Embattled actress Lindsay Lohan allegedly lives in fear of just how far her father is willing to go to save her.
It seems Michael Lohan was inspired by the turnaround Britney Spears experienced under her father’s conservatorship and hoped a similar arrangement could work for his own daughter. But the senior Lohan may have taken his concern a step too far when he offered to act the part of a well-intentioned abductor if the courts wouldn’t cooperate.
“If I can’t get a conservatorship, then I’m going to take her to an undisclosed location and get her straight,” Michael Lohan told X17Online. “But I know I’m going to get charged with kidnapping.”
Not if Lindsay Lohan gets her way. According to Radar Online, LiLo plans to file a restraining order to keep her estranged dad far outside of kidnapping range.
When notified of his daughter’s intention, Michael Lohan simply passed the blame to frequent feuding partner, ex-wife Dina Lohan.
“Dina is the one that told her to get a restraining order,” Michael Lohan said. “But you know what? I’m still going to try to do everything with the courts to try and get Lindsay better.”
Mel Gibson’s bad behavior sent his son packing
Determined to restrict the bad behavior to the previous generation, Mel Gibson’s son William Gibson decided to leave his father’s tabloid-worthy scandals behind and live the life of a missionary in Africa.
That madness includes the actor-director’s decision to leave William Gibson’s mother, Robyn Gibson, and start a family with wannabe music star Oksana Grigorieva.
“(Will’s) appalled by the way Mel handled all his personal affairs — the divorce, the Russian mistress, her pregnancy and the humiliation of his mom. It was just too much for him,” the insider revealed.
Dish on the fly
Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings Having already voiced his displeasure about becoming a pop culture fixture thanks to “Sex and the City,” stiletto-of-the-stars designer Manolo Blahnik decided to alienate a few of his famous-for-being-famous fans. “I hate celebrities,” Blahnik admitted to Vogue U.K. “All those pointless girls — I won’t name names, but you know who I mean. They are ‘famous.’ Ridiculous. I like women with style: actresses like Uma Thurman, icons like Audrey Hepburn. I like women with style to wear my shoes.” … While she’s seemingly moved on with Brazilian boy toy Jesus Luz, Madonna may not be finished with ex-husband Guy Ritchie. According to Britain’s The People, the couple’s post-divorce separation has brought them closer together. “The truth is both Guy and Madonna are becoming more and more open in their admissions that in many ways they regret getting divorced,” a source explained. “It’s one of those rare situations where couples start to get on better once their marriage is over.”
