Lindsay Lohan may be trying to get an order of protection taken out against her father, Michael, but with her management and legal team on his side and one failed intervention behind them, the group is looking for another way to get the troubled starlet the help she so desperately needs…and they may be taking a page out of the Jamie Spears playbook!
Lohan plans to meet with lawyers this week to propose a conservatorship over LiLo, who's substance abuse problems have escalated in recent months due to her friendships with various enablers - including mother Dina!
And before you all start screaming that he's only attempting to gain control of her finances, Michael has no plans to request the role of her conservator, and instead wants the judge to decide whom to appoint…so long as it's not her mother!
With this in place, he hopes to get Lindsay into rehab without the influence of her peers, who insured that "she went in dirty and didn't come out clean" during her last stints. He also hopes that this move would finally convince Dina to agree to family therapy, as her refusal to do so in the past has hindered her daughter's recovery.
Wow. Lots to process here, isn't there?
While Michael's past behavior has certainly made us weary of jumping aboard the bandwagon, we have to say that he DOES carry a significant amount of clout here, due to the involvement of her handlers and his assurance that he does NOT want to be appointed her conservator!
We just hope that if they all can somehow convince a judge that this is the best option for the actress' health and well-being, he or she assigns someone the job who can successfully get her the help that she clearly needs…and away from BOTH her parents!
At least until she's well enough to really grasp how their behavior has taken a toll on her and how to handle them better in the future!
What do U think? Team Michael or Team Lindsay??
