Michael Lohan: My Son Is Being Used as a 'Pawn'
By Marc Schneider Posted Sep 30th 2010 12:12PM
This week, the usually quiet Michael Lohan Jr. emerged and spoke out against so-called "enablers" and "leeches" that have plagued his sister, Lindsay Lohan, and who have presumably made the star's recovery from drug addiction tougher. No scandal there, right? Wrong, as the college grad's father Michael Lohan is now lashing out (yes, again) at ex-wife Dina, accusing her of using their son as a "mouthpiece" and "pawn" for her "BS."
"Being that Dina has been gagged due to her constant lies to the press, media, public, courts and people in general, she is using a normally quiet and innocent person as her mouthpiece," Lohan tells PopEater in a fiery statement. "First, to spread her BS, and second as her new pawn."
Why is Lohan feeling bruised and not happy that his namesake is sticking up for Lindsay, currently in rehab? It could be because of something the younger Michael did NOT say.

The elder Michael also issues complaints that Dina is corrupting his son into shunning a life in business for an acting career.
"While my wonderful son studied as a straight-A business major in college -- and I got him offers from two Wall Street firms -- Dina now has been pitching a movie she is 'producing' with Michael as the starring role. Michael is the best person Dina has in her corner and she is even using him. Her own son! And it goes deeper! How sick is this."
This week, Michael also made the claim that Dina was conspiring to put their troubled daughter under a conservatorship, so he is considering filing a petition himself.
"It is being worked on and NO I will not be conservator but I will be damned if [manager] Lou Taylor or Dina are co-conservators," he told us. "I just want Lindsay's life and career to be guided by people who are in it with their hearts, NOT their hands."
With that comment, Michael makes it clear he believes his ex-wife is trying to manage their daughter's money and affairs, but he tells us she is no condition to do the job.
Speaking of leeches. How about Dina earning all her income from Lindsay? How about Dina's innocent mother "Nana," who Dina uses the money she gets from Lindsay to support? How about her ex-con brother Paul (who defrauded the 911 Victims fund for $1,000,000) and borrowed $50,000 from Dina but never paid it back? How about Dina's security "forces" paid for by Lindsay? And how about ME? Who never took or borrowed one cent from Lindsay? Instead, I gave Dina the house with over $1,000,000 in equity, [as well as] $250,000 to cover the expenses for three years. While Dina owes my family over $100,000 and landscapers, contractors, the pool company!"
