Lindsay Lohan needs to be in rehab for at least three months, her father told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive video interview.
What’s more, Michael Lohan is hoping to make that point to the judge overseeing Lindsay’s case at her status hearing on Thursday.
“I’ve been trying to get into court with the judge for a long time,” Lohan told RadarOnline.com. “The last time she was in court the judge should have drug tested her. If she had, I know Lindsay would have come up dirty and she would have been thrown into rehab.”
Lindsay is not required to be in Beverly Hills court Thursday as a judge reviews her progress report from a DUI conviction.
But even though Lindsay won’t be in court her father promised he would be there – and he wants to be heard.
“My daughter needs rehab for at least 3 months,” Michael told RadarOnline.com. “Come on… let’s face it, there are pictures of her out there—you reported it, others have reported it…of her drinking and taking pills in public. If you’re on probation, is that what the system approves of?”
Michael Lohan sat down with RadarOnline.com for an exclusive interview with his new girlfriend Kate Major. And while they discussed everything from their new relationship, to their old “friend” Jon Gosselin, it was Lindsay’s health that concerned Michael the most.
He’s convinced that Lindsay has an addiction to prescription pills and Lohan said he plans to confront the judge AND hopes to speak to Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holly.
As RadarOnline reported, Lindsay was given an extra year to complete her alcohol awareness program back in October. Since then, the actress has been compliant with the judge’s requirements, but Michael thinks more needs to be done.
He also revealed that he and his daughter exchanged heated text messages as recently as Tuesday night and that Lindsay became upset and angry when he told her she needed to get help. When asked how they left things at the end of the conversation Michael admitted, “I honestly don’t know. Our relationship is strained.”
Speaking to the camera, Michael addressed Lindsay directly, telling her, “It really p****s me off that when you have trouble or when you’re in St. Barth’s and you have nowhere to turn to and you tell me everything is going awry and your sister Ali Lohan, age 15 is missing…I’m up 6 hours in the night trying to hire a jet to pick you up and take you home…and then you flip the script on me.
“Whenever you need me, you call me. Whenever you have a problem, I’m there for you. You can’t backstab people. You can’t turn your back on the people that love you and want to help you.”
Lohan continued, “This is about you getting well, you getting healthy, me loving you and wanting you to do the right thing. The prescription drugs are killing you.”
