The hot news on Sunday still reflects intense interest in Lindsay Lohan’s express train of legal woes. TMZ has focused the attention from the New York City bar brawl and the California driving mishaps toward the root of the problem – drinking. Sunday EW reported that Lohan’s dad; Michael Lohan has made arrangements for Lindsay Lohan to go to the Betty Ford Clinic. Reports that Lindsay consumes two liters of vodka daily are enough of a reason for Lohan to consider her dad’s offer and return to rehab for the sixth time.
“I just want her to go into rehab. I love her and I just want her to get the help she needs.”
TMZ’s report that Lohan consumes up to two liters of vodka daily, have family and friends urging the star to seek help. Lindsay’s dad believes the reports according to quotes in Hindustan Times:
“Do I believe Lindsay the new reports that Lindsay is drinking two litres of vodka a day? I believe she’s drinking to drown her sorrows. When I was at the Chateau Marmont I saw bottles. People tell me what she’s doing,” he wrote.
Lindsay Lohan’s dad Michael has long been pleading with Lindsay to seek help and repeated Lindsay’s assistant’s plea to find help; according to Saturday reports. According to EW, Michael Lohan had paid for this rehab back in 2010.
A few weeks ago Lindsay declared her dad Michael as dead to her, after he recorded a call during the infamous fight between Lohan and her mom. Yes, the women had been drinking up until four in the morning. Someone needs to put these Lohan on curfew.
The Irish Examiner also reported on Michael Lohan, who was defending himself against Lohan’s mom, Dina. Dina is upset that Lindsay’s assault victim, Tiffany Mitchell, lives just moments away from Michael Lohan. Dina has long sought to blame Michael for all of Lindsay’s problems. Michael said this about Dina’s accusations of setting up Lindsay:
“Dina’s comments are delusional and just go to show the lengths she’ll go to divide me from my children and pollute their minds. The public can see right through her.
“It’s a really sad situation when a mother doesn’t join hands with a father to help their daughter instead of making up stories about him.”
At this point the family is a dysfunctional mess, but Michael sounds more reasonable than either Dina or Lindsay. Perhaps no matter what the motive is for his offer, Lindsay should take advantage and enroll for treated at one of the most well-known addiction clinics. Submitting to rehab at the non-profit Ford clinic, might even give Lohan have half a chance to save her life. The arrangements are made LiLo – Betty Ford Center is waiting for a check-in.
