It’s been awhile since Michael Lohan last spoke up about his famous daughter Lindsay Lohan, but now the overly-verbose dad is at it again, saying he’s worried about Lilo’s health and blames her troubles on prescription medication.
“I’m going to get her off the prescription drugs that she’s on,” Michael tells RadarOnline.com in his typical, no-holds-barred fashion. “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.”
According to the interview, Michael didn’t want the specific medications Lindsay is on to be revealed, but says they’ve taken over.
“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.”
Michael recently spent time with his daughter after a break-in at her home, and reveals how shocked he was to see how she’s 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,” Michael says.
So why is the infamously loose-lipped dad speaking out about his daughter? Michael says he fears for her health, and that she’s being taken advantage of by 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,” Michael 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.”
