Michael Lohan: Lindsay's Problems Are A Result Of My Divorce From Dina Lohan

Michael Lohan Blames Lindsay's Problems On His Divorce

Lindsay Lohan sat down for a post-rehab interview with Oprah on Sunday and opened up about her struggles with addiction.

And although she never blamed her troubles with substance abuse on her parents, her dad Michael Lohan spoke to Life & Style on Wednesday and admitted that his tumultuous divorce from Dina Lohan is really at fault.

“I don’t think she should have taken any of the blame for what happened to her,” he said. “It’s my fault and Dina's fault. We put her in the middle of the divorce. Now it’s up to me and Dina to make this better."

Dina and Michael, who married in 1985, settled their divorce in 2007. The divorce played out in public while Lindsay was still at the height of her career.

Michael went on to say that helping Lindsay through rehab has brought the whole family closer together.

“The healing in our family has really helped a lot,” Michael said. “We really came together in helping her.”
