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.

It's no wonder Lindsay Lohan is so messed up. Maybe her parents are the cause of her problems.

Thumbs up for Milo. I think he is sincere because he is not asking to be the one to oversee her funds. Be kind people. Messed up people can love their children. And actually, this will keep both Milo and Dina out of her life for a while.

really! really?    

Lindsay's and Dina's actions are somewhat understandable as they have nothing better to do. No jobs, no charities, no hobbies, etc. But Michael, don't you have a pregnant wife who needs your attention right now? Literally could not care less about any of these waste-heads. What a joke!

I've actually got to hand it to the Lohans--since none of the networks want them, they've created a whole new genre of entertainment. The "reality" show on TMZ! They get paid and their faces in the media, TMZ makes money from all that advertising, and we idiots are entertained. Everyone's happy!

One thing for certain. Her criminal lawyer is the only person making real money off of LL.

Oh cut it out TMZ. This is so obviously a publicity stunt for that Liz and Dick movie. How much are they paying you?

They all know that if Lindsay cleans up her act that that will be the end of their gravey train. Because they also know that Lindsay won't be hired for her acting abilities and her voice is a total turn off, it's a combination of a manly grating sound and a guttural rasp. They have come to realize that TMZ and all the rags that supply them with what little they have coming in will stop, and their little corner of infamy will be gone for good.

Quit talking about it and just do it. She has been given plenty of time to try and work things out herself and it is apparent she cannot do it by herself. This is just a game to her. I hope this really goes through and she will see this is no longer a game she can just weasel herself out of. Unfortunately, addicts are clever. Unlike Britney Lohan will not be babbling incoherently she is an addict and addicts are extremely sneaky and clever. They have to be, they're addicts! I just hope it works out.

What about court? I think Milo is trying to be the parent he shoulda been 25 yrs ago. Family counseling is a positive energy. Or at least the right direction.

It seems that people are ignoring two key elements (if this story is true)

1) Lohan said he does NOT want to be appointed the conservator.

2) Her ENTIRE management team AND legal team are involved in this. It's not just her father.

I think both Michael and Dina Lohan are revolting and I don't see the conservatorship happening. And, constantly giving updates to tabloids is obviously exploitative. But, this does seem different from his past attempts to capitalize off of her.
