Michael Lohan makes statement that he'll no longer make statements

It appears there are a few things Michael Lohan needed to get off his chest.

As news about his daughter Lindsay’s return to rehab spread at the end of September, Michael Lohan was open about his intent to find two conservators for his daughter to keep watch over her finances and her social life, saying, "I just want Lindsay's life and career to be guided by people who are in it with their hearts, not their hands.”

However, a few weeks later, Michael now says that he’ll be keeping mum on anything to do with his daughter or his ex-wife, Dina.

In a  statement to CNN, Lohan explained the following:

"After serious thought and conversation last night, with someone who means alot [sic]to me. I am making this statement and fully intend on living by it.

With all due respect to those who have both gotten on my nerves for reporting things that weren't true, ( as well as things that were), I want to make a public statement that I will not be commenting on ANYTHING relating to my daughter Lindsay, or ANYTHING my ex wife Dina, or any 'sources' related to her, might say."

"After all the things said and the incidents which have transpired, I realize that no matter how wrong or right I may have been, at the end of the day, I was wrong for offending my ex wife and my children. Because of the spotlight and scrutiny we have been under, as well as my own "pride," which has caused pain to my mother, (deceased father), brother, sisters and their sibling[s], I realize how my statements and actions have had a ripple effect on all of them. If it was me alone, it would be one thing, but I'm not. The things I have said and done, have cased hurt , pain and embarrassment for all of them.

That being said, I make this statement in humble supplication. And NO MATTER what accusations, lies or conjecture are disseminated to the public, about me, for the sake of the ones I love and with hope of creating peace, I WILL NOT respond , in ANY way, to what is said or done, to me.

MY family's health and well being matters too much.

For the sake of those I offended, I apologize and ask their forgiveness. But even if they can't find it in their heart to forgive, like I forgive them. I KNOW that God will have the last word and defend me in His own way.

So please refrain from from calling or contacting me."

    It seems that all them white girls spears.hilton.lohan and so on always escape haerd times for their crimes or addiction. YET lil kim. Lil wayne. Ti. Bobby brown and so on always get hard times. Ans this is major discrimination. This is not okay at all. Our society is cruel and things need to be changed. We all equal.

    Here's a reality check for you Mr. Lohan, the so called public scrutiny is speak about, you sought it and got it. You are so caught up in being a wanna be insider that you and that flake of an ex wife have ridden on your daughters coat tails long enough. Both of you should be ashamed of yourselves, Mr. Lohan needs to fade off into the wood work, Dina needs to stop acting life Lindsay's bff, stop pretending to be her manager, and just be her mother. Lindsay is clearly a lost soul in need of direction, not a drinking buddy and an enabler. Addiction clearly runs in this family an if this young woman is going to over come her personal addictions she needs support from her family not the denials, excuses and pandering for the press. Lindsay needs to admit she has a problem and really deal with it, not pretend to in order to avoid jail time, only when she finally and truthfully admits she has a problem, will she be able to put her heart and soul into getting better. Once she has taken that step, if she is going to really succeed for the long haul, Lindsay needs to get rid of the hanger ons and enablers that pretended to be her friends. True friends would never have encouraged her to continue down the self destructive path she has been on. The ones that tried to help her, I'm sure she pushed away, those Lindsay are your true friends.

    Oh Right . . . . Michael is responsible for everyihing that's happening to poor Lindsey. It doesn't matter a damn what people say or don't say. At the end of the day, Lindsey Lohan is irresponsible as hell and couldn't care less about how her actions affect the lives of others. If she wants to do drugs, then she needs to get the hell out of Hollywood and off our television screens and just go do it. I'm sick and tired of watching her go back and forth to rehab. She doesn't give a damn about herself and has no respect for others. That's not the kind of personality I want my kids being exposed to.

    Glad he's fainlly going to STFU. I bet it doesn't last. I do agree with him though that Lindsey needs someone other than her mother to control her money. The old lady is only in it to milk Lindsey for all she can. LINDSEY'S MOM IS THE MAIN REASON LINDSEY IS IN TROUBLE! The courts need to ban any contact between Lindsey and her mother, maybe then Lindsey could get her life back on track.

    It seems that a lot of respondents to this article are perfect and live in glass houses. Mr. Lohan is a father; I am a father as was my dad. When I was young and experimenting with drugs and other bad behavours, my dad told me that I would be welcome back into the family as soon as I straightened out my life. I wasn't allowed in the family home if I was stoned or drunk. It took 10 years until the desire to have a family outweighed the need to get high. I applaud Mr. Lohan and his taking a stand with Lindsay. It's called love. Thy it sometime; it will change your life!

    Michael Lohan is a real winner! Actually, the entire family. Lindsay would never have these issues if her parents had raised her the proper way. They've been a train wreck waiting to happen as witnessed by me when Lindsay, her mom and brother were in the NYC Ritz on Xmas when her underage brother passed a fake id in order to get a beer. His mom backed him up. At the time he was 18. This family is a bunch of losers and need intensive counseling.

    It's about time he shuts his mouth–my guess it's because of a court order. She is an adult. A father who goes to the press to air his "concerns" about his daughter (who already has no private life) and then seeks conservatorship for her money–and her social life? - is not thinking in her best interests. Lindsay Lohan may be having a hard time right now but I haven't seen any evidence that this absentee father has ever had her best interests in mind.

    I hope he actually will do what he said. First, he responded to situations in his own way, he is human. Second, we all live and learn. I see nothing wrong with him making a public apology and statement that he will no longer be speaking out on his personal situations with his family. It needed to be done. He made comments publicly so I think it is very appropriate that he make a public apology. Now if only he will do what he has stated he will, then I think his family can begin to heal.

    This guy shoud've shut up a long time ago all he is interested is in Lindsay's money what ever is left of it. He want to do the same thing that Brittany Spears' father did. But as for "Big Mikie" that's not going to happen. Lindsay is not going to "Show him the Money" neither is mommie going to be "Shown the Money". If Lindsay were smart she would tell "Daddy" to take a "Hike" and get a job the same goes for mommie. Lindsay should tell all of her hanger on friends to take a hike and get a jobl. As for Big Mikie he should leave town change his name and move to another country. Lindsay would be a lot beeter off the same goes for mommie.

      come on, welcome to the internet, this is how things work. We blast any perceived insincerity, the fact that he released a statement that he would no longer release statements is asinine. On a side note the self-righteousness in the last paragraph is disusting.
      "even if they can't find it in their heart to forgive, like I forgive them. I KNOW that God will have the last word and defend me in His own way." He is pretty much saying that he doesnt care what anyone thinks because "God" agrees completely with his opinion and will defend him. Come on, wake up and smell the BS

    Well, he probably sought out a judge who would support the set up of a conservatorship and found out he was SOL. Unless she was mentally incapacitated (and drug addiction is probably not it) then he would have no grounds to do so. It is a business decision on her part as to who she hires and fires to manage her career and her finances even while in rehab or jail. And quite possibly he was told shut-up already or we will cut you off entirely.

    These Hollywood kids rarely stand a chance with parents like these.
