Lindsay Lohan’s parents are to blame

Superficial / August 9, 2007

Lindsay Lohan’s former bodyguard, Tony Almeida, is speaking out, saying Lindsay’s ridiculous behavior was the cause of neglectful and abusive parents who saw her as a source of money. Page Six reports:

Once, when Lindsay was 16, Michael flew into a rage while driving and “slammed on the brakes and dragged her out of the car, pushed her up against the hood, screamed at her and called her a slut. This was on the Long Island Expressway! I got in the middle of it and pulled him off.”

Meanwhile, Dina often “let her do whatever she wanted, just to keep her happy and working . . . [At her 16th birthday party] Lindsay drank whatever she wanted – I saw her drinking beer and mixed drinks with my own eyes [without Dina’s intervention].”

As Lindsay’s manager, Dina – who was desperate to become a star herself – received 10 percent of her income. “Lindsay was the family cash cow – and she resented it,” Almeida claims. “They counted on her to pay their bills . . . I saw Lindsay exhausted, begging her mother for some time off.”

Young Lindsay’s parents looked the other way as she began a life of boozing, boys and drugs. When she was 15, they allowed her to share a room with her then-14-year-old boyfriend, Aaron Carter, at Loews in Miami Beach. Almeida relates, “They knew Lindsay was sleeping in Aaron’s room. But they seemed happy she had chosen somebody who could benefit her singing career.”

It’s nice of him to share, but everybody already knows what kind of clowns Lindsay Lohan’s parents are. I could randomly buy better parents for Lindsay from a pet store. That dog in the corner trying to eat its own poo? Ten times the mother Dina Lohan will ever be.
