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.

He has to have do***ented evidence to be able to prove she is unfit to handle her own affairs and he is not around her enough to have evidence. I beleve him but think he will not be able to prove it.

My fervent wish is that if this is true and if it does get as far as a legal ruling that the judge will completely agree with Michael and issue a conservatorship that has NOT A DAMN THING TO DO WITH ANY MEMBER OF THAT WACKED OUT FAMILY. That sure would make my day. I'd love to see what Dina and Michael would do when the Bank of Lindsay closes its doors.

Her father saying he does not want to be conservator is just a bunch of bullchit posing for the media. After all he could never be. He is a convicted felon and thus he would never be appointed, he's excluded by law I believed. As far as her attorney being in on this, there is no way she could discuss with Lindsay's father as there is attorney client privileged. Also I'm sure the last person they would be on board this chit train with is Michael Lohan of all people.

Lindsay has the "you don't tell me what to do" attitude. She will never give in to a conservatorship where she is controlled by someone. She had better get herself some new representation quick because it seems like all the people she has now have turned on her…..with good reason of course.

First off, Lindsay can not take care of herself. She always needs someone to bail her out of the sh!t she gets herself into. She can't handle her money and has to USE random men to pay her way since she piddles away what little she makes on drugs, alcohol and bad decisions. She knows what will happen if she drives but doesn't care. She blames others for her careless actions and acts like everyone is out to get her! Sounds a little schizo to me. If that doesn't warrent a conservatorship I don't know what will.

Well, now we see where this was going, with the leaking of the taped phone call and the attempt at intervention. It's just Michael Lohan making a money grab. The court should give Brittney Spears dad a conservatorship over Lindsey, not Michael Lohan.

It will never happen--she needs a lot of help, but this won't happen. I agree about Dina--she is the stumbling block to Lindsay getting help. That's because Dina is just like her.

This family is the definition of insanity - "doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results"

God help them all.

I do find it interesting that Shawn hasn't issued a statement refuting Michael's claim...
