Fresh off the launch of Ungaro’s disastrous clothing line which Lindsay supposedly had a hand in, Michael Lohan is speaking out about Lindsay’s addiction to prescription drugs and blaming them for Lindsay’s cracked out appearance. In an interview with Radar, Michael swears he’s going to get her off the pills. “I hate it when people talk about illegal drug abuse… because it’s not just drinking and illegal drugs that kill you. Prescription drugs can destroy and kill a person and are sometimes harder to stop. Look at Heath Ledger and Michael Jackson.”
Michael claims the drugs have taken over her life. Although he doesn’t say exactly what pills she’s popping, he does say that they’re the reason she’s not acting and not because she’s a screw-up with little talent.
“You know why Lindsay’s not acting in feature films right now? Because she can’t,” he said. “Because the girl with all the talent is hidden and buried deep inside this fungus that’s grown because of the prescription drugs. She can’t be herself. When you hug her she’s like, vacant inside. When she kisses or holds me I get chills, and not in a good way-in a bad way.”
“I don’t care what anyone says about Lindsay. The Lindsay Lohan I lived with when I was married was a focused, intelligent, gifted girl that needed no prescription medication, no assistance from a therapist. Whoever the people are that came into her life and convinced her otherwise should be thrown in jail, because they’re the same type of people who are responsible for the deaths of Heath Ledger, Michael Jackson and DJ AM,” Lohan said. “Everything was fine in our family until Dina and I got divorced. And that’s when all the kids’ lives started to unravel… including Lindsay’s.”
To be fair, DJ AM died from an overdose because he slipped back into a dangerous addiction he overcame because of the meds he had to take after surviving a plane crash that almost killed him and Travis Barker and left their bodies badly burned.
Also, to be fair, both Michael and Dina are responsible for Lindsay’s supposed addiction. A tiger and a hyena could take better care of her and all they’d be doing is fighting over who gets to eat her. You could have thrown Lindsay in a well and she would have come out better adjusted.
