Dina Lohan has no “no idea” about “genius” Lindsay’s addictions

Michael Lohan has spent this week giving several interviews about Lindsay Lohan’s addictions. One of the many problems I (and others) had with Papa Lohan’s statements was that Michael seems to think that Lindsay is just a prescription pill addict. Not crack, not meth, not coke, not heroin. Just pills. Just yesterday he announced to Radar that he was planning a half-assed public intervention for Lindsay, but made sure to announce that if Dina “wasn’t on the same page” Lindsay’s “intervention” would fail. Now Dina has responded to Michael’s claims, and she’s giving him a run for his delusional money. By the way, Dina said all of the following as she was launching her line of budget footwear “Shoe-Han” yesterday. I would mock her sweater vest, but quite honestly, I think she looks ten years younger than Lindsay.

Dina Lohan has blasted her ex-husband, Michael, for claiming the family was planning an intervention to get their troubled daughter, Lindsay, to deal with her alleged addiction to prescription pills.

Furious Dina told Page Six yesterday: “I don’t go — like my ex — on national television and make things up. He’s estranged from Lindsay; he doesn’t know what’s going on in her life. Michael doesn’t talk to her.”

“I’ve had full custody of all my children for the last 10 years. He has been incarcerated for some of that time, so whatever is going on in Lindsay’s personal life is our business. And for him getting paid to say things about her when he’s five months behind in child support is wrong.”

She continued: “I can’t change Michael to make him do the right thing — that’s up to him and God. But it is hurtful for a child for her own father, whom she has no relationship with, to say things in public about her like that.”

When we asked if Lindsay does have addiction problems, Dina, who sounded tired and emotional, said, “I have no idea what he is talking about. I can’t comment on everything my ex says.”

Lindsay was also hurt by criticism of her debut Ungaro fashion line. Dina said, “The critics can say whatever they want, but Lindsay is a genius.”

She said that, despite her deal with the French fashion house, Lindsay would also be creatively involved in Dina’s shoe line, to debut in May. But the name won’t be “Shoe-Han.” Dina explained, “We are not going to announce the name so every Google and MySpace buys the domain name. Lindsay is signed to Ungaro, but she will definitely have input because she is so talented.”

Taking a final swipe at her daughter’s detractors, Dina pleaded, “Leave Lindsay alone. Let her be a real 23-year-old. Let her grow, and let her artistic abilities flourish. Stop judging the Britneys and the Lindsays. They are very creative girls, and that is a gift from a higher power of God.”

Oh. My. GOD. Alright, it’s one thing to be an abusive a-hole trying to get a quick press hit off your damaged daughter’s obvious cracked-out existence (re: Michael). It’s quite another to be so f-cking delusional that you look at Lindsay’s sorry state and think “genius” or “a gift from a higher power of God”. And since when did heart-shaped pasties become a “genius” fashion statement? Probably the same time someone said “Hey, let’s get Dina Lohan to design some shoe!” By the way, “Shoe-Han” R.I.P. I’ll miss that name.

This actually isn’t the first time Dina’s dropped the word “genius” when describing Lindsay. Over the summer Dina claimed, “She’s a genius. Such a good heart. Lindsay will direct one day. She loves directing.” Yeah, directing crack rock into the pipe.

    Yea, that’s it…she’s a tortured genius! I’m sure there are prescription drugs involved but only to daily “correct” the affects of the “other” drugs she’s involved with.

  2. RaeJillian says:

    i would like to say that a very close friend was addicted to pills and while they held it together their spouse, also addicted to pills, was a complete mess, always seemed drunk and well like she was sleep walking while in a very strange nightmare. She was not on crack, meth, or anything other than pills – A LOT of which were given to her by doctors, some of which she bought from friends with the rx. she lost weight (going from 5’7 117 to barely 100,) she acted completely irrational and her hair and skin were ratty and thin and just sad looking. it is possible that lindsey thinks just because doctors wrote the scripts she doesn’t have a problem, and that others are thinking, “she’s not on anything… she’s doing so much better.” sad, but true.

  3. Neelyo says:

    Some other famous proclamations from Dina:’ Lindsay is so good in GEORGIA RULES she’s going to win an Oscar!’

    And if that’s kind of genius that comes from god, I choose atheism.

    “The critics can say whatever they want, but Lindsay is a genius.”

    THIS is partially why she’s such a cracked-out mess. Her mother is in major denial and enables her.

    The ONE person who really is supposed to be looking out for her is more concerned with her daughter “liking” her and making sure she gets her 10%.

    Damn I really hate the fugly 80s boots everybody is plugging these days.

  6. Bambi says:

    @gg– you gotta have something to match the fugly Eighties clothes that are coming back! 😉

  7. Bambi says:

    It looks like Dina feels that she’s claimed the moral high ground because she’s not publicizing her daughter’s problems. If she’s denying a problem in public but addressing the problem privately, that would be understandable. It looks as though she may have spoken with her ex about staging an intervention at some point but he’s blown that to pieces with his explosive Radar interview.
    I appreciate how Dina, in turn, sabotaged Michael’s aspirations for this single father show by mentioning his failure to pay child support.

    You can also see where Lindsay gets the idea that the media and the public are the ones preventing her career from soaring.

    Dina seems focused on money and success, believing that if Lindsay has these things (again) she’ll stop taking drugs. Being rich and famous isn’t the cure for drug abuse, though– it’s the ability to feel good / worthy without those things that seems to be lacking here in multiple family members.

    All I want to know is who in the hell actually sat down with this lady and designed shoes with her?? These “pseudo-celebrities” are begining to get on my last nerve. Anyone and thier dog can design crap nowsdays. Makes it hard to take fashion seriously anymore. Being an ex-hanger (model) I find that sad.

  9. Jazz says:

    I’ll repeat my comment from an earlier post – go away Lohans! BTW, is that fugly blue shoe from Shoe-han?!

  10. princess pea says:

    Well, that confirms it. Linds is not going to get better any time soon.

    You know, I feel really confused about how it almost seems like Michael Lohan is the better parent right now. That can’t be right, though, can it?

    “The critics can say whatever they want, but Lindsay is a genius.” …sigh

  11. Shari Brock says:

    How in the hell can she not know? What kind of parent doesn’t know this?!

  12. Praise St. Angie! says:

    lol at princess pea…confusing, ain’t it?

    but you’re right…he sure won’t win any parenting awards but, in this case, at least he’s acknowledging that she’s got a problem. unlike her “lalala – I’m not listening!” mother.

    she may say “He’s estranged from Lindsay; he doesn’t know what’s going on in her life. Michael doesn’t talk to her.”

    but I don’t talk to Lindsay either and even I can see pics of her and know that she’s got drug problems.

  13. BitterBetty says:

    They say the opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference. so, as much as I hate Michel Lohan and his media whoring ways, at least he’s not completely ignoring Lindsy’s addictions. Dina Lohan on the other hand is a narcissist. to her, Lindsy’s existence is meant to serve her own desperate need to be “special” and better then most. I guess being the mother of a genius fits into that delusion. having a drug addicted hasbeen actress daughter does not.

  14. Eileen Yover says:

    I guess the reason I doubt her dad’s sincerity is he’s talking about the intervention before it happens. You’re not suppose to let the person know they are going to have one or it blows the whole element of surprise which is why interventions work in the first place. If he REALLY wanted her to get better, he’d put his famewhoring aside for a few weeks and keep his yapper shut until the intervention happens. So now she knows its going to happen and is prepared for it. He’s just as bad as she is.

  15. domestic goddess says:

    Instead of throwing missiles at the moon to search for water, couldn’t we just build a colony there, so we can shoot these disgusting “parental” units up to it, and the children (and Lindsay is still a child having never received the emotional stability that she so obviously has never had) to Shangri La. Take away all the credit cards, fancy clothes etc, and give them all what they need alot of love and even more discipline.

  16. Susette says:

    Now I’m wondering what Dina Lohan is on. Given her statements, her complete narcissism, and the way she’s raising Ali, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she was hitting some of the good stuff, herself.

  17. Ruby Red Lips says:

    What a disgusting completely delusional woman Dina is

    Genius…gift …god… is anyone else thinking mama Lohan should have a spell in a psyche ward….

    Lindsay is totally lost, & Susette I agree Dina is def doing the drugs too

  18. tanya says:

    Well – she didn’t directly deny that Lindsay has addiction problems – she just said that she has no idea what her ex-husband was *talking* about….

    It sounds a bit like she doesn’t want to say anything in public, but perhaps does want to take steps privately.

  19. Carrie Thompson says:

    She needs a good year under the guardianship of Jamie Spears- maybe he can do for her what he did for Britney. Dina Lohan has often used the excuse that Lindsay is an adult, so what can she do? I don’t care how old your children are, you are always the parent- you do what you have to do for your children. Even though she is 23, I don’t think Lindsay is able to function as an adult, even a young one.

  20. Lem says:

    those shoes! the caption says ‘her shoe line’ but when you blow the picture up they say Marc something (Fisher?)inside the red one’s.
    I am by no means a fashionista, most of my shoes are asics,lol, but lawd those shoes are bad, bad, bad. they look plastic. and the sole/heel on those blue loafers. WTF?

    she launched the line yesterday but won’t tell us what it is called. how is that supposed to work, genius?

  21. princess pea says:

    I’m interested in her child support harping, too. What the general opinion here:
    Should Michael have to pay Dina support for Ali, if Ali lives with Lindsay on the other side of the country?

    (I understand there’s a brother, too, and he probably still lives with mom. So maybe there should be support payments there. Maybe. Typically, if one parent makes way more money than the other, I don’t feel the broke parent should be giving the rich parent money. That might just be me, because my parents worked custody and payment out amicably between themselves, so I’m biased. And Dina has a glorious new contract for ShoeHan. What does Michael do to earn money?)

  22. Icecat says:

    Dina Lohan is probably on the same damn drugs as Lindsay.
    I’ve taken Adderall. I know what it does. It is basically like snorting a line of Meth. I have thought for a really long time that Lindsay was abusing either Meth or Adderall. I am talking from experience. She needs help and unfortunately she is not going to get it from either of her parents…


  23. crash2GO2 says:

    Oh, God SAVE us! From these Lohans, their offspring, and those godawful boots!!

    I’m going to go throw up now.

  24. Lita says:

    “Stop judging the Britneys and the Lindsays. They are very creative girls, and that is a gift from a higher power of God.”

    So .. Dina is *intentionally* describing her daughter as having a commonality with Britney? The pillster-posterchild for mental illness and legal guardianship need? Yikes!
