Lindsay Lohan was thinking about getting a restraining order against her dad, but was advised not to by her team of lawyers!
Via a source from Radar online:
“Lindsay is being told by her lawyers that it’s a disastrous idea for her to try and get a restraining order against her father, Michael Lohan. First of all, there is no guarantee that a judge would grant a restraining order against Michael. Michael did show up at her house and try and stage an intervention, because he believes that she is in immediate danger because of her alleged drug and alcohol addiction. That is hardly a form of harassment.”
Those lawmen have a point, linz. And know what else?
“Secondly, if Lindsay were to petition for a restraining order, this story will just keep going, making it a never ending media cycle of stories about the Lohan family drama. For an actress trying to get her career back on track, this is not going to help her get future work and makes producers very leary to hire her. There would likely have to be a full hearing for Lindsay’s quest to get a restraining order, and Michael would have the opportunity to take the stand and testify. He could reveal more information about his concerns about Lindsay that could further damage her.”
It’s true. I know I’d be angry if my dad was Michael Lohan, but come on. A lot of his actions- though famewhore-y in nature, might look to a court like he was just being a Dad to a woman who is clearly struggling with some substance abuse issues, no?
I’d give Lindsay Lohan a restraining order against Los Angeles, if I had my way!
