Now that his daughter, Lindsay Lohan, is sitting behind bars, Michael Lohan says he plans on visiting her “every day she’s there” and if she won’t let him he’ll write her letters!
“I couldn’t watch Lindsay get put in cuffs, so I had to leave the room,” Michael told Fox News Channel’s America Live with Megyn Kelly.
It was also hard for him to see his daughter Ali Lohan‘s reaction.
“It’s heartbreaking not only to see Lindsay in that position, but my daughter Ali took it quite, in a very, very hard way,” he explained.
Lindsay’s father believes the sentence would be fair for someone who wasn’t on drugs, but not for his daughter.
“If this was a person that was in their right state of mind and wasn’t on drugs and acted that way, and defied the court and carved that into their finger nails, yea,” he said, “They deserve everything they can get.”
However, he believes jail time won’t help Lindsay he get of drugs.
“There were a lot of mistakes made. I don’t believe she belongs in jail first,” Michael said. “Cause in jail, she’s just going to go through the process; she’s going to stay on the same drugs she’s on. And it’s just going to go on and on.”
So Michael plans on appealing Lindsay’s case.
“We’re going to be working with Shawn Chapman Holley to hopefully put in an appeal on Lindsay’s behalf,” he announced.
Until then, Michael will continue to support his dauhghter, whether she likes it or not.
“I’m here for her, I’ll go to the jail everyday that she’s there,” he said. “Hopefully she’ll let me visit her. If not, I’ll write letters to her, and I’ll be there for her.”
But earlier this week, Lindsay Tweeted, “I don’t want my ex-father anywhere near me no matter where I am. He is crazy and scares me.”
So it sounds like she may opt for letters rather than personal visits!
