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.

Has he lost his mind? That would only make things worse for her, as far as independent conservaters go, I think he's full of it, yeah it's a money grab.

Why does a man like Michael get any credibility here? He's gone to jail and rehab as much as Lindsay has and more recently. He doesn't pay child support. His possible daughter from an affair went on Dr. Phil and said she doesn't want him in her life. His children except Lindsay said they don't want to associate with him and they've been saying this for years privately. He made a total ass of himself of Celebrity Rehab with his extreme drama and quick fused temper, said Kate was a whore and I won't even repeat the other despicable thing he said to her (yes, she's horrible too but that doesn't excuse him). He's an aggressive, nasty creep on twitter with his false religious overtones and attacking anyone at whim. This is all a show, he didn't say Lindsay was in such horrible shape a week ago, he said Dina was. I don't think he's doing what he does for money, it's all for his own selfish agenda and control of the only kid he has that is willing to have him in her life sometimes and to wrestle that control away of her from his ex. It's a power play that he continues to lose.

Not going to happen. She has the right to be stupid and blow her money. I hope the rest of the kids are learning from all this crap going on.

I think he is trying to shed light on a serious problem in his family. He's no saint but i really don't want to watch her get eatin alive by drugs. Her mother is a lost cause. Linsay could be powerless against her mother's influence over her. Linsay has real talent. I don't want to watch another lost soul die.

Did he copy and paste this plan from TMZ comments? Sadly, I can't see this working, even if he goes through with it.

What bothers me is that it seems that Michael and Dina are using Lindsey to get back at each other. I have serious issues with a father that would take a private conversation between himself and his daughter and hand it over to the media. Even if his intentions are good, how can she trust him? Plus the court is not going to appoint a guardian for someone of sound mind even if they use drugs and make bad decesions, I've been there done that. Seems to me if he stayed out of the media and handle the issues in private he could rebuild trust with his daughter. And for god sakes stop using this girl to beat each other over the head with? Neither one of you where model parents and if you all had spent more time parenting then pimping Lindsey out she'd be better off. She's your child, not a bank, a weapon, or media story.
