Lindsay Lohan’s Dad Tries to Stage Intervention for Her
(LOS ANGELES) — Lindsay Lohan didn’t have a quiet weekend, thanks to her father. He went to her home in Beverly Hills, Calif., in an unsuccessful attempt to stage an intervention for the Mean Girls star.
Michael Lohan tells E! News that he was concerned that she might be drinking again, so he and a few other people showed up to the home on Friday afternoon. However, Michael says, a man who described himself as Lindsay’s boyfriend refused them entry. Police subsequently responded to a call regarding trespassers.
TMZ.com reports Michael had consulted with Lindsay’s manager and lawyers, who signed off on the intervention. Michael reportedly told them in an email last month that he heard his daughter was “drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day,” and suggested that she may have been taking Adderall.
Lindsay denied part of Michael’s account on Twitter, writing, “I don’t have a boyfriend. I have Chanel, Hermes and diamonds. X.”
Her mother, Dina Lohan, who has an acrimonious relationship with Michael, tells E! News, “This sole act by my ex was not an intervention, nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by any member of Lindsay’s family or her professional team of handlers. It’s all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again.”
According to TMZ, Lindsay hopes to obtain an order of protection against Michael, with whom she was already upset for recording a conversation she had with him regarding a well-publicized argument she recently had with her mom.
Michael believed that Lindsay’s alleged relapse may have caused her to miss post-production work on her film The Canyons.
The film’s screenwriter, Bret Easton Ellis, tweeted about her no-show last week, but a producer for the flick tells E! News, “Lindsay has been busy doing press for Liz & Dick. Bret was jesting since he was going to the Chateau [Marmont] that night. Inside joke between us all that has been misconstrued.”
Liz & Dick is the upcoming Lifetime movie starring Lindsay as Elizabeth Taylor.
