Michael Lohan told RadarOnline.com exclusively that his daughter Lindsay's well-publicized troubles come from a "broken heart" stemming from his divorce with her mother Dina, which he said she's been trying to fill with "all the wrong things.
“I'm here to show support," Michael told RadarOnline.com as he arrived in Los Angeles around midnight Wednesday, the same day his daughter is due in court. "Not only for Lindsay, but to be there for Dina and the kids, as well."
Michael told RadarOnline.com exclusively that while a restraining order keeping him away from Dina is in effect for around five more months, he doesn't anticipate any problems, as the two have been able to keep things civil in their co-parenting efforts.
"It doesn't matter," he said of the restraining order.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Lindsay is due in a Santa Monica courtroom Wednesday in connection with a charge of felony grand theft over a $2,500 necklace prosecutors say the Mean Girls star lifted from a Venice Beach jewelry store.
There, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz will determine if her case can be settled with a plea deal or by some other resolution. If the troubled actress is found guilty -- and in violation of her probation connected with her 2007 DUI conviction -- she could be sent back to jail.
The hearing begins at 8:30 am PT, and if the case cannot be resolved Wednesday, a new court date will be set.
