What a joke.


I have to give the kid credit, at least he knows being a Lohan is toxic. Can't wait to hear Michael's response to why his own kid doesn't want to be known as a "Michael Jr" Sure he has some lame excuse or is coming up with one as we speak.

Sounds like a complete line of BS made up by Dina as a way to publicize her make-believe movie and insult her ex-husband at the same time.

Thinkabout-it    

Is he changing his name b/c of his ex-con ass-clown father, trainwreck jailbird sister, or delusional "whore your kids out" mother? Hmmm.....

I think he'd be smarter to take advantage of the last name, and go with something like

Mickey Lohan

He's changing his name to avoid being connected to his FATHER? How cute is that. I don't suppose it has anything to with being connected to a sister that will soon be doing serious time in the pokey. Dina is already grooming the next up-and-coming washed-up star of the future! Gotta keep those pockets brimming during the prison down-time, I guess!
