I’m not sure why I’m obsessed with Lindsay Lohan and her father Michael. Admittedly, Lindsay’s ongoing downward spiral is more intriguing than some, in part because it seems to be a true never-ending story. It’s not a train-wreck, because, well, when you wreck a train, that’s it. It stops moving. Lindsay Lohan’s life keeps getting more and more tumultuous.
At the moment, Michael Lohan’s little daughter is in court-ordered rehab. Michael, according to published reports, visited her there. She hadn’t seen him in seven months, they say.
An unnamed eyewitness (spywitness?) described the tender scene thusly:
“Lindsay met him at Betty Ford and the pair spent hours together… it was not a fleeting encounter, this appeared well-planned in advance. It was an emotional reunion… there were hugs, kisses and even a few tears when Michael and Lindsay first saw each other.”
Big Daddy Michael Lohan said in a statement that he has “pledged not to comment about anything relating to my daughter.” He then went on to talk about his daughter, saying, “However, what I will say is that I am an incredibly proud father tonight. My daughter is progressing extraordinarily well.”
At least he said something nice. Right?
