Michael Lohan

I'm Gettin' Conservatorship

For Lindsay

10/22/2012 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

This is ridiculous. Lindsay would have to meet with a mental health expert and get a proper diagnosis to even have a chance of a converatorship being granted. Lindsay has no kids and is an adult woman. She is allowed to live her life however she chooses. Michael Lohan needs to stop taking paychecks from TMZ, RadarOnline and X17 and STFU and GTFO out of Lindsay's life.

She should escape the country now. He only wants her money and couldn't care less for her health.

Rehab is a joke and a get out of prison card for those who have money. It doesn't work. If you doubt this then go on youtube and watch Peller and Teller rib the 12 steps apart.

Sounds as though Momzilla is still calling the shots. I've seen these unhealthy stage mom / daughter alliances up close, and it's always love / hate with them. Michael is no saint, but he's also in a no win situation. And I suspect he's a more than willing co-conspirator in this drama. And as long as outlets like TMZ are there to cover the proceedings, no one is actually going to walk away from it.

Michael Lohan has this "I want a Conservatorship on Lindsay" on a loop. It will never happen.

One thing I find strange is that TMZ have not asked Shawn, Evan or Dave for a comment on Milo's intervention story, why not? They usually ask for their reaction and then we have something like "they refused to comment". Also why didn't TMZ show us the emails Michael Lohan said were from Shawn, Evan and Dave? they usually post such "evidence" Something is brewing. I'm still awaiting a statement from Lindsays lawyers and manager.

Not happening, just like the 2-3 other times the child abusing, woman beating s***bad tried this. Oh, and Lindsay or "a source close to Lindsay" (totally not Dina Lohan) will dispute this. I find this whlole thing amusing. Lindsay, I know you read this, you're a joke now. The punchlne, not the headline. You live for this. Pretend to be mad, you want your name on here. I feel sorry for your brother and sisters who have to live under this rain of **** called your life and your parents lives. But what do you care? You never have, you never will. Oh Dina and Michael, since you read this also, leave your adult daughter alone. She is an adult and if she wants to be a drunk or a drug addict or a whore or whatever, it's her right. Get your lives in order, which they aren't. Neither of you care about her, you just want the publicity. Sad, but this is the life you've chosen. If you think you're in Hell Lindsay, well it's the Hell you created.

Welcome to your happiness, Population 1.

You can't get a conservatorship for someone who is still fully CAPABLE of making their own decisions, but just keeps making CRAP DECISIONS. I know of someone who is under conservatorship - he has schizophrenia and kept having psychotic meltdowns with hallucinations where he would do stuff like threaten to kill someone or buy a one way plane ticket to Siberia, or go around smashing people's computers because he thought people were using them to mindcontrol him (Britney's episode where she barricaded herself in the toilet with her kids reminded me of stuff this guy would do). Lindsay doesn't do crazy stuff because she's out of her mind then later regrets it, she does this stuff because she's a nasty p.o.s made worse by her continued involvement with her terrible family. She never regrets anything because she's a nasty, selfish person inside. She *could* decide to change and clean up her life if she really wanted to, but she doesn't, because she's too arrogant to admit anything needs to change.

IT IS A VERY SAD STORY ... when neither her mother or father are responsible, sane or sober enough to even be considered for conservatorship.
Wish him luck though ... a conservatorship is probably the only thing that will save her life - it will just be tough pulling it off when forced to use someone outside their family. Her mom and dad are just about as messed up as she it.

Maybe TMZ will get a conservatorship for its writers, so that they don't call Michael "her" in their article. Illiteracy is contagious. Don't be a disease, moron.

Conservatorships are the new black, didn't you know?

This should have been done a LONG time ago. Unfortunately it's too late now. Most, if not all, her money is gone. But I applaud Michael for doing this (assuming it's true), and that he's not asking to be the conservator. You don't see Dina doing that. She doesn't want to lose her gravy train.

How much are you paying Michael every month to rat out his daughter? Obviously, it's a lot because he never seems to have a job.
