Michael Lohan Leaks Another Phone Call

In what’s quickly becoming the Watergate scandal of the celebrity-gossip world, Michael Lohan has leaked yet another recorded telephone conversation to Radar Online, in hopes of getting his party-girl daughter Lindsay Lohan to seek treatment for what he believes is a prescription-pill addiction.

Yesterday, a phone call between Papa Lo and Lindsay, in which Lindsay seemed on the verge of an emotional collapse, was published on the site.

Today, it’s a September 2008 phone call between Michael and Lindsay’s mother Dina, who describes a failed attempt to get LiLo into rehab.

As Dina recounts in the conversation,

“You don’t even know what I’d go through trying to get her into, like, rehab and stuff. She’d like, punch me in the face, kick me out of the car…like you don’t know the (expletive) I went through trying to get her an intervention by myself.  It was very difficult.”

Well, to be fair, Lindsay is far from the only person who’s wanted to punch Dina Lohan in the face.

During the conversation, Ma Lohan also laments the fact that Lindsay moved to Hollywood at a young age, a move that Dina characterizes as damaging:

“She’s really sad and really hurt and really…despondent. I told her not to go to L.A. at 18…she did. I couldn’t leave these other three (Dina’s three other kids with Michael) to go get her and it was, like, a mess.”

A mess, indeed. And one that seems to keep growing.
