Michael Lohan’s failed attempt at staging an intervention this weekend for daughter Lindsay — with whom he has had a tumultuous relationship at best — was widely reported as supported by all of Lohan’s flak including lawyers for the troubled actress.
But if Michael Lohan leading an intervention seems like an odd circumstance to you, you are not alone. Lindsay Lohan’s siblings have all broken their silence on the Michael Lohan intervention late last week and seem to suggest that the wannabe star is in it for publicity rather than getting daughter Lindsay the help he believes she needs as she struggles to regain control of her career.
Siblings Ali Lohan, Michael Lohan, Jr., and Dakota Lohan have all spoken out after news of their dad’s attempt to save Lindsay from herself faltered, and the three have implored their father to stay out. Ali, a model, released a statement Sunday after initially not commenting, and this is what she had to say about her father’s attempts to rescue Lindsay:
“Take this as your other daughter’s plea to an absent father … I have always tried to stay out of the press because it hurts me to see how you malign my mother. But in this instance, I am breaking my silence.”
“Please stop waging your own personal war against my family. We don’t need you to intervene because we can take care of ourselves without you, as we have been all these years.”
Twenty-four-year-old Michael Lohan, Jr., had much the same to say, commenting:
“I think it’s unfortunate that the public had to be unwittingly invited into the lives of my family members due to my father’s lies … That being said, I think everyone can understand and see why my sisters, brother, mother and I do not associate with him anymore.”
Dakota Lohan, 16, had this to say about the intervention and her relationship with her dad:
“I have no good memories of my so called father. He has never been part of my life, and needs to leave my family alone!”
Do you think Michael Lohan had Lindsay’s best interests at heart, or was he just trying to ride her coattails to more publicity?
