And LiLo's parents have two more kids to ruin

Tbdlohan081007 Lindsay Lohan’s bodyguard from 2002 to 2005, Tony Almeida, tells In Touch that LiLo is just following the example set by hard-partying parents Dina and Michael, who considered their movie-star daughter a “cash cow.”

“They counted on her to pay their bills ... I saw Lindsay exhausted, begging her mother for some time off,” he says. They looked the other way as a 15-year-old Linds shared a room with 14-year-old boyfriend Aaron Carter at a Loews in Miami Beach, happy he was someone who could help her recording career, and ignored the signs of boozing and coke-snorting by age 18.

Of course, they had their own problems. When the starlet was 16, daddy got so angry at her while driving that he “slammed on the brakes and dragged her out of the car, pushed her up against the hood, screamed at her and called her a slut. This was on the Long Island Expressway! I got in the middle of it and pulled him off.”

And her mom “let her do whatever she wanted, just to keep her happy and working ... (At her 16th birthday party) Lindsay drank whatever she wanted — I saw her drinking beer and mixed drinks with my own eyes.”

Of course, we didn’t need a guy named after a dead 24 character to tell us her parents were the ones who screwed her up.
