Drug-addled father talks about drug-addled daughter

Tbdmichael060107 It takes one to know one, they say, so who better to dish about Lindsay Lohan than papa Michael? E! Online reports that the ex-con revealed his daughter indeed suffers from multiple addictions, including alcohol and the painkiller OxyContin.

“I spoke to the people treating Lindsay, because I wanted to make sure she was getting the right care,” Mike told E! Online. “And I’m satisfied they are doing the right thing for her, helping her detox from the painkillers and things. That’s a very important step.”

That’s good, since the actress wants nothing to do with him. But given mother Dina’s bizarre behavior, wouldn’t it be funny if Michael was the sane one?

Update: Meanwhile, TMZ is reporting LiLo could be losing hundreds of thousands of dollars on her upcoming 21st birthday party, with sponsors bailing out left and right. First Svedka vodka backed out, and now other possible partners for the July bash — including Caesars Palace, the Social House restaurant in the strip’s Treasure Island casino and Pure nightclub are wondering if it’s such a great idea to host a party for an actress less than week out of rehab. That’d be like handing a baby a loaded gun, all right.
