“I am getting in touch with Lindsay’s team, including Tom Hansen, Blair Berk, Lou Taylor and Shawn Chapman Holley, in the hope of trying, again, to have them to persuade Dina to sit down so we both can iron out our differences,” he said.
“Quite frankly, everyone knows this, including all the counselors and therapists — Dina and I need to get along and put our differences aside if Lindsay is going to have any chance at a full recovery without relapse.”
Dina has accused Michael Lohan of being abusive towards her — the basis of Lindsay’s song Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father) — and of slacking off on his child support payments for their youngest two kids.
Michael has a habit of airing the family’s dirty laundry to the media, but Dina hasn’t been the world’s greatest mom, either. Michael says that all has to change and they must get along if Lindsay’s recovery is to be a success.
“Everyone has been asking Dina to sort out her issues with me, but the general consensus is that she simply can’t admit or take responsibility and she is afraid to do so,” he told RadarOnline. “But that isn’t even part of it, she doesn’t have to admit anything. All she has to do is keep Lindsay and the kids out of our differences and try to get along for their sake.”
“She can make all the claims she likes about child support — the truth of which is that every cent owed has been paid and even more — but there is a much deeper and important issue here: Lindsay’s health is first and foremost.”
“Our kids are first and we should be second.”
Lindsay is allowed to leave rehab on January 3, but it remains to be seen if she will stay on her own accord.
