Michael Lohan – who is estranged from his two daughters – admits he worries the 16 year old will end up being cared for by “Lindsay’s bimbo friends” when Lindsay Lohan starts her 90-day jail sentence on July 20.
Explaining his decision to fly to Los Angeles for the 24-year-old star’s court hearing last week, he said: “I don’t think that anyone thought that Lindsay was going to go to jail except for me. I came out here because I knew it was a very, very possible thing. And my concern, at that point, was if Lindsay went to jail and Ali was with her and she’s only 16, who is she going to be with? Lindsay’s bimbo friends? So I had to be there.”
Michael was so worried about the teenager – who shares a Hollywood apartment with Lindsay – he even telephoned police from court last Tuesday (06.07.10) after Lindsay was sentenced to jail, followed by 90 days in rehab, for violating the probation of her 2007 driving under the influence (DUI) charge. He explained in an interview with US TV show ‘Access Hollywood’: “I knew there was going to be an issue, so I went and called 911. I called the Beverly Hills Police Department. I said, listen, ‘I’m Michael Lohan; my daughter Lindsay is just getting sentenced to jail time; they might take her away and my 16 year old is going to be on her own. I’m her father and I don’t know the people she’s with… I want to take her with me and I’m afraid there’s going to be a problem.’ ”
Despite Lindsay’s impending sentence, it has emerged she could earn over $500,000 from her first interview about the case. A source said: "The irony is Lindsay is in demand. The bidding is over $500,000 for the rights to the pre-jail interview, the prison diary and the first chat when she is released.” However, the actress is confident her term inside will be reduced over the next few days and is visiting a psychic to help learn her fate. The source added to the New York Post newspaper: "Lindsay is still convinced she’ll get a reduced term – even if she has to go to rehab afterwards for longer. She has spoken to a number of lawyers over the weekend. She’s even seeing a psychic for guidance."
