Lindsay Lohan Intervention

Michael Lohan Asked

Dr. Drew for Help

Michael Lohan
recruited rehab mastermind Dr. Drew for his massive Lindsay intervention last week, TMZ has learned -- but Dr. Drew declined, believing he would accidentally sabotage the entire operation.

Michael tells TMZ, he had been planning the Lindsay intervention for months ... and a couple weeks ago, he approached Dr. Drew to spearhead the mission.

But Michael tells us, Dr. Drew declined because he thought Lindsay would freak if she saw that he was involved -- defeating the entire purpose of the intervention.

According to Michael, Dr. Drew believed Lindsay needed someone with a lower profile ... someone less intimidating ... so Drew referred Michael to another intervention specialist.

Michael says he ultimately settled on someone else entirely -- someone with a connection to Lindsay's lawyer Dave Feldman -- but as we first reported, the intervention was a miserable failure ... and the cops were called.

I think people need to boycott Lindsay. People just need to pretend like she no longer exists. No one will hire her and she will eventually run out of money and her parents will no longer be able to get anything from her. She needs to hit bottom before she will ever realize she has a problem.

when will the news of this terribly dysfunctional family ever end?
after her movie in november????
everything about this family is nonsense.
maybe instead of harping on the lohan news you try boycotting any news about them.
lindsay isn't that big of a celebrity that deserves daily sensationalism.
if you stop writing about every move they make things could possibly change.
i think they just do whatever it takes to be in gossip magazines.
if you want different results than do things differently.

help this young woman

You are completely stupid today! We do know that the person with Milo was Jason Squatriglia. He just graduated High School in May. He was a manager of Best Bagels in Town in Holbrook, NY. He is a freshman student at High Point University. He claims to be a commodities broker and financial manager. Interesting that Michael was an unlicensed commodities broker for which he went to jail and prison for. Some people are saying that Milo is again involved in commodities. Could he be using Jason for that? Jason posted several pics of himself and Milo flying to LA and at the studios for the ETonline interview. He also tweeted that he was at Lindsay's house in LA.

If Lindsay wasn't using or drinking after this mess she is using again. If she was using and drinking after this mess she is using and drinking even more. Michael Lohan is a dumb as a mule.

I wish there was a way to block (H)elp... she is a lunatic between her "fans", "friends" and "family". Is it a wonder that Lohan never had a chance in hell of getting out alive?

BTW its people like you (H)elp, Jill, and the others that are eventually going to be the death of her one day. Do I think some of the stories you hear are exaggerated? Of course most news is between the place of fallacy and the truth and what you get in the middle that is presented as our news.

Since the entire clan of you like her family cannot READ plain English; it reads that Dr. Drew did not want to go to the intervention because it would freak the crack monster out; and she'd know right away what was up, granted Daddy deciding to go there was yet another "brilliant" idea that can only come from the Lohan family.

Please stop you enabling arseholes you are making me actually pit her when she is not even deserving of pity at this point.

Michael should call Lana del Rey for the next intervention. She said she started drinking when she was 14 and was sended 2 bording school. is clean over 7 years. For sure Lindsay would hang with emo Del Rey and listenning 2 her ubber depressing songs.
While Lindsay would open up about crack and middle eastern men Del Rey could talk about how she thinks suicide is amaxzing and we are all "Born to Die"anyway

Lindsay is right where she wants to be and Milo should just give it up. This is how she gets jobs and these are the people she gets jobs from. She is happy to be the "celebrity" and the center of attention. The dysfunctional family that she claims fully supports her and even helps her to hold it together enough to keep the cash flowing.

I'm glad Dr. Drew didn't do it. Hell, he's too busy anyhow. And, after MiLo's tour de force in Celebrity Rehab (sadly, yes, I saw some if not all of it), I'd make a condition of being involved that MiLo can't be there.

And can't be named the person in charge of a conservatorship . If it goes that far. LiLo has enough problems without putting one of her idiot parents in a position of legal power over her.
