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.

Milo is the insane one. How can he even think that a conservator would be able to get 3 adult and 1 teenage offspring to show up for family therapy with a "father" they clearly despise?

Lindsay, your better than your parents. You just need to tell your mom no and father that you love them and tell your mother to bud out no more money, how embarrassing. After watching your mom make a public fool out of her self on the Dr. Phil show. and did I see the same personality traits in the both of you share, denial. They certainly are not helping with your career. When it comes to your life and there opinions I would go to court and get a gag order they are not to talk about you publicly. It's not like the media is putting this garbage out it's your parents. And shame on them. Girl you need some long term threapy from a good Psychologist who will work with you to build your charactor back to the person you were before all of this. You have suffered greatly through the developement years and running away will only perpetuate your behavior unless you do something about it......Don't be shocked if Liz and Dick show bottoms out. You also have to be accountable for your actions something of which you were not taught which is a part of integrity. You also seem to do well when Hollywood punishes you and Hollywood doesn't care and does not give to many chances. You have a lot on your plate and time to clean the slate inside and out. Sensationalism how's it working? Take that away what do you have. Me, Myself n I.

The difference between Lilo and Brit is that Brit had love and respect for hr parents and Lilo has none of either for any of her parents. Let's see how this plays out. Don't think it will have the same results.

More fake crap from the Lohan Spin Machine. (1) Lindsay's Team. Z-List Minor Celebs Don't have "teams". They have hangers-on who are the lowest slugs in town. (2) Brittney needed a conservatorship. She had bona fide mental health issues, had a major fortune to protect, had children and appeared unable to look after herself. (3) Lindsay is just a self indulgent, self important rapidly aging actress who thinks she is a star rather than a bad joke. Doubtful, that a judge would grant a conservatorship in her case.

Michael Lohan needs to find a job at his local Subway (how is he going to support his new baby?) and go away. He is nothing but a slimeball. If he really wanted to help his daughter, he wouldn't be doing it through the media.

If it is true that her lawyer and management team were with Michael Lohan for the intervention, that's a game-changer. I can understand if they don't come forward until the matter goes before a judge, since they're officers of the court and _need_ to handle this thing carefully. Still, it sounds as though Lindsay may now have a Sam Lufti wannabe at her side and be in some danger at this point. I could see a judge, looking at her father, lawyer _and_ managers, granting at least a 5150 for her to start getting the whole thing sorted out. Michael's lack of interest in taking on the conservatorship is telling me that it's not just about money anymore.

Drama drama. There never seems to be a day of the week, or a week of the year without some Lohan related melodrama.
It's all very commendable that Michael Lohan has decided that his daughter needs to submit to a conservatorship so that she can be forced back into rehab. There are, however, going to be problems with this one. Namely, by law you would have to prove that Lindsay is a danger to herself and others. Michale Lohan could argue that she was drunk at the wheel when she had her car accident earlier this year. PROBLEM: if he does argue this, Lindsay is likely to have her probation revoked as another DUI would constitute a criminal act. Where's his evidence of DUI? If the police couldn't get her on that one, I doubt he can. Unless she has made suicide attempts (to which the press is not privy - which as if she farts news editors all over have published it before she actually does - seems unlikely). Or he has actual evidence of behaviour which is either criminal or self destructive, or harmful to others, or unless she has a DIAGNOSED medical condition affecting her mental health, this is posturing. I have no doubt that he wants to help his daughter but, and as a former lawyer he really should know better, unless you have EVIDENCE, you have nothing.
There is sadly no law against being a 26 year old irresponsible brat who has too much money, no structure in their life other than boozing with mates, doing a bit of shopping, and when that's a bore going off and doing some coke or clubbing it until 5 am. It's pretty obvious that Lindsay Lohan is still partying. You don't stay up all night on cocacola...... know what I mean. But it's her life. If she wants to piss it up the wall, it's hers to do that. It's a bit sad if she does, but she's no longer the "cutesy" teenage child actress she once was. Fame and dysfunction have taken that and fvcked her really hard in the ars_e. People have to stop being sentimental about her and just look at her as she is now. And it's not pretty. And unless she sorts her head out, she's never going to see 40. 30 might be a challenge, who knows? Do I feel sorry for her, yes I do. But she's an adult and has to take responsibility for herself and her actions. If she can't then she should be doing something a lot less high profile where nobody is going to look at her and judge.
And she should do well to remember this: once one's looks (whatever they were) have faded, all you have left is the mind which you were born with and the personality which you have developed along the way.
If the only thing you ever had going for you was looks then God help you!

Can she have any chance of winning a "defamation" suit. With her character?

This is just more of the same BS. Still nothing is going to change the fact she trashed and burned her career all by herself. Not getting it back. Their blame game is so over played it's getting desperate which makes it more laughable. No one buys it.

can't a person other than her knucklehead father be this woman's conservatore?
doesn't the adult person have to agree with who will be his/her conservatore?
