Lindsay Lohan vs. Her Father: Is A Conservatorship Really Necessary?

Lindsay Lohan's October is just going from bad to worse as her father attempts to stage an intervention, attempting to have her put in the control of a conservatorship.

A conservatorship is a legal term for passing over one's legal power to someone else, when deemed unfit to control oneself. Britney Spears famously is currently under a conservatorship, headed by her lawyer, father and fiancée, after her infamous mental and emotional breakdown a few years ago. Lindsay's father, Michael Lohan, decided that after last week's domestic incident with her mother (Dina), in which police were called to a fight between the mother and daughter, and Lindsay accused Dina of taking cocaine, it was the right time to intervene. He accused Lindsay of being "substance abuser... who is hanging with the wrong group of people, including [her mother]." and cited these as reasons for the intervention that he attempted, and failed, this weekend (20th/21st Oct 2012).

According to TMZ, although Michael thinks the conservatorship is necessary, he isn't willing to step up into that responsibility. Lindsay's siblings also reportedly claimed that the entire thing was a publicity stunt by Michael. This claim is backed up by Lindsays publicist who told Entertainment Weekly: "It's apparent Michael continues to be very focused on getting publicity for himself, Lindsay's team is in no way aligned with him or his actions." We have to wonder, therefore, if her own father doesn't approve of his daughter spending time with her own mother, while her father is unwilling to take responsibility for her, and indeed use her for publicity- where is the young star supposed to turn in times of need? And, more importantly, from whom is she supposed to learn those perpetually important moral lessons? We don't deem a conservatorship to be needed at all, but some good parenting certainly wouldn't go amiss. Where's Supernanny when you need her?

Lindsay is currently promoting 'Liz & Dick' and is working on Bret Easton Ellis's 'The Canyons. She will have the opportunity to address all this and more when Barbra Walters interviews her next month.
