A few days ago TMZ and Perez Hilton posted a video snippet of Michael Lohan’s heartfelt plea to daughter Lindsay on “The Maury Show”. After which, the net was flooded with critics bashing him for using his daughter for publicity.
This is the segment and interview in its entirety. I am posting this so that you can see the context in which Michael Lohan’s plea came across. His reason for being on the show was to help us shed some light on the dangers of “Teen Prescription Drug Addiction” a trend that is affecting our youth at an extremely high rate.
I am not defending Michael here but I will say this, usually I am a very perceptive person. Although I was only around him for a short period of time while I was conducting the investigative report, he seemed to be a genuinely concerned father who was reaching out any way he could in desperation.
Michael Lohan spent time in prison during Lindsay’s childhood which may be why there’s a disconnect between them. I also learned that Michael is a recovering alcoholic and a drug counselor. He went to bible college and now he’s a minister.
