With Lindsay Lohan at the center of a flurry of legal and substance abuse problems, both of her parents are trying to take some serious action. Lohan’s father, Michael, recently spoke with RadarOnline about his plans to file a conservatorship, which would allow him legal control of LiLo’s well-being and finances.
“You bet your a** I’m filing a conservatorship,” Michael said. He explained that he’s taking this action after learning that Lindsay’s mother, Dina has made moves to do the same thing. According to Michael, Dina has been working with Lindsay’s new business manager, Lou Taylor, to put the starlet under a conservatorship.
But Michael is working to beat them to the punch. “I just signed the retainer with an attorney,” he said. “I consulted one because I wanted to know what my options were if Dina and Lou Taylor file one. My attorney told me my best bet was to file one first to avoid any problems.”
Though Michael said he doesn’t actually “want to be Lindsay’s conservator.” Rather, her estranged father wants to be a petitioner, putting the actual role of conservator in someone else’s hands. “Then I want an independent third party to act as conservator over Lindsay’s person and estate,” he said.
Something tells us this won’t be a clean-cut battle.
