The sad Lindsay Lohan story just keeps getting sadder: according to her Twitter feed, Father of the Year Michael Lohan stormed Lindsay’s Los Angeles apartment with sheriffs this morning trying to either stage an intervention or “rescue” her 16-year-old sister, Ali Lohan. Resourcefully, Lindsay chronicled the whole drama live as it was happening:
“my lawyer isn’t answering I NEED A RESTRAINING ORDER! MY SISTER AND FRIEND TOO!!!!! HE’S NUTS!!!” my BUILDING didn’t STOP him, isn’t it supposed to be safe? THAT’S WHY I MOVED HERE! it coulda been FAKE cops! dressed up… let’s not forget, that my father KIDNAPPED me from a COURT ROOM when i was 4 years old and is CRAZY.”
Oof.And since no one in the Lohan family is known for their discretion, both Dina and Michael Lohan found the time to explain to the tabs what was going on. Dina proclaimed to US Weekly that her ex was “dangerous,” while Michael blabbed on video to TMZ.com and to Hollyscoop.com:
“I went to the police department concerned about Ali’s welfare. I wanted to check on Ali. I want to make sure she’s ok. She’s 16 and she doesn’t belong there! She’s a minor. I just want to make sure she’s ok.”
Michael Lohan also told Hollyscoop that Lindsay took her sister, Ali, to Coachella this weekend and drove home “at 115 miles per hour.” He claimed he is trying to get a conservatorship over Lindsay, like the one Britney Spears’ father Jamie had.
A spokesperson for the L.A. County Sheriff’s office confirmed to US, “We were there. We found no evidence of abuse.”
You know what? Lindsay probably does need help. But maybe it’s time Michael gets a clue that his daughter is not willing to listen to him, given his own history with drug abuse and prison time. Not that Dina Lohan looks like she’ll ever step up to the parenting plate, either, but Michael — and his tabloid writer fiancée, Jon Gosselin cast-off Kate Major! — just gives me the heebie-jeebies. Couching his behavior in “I’m just checking on Ali!” excuses is a sleazy move.
