Lindsay Lohan is a 23-year-old girl, though she recently posed with 54-year-old Donatella Versace and managed to look older than the fashion icon. Several years of hard partying, and some claim plastic surgery, have wreaked havoc on her looks, giving her a her puffy face, squinty eyes, gaunt frame, premature wrinkles, and a lost look in her eyes. But it isn’t just drugs that have bent Lindsay out of shape, in fact she’s probably just been self medicating to get over the emotional turmoil her parents put her through.
Lindsay’s father, Michael Lohan, uses the media as a platform to express his worry about his obviously drug-addicted daughter. It’s a thinly disguised ploy to appear the desperate, good father, but he doesn’t consider that people would find it a bit odd that he’s talking to Maury Povich, X17, Radaronline, and basically anyone who will print his words, but never to his daughter. He majoring slipped up on his “Save Lindsay” media tour when he mentioned to X17 that his solution was to take her to “an undisclosed location and get her straight. But I know I’m going to be charged with kidnapping.” That’s probably the statement that made Lindsay’s eyes puff up like Balloon Boy’s UFO.
He also called her a “hollow” person on a taped interview with Maury Povich. She probably seemed hollow when he hugged her because she cut herself off emotionally from him after extended years of douchbaggery. Going on TV and talking about that will only make her pull farther away. And no, it won’t convince her to go to rehab.
So, naturally, after being called a hollow, near-death pill junkie and threatened with kidnapping, Lindsay started motions to file a restraining order against her estranged dad. She also issued this statement to US Magazine:
“I’m so hurt that someone who calls himself my father, needs to use the press to communicate with me. . . It’s so sad that he needs to stay in the media spotlight by using my name and making up excessive lies. He should instead try to be a real father . . . I have not spoken to my father, nor have I responded to his threatening and erratic messages over the last several months.”
Lindsay recently appeared in court for a probation checkup after The Right On Program informed the judge that she wasn’t following her probation requirements for her 2007 DUI. Lindsay got another year’s probation, but Michael, and many others, think she should have been ordered to rehab. She’s got an alcohol education class she’s supposed to be attending, but according her “friends” it hasn’t stopped her from partying.
Although many believed Lindsay had a final break from her long-time love Samantha Ronson after a series of tweets about Ronson’s family, according to Lindsay, they’re still on. Rumors swirled that she’d moved on fast to Balthazar Getty, who’s married, but she told Gossip Cop that was all bunk, saying “You think I would do that to Sam? I love her.”
