Michael Lohan had a rare moment of clarity and told the world that he thinks Lindsay is going to fail at rehab.
Can I just start by saying that these are some of my favourite photos of Lindsay that I’ve seen in recent years? You can almost smell the alcohol, delusion and desperation as you click through them. Makes me feel nice about my life choices.
Anyway, y’all KNOW how I love me a Papa Lohan press interaction, and as usual, MiLo has delivered the goods. I love when Lindsay isn’t speaking to him because it means that all of his fatherly advice for her goes through TMZ. Since she’s off to rehab and he hasn’t finished writing his book yet, he called up TMZ to chat about Lindsay, because what else is there to do throughout the day when you’re Michael Lohan? Listen to the audio here, or read below to find out what fatherly pearldrops of wisdom Mesh Shirt Lohan had to offer his eldest today:
TMZ: So, uh, with us right now? Michael Lohan! Michael, welcome again to TMZ Live.
MiLo: Heeey Harvey, hey guys.
TMZ: I was wondering, at the rehab centre, there’s a ban on tobacco? Is that correct?
MiLo: Yes, there is.
TMZ: I mean, you must know how hard it is to quit smoking, that seems insane to me that she can’t smoke for 90 days.
MiLo: Well it is really hard, you know, she’s battling a number of addictions, with drugs, pills and cocaine, to imagine someone coming off of cigarettes, too. And not to mention, she has to detox when she first gets in there and that’s really tough.
TMZ: Is your daughter going to succeed at this, Michael?
MiLo: I’m praying to God she will.
TMZ: What do you think?
MiLo: Honestly? I hope so, but I don’t think so.
TMZ: Michael, we’re out of time, but uh, what do you think of her going to Coachella this weekend?
MiLo: I think it’s probably one of the worst ideas she could’ve ever, EVER had. I really think it’s not a good thing, she’s around… what did the court say, Harvey? ‘Stay away from people or places where there might be alcohol.’
TMZ: Well, that’s not even ‘might’. There’s not even a ‘might’ involved when it’s Coachella.
So here’s a fun fact for the morning. MiLo went to the same rehab LiLo is headed to on May 2 back in 1989. It didn’t take. But you gotta love someone who thought that it was okay to kick his girlfriend in the vagina saying that a music festival is ‘one of the worst ideas’, haha. Ohhh, Michael. You silly bitch.
