    wow he is such a douche.



  2. 2

    WHile i agree hes a scumbag how can you MARIO?FUG SIster judge him when you are just as bad?



  3. 3

    Why is this guy so despicable? I don't really follow the 'Lohan Situation' as adamant as others. He seems like he cares and wants his daughter to get help. Am I missing something?

    Regardless ““““““ He's still her Dad and has a right to “ speak his mind.
    Lindsays “ a mess “ probably thanks to him and Dina and “`& their problems!! Good luck to ALL of them“` cause “` THEY ALL “ are going to need it!!

    Why is he referring to Lindsay like shes already dead…. someone get a restraining order… and how dare a CBS analyst/ lawyer take this case. Michale is so stupid, this analyst is just using him to get updates. .. Ya know… on airplanes they recommend that parents in the event of an emergency place their air mask on first bc if they pass out then they cant help their kids. this is the same for ML, get help for yourself before you save your daughter!



  6. 6

    on top of it all, CBS knows that he is a nucience to her, why are they enableing him to harrass her?

    Regardless, he is making good points and at least he's doing something about her problem unlike her mother.



  8. 8

    I really think this guy is a creep, saiding that at least know something is wrong with her, not like her mom who keeps saying she is fine and she is not doing anything wrong. I don't care for how he is going about it, if he really cared he would have done something quite like Brittany Spear's father.



  9. 9

    What's wrong with you?!?!?! What has her MORONIC mother done for her, or the others around her for that matter? They vilified Britney's dad too but she's doing better today thanks to him. Tell me, what is so bad about her father insisting she gets help? No, you're right, he should enable her and go to clubs with her just like that sorry excuse she has for a mother does. Yep, THAT'S the answer! Sometimes I think you have a screw loose somewhere. Right now, I think anything is better than the status quo where Lindsay Lohan is concerned.



  10. 10

    I believe we should just wait and see what happens. Nobody else has stepped forward to help Lindsay. I believe people can change. I am going to wait and see what happens and then judge. Lindsay is a chronic liar, a drug addict and an alcoholic. She was a MAJOR MESS in court yesterday. She is also in serious denial, and needs serious help. Michael with the help of his attorney may just be the ones to help. Yes, he's screwed up un the past, but at least he is making an effort now, which more than anyone else is doing.



  11. 11

    I can agree with the father, he cleaned up his act and now he's made out to be the bad guy. If he's not out for the money, then use a trustee to handle lilo's finances. You do that, you'll see who really sticks around to help lilo.

    Lilo has her whole life ahead of her, she needs to part herself from the Hollywood crap. Move away, FAR AWAY. Clean her lifestyle up and come back strong and in control, stay away from the negativity and most of all…distance yourself from your mother, who's the enabler and not out for your best interest.



  12. 12

    Watev I's think her momz da worst!



  13. 13

    um, why do people even interview him? he DONATED SPERM 23 YEARS AGO! she has nothing to do with him lol
    And btw isnt he saying the same things as you? does that make YOU terrible too?
    He does actually make some sense though, he may be a famewhore but i think he does care.
    btw i just saw that pathetic claim that you "helped launch" Amy Winehous's career on t w i t t e r lol you are so dellusional…

    p.s follow me on t w i t t e r my names FUTURESTARdelux thanks :) x

    LOL Perez as if you care about anything being sacred,you probably don't even know the meaning of the word I'm surprised you even knew how to spell it

    Micheal keeps trying to think of all these solutions ,but when all is said and done,you can lead a horse to water but you can't force it drink.



  15. 15

    She needs both jail and rehab. She broke laws and she should have to face the punishment like everyone else. She also has to deal with whatever is causing her to use.



  16. 16

    Yeah what IS wrong with you Perez?? You need to get on the same page WITH YOURSELF. You want help for Lindsay and yet despise her father giving some serious rational information to help the situation on television. Not to mention, the anchor seemed to totally agree with him because he seemed caring and rational. U can't keep hanging him for past mistakes. It's dina that is the problem, she's allowing status quo to continue unless she's finally seeing the light with Michael. If you don't want him to try to get help this way and he's already tried one on one with her, then what do you expect of her father? He's doing a good job in my book.



  17. 17

    I am on Lindsay's father's side. He obviously cares a lot about her. He is trying to save her life, no one else is trying to.



  18. 18

    I agree that he is the only one trying to help her, unlike the rest of her family!! So he may be a douche bag so they call him but at least he has her best interests at heart. And about the money, SHE HAS TO BE BROKE OR CLOSE TO IT. She has no money for her family to keep bilking from her. I also agree with him and Lisa Bloom on the test for prescription drugs because if her addiction is legal meds, then she will never get well.



  19. 19

    YEAH HE IS A TOTAL DOUCHE! BUT I'D LET HIM STICK HIS DIRTY LITTLE JERSY DICK UP IN ME!



  20. 20

    Oh STFU Perez…like you're any better.



  21. 21

    This guy has done more harm to this girls life than anyone has. He's addicted to media attention. Sickening.



  22. 22

    Yeah, the guy is definitly a douche, but I see nothing wrong with this interview. All he wants is for her to return to rehab.



  23. 23

    SHUT UP MICHAEL



  24. 24

    Time to give this guy a break. I think he truly has her best interests at heart. This would kill me to see either of my kids doing to themselves what she is doing to herself. He is her dad and believe he loves this spoiled brat of a kid.

    She looks so puffy and strung out in the courtroom video



  27. 27

    he's her father he has a right to yap about her. What's you excuse cum bucket?

    Oh that's right you need content so you can scam advertisers out of their money.



  28. 28

    Re: DickPound – if u would've followed closely with michael lohan and lindsay lohan you would know that he is a total douche. i didn't see it at first but he's a terrible father, he only cares about the money and fame (just like lindsay's mother), he only APPEARS to be concerned. trust me on this. i've been a lindsay fan for a good while now

    i definitely agree that prescription drugs should be tested as well in the random drug testing. if it's not, she can find ways around it. DUH



  29. 29

    *smdh*



  30. 30

    So what exactly did he say that was so despicable? He sounds like a father who wants his daughter to get help. She obviously needs it. How is he hurting her?



  31. 31

    He may be "terrible" but CBS is even more terrible for letting Papa Trainwreck come on its morning show. Until these news outlets/gossip sites, etc stop asking for his opinion, he will NEVER shut up and go away. What kind of valid things could he have to say anyway? "To discuss the legal amtters of his ESTRANGED daughter"?? Umm, if they're "estranged" that tells me he is talking out of his a** for publicity's sake and not to help his daughter. LOSER. Perez, stop fanning the Papa Trainwreck flames. Who gives a toss what he has to say?



  32. 32

    i honestly don't see anything wrong what he did or said - at least he's doing something!!



  33. 33

    I don't know his motivation but I will assume that he's doing this public outcry for Lindsay's well being and not a publicity stunt. However, I did find it uncalled for for him to mention Brittany Murphy and her husband, Heath Ledger (RIP) as my understanding is that these individuals passed away due to complications whether with their heart, anemia or pneumonia. Yes, there were medications found in their system to treat their ailment(s) but anyone ever have pneumonia? I mean a serious case? You feel like crap so much so that you take the meds in hopes to feel better. I didn't find it necessary to drag these particular people into the mix. Anna Nicole? Okay, that I'd get. She was always drugged up it seemed IMHO.

    Google Zeitgeist



  35. 35

    UGH…..I have been in recovery for 2 years, completely sober. And Mr. Lohan is correct- his attitude towards what she needs, and why she hates him makes perfect sense. NO ONE who is IN and ACTIVE in addiction wants someone telling them they are in trouble. I'm sorry, but recovery is full of people like Mr. Lohan, who have gone to prison, are convicted felons, done stupid things, and they are the ones who are bringing hope to the people who are still active. I don't really see anything wrong with what he is saying…hopefully it is heartfelt, but either way he is right. She is sick, prescription drugs are bad, she WILL NEVER be herself on them, and she will die if she keeps on. Hopefully they assessed her dependence because detoxing on one's own is VERY DANGEROUS! I guess its hard to understand what he is saying unless you've been in the addiction or watched it up close. I think he is perfectly in line.



  36. 36

    He actually sounds pretty sincere. She is in a horrible place right now and obviously her mother is not taking the direction needed for her survival. Someone needs to bang her head against a wall. What a selfish dumb bitch.



  37. 37

    would the news have him on the show if theyve seen the party pictures of him with women half his age??



  38. 38

    she needs someone who is not in CRAZY DENIAL and DELUSIONS- who gives a shit if she hates her dad? A lot of the people i know who are sober now, got CUT OFF by there families. There parents did things to piss them off, and they are so grateful for that today. You can't always be the good guy and HELP- you have to be firm and solid in what is acceptable and what is not. I have a friend whos mom put her in jail, because she kept breaking in and stealing her shit for money to buy drugs- and now she is clean!



  39. 39

    I cant believe I am saying this but…..he actually seems somewhat sincere….! I think he really does want whats best for Lindsay, even though sometimes he doesnt go about it in the best way. I think he is making more of an attempt to get her help/sober then Dina!!!



  40. 40

    People act like he's a friend! He's not! He is her dad!! It shows that he cares instead of being an enabler like the orange Oprah. He is doing what he think is right to save his mess of a daughter, which everyone can see that she has a problem. The only people who dont believe that she has a problem is Lindsay herself and Dina. I would question Dina as an enabler…maybe she is enabling for money. Either way I hope she gets help! Poor girl.



  41. 41

    SHe is clearly so screwed up, you don't have to be a family member to see it. Its pretty obvious at a distance, even in pictures. But its going to be up to her, and it seems like she wants nothing to do with sobriety. All u can do is pray



  42. 42

    I won't even justify this by watching the above clip…he is a douche ag that is trying to profit of his daughter's misfortune…The public forum is NOT the place to air out your family buisness! No wonder the girl turns to drugs with a mother and father like hers!!



  43. 43

    Drug addicts and alcoholics are so selfish - in the throes of their disease they care about no one else but themselves. I hope the court forces her into treatment.

    Also, no one else has commented that at Lindsay's young age she appears to already be receiving juverderm or botox (she's sort of starting to resemble Heidi at this point.)

    Actresses!! - what you put into your body shows, it ages you severely.



  44. 44

    He may be bat shit crazy and rubbish at parenting but he makes some valid points perez when he talks about what needs to be done to help her addiction problems



  45. 45

    I don't get why everyone hates this guy. I agreed with pretty much everything he said.

  46. Hun says – reply to this


    46

    I also think Michael Lohan is a douche for many reasons …. BUT - I am totally backing him on this interview. Lindsay may need help, and if so, her dad is stepping up, WHICH I totally admire about him. Good job Dad.



  47. 47

    At least he is saying yes she has a problem! More then can be said for money grubbing "mommy". She still keeps up the charade that shes fine just being a normal child partying like they all do. Yeah except normal 23 yr old WOMEN dont look 40!



  48. 48

    What a douchebag. Between him & her fucking disgusting junkie of a mother, poor girl had no chance!



  49. 49

    Where's your father pumkinhead?



  50. 50

    Yeah im sure he hasnt been the best father, but maybe lindsay is still mad at her dad from her past. I never thought he spat out bullshit, he's just brutally honest. And i really dont think hes a bad guy, and lindsay and her mother know it too. Estranged family.



  51. 51

    Re: Beaux10 – Right on! In recovery for 4 years now & you're right. The people that know best surprisingly are the ones that have been to jail & made huge mistakes. I've personally seen people on probation & taken off of meds (painkillers, barbituites) unless they have SERIOUS medical issues; which I doubt she has at 23 or 24….



  52. 52

    To me, he's the lesser of 2 evils. Look at her! She's clearly fucked up on drugs. She clearly lies to everyone including herself. She's full on denial and so is her mom. Her mom is an enabler. she's the one that has used her daughter and lived vicariously through her.



  53. 53

    Yeah the guy is clearly a douche, BUT HE'S MAKING GOOD POINTS HERE. If Lindsay is a painkiller addict, the drug tests won't detect that and she'll continue to suffer. I don't see what he said that is so sacred. His daughter will not live to see 25 much less 30 unless something is done. And her mother is clearly an enabler, which is why Lindsay is always singing her praises.



  54. 54

    Firstly, the term `douche' is the most over-used disgusting term of abuse in the English-speaking world and anybody using it should be instantly slapped hard across the face. Having said that, ML is being rational. True, he does have a vested interest in keeping his daughter alive and steering her to a happy and productive life. After all, HE IS HER FATHER! That gives him the right and the OBLIGATION to do the right thing and try to save his daughter's life. Whatever else he has done in his life before is irrelevant. Right now, he is trying to save his daughter's life, not win friends like Perez. All of those quick to judge, should just remember one thing, you may not like the messenger, but the message is sound. Get this silly girl to rehab - not to a crematorium. Everybody can see that on her current trajectory, that is her final destination. Perez, you are an irresponsible idiot. Instead of glorying over people's demise, how about you start campaigning to get her into a facility where she can turn her life around. You really do deserve a sound thrashing.



  55. 55

    thank goodness she has a father who cares! lord knows her mom doesn't give a crap. Prayers her father will somehow be the key to getting her the help she needs and more prayers she will see the light.

    you know it used to be her lawyers woudl say, "she's 21, she's in the age of a partying adolescent." now it's she's 23, of course she's going to party. 10 years from now what will be the excuse? i mean really. it's time to grow up!



  56. 56

    Actually, I did not think that the father was so bad - what he said did make sense.
    And it is certainly no worse than what that idiot Dina Lohan has been Tweeting.
    That lawyer, however, is truly awful - really low class.



  57. 57

    I don't know the story between these two, but what he says is reasonable. Whether his intentions are for ill, I know not.



  58. 58

    honestly the girl needs to be scared straight and GO TO JAIL just like any other tom,dick and harry,it makes me sick how they coddle these celebs.as the saying goes money talks and bulls$%t walks.if it were you or me we'd be in jail and that would be that



  59. 59

    STOP POSTING MICHAEL LOHAN'S CRAP!!!!! NO ONE CARES, AND IF YOU STOP AND EVERYONE STOPS HE MIGHT STOP! Second of all no one cares about Lyndsy Lohan, shes either going to die or get cleaned up. And I think we're all "hoping" she cleans up. Because she could have a future.But inabling this asshole only makes it worse. F**K I need a drink after his crap. lol



  60. 60

    This guy is a fucking ass. Tens of thousands of parents would like their kids to live their lives differently, maybe not take drugs, drink, or hang with better friends. Why does he think that taking to the airwaves with Gloria Alred's daughter will help? (And wtf is a newwoman doing in this role?) I just don't think that interventions work on national TV, nor do I really care to his appeal on morning TV. The best part was when he said, "when I was in jail…" Priceless.



  61. 61

    There's no doctor in the discussion and that may be by design. A doctor has a right to keep Lindsay's physical/mental condition confidential. The public is so superficial as well as the press and always talks about drug/alcohol usage in some sort of vacuum. Lindsay may very well be prescribed mood-stabilizing drugs for depression, bi-polar or other condition like borderline personality disorder and ADD that Michael may know nothing about. She is prescribed adderall and trazadone that we know of but, again, people should QUIT thinking they know everything about LIndsay. They absolutely don't.



  62. 62

    Pig Face…famewhore enabler 24/7. Enabler and hypocrite!



  63. 63

    I don't know what to believe anymore, he makes sense but at the same time why does he have to go on TV? He's pushed her away by spilling all the dirty laundry, I wouldn't trust him either. He may ave good intentions but has gone about it the wrong way.



  64. 64

    WOOOOOOOW. Bringing up Heath Ledger way pretty low of him, I'm just saying. Heath Ledger didn't TRY to kill himself, and he wasn't abusing those drugs to get high. He was just an insomniac…it's an entirely different situation than with Lindsay Lohan.



  65. 65

    Ummm…if she was my kid, I would do the same thing. Not to mention that she is such a bad example for her kid sister….He is doing what should have been done a long time a go, not enabling her like her mom and her attorney are…. Kudos to him…

    Paid morning interviews are such a b*tch, you have to get up soooo early to get that paycheque.
