Lindsay Lohan
will not emerge from rehab a changed woman ... so says her own father.

Michael Lohan just called in to "TMZ Live" to discuss Lindsay's upcoming court-ordered stint in a fancy rehab center in The Hamptons -- and while he's hoping for the best ... it's clear he's not very confident it's gonna work.

In fact, Michael also says Lindsay's decision to hit the Coachella music festival right before she begins treatment is "one of the worst ideas she ever had."

Gotta respect the honesty ...

Lohan is pushing 27 and is only getting worse. She's done whatever she's wanted to for over 10 years. Mommy and Daddy not great but can't blame them forever.


Lohan has done all this to herself. She knows it. She just won't own up to it. Always somebody elses fault. Never hers.

Well I guess a man who failed at life can speak from experience.

Sleazeball though he is, Michael really has been making proper assessments on this issue. He's right on the mark here- though it would be nice if she used rehab as the first step toward a sober and happier life, she isn't ready for that. This rehab is just a cushier jail for her. She'll be detoxing bigtime and it will be a more comfortable and safer environment for that. She'll also be fed properly for 3 months. So she'll come out better temporarily but will most likely go right back to her self-destructive ways. But the court is not obligated to "fix" her but rather just needs to discourage her from endangering others and stealing and lying to police. The sentences she's received are all aimed at that goal, not "fixing" her. Only Lindsay can fix Lindsay.

I agree with him about Coachella. She should have just started rehab as soon as possible. I hope she isn't planning to go out with a bang, overdosing while there. She's pretty tough, so I've thought she was relatively suicide-proof despite her fixation on Marilyn Monroe. But maybe things are changing too fast for her. Her body really looks as though it's giving out. Her face is shot- she should be gorgeous at her age without makeup. She's balding. She's getting old enough that these things may not be very reversible, although I'd like to see if 90 days away from booze and drugs (including Adderall) plus good nutrition could still reverse a lot of it. If I were Michael- I'd hire someone to stick with Lindsay like glue throughout Coachella and beyond, until she's safely deposited alive at the rehab.

she will be treated like the plague at coachella. no VIP tents for her, when everyone knows if she is around, there will be police attention placed on their tents. look at vikram's shakedown and arrest last week. look at the full pat down of her at the airport today. everyone, and anyone associated, or associating with her is also in the crosshairs. who wants that shyte at their party.

there will be plenty of coachella photos of her, i am sure. i cant expect them to be favourable. such is her life.

When Lohan screws up in rehab she will call daddy to fix it so the doesn't get back to the judge. Then daddy will be a good guy again.


Michael Lohan simply stated what everyone already knows. This is not a news flash.

Lohan actually completing rehab without incident would be a news flash.

Seems to be a pattern. Thank God her absentee Father let us know his thoughts. I'm shocked! I would have never guessed. My God! But then again, the World is out to get her. She's is pushing 30, but just "going thru a phase" as she put it. At what age does this phase go away? Other than the picking out a casket, and looking for a headstone stage.
