Took him long enough!
Within hours of the news breaking that Lindsay Lohan has failed multiple drug tests, her absentee father, Michael Lohan is already blabbing to the media.
And, in his own delusional way, he claims Lindsay keeps acting out because he is not in her life!
In a long-winded rant, Michael says:
“Her manager and her friends failed, they failed beyond belief [and] I will do all that I have to call them out. I’m sorry, I’m really sorry. I wish she would just listen to me and just let me into your life. I’m telling you if you had me in your life this never would happen.
If she had her father in her life she wouldn’t have this inner turmoil. She wants to numb the pain.
You want people around you that are going to say no. When there’s people around you that just want to have fun, are those the people you want in your life? I’ve said it . Everything that is hidden comes to light…Even with Dina you can’t lie and get away with it. You can’t hide from it. We all care about Lindsay.
The only thing I’ve seen is the Vanity Fair article before Lindsay went to jail and they got her in a very vulnerable state and tried to drag things out of her… She’s at a point when she wants her mom and her dad there.
She needs her mother, her father, her sisters, her brother. She needs harmony. If she doesn’t have that pain she won’t have any need for drinking and drugs in her life.
When Lindsay was at the height of her career, her mother and I were together…and you never saw us in the press because she had her parents..
You don’t want to have your mom and dad in a a boxing ring…They want to have their mom and dad in harmony saying we’re here for you.
Surprisingly, though, Michael says he doesn't think Lindsay should go to jail, despite her probation judge saying she'd face 30 days in prison if she failed a drug test.
Says her father, “I don’t think my daughter should go to jail. I think in a fair system they should put her in rehab and put her into a long-term rehab system. She needs inpatient rehab and her mother and father [to] finally sit down to resolve their differences and put a stop to this nonsense…she needs to get therapy and has to get her mom and dad in the right place and we have to be there for her.”
It's gonna take a lot more than Michael Lohan and Orange Oprah for Lindsay to get better!
