Michael Lohan

I'm Gettin' Conservatorship

For Lindsay

Michael Lohan
will go to court in an attempt to get a conservatorship for his daughter, Lindsay Lohan ... TMZ has learned.

Michael has told an attorney, his daughter is in the danger zone ... a substance abuser, he says, who is hanging with the wrong group of people, including Dina Lohan.

Michael will meet with lawyers early this week, and there's one thing he does want -- he will NOT become Lindsay's conservator, because he doesn't want to run her finances so people will pass it off as a money grab.  We're told Michael wants the judge to decide who to appoint conservator, but he says it CAN'T be Dina.

Michael told the lawyer the first thing he will do if there's a conservatorship is convince the conservator to send Lindsay to rehab, without the influence of the other people in her life.  Michael says every time Lindsay has been to rehab -- including at Cirque Lodge and Betty Ford -- "She went in dirty and didn't come out clean," and he blames it on the people in her life who helped fuel her addiction.

Michael also told the lawyer he wants the conservator to somehow convince Dina that they need family therapy.  He says Dina has always refused it in the past, and it has been a big stumbling block in Lindsay's recovery. 

We broke the story ... Lindsay's entire management team, including her lawyers, were all involved in Michael's attempted intervention Friday.  Turns out ... it wasn't just his idea.  People are alarmed.

Ummm I think her dad needs someone to get a conservatorship on him, he's by no means a stable role model.

She has to hit her bottom and only then will she get better, sometimes people never hit their bottom as she has the money to fuel her bad habits and a mother that is making things worse by doing the same drugs she dose and using her for her money because she the mom has not hit her bottom yet also. In time this child will end up mental if she don't hit her bottom and sometimes they have mental issues and use drugs to make up for that. The thing is as you may know her through the web and papers- you still don't know her personalty so you can say for sure she is not mentally impaired, Its hard on a father watching their daughter destroy their life and its crushing him , seeing he has a beautiful talented daughter that is over and over again making bad choices and all he can do is watch it. I hope that they give him or someone rights over her fiances seeing she is in no place to make any good choices and is blowing her money like crazy. She is incompetent due to drugs and drinking and may be mentally ill. I feel its very hard for stars to hit the bottom they need to get sober and clean because they have so much money and people to get the drugs from. Once she got sober she would see how many people stuck around usually its none of your old friends because all they wanted was the drugs and money, then if she got sober she would be strong enough to refuse her mother and stop helping her then maybe her mom would clean up. Its hard here you know as If she don't want help , no help in the world will help her till she hits her bottom. This girl has a lot of talent and is very pretty she just needs to hit her bottom

I see no classic signs of mental illness in Lindsay because she's too CONSISTANTLY awful to be either bi-polar or schizophrenic. Both these types of people usually have times of clarity where they can see what they are doing is crazy/wrong and they need help. People with these types of mental illness might benefit from a conservatorship to give them a window of stability until they have learned how to managed their meds. Lindsay isn't schizoid - just consistantly mean and nasty. She makes poor choices, but she makes them in a fully self-aware, self consistant manner. She *does* I think have a mental illness, but it is some sort of sociopathy or narcissism - these people fall firmly into the "can't be helped unless they decide to help themselves category".

Milo is completely crazy if he thinks any sane person will give him a conservatorship over anyone, first off he's screwed up far too many times for anyone to give him a recommendation, secondly Lindsay isn't like Britney was, she's perfectly capable of taking care of herself, so this is just another pathetic plea for attention from Milo.

The fact that Michael doesn't want 2 be the conservator gives him a porcentage of chance. Maybe Shawn would be the best option but I doubt she would be up for the torture of being Lindsay conservator and having 2 deal with these 2 maniacs (Dina and Michael)

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

Haven't we been down this path in the past? NEVER GONNA HAPPEN! You can't get a conservatorship for an addict. Period.

There's no freakin' way that any judge is going to allow Michael Lohan to be in charge of Lindsay. Not with his record - he's not the same dad that Britney has. Hopefully, there's someone in the extended family who actually is normal.

The only person that has failed Lindsay is herself. She will join the 6 feet under club soon enough, we just need to sit back and wait. Can't help the unwilling and given her record she has no intention of getting help anytime soon. Maybe her dad needs to pitch in enough money for her to buy enough coke for her to accomplish her goal of a overdose and get it over with.If need be I will also pitch in a few bucks. So sick of hearing about her and her loser mom.
