Lindsay Lohan on Twitter complained about her dad, Michael Lohan. According to Lindsay, and as reported at TMZ, Michael Lohan, accompanied by members of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, showed up at Lindsay’s doorstep to check on Ali Lohan, Lindsay’s 16-year-old sister who is staying with Lindsay. Says Lindsay Lohan on Twitter, “I’m not angry, I am wondering what the world is coming to when my father can hire cops and walk into my apt w/out notice.”
Lindsay Lohan complained on Twitter, but should Michael Lohan be concerned for the welfare of Ali?
According to TMZ, Michael Lohan requested police visit Lindsay’s apartment to do a “welfare check” on Ali Lohan. Ali Lohan was allowed to remain at the apartment and police left.
But tweets Lindsay Lohan, “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!” She also tweeted, “My lawyer isn’t answering I NEED A RESTRAINING ORDER! MY SISTER AND FRIEND TOO!!!!! HE’S NUTS!!!”
It appears Dina Lohan agrees. Says Dina, “I was told by my attorneys not to speak because it is very serious and my ex could be in big trouble. He’s dangerous…If he can’t get to them he is going to try to hurt them — it’s not good.”
If Lindsay Lohan is right and Dina Lohan is right, why is Lindsay Lohan such a mess?
Lindsay Lohan’s troubles with drugs and alcohol, of very recent, have become public knowledge. Now Michael Lohan is going to the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services on the advice of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. Ali Lohan accompanied Lindsay Lohan to the Coachella Festival and then allegedly was in Lindsay’s car as it sped down the street at over 100 mph. Lindsay may be an adult, but 16-year-old Ali is not. Does Michael have a right to be concerned about his teenager?
Michael Lohan is no angel. He’s had problems with substance abuse, and he’s been in jail. Lindsay Lohan on Twitter writes, “When will it ever end… it’s been going on my whole life with him-hasn’t he caused enough pain?” It’s clear that the relationship with her father is not a good one.
When a child abuses drugs or alcohol, no one forces them to do it, but the history of the parents should not be ignored. Lindsay’s family life is clearly dysfunctional, and based on the reports about Lindsay, she is slowly spiraling out of control. Lindsay thanks her mother for her sanity, “Thank g-d for my mommy… w/out her, i wouldn’t even know myself.” But some may ask, “What’s there to thank?”
Is Lindsay’s mother helping her daughter to better her life or simply enabling a person who is abusing drugs and alcohol? The problems with Lindsay Lohan became largely public after she made Mean Girls, released in 2004. Taking the mother, the father, the sister and everyone but Lindsay out of the picture, you have Lindsay Lohan. The only person who can truly help Lindsay Lohan is Lindsay Lohan. Blaming the father or anyone else may feel good, but it doesn’t address the ultimate problem of a 23-year-old actress who could save her reputation, and more importantly, her life, if she really wants to.
