As Lindsay Lohan left Los Angeles for New York on Thursday night, lawyers for Lindsay and her father Michael Lohan have agreed to meet in person next week, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Lindsay's saga has unfolded with daily headlines of partying, accusations and denials. Her father and some friends have insisted Lindsay needs to go to rehab while she has steadfastly denied it, supported by her mother Dina.
Now Lisa Bloom, representing Michael Lohan, and Shawn Chapman Holley, repping Lindsay will get face-to-face to discuss the situation for the first time, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Michael insists his daughter needs to be in rehab. He was furious that her younger sister Ali was left in Lindsay's care and recently brought Sherriff's deputies on a "welfare check" to Lindsay apartment.
A source close to the situation says Lindsay is in "a complete downward spiral" and non-family members are desperate to find a solution for the actress.
Michael and Dina have traded accusations as the situation unfolds. Dina claims Michael simply wants to get his hands on Lindsay's money. But Michael says Dina is in denial about Lindsay's problems.
The new development with the lawyers agreeing to meet to discuss the situation signals that things are moving past a trading insults phase and into serious discussions.
Lohan has been partying regularly and feuding with Sam Ronson. She reportedly threw a glass at Sam's head, causing her ex to Tweet drug allegations apparently aimed at Lindsay.
