I know he's annoying and a blabbermouth but he also seems to be the only person who wants her to get sober.
He's a lot more than "annoying", he's a born-again Christian homophobe who has wished AIDS and death on gay people. He doesn't give a shit about his daughter, he exploits her, just a few months ago he sold a taped phone call with her to TMZ. He says thing like he wants to get her into rehab just to remain connected to her in the media. He'll say or do anything to keep siphoning off her fame.
R1 is correct. He likes to stay in the press by claiming to be Lindsay's only hope, but he's just trying to use Lindsay to get rich and famous - always has.
She mistrusts him for good reasons, if only she could see through her horrible mother as easily.
What ever happened to her grandparents? Can't they step in!?
He also tweeted that she has HIV.
He's been arrested and served time for domestic violence. He's never paid a dime in child support and fathered a child out of wedlock and denied it until they finally got DNA out of him. He's never done anything to support his children and photo-ops are the only thing he's concerned about when it comes to Lindsey. He brought along TMZ when he went to do her "intervention". She still keeps interacting with him though. Why she maintains contact with her shitty father is beyond me. It would take years to sort out that family in therapy.
