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.

Are there no proof readers at TMZ? Are the proof reading funds going to the Lohan's?

So many things potentially happening here all at once..
1. This could be a genuine attempt to get Lindsay some much-needed assistance.
2. This could be a genuine attempt to get Lindsay set up to avoid jail time should the judge revoke her probation at her upcoming court date.
3. This could be a genuine attempt to get Michael Lohan set up to control Lindsay's finances, if only from a second-in-charge position.

We all knew Lindsay had still been using, ever since her last rehab stint. The constant water bottle filled with vodka situation, the unresponsive in the hotel room incident, the car accident on PCH (where they found aforementioned water bottle full of vodka), the ensuing clusterfvck of run-ins with the law and other shady dealings...
Only those that live in a haze of denial and delusion would argue that she is clean and sober and in full control of her faculties and life at this point in time. It's time for someone to step up and get this woman some real help, and I actually do think a conservatorship would be a good first step in the right direction. I'm just not convinced that Michael Lohan is the guy to do it. Jamie Spears he ain't. Good luck, guy..

'Know what? Go for it, Mike.

I can't believe I'm about to write this, but, between you and Dina, you're the parent who truly give a f*ck about your daugther (wow... I really just wrote that.)

However, good luck getting LiLo off the drugs - if a junkie doesn't think they have any problem, they cannot be rehabilitate.

Wow -
If Lindsay is who I think she is (and she is) -
She has an inner pain that is driving her toward something -
She knows what it is - or she should = I told her years ago -
She is probably just this side of crazy -
So this conservator-ship won't fly -
These are strange times for those who don't understand prophecy -
LINDSAY - do not surround urself w/ppl who are not at ease - but then again i think ur ability to discern evil is compromised -
"Dis-ease" = not mentally (or spiritually) at ease
there is a lot of disease in the world right now -
Eh - told ya all this b4 -
gtg running -
Peace be with you Lindsay -

How is Lohan only 26 yrs old? She seems much older than that, and has been acting up for a long time. Years. I'd have guessed she was at least 32 or more, just from her behaviors. Anybody notice that picture of her and her three siblings at a game or something? The other three are unfortunate in their faces, for some reason. I can't figure which parent to blame that on. Those 3 look like they got the worst of both parents. The little brother's a redhead, too. To be a redhead, both parents have to have redheads in their families. The other sister and brother are so dark and pinched, squinty looking. Lindsay is the most attractive of the four, but pretty is as pretty does, as they say.-

Well, looks like Lindsay will have to go to rehab AGAIN to get her dad off her back then she will come out and be all clean and the public will love her again.
