"It's all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again. It's sad and I hope he stops masquerading as her father in public and starts acting like one in private."
But according to emails received by TMZ, the intervention was sanctioned by Lindsay's team of handlers: Evan Hainey (her manager), Dave Feldman (her entertainment lawyer) and Shawn Holley (her very busy criminal-defense lawyer).
The emailing started on Sept. 23, when Michael emailed Holley over concerns that Lindsay was "drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day" and possibly doing cocaine.
"She is AGAIN, taking pills to keep her up and to sleep (adderall)!! I even know that she is and was drinking during work as far back as Liz and Dick!" he went on.
"I am asking you to PLEASE PLEASE find a way to get her to LA toward the end of the first week of October or the beginning of the second so we can do an intervention and FINALLY end this madness!" he pleaded.
Hainey responded, "I am hearing the same things."
Holley responded, "Let's do it."
But at least according to this story, Dina is the Lohan parent who's out of the loop.

* Sting has moved the location
of his "Back to Bass Tour" concert in the Philippines following a petition by environmentalists who said the original venue is owned by a conglomerate that plans to uproot 182 trees for a parking lot and mall expansion in a northern mountain city.
The SM Mall of Asia Arena said on Saturday that changing the site of the Dec. 9 concert was "the decision of the artist himself."
"Understandably, the known environment advocate artist was left with no choice in spite of the SM representatives' appeal," it said in a statement.
That's honest. Hey, we tried to talk him out of it, but we're not an environmentally sound company.
SM Prime Holdings, which operates SM malls and the arena on Manila Bay, is owned by the Philippines' richest man, 88-year-old mall mogul Henry Sy, who's worth around $9 billion.
Environmentalists said in their
petition that as a champion of the environment, "Sting can't be saving rainforests and enabling SM to rape the environment at the same time!"
