Lindsay Lohan is reportedly telling friends she will stay sober while attending the famously drug fueled Coachella music festival this weekend, but her dad, Michael Lohan, is not convinced. "It's one of the worst ideas she could have ever had," he told TMZ, "What did the courts say? Stay away from people or places where there might be drugs or alcohol!" Lohan reportedly told friends she is simply going to "enjoy the music" as she does each year. But the sources claim the rehab-bound actress is still using drugs and alcohol, while denying she has a problem. Lohan is set to begin her 90-day stint of court ordered rehab on May 2, when she checks into the Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach, New York. Incidentally, it's the same place her father attempted to kick his addictions to booze and alcohol in 1989. But even though he has high praise for the facility, he does not think his daughter will not succeed in her bid to get better. "Honestly, I hope so, but I don't think so," he said. His comments come as he is reportedly trying to get Lindsay and her mother Dina to join him for family therapy. Michael Lohan also claimed that Seafield's no-smoking policy could make it even more difficult for his daughter to get clean. "It's hard that you have to quit a number of addictions. She's battling with pills and cocaine. Imagine someone coming off cigarettes too," he said, "Not to mention she had to detox when she first gets in and that's really tough."
