Lindsay Blames Her Dad For Drug Addiction

lindsay lohan blames dad for drug addiction

Since Lindsay Lohan has been in Betty Ford, she has been pondering what got her where she is today - and she's concluded that it's all because of her daddy, Michael.

She has been talking to therapists about what has led her to face drug and alcohol addiction and figured that her dysfunctional family has taken its toll.

Lindsay talked about witnessing Michael's abuse firsthand and that she had to step in to protect her mother from him. She also discussed what it was like to live with a father who was always in and out of jail. Not to mention, moving to Los Angeles with almost no parental supervision.

LiLo also admitted that the tabloid scrutiny of her life has wore her down.

Let's hope the staged photos come to an end. Take a break, honey. You need it!

    THANK GOD DINA HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. LINDS BABY I HAVE THREE WORDS FOR YOU: DE NI AL

    If this is what she's been talking to her therapist about…then why is it public?

    You should be ashamed of yourself for publishing this information.



  4. 4

    Perez, maybe you should take a fucking break before karma comes a calling like an out of control semi.



  5. 5

    I could have told her years ago that she has some serious daddy issues! Free of charge!



  6. 6

    UMM THERAPISTS ARE BOUND TO AN OATH OF SECRECY!!!! she needs to get a new therapist ASAP…



  7. 7

    Mmm I dont know Its still because she wanted to take them. she cant blame anyone thats taking the resonsbility away from her still.



  8. 8

    Excuses are like assholes, everyone has one. Take some fucking responsibility and get your shit together, blaming daddy isn't going to help with anything



  9. 9

    At least she's talking, thats a good start.

    Re: LetttyB – That's one word ignoramus.
    I'm with Lindsay -although i don't think that the story is true, it would be unethical for anyone to publish the story while she's in rehab- but anyway Michael Lohan is a famous deadbeat father and surely her destructive home life + her early fame would be the reasons for her behaviour. Noone takes drugs just for kicks.

    The reason she hated her Dad and has been doing drugs is because she is uncomfortable with her LESBIANISM. She is gay. Straight girls never have sex with other women other than for a laugh.

    Family of origin issues are behind most addictions. When you're ashamed of who and what you come from, it's pretty hard to love yourself. I'd be strung out too if Michael Lohan was my father. If he truly loves Lindsay he will STFU and give her the space she needs. IMHO she needs to distance herself from Mommy Dearest too.

    Stop blaming others for your problems. Lots of people have gone through the same (if not worse) and lots of people turned out OK. Take responsibility for your life and your actions.



  15. 15

    Re: kozzie13 – People are different and they react differently to the same situation. You don't know if the people you say they are ok are really ok.

    I feel bad for her, having a parent that messes up that often probably normalized the condition of addiction and self-destructive behavior for her because it was what she was raised on. Having two parents, one who repeatedly screws up and takes no responsibility and another who enables that behavior and attempts to justify it left her a hybrid of both. When she drinks, drugs, fucks around she's pretty much saying "Hey, this is who I am, this is all my life has ever been, it's normal, it's fine"…I don't think she's quite realized how abnormal and dysfunctional her upbringing truly has been. Admitting that invalidates her childhood, it invalidates her family and she fears that the most because the lack of stability in her family situation probably has cost her the most.

    i've been through the same stuff and i am on my way to getting my doctorate. instead of using as an excuse to get high i used it as motivation to not become another statistic. don't blame it on daddy, lindsay, he didn't force you to snort/smoke/inject, take some responsibility like an adult.

    Re: ParalyZzzZzer ARE YOU BEING FACETIOUS, TELLING ME THAT DENIAL IS ONE WORD? WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU, MY SPELL-CHECKER? AND YOU CALL ME AN IGNORAMUS?



  19. 19

    … ripped from the pages of the National Enquirer, a fictitious dialogue presented as fact and put out there by none other than Mr Astute himself Perez Hilton. I have serious doubt that Lindsay's records have leaked. I call bullshit.



  20. 20

    Lindsay Lohan frustrates me, why is she still relevant? Why are people still caring about her excuse of a "celebrity?" There is nothing to celebrate about her anymore. She is a waste of space and she has wasted her talents. Any attention that she does deserve is from a psych doctor! A trusted one that does not leak confidential clinical information to the media might help!



  21. 21

    yeah that's nice… what are your sources?



  22. 22

    Re: SDawg – But u love reading it!

    Re: Ari Levine – That's what I was wondering. No wonder she is so screwed up, can't trust anyone.

    It's " Has Worn her down" not wore her down!

    Oh BooFuckingHoo LL… time to grow up and take responsibility for your own actions and quit blaming daddy… yeah, he's a dick, but so what? You're supposedly an adult… try acting like one.



  26. 26

    How would anyone know this information? A person has a right to confidentiality with their therapist….someone could be sued for posting this. Not to mention the fact that it is just plain unethical for someone to post it.



  27. 27

    Ridiculous. To admit that anyone has power over you means you have no power over yourself OR any substances. AA 101 = no one 'buys' your argument that 'I wouldn't have [drank] so much if so-and-so hadn't MADE me'. Not a legit excuse.



  28. 28

    Re: Ari Levine – i was wondering the same thing. the patient / therapist relationship is supposed to be confidential.



  29. 29

    Re: MRBIGDICK – You are WRONG! Your childhood and your family life has a HUGE impact on you. DENIAL is denying this fact. Lindsay is totally correct in seeing a therapist and being totally honest about her family and what may be bothering her. Yes, she is an adult now but in order for her to move forward, she needs to understand why she thinks and feels the way she does. Her father looks like a total jerk and she needs to decide whether he needs to continue to be a part of her life!

    Re: Fabu – Lindsay is still VERY young. I wish my brother had broken down and admitted he needed help when he was that age. He ended up abusing drugs in the military and became a sad man who would not function or go get help. He lived with my mother until she died and then went on a drunken binge and ended up dead. We did everything we could to help him but he was on a 'Highway to Hell' and was determined to go the way he went. She should find a caring therapist who can help her heal herself.

    addiction is no ones fault. Her decisions are her own. I know PLENTY of people that came from HORRIBLE homes growing up and have become these amazing people. yes some of them have used, but i personally know many people most in their early 20's with over 8 year clean and sober. I personally have 2 1/2

    She needs a friend, a sponsor, someone to show her how to live a sober life. Trust me its just as fun as if you were using! But your a functioning member of society!

    Hopefully one day she will wake up and be accountable for her own actions. its not that hard to do….



  32. 32

    Everyone stop bashing on perez for saying something about it! somebody has too! She needs to wake up and take responsibility for her own actions and stop using her past as a crutch



  33. 33

    This therapist is either really shitty of keeping things confidential or someone is talking out of their ass. We all know how she feels about her father, this isn't news. She needs to grow a serious pair of imaginary cojones and stop giving him the satisfaction that he has any kind of impact on her.
