LiLo's Insane Week: The Diary
Being "kidnapped" by her "cokehead" mother, disowning her father, and backing Mitt Romney for president: Can we summon any surprise?
Perpetually troubled Lindsay Lohan can cause controversy at such a pace that it's hard to keep up. After all, even when Amanda Bynes' high driving was rated a perfect 10 out of 10 for danger by the LAPD, people were only worried that she might become the next Lindsay Lohan. But even by her own stellar standards, LiLo has just had one crazy few days:
At 4 am Wednesday morning she frantically calls her father, Michael Lohan, and unleashes an agitated stream of consciousness that may only make sense if you've closely followed the LiLo canon: she's apparently being kidnapped by her mother, Dina Lohan (who is seemingly threatening to throw her out of the limo), due to a fight over $40,000 that LiLo lent to her. “Dad, she's on cocaine, she's like touching her neck and shit,” she can be heard saying, adding that her mother is “like the devil right now.”
On Thursday morning she tells TMZ that she takes back all the things she said in that phone call, that her mom wasn't on cocaine and that her dad betrayed her trust in sharing the call with TMZ: "He doesn't know what it means to be a father. He doesn't want to be a dad." The fight with her mother? No biggie: "Daughters have fights with their moms. It happens a lot. It's normal,” she says.
Then on Thursday night she of all things endorses Mitt Romney for president: “I think unemployment is very important for now, so as of now I think [my vote] is Mitt Romney.” Tantalizingly, her other reasons seem set to remain secret: "It's a long story, but you're going to have to wait for that." Maybe it's because her tweet at President Obama—requesting he "cut taxes for those who need it: middle-class families, small businesses" and "those that are listed on Forbes as 'millionaires'”—has yet to be obeyed. Or maybe she's just afraid of finding herself on the wrong end of another Republican's wrestling moves.
