Michael Lohan was the ringleader in an emergency intervention for his daughter Lindsay Lohan on Friday, and according to sources, Lindsay’s ENTIRE TEAM was behind him 100%.
TMZ has seen emails proving that her team, including her lawyers and her manager, were more than ready to stage an intervention. The emails are between Michael and Evan Hainey (Lindsay’s manager), Dave Feldman (Lindsay’s entertainment lawyer) and Shawn Holley (criminal defense lawyer). The emails went back and forth from September 23rd to October 18th.
When Michael and Linday’s team showed up at her home, they were not welcome. Here’s what went down on Friday:
Cops just showed up at Lindsay Lohan‘s Beverly Hills home after Michael Lohan and others tried to stage an intervention to get Lindsay into treatment … TMZ has learned.
Michael Lohan and several others showed up at Lindsay’s house Friday afternoon … believing she has fallen off the wagon … and they believe that’s why she has become a no-show for post-production work on her upcoming movie, “The Canyons.”
We spoke to Michael outside Lindsay’s place … and he said his daughter is surrounding herself with “a bunch of alcoholics and drug addicts.”
We’re told Lindsay was at the house when Michael and team arrived, but someone claiming to be her boyfriend shooed them away. The “boyfriend” told TMZ Lindsay was inside and any problems Lindsay has will not be solved by her father.
Someone called the cops to report a trespassing call. Cops are currently on scene.
Michael reportedly emailed Lindsay’s team, and claimed he had been informed by several people that Lindsay was “drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day”, and “I have seen empty bottles and even cocaine in her room at the Chateau.” He added “She is AGAIN, taking pills to keep her up and to sleep (adderall)!! I even know that she is and was drinking during work as far back as Liz and Dick!”
Michael begs, “I am asking you to PLEASE PLEASE find a way to get her to LA toward the end of the first week of October or the beginning of the second so we can do an intervention and FINALLY end this madness!”
LiLo’s manager Evan responds the same day to Michael and Shawn, “I am hearing the same things.” Evan continues, Lindsay will fly back to L.A. Oct 15th — and they should plan an intervention for that week.
Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn responds unequivocally, “Let’s do it.”
On Oct. 12th Michael and LiLo’s entertainment lawyer, Dave, sent multiple emails to each other — planning a conference call with a well-known interventionist, named Earl Hightower.
Then on Oct. 18th (the day before the intervention) Michael sent an email to Evan … revealing a plan to confront LiLo at her Bev Hills home.
According to text messages from Oct 19th, which we have also seen, the group decided Michael would confront LiLo FIRST … and everyone else would show up afterwards.
TMZ broke the story … the emergency intervention floundered — Michael showed up to Lindsay’s pad, but she turned him away and called the cops … which put a kabosh on the whole thing.
The latest is Michael Lohan is reportedly seeking a conservatorship for Lindsay.
Michael has told an attorney, his daughter is in the danger zone … a substance abuser, he says, who is hanging with the wrong group of people, including Dina Lohan.
Michael will meet with lawyers early this week, and there’s one thing he does want — he will NOT become Lindsay’s conservator, because he doesn’t want to run her finances so people will pass it off as a money grab. We’re told Michael wants the judge to decide who to appoint conservator, but he says it CAN’T be Dina.
Michael told the lawyer the first thing he will do if there’s a conservatorship is convince the conservator to send Lindsay to rehab, without the influence of the other people in her life. Michael says every time Lindsay has been to rehab — including at Cirque Lodge and Betty Ford — “She went in dirty and didn’t come out clean,” and he blames it on the people in her life who helped fuel her addiction.
Michael also told the lawyer he wants the conservator to somehow convince Dina that they need family therapy. He says Dina has always refused it in the past, and it has been a big stumbling block in Lindsay’s recovery.
WHAT A MESS!
