Michael told that he still plans to visit Lindsay on his own, and if she refuses to see him, he’ll keep trying unitl she agrees to

meet with him.

“I actually went down to Betty Ford Thursday night to try and see her, but they told me it was too late and I would have to come back,” he told exclusively.

“I have to talk to my daughter. I know she’s angry about this conservatorship being filed and I want her to know that I never wanted to do it in the first place. The only reason I did it was so that she would find out and keep Dina and Lou Taylor from filing their own.  I don’t want her to be stressed out over this.”


Michael said he did manage to get through to the head of Betty Ford over the phone, where he says they spoke at length about a recent set of pictures showing Lindsay walking with her counselor on the Betty Ford grounds.

“I was angry about that. No one should be getting that close to her while she’s on the grounds there,” he said. “I wanted to talk to the head of Betty Ford and ask how that happened and figure out how it can be prevented in the future.”
