Lindsay's Ex Bodyguard Blames Dina and Michael

Lindsay's Ex Bodyguard Blames Dina and Michael

Remember when Lindsay Lohan's bodyguard tried to sell her out while she was in rehab? Well, it's happening again, except this time it's a different guy, and this time it's Lindsay's parents who are being exposed.

Tony Almeida was Lindsay's bodyguard from 2002-2005 and he decided to give an exclusive interview to InTouch recapping all the reasons why Lindsay's downward spiral is entirely the fault of her abusive parents. Almeida recalls in detail stories including Michael Lohan grabbing Lindsay and calling her slut, and Dina allowing a teenage Lindsay to drink, do drugs, and spend the night with boys. He also alleges that the stories of Lindsay cutting herself and attempting suicide are true and were a cry for help against her parents who were simply using her as their cash cow.

The last bodyguard who spoke out turned out to be more of a liar, but these serious allegations don't sound that far-fetched. That being said, if these claims are true, we can only hope that Lindsay will get the help she needs and that Dina and Michael will start thinking about how they can help their daughter stay healthy, rather than keep milking her for all she's worth.

Dina Lohan has an IMDB profile. Now that is just fucked up. No wonder LL doesn't have the strength to overcome all the obstacles in her life.

The stories from the bodyguard don't sound farfetched about what life was like in the Lohan family, however, at this point, Lindsay needs to take responsibility for herself and her actions.

Why do they always blame everyone else for their won faults? This is a grown woman that can move to any state to get away from her parents. Or she can tell them not to come over. But now when she needs too blame her lifestyle on them, then she will, and also probably getting this bodyguard to blame her parents just the same. Although it does seem apparent now, that all of those family members have some type of mental issue. But still they didn’t push her in the car drunk and demand that she drive.

This wouldn't shock me at all. Her parents enabled her behaviour and may have fuelled it, but she also loves the attention and the celebrity and getting away with dangerous things etc.

Nya - kudo's for your comments on this thread! You're posts were far more interesting than anything about Lindsay's poor life. We all have the ability to rise above any of the garbage that's been thrown our way in life - you can chose to blame or chose to rise above. Lindsay has wasted her life away on her own accord.

As much as I don't like Dina,Lindsey made her own decisions.She could leave Hollywood and true to live a normal life but she loves the attention.She has said herself she doesn't know what she would do if her name wasn't in the papers anymore.She feeds off the attention she gets.She is not a little girl.She is a grown woman.

Ok. My childhood was beyond F*CKED UP. I mean INSANE to the point where I don't talk about it cuz its too much for people to swallow. There comes a point in time where you can tell you family to f*ck off and this precisely what LL needs to do. She needs to get better and start her OWN life and tell Dina to blow it out her a**. If you ever want to OVERCOME you need to take matters into your own hands, if you want to become a statistic then you can take the path LL is on. At the end of the day your childhood, if timultuous can f*ck you up beyond belief but at the same time you should strive to be the opposite of what you know. Especially when all you know is negative and bad for your mind, body and soul. LL needs to clean house and move somewhere that she can be alone and grow without the pressures of her family and the media. If she doesn't get it together she is going to die and you can blame it on her parents all you want but she is grown and should clear her head up so she can make proper decisions. She should just forget Hollyweird and LA LA Land and just move on, shes not all that talented anyway, show biz already used and abused her and spit her out.

You know what they say...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Her parents sound like nut cases, too.

lindsay definitely needs to take some responsibility for her actions and get her a** heading back in the right direction. but, her parents need to support her and encourage her to get back on the right track rather than talking to the media outlets and making excuses for her. if she doesn't whip back into shape fast...gravy train is gonna end for mom and'd think they'd want to take an interest in that!!!

Bummer, this actually makes me wish I could help her. She should know better though, she is an adult and she is in the public eye.

As long as there is someone else to blame.... She's an adult and should take full responsibility for her actions.

Hasnt everyone been saying this all along? Micheal and Dina are probably the worst parents ever. Id say Micheal may have a one up on Dina, but thats only because he stays away from Lindsay (even if not by choice). Im not so much worried about Lindsay because shes already crashed and burned, hopefully she can pull it back together. But im really worried about the other kids. I mean, we've already seen her sister prancing around in little shorts, in full hair and makeup, and shes what? 13? Not only that, but has anyone else noticed how skinny that girl is? Im surprised no one has been commenting on that, yes shes young, but she is nothing more than skin and bones. Where are these kids grandparents? Or anyone who doesnt just see them as money making opertunities?

It's very sad when parent (or anyone) tries to reach fame status through a loved one. If Lindsay didn't have any form of talent back in the day, would anyone even know (or care about) Dina, Michael, or Alli? Shame on her parents for allowing that kind of lifestyle to be lived and shame on her for chosing that lifestyle.

I think there is an orgainzation that tries to protect child stars from their parents. I might be wrong, but I think it was started by the girl who played "Curly Sue". I saw it on an E! True Hollywood story, so I don't know how active the organization is or if they are actually making a difference.
