Michael Lohan seeks conservatorship over his daughter
The 50 year old - who is estranged from Lindsay following a number of public spats with her and her mother Dina - intends to petition for a conservatorship order, giving him control over the 24-year-old actress` personal and professional affairs.
He said: "Since Dina and manager Lou Taylor are going to try and be co-conservators, I had a choice of fighting it or petitioning for the purpose of appointing two conservators who don`t have an interest in Lindsay`s money but rather her as a person and a human being.
"Dina and Lou have their hands in it, not their hearts."
Earlier this week, Michael hit out at "disturbing" reports Dina and Lou were planning to get a court ordered conservatorship "without her knowing".
He said: "I`ve learned of a plot to put Lindsay under a conservatorship. It`s disturbing, the co-conservators would be Dina and Lindsay`s business manager, Lou Taylor.
"Lou and Dina are trying to get her out of the picture so they can get a conservatorship without her knowing.
"They would control literally everything Lindsay does, what projects she has coming up, her finances and the people she sees-and that includes keeping me out of her life."
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed Lindsay has entered rehab - for the fifth time - in Orange County, California.
A source said: "She is with us for the time being. We expect her to stay for the full 90 days, however, she could bounce because there is no court order to ensure she has to stay."
Lindsay failed two drugs test earlier this month following a stint in prison and rehab - where she was sent after violating the terms of her probation for a 2007 driving under the influence (DUI) conviction - and was subsequently sentenced to four weeks in jail last Friday (24.09.10).
However, the ruling was overturned within a day and the `Machete` star was released after posting $300,000 bail.
Lindsay is due back in court for a probation hearing on October 22.
