Lindsay Lohan, who we learned last week is facing the threat of jail-time at an upcoming court hearing here in SoCal at the end of this month, made her way to NYC so that she could spend some time with her beloved mother Dina. And what, pray tell, did the ladies get up to as they hung out together in the city? Well, they made a beeline to the closest hot dog vendor so that they could sup on a couple of wieners:
Now that’s mother/daughter bonding, y’all. It should also be mentioned that Lindsay reportedly agreed to be filmed with her mother for a Mother’s Day special for E!. But, while happy days seem to be here again for L. Lo and Dina, all is truly not well on the family front. Daddy Michael Lohan is planning a new attempt to get his daughter under court-ordered conservatorship … and his hope is to strike in the next few weeks. Want to know what plans he’s got up his sleeve? Read on after hte jump …
TMZ has learned Michael Lohan will be back in L.A. Monday … and he’s telling people he’ll start the legal ball rolling to create a conservatorship for Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay is in NYC but refuses to see MIchael … and daddy Lohan says it’s now time. As for a possible conservatorship, Lohan is telling people he’d gladly serve as the conservator but is open to someone else assuming that role. Michael Lohan also says he does not want his daughter to go to jail. As TMZ first reported, Lohan is on the fast track for a jail cell because she has squarely violated the terms of her probation. A court day of May 20 looms for Lindsay. Michael wants Lindsay in rehab but not a traditional, group facility. He wants to go the Brooke Mueller route — a private home with lots of doctors. What Michael isn’t factoring in — that type of rehab is bocu expensive and Lindsay is broke.
Does Lindsay Lohan need help? Yes. Does she need this kind of help from her estranged father? Hell no. Will a happy medium be met … highly unlikely. I don’t believe that Daddy Lohan will be successful in his bid to win control of his daughter … but it would be nice if she got some kind of help to just normalize her life for a while. This mess has been playing out in the public eye for years, it will continue to play out. Who will win in the end? Lord knows … but we may soon find out.
