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.

I'm starting to believe his story. If he truly doesn't apply to take over but rather just petitions for a conservatorship, I think it's a good idea. Clearly, her mother is a terrible influence - both of them are addicts.

There's nothing to conserve. She's broke and unemployable. I thought she was relocating to NY. Please, will all the Lohan's leave Los Angeles?

"Judge my daughter is not responsiable for her action she needs Rehab and a conservator....you can't put her in jail or voilate her probation.....Give me one more last chance I know I can change her"
As Little Judge said...."See a Pattern ! " hell only a blind man wouldn't they are showing in in 50 foot neon lights........
Dina needs money for her house cause you know by now the bank has served those papers they were trying to serve during the fight...
Milo needs money for the new baby...but is I think really using any resources he has to for her into rebab ...the man is not blind...Stupid but not blind...He just needs to expect the fact that this child of his is a group assed woman and doesn't want his help...She doesn't want to be saved...and tough as it is ...Let it go....Go home and care for the ones you can......and don't answer the phone the Next time she calls let her learn the hard way...You are enablering her as much as Dina in your riding end to save the day.....and one last thing Keep your Damn Mouth Shut about what you are doing......

I want a job at TMZ. Come on millions of people see this and they could not use spell check or re-read the article to see that they used the wrong pronoun. I copied this word from word.
"Michael Lohan will go to court in an attempt to get a conservatorship for her 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."
He is a she in the first statement and a him in the second. No wonder i dont keep up with TMZ....
