Michael Lohan: Lindsay’s a prescription pill addict, not a crackhead

After spending any amount of time looking at the horrible pictures of Lindsay Lohan on her big, jacked, cracked-out, sketchy Paris trip, most people have come out with several opinions about LL. First, the girl’s style is bullsh-t. Secondly, the girl is messing up her face big time. Something about lip injections, but her forehead and general puffiness might indicate something a lot more serious in the plastic surgery department. Third, the girl is on drugs. No one’s eyes are that glassy without some major help from some kind of pipe.

Michael Lohan disagrees with us. Sort of. Lindsay’s dad thinks that her problem is a prescription drug addiction. Michael has given an interview to Radar where he describes how he’s the one who will save Lindsay from the clutches of the… prescription drugs….? I’m still not buying it. That girl is on something heavier than Adder all (which sources have claimed in the past that Lindsay was/is addicted to). If you can stand Michael’s smarmy grossness, try getting through this interview:

Lindsay Lohan’s Spring 2010 collection for Ungaro debuted over the weekend in Paris to lukewarm reviews. But it was the actress’s shockingly frail appearance that garnered the most attention.

Wearing a white, asymmetrical mini-dress, Lohan looked out of it and gaunt as she walked the runway following Sunday’s show.

Now in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Lindsay’s dad, Michael Lohan, is speaking out about his daughter’s downward spiral; one he blames on prescription drugs.

“I’m going to get her off the prescription drugs that she’s on,” Lohan told us in a candid interview. “I hate it when people talk about illegal drug abuse… because it’s not just drinking and illegal drugs that kill you. Prescription drugs can destroy and kill a person and are sometimes harder to stop. Look at Heath Ledger and Michael Jackson.”

Lohan asked us not to reveal what specific medications he believes his daughter is abusing, but says they’ve taken over her life.

“You know why Lindsay’s not acting in feature films right now? Because she can’t,” he said. “Because the girl with all the talent is hidden and buried deep inside this fungus that’s grown because of the prescription drugs. She can’t be herself. When you hug her she’s like, vacant inside. When she kisses or holds me I get chills, and not in a good way-in a bad way.”

Lohan had a chance to spend some quality time with his oldest daughter following the break-in at her Hollywood Hills home. He says he was shocked by how much she’d changed.

“She’s a different person. I was out there for a week when she was living at the Sunset Marquis Hotel and I would sit there and cry. It was horrible. This was not the kid I raised,” Lohan told RadarOnline.com.

Lohan says he’s speaking out now because he’s worried about Lindsay’s health and fears she’s being taken advantage of by those he calls “enablers.”

“I don’t care what anyone says about Lindsay. The Lindsay Lohan I lived with when I was married was a focused, intelligent, gifted girl that needed no prescription medication, no assistance from a therapist. Whoever the people are that came into her life and convinced her otherwise should be thrown in jail, because they’re the same type of people who are responsible for the deaths of Heath Ledger, Michael Jackson and DJ AM,” Lohan said. “Everything was fine in our family until Dina and I got divorced. And that’s when all the kids’ lives started to unravel… including Lindsay’s.”

[From Radar]

I dry-heaved when he said, “When she kisses or holds me I get chills, and not in a good way-in a bad way.” And I don’t buy that Lindsay’s problems are rooted in her parent’s divorce, either. I think she was screwed up long before then, but I’m willing to give significant blame to both Dina and Michael. They’re unquestionably (in my mind) terrible parents who are still trying to profit from Lindsay at any cost, even as her career, beauty, and talent has evaporated. Michael’s just the parent who’s trying the angle of profiting from his daughter’s drug abuse. In any case, it doesn’t really matter. I’ve said it before, Lindsay isn’t going to get help for anything because in her mind, she’s functioning. And that may be the saddest thing of all.

    yeah! get it right damn it!!

  2. Susette says:

    At least it’s better than Dina Lohan’s denial. Once he cures her of the prescription drug addiction, he might want to get started on her addictions to meth, coke, and huffing cheap self-tanner.

  3. TaylorB says:

    God this whole situation is just pathetic, poor girl… I might feel differently if her parents had been helpful in some way, but one of them publicly shames her for having a same sex relationship and the other one actually takes her to bars. No wonder that girl is a screwed up mess.

  4. Eileen Yover says:

    She looks horrible! And very coked out. She’s definitely on cocaine.
    I feel so sad that I’m thinking she’s not going to be around much longer. I might not care for her celebrity, but I certainly don’t want her to die a tragic death either. It’s a shame she doesn’t have someone to send her to hardcore counceling and rehab. She’s desperately needs it.

  5. Lindsay says:

    I don’t believe it is only prescription drugs. I do not doubt she takes them incorrectly – worrying, if I could work up enough goodwill to actual care anymore, I wouldn’t be surprised if painkillers are in that mix, most of which have acetaminophen and taking a handful at a time is really hard on your liver – probably the most overworked organ in her body.

    But her face is way to jack up. Far beyond bad plastic surgery or even years of heavy smoking alone. Prescription do not take that much of a toll on your face. That is clearly result of chronic use of alcohol, smoking, and street drugs. If you have ever seen before and after pictures of “meth face” it really changes your face and really fast.

    Warning if you look it up it is kind of disturbing. Probably why the show it to older kids in anti-drug programs.

    “I’m going to get her off the prescription drugs that she’s on…

    … just as soon as I finish telling all the media outlets I can. And doing an impromptu press conference for TMZ and any other paps I can find. And hanging in the Hamptons. But I swear, I’m gonna get there. I’m worried, but not like, THAT worried. You know?”

    Michael Lohan, Father of the year.

  7. Kris says:

    Gonna have to agree with Lindsay on this one. I think her drug of choice is meth. Her looks have changed too drastically in a short period of time for it to be prescription drugs.. What a waste.

  8. Michelle says:

    It doesn’t matter what she’s on- the fact of the matter is that she is a very, very sick, addicted woman and needs treatment- not this enabling, famewhoring bs from the likes of her parents. I know she is an adult, and it’s hard to sympathize for her being that she’s done it all to herself, but really she is f*cking clueless and has nobody to help her. Sure, they’ll air out all her problems to the press, but that’s as far as their parenting expertise goes. Sickening.

    And another thing, why is her 15 year old sister allowed to tag along with her everywhere, including bars and clubs she is not even old enough to legally enter, when their parents are well aware of Lindsay’s drug problems? How effed up is that? It’s reckless child endangerment, and it’s paving the road for Ali to repeat all of her big sis’ screwups.

    If Michael Lohan really gave a damn about his daughter’s well being, he’d take notes from Jamie Spears instead of douching it up with Jon Grosselin. Not that Spears is a model father either, but whatever he did obviously worked for Britney.

  9. dude says:

    Her parents should be ashamed. Their greed pushed her into stardom too soon, into a life she wasnt ready for. Now her career is gone, her self esteem has crushed, her looks are ruined!

  10. Prissa says:

    What did Michael Lohan mean by he gets chills and not in the good way??? Is a father supposed to get good chills after hugging his daughter? I didn’t get that…

    She is definatly on street drugs. On a post just a few days ago she had dried blood in her nostril and I’m quite sure that came from snorting coke.

    I wouldn’t say she has meth face though. Most meth faces I’ve seen have those horrible sores on them. But I guess with Linds anything is possible.

  11. Joe says:

    In fact, prescription meds will fk you up faster and harder than meth and coke. They have become the most commonly abused substance in the states. Vital organs are destroyed by meds faster than most other substances including alcohol.

  12. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I don’t buy the excuse that she’s clueless and has nobody to help her.

    she’s been to rehab 3 times, so she’s NOT clueless about addiction. and people have TRIED to help her, but (sorry to be cliche) she’s got to help HERSELF, first, by admitting that she’s got a problem.

    But, as Kaiser said, she’s still functioning (though for such a once-promising actress, taking a PussyCat Doll’s leftovers is hardly “functioning”), so in her mind she’s OK. Until she wants to get clean/sober, she’ll continue to spiral.

    And, after reading about Tyler Perry and his childhood traumas, I have (less than) ZERO sympathy for this train wreck of a person. As I’ve previously said, there are people who have pulled themselves up from WAY further down than she is, under more difficult circumstances. She chooses NOT to.

    Don’t feel sorry for her. She may have had sh*tty parents, but she’s an adult now, and should know that the choices that she’s making are stupid.

  13. TwinkleToes says:

    Her father is talking about adderal abuse. She’s probably doing CRANK (Meth that doesn’t come out right and is much cheaper) too. Lithium in the stuff is so hard on the liver. She also just had cheek implants put in so her upper gums probably aren’t healing well making her look sicker.

  14. HarbinsMom says:

    Michael Lohan’s too busy trying to throw his daughter under the bus because he’s trying to garner attention for himself (and the other stellar candidate for father of the year, Jon Gosselin), than to really care for her. If he HONESTLY feels his daughter is addicted to whatever drugs, then he needs to take her straight to rehab, not call a press conference. But, again, he’s taking his cues from his good buddy Jon, who only cares about his kids too. These 2 idiots care about their kids only while their calling their press conferences. Idiot.

  15. crash2GO2 says:

    He’s an enabler. Pointing fingers everywhere except at himself and at her.

  16. CB Rawks says:

    “When you hug her she’s like, vacant inside.”

    That’s because she hates your guts.

    “When she kisses or holds me I get chills, and not in a good way-in a bad way.”


  17. Michelle says:

    Praise St. Angie: Oh, I agree, and I don’t sympathize with her at all- I can’t help but pity her, however. I’m just saying that obviously she needs treatment and is incapable of getting it herself because she’s such a trainwreck, and none of the people who claim to care for and love her will step up to the plate and get her some f*cking help. I know if it was my child that screwed up, regardless of age, I would do what I could to help them, not run off and vomit all her troubles to some tabloid. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if Michael or Dina called up A&E to see how big a paycheck they could get for having a special Lohan episode of Intervention.

    I guess clueless isn’t the word I should have used, but Lohan just seems completely “lost” to me, if that makes sense; we all know she isn’t going to get better and seek help of her own accord, and I find it sad that she has no one who can kick her ass and/or help get her the help she needs. No family, friends, colleagues… nothing. Everyone in the girl’s life is just as f*cked up as she is, and I can’t help but find that sad.

    Off topic: I read about Tyler Perry earlier, and while the things he endured growing up broke my heart, knowing that he grew up to be a normal, successful, functioning member of society made me respect and like him even more. Maybe someone ought to forward the letter he wrote to the Lohans, so they’ll stop with the victim complex already.

  18. Sigh. says:

    Yeah, cuz crack is wack, crack is cheap.

  19. princess pea says:

    @ Michelle – …”and none of the people who claim to care for and love her will step up to the plate and get her some f*cking help.”

    The thing you maybe don’t get it that they CAN’T. Legally, you (an individual) cannot force someone to get help. So, get her help HOW? Aside from a court order, there is nothing that anyone can do but her. And she is happy; sycophants on twitter and myspace still love her and tell her she is beautiful and perfect. I understand that it’s sad to see, and I sympathize with the idea that her parents royally f*cked up in teaching her responsibility… but their hands are kind of tied. They cannot lock her in, or forcibly enroll her in a rehab program. That’s the law; she’s a grownup.

    And I am 100% on board with Praise. She’s been to rehab. Over and over. She won’t get better if she doesn’t want change.

  20. Michelle says:

    @ princess pea: I never said anyone could force her into rehab- obviously that is not possible, and it’s not that difficult to “get it,” which is why I never even mentioned it.

    What I did say, however, is that everyone around her continually enables her, which is even worse than not trying to help her at all. Kissing her ass, partying with her, making up excuses for her cracked-out antics, and generally never taking responsibility or admitting that she’s f*cked up. No one is there that can possibly do any good for her.

    What I’m saying is she’s never going to truly hit rock bottom and truly want help with people doing nothing but perpetually enable her. And I can’t help but find that a sad situation, regardless of the fact that I don’t even like her. No one deserves to self-destruct like that.

    Not trying to sound snarky or anything- just want to clarify 🙂

  21. TaylorB says:

    Did she actually get cheek implants? I thought she was just gaunt from the drugs. Hell she looks just flat out strange these days.

  22. LolaBella says:

    It is truly horrible when a parent stoops to being a famewhore and buying into his own self-importance and uses his child’s obvious disease for his own benefit.

    I don’t care what specifically Lindsay is addicted to, just make an effort to get your daughter some help and support her as a PARENT before she overdoes and dies!

    He and Dina have missed the mark so badly with Lindsay and it makes me stabby that they continue to enable her behavior by their lax parenting. They need to stop being part of her entourgae and act like her parents and institute some tough love before this girl ends up as the latest ‘breaking news…star found dead in home from drug overdose’ headline on TMZ a la Heath and DJ AM.

  23. MARKY MARK says:

    Years ago I hung out with people who thought that certain drugs were trashy and other drugs were not. Drugs are drugs and an addict is just that an addict. No matter how much father of the year Lohan tries to paint this–its all ugly and he is incapable of helping her unless he (& Lindsey) fully accept this

  24. moo says:

    I think we said COCAINE, not crack!

    Asswipe… so out of touch!

  25. crash2GO2 says:

    If you look at her body, she’s actually gained weight, not lost it. So the cheekbone definition makes sense now, if she did get implants. Her face definitely looks strange – she looks pale and puffy. Do we have another Misha Barton incident in the making?

  26. tooey says:

    Oh, he could care less; he just jumped at the chance to utter Lindsay’s name in the same breath as Michael Jackson and Heath Ledger. You know, cuz she’s just as legendary (eyeroll)…

  27. Francesa says:

    Pain killers and plastic surgery. What’s next? Proprofol to sleep? Such a pretty girl, gone so wrong…

  28. Katyusha says:

    Potato, potahto.

  29. Jenna says:

    How can he even put her name in a sentence comparing her to Heath or Micheal? I’m just wondering.

    Agree 100%. Hell, I even managed to (eventually) end up feeling a huge amount of sympathy for Britney Spears when she was going through hell, but this one, there’s nothing, there’s not one bit of sympathy there. I do NOT wish death on her, because that’s ridiculous and horrible, I just want her to go away, keep her horrible attitude & inability to claim ANY responsibility for ANYTHING to herself and stop showing up on my computer 😉

  31. gg says:

    And M. Lohan isn’t her enabler? His choice of words says otherwise. Looks to me like she’s had cheek implants which explains why she looks so different. And her skin around her mouth looks tighter.

  32. hmm says:

    Anyone who saw the pictures of her at the Ungaro fashion show and the after party realizes what ails her. I don’t know if she’s addicted to prescription drugs but her appearance and her odd behavior point to an addiction to meth. It’s sad because a few years ago the debate was Hillary or Lindsay and now it’s just “will Lindsay live to 25.” Sad.

  33. Fat Elvis says:

    The idea of cheek implants really creeps me out. More so than any other surgical procedure (of the cosmetic variety). As for Lindsay, I also have no sympathy for her perpetual “circling the drain” existence. She’s a nasty, self-entitled brat who’s brought all this on herself, as far as I’m concerned.

  34. Bambi says:

    I’m not an expert on drugs, but whatever she was on at the fashion show dilated her pupils. I think that’s coke, or something that has the same effect as coke.

    And if you’re doing lots of coke, I imagine you’d eventually want to mellow out with a little valium or oxycontin. Or both?

    But judging by her face, which is bloated and dehydrated, there is probably a large amount of alcohol involved.

    I’m hoping that the very weird changes her face is going through can be attributed to bloating– when you continually drink large quantities of alcohol, your body starts storing water as a defense against dehydration. Your face and your belly are two tell-tale locations where the bloating shows up. Dehydration would explain why her skin and hair look so parched.

    While bloating from alcoholism is not something I usually hope someone has, it would be preferable to cheek implants in a 23-year-old(!)

    That’s just my own hypothesis. I agree that it doesn’t really matter WHAT she’s on at the moment. It looks like she probably takes whatever she can get.

  35. Jazz says:

    Hope Jon Gosselin is watching this because that will be his kids one day if he’s not careful.

  36. GatsbyGal says:

    I think she’s only everything. No drug scares away that mess.

  37. TaylorB says:

    Even more than butt implants? 😉

  38. the original kate says:

    does anyone else think maybe daddy lohan has some un-paternal thoughts about his daughter(s)? he is way creepy…

  39. Jess says:

    I feel bad for Lindsay and her family… this has to be a very hard time for all of them. Honestly I think that she has a problem but I believe that it’s much more than just addiction. She’s starting to look like Melissa Joan Hart (no offense to either actress). And as far as her father goes… I think he is DESPERATE for attention, and now he can try to look like a hero instead of the bad father. He should be focusing more on his ill daughter!
