When Michael Lohan started spouting off yesterday about how Lindsay was exposed to drug dealers and other criminals from when she was 15 and constantly being tailed by police when she moved from NY to LA, he did two things.
#1 He basically threw his daughter under the bus. No one has ever brought anything like this up in public and no one was likely to because of the stigma of being associated with drug dealers and criminals. It was done, it was over and it was six years ago. Michael Lohan is so desperate for publicity that he said, "you know what. I have some good dish on my daughter that the tabs will love and I will get another day of being in front of the media." This is his daughter. I don't care if she used every drug on the planet, f**ked a million guys and knew every criminal in the world. It's your kid and you should do everything you can to protect that child, not throw out fresh meat for the media. It's disgusting.
The second thing the asshole did was just confirm that he and Dina are really horrible parents. If throwing the kid under the bus isn't enough, you have to remember that Lindsay was living at home under their roof when all this started. Her parents had the power to stop it. Her parents should have said, "you know. Our daughter doesn't need to be hanging out with drug dealers and other criminals. I know her career is important, but she is only 15. Maybe we should move to the middle of nowhere and get her back on the right path and to make sure our other young kids also don't follow the same path." Instead, Michael and Dina just let it happen. Hell for all we know they might have been joining her or using with her.
