Michael Lohan

Publicity hungry Lindsay Lohan's father is going to fly to Los Angeles California in a hope to persuade his troubled daughter to check into rehab, because he's terrified she will die without professional help. Licking Lindsay has earned herself a reputation as a Hollywood party girl in over the years thanks to so many wild nights out, arrests for drug possession and driving violations and a stint in rehab. Lindsay hit the gossip columns again earlier this month when she was snapped falling into a cactus bed after a night out in Los Angeles. She was also photographed with a mystery white dust on her designer shoes last week. Michael Lohan, who has publicly spoken about his daughter's alleged prescription drug addiction in the past, is admitting he's seriously worried for his daughters health, and he's appealing for her to seek professional help before it's too late. During a press conference yesterday, he said, "Lindsay's not OK. I think we've seen that, we all know that. It's really hard for me to do this. A lot of my family members know what's going on. "I've tried every way possible to reach out to my daughter, talking, text, we've met. And, in difficult times, she reaches out to me. It happened last week when she fell into the cactus. She said, 'I need security.' I'm her father and I love her. "I think we all see and know what's happening with Lindsay. I get calls from her closest friends and it's worse than you can imagine. My daughter needs to let me help her. I don't want her to be a statistic. My heart goes out to people who have lost their children." Michael Lohan wants to meet with his daughter's legal team because he wants to help Lindsay of disruptive influences in her life. He adds, "Lindsay needs help now and I'm asking everyone out there to help her and if you're an enabler (to Lindsay) get out of there. I want to meet with Lindsay's lawyers and sit down with her privately to work something out, discuss the situation. "If she refuses to do so I guess we will take measures. I hope Lindsay is accommodating. We all know the truth. God knows the truth. I love her and I want her to be healthy. Her life will not be taken from me."

Editors Note: I never saw a more press hungry person in my life. As much as I do not like Lindsay, because of a night out at the topless club Scores, where Lindsay and Kate Moss were so nasty to me, I really think her father has just gone too far. When Michael Lohan was in jail, he called me several times wanting me to get in touch with Lindsay. He even had his mother send me a letter to give to her, which we still have. We never got involved, because we could see what he was. A publicity hungry we-don't-know-what.... It's one thing when your daughter makes headlines by herself, but it's another thing for her father to makes things worse by throwing these press conferences, that bring even more attention to her. One night I was hanging out with Lindsay's mom Dina. I told her the things I knew Michael was doing and she said he's always up to something. Dina is a great mom, I adore her. How she has put up with Michael all these years, is beyond me. It is clear that Lindsay has not wanted anything to do with Michael for many years now. Why can't he just leave her alone. Everyone knows Lindsay has made huge mistakes, but she has to learn all by herself. When I was younger, I did just as many stupid things as Lindsay has. As I grew older, I learned. Lindsay has to do the same. I think it's time for Dina Lohan and Lindsay to sit down and talk about what to do about Michael. This guy is press hungry. He will not stop. He has hurt Lindsay's career, or whatevers left, more than she has done herself. Leave Lindsay alone Michael. Get a life of your own!
