The other week, Lindsay Lohan disowned her father Michael, got into a fight in the back of a limo with her mother Dina, and declared her intent to vote for Mitt Romney. Things haven't quieted down since. After the writer Bret Easton Ellis called her out on Twitter for skipping work on her latest flick The Canyons, Father of the Year Michael attempted to stage an intervention at LiLo's home with her entire management team last Friday. "[She's surrounded by] a bunch of alcoholics and drug addicts," Michael Lohan told reporters outside Chez LiLo. He claims to have seen prescription pills, empty alcohol bottles and cocaine in his daughter's hotel room, and that sources close to Lindsay have told him she's drinking anywhere from a bottle to a bottle and a half of vodka per day. His intervention attempt was unsuccessful: a man claiming to be LiLo's boyfriend shooed him away and told the cops he was trespassing, saying that any problems LiLo has will not be solved by her father.

Michael Lohan is now apparently gunning for a conservatorship that will have someone (but not him) control LiLo's finances—similar to the one Britney Spears has. But he won't have it all his own way: his daughter remains adamant that she hasn't relapsed. Not only that, but she now wants an order of protection against her dad. LiLo has reportedly flown to New York to meet with the rest of her family and figure out how to proceed. Her siblings also say they want nothing to do with Michael. Dina Lohan has also been pushing for an order of protection: "It's all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again. It's sad and I hope he stops masquerading as her father in public and starts acting like one in private," she says. Of course, this come's from the woman who allegedly attacked Lindsay less than two weeks ago. Perhaps orders of protection all round might be a good idea.
