Lindsay Lohan's mother Dina has admitted she has placed a ''protective team'' around her daughter, but refused to say how they are helping the troubled star
Lindsay Lohan's mother Dina has a protective "team" surrounding her daughter.
Dina admits she is worried about her daughter's lifestyle but has criticised her ex-husband Michael Lohan - who has repeatedly claimed the actress needs professional help for prescription drug addiction - for going public with her problems.
Dina blasted: "I don't really listen to what Michael says. I have a team behind Lindsay. I'm certainly not going to tell you or the public what I'm doing but I definitely don't sit idle and do nothing. We have a tight inner circle and we keep things private as a family."
Dina - who also has three other children, Michael Douglas, 22, Ali, 16 and Dakota, 13, with Michael - also blasted her former spouse's poor parenting skills and urged him to stay silent to stop hurting his family.
She added to America's OK! magazine: "Michael has no relationship with his children. He has no visitation. My daughter Ali has a block on her phone, my little one doesn't talk to him, my older son Michael is in college and doesn't talk to him and Lindsay has no relationship with him. He has hurt them deeply by what he's done publicly and it breaks my heart.
"I can't make him be a better father, but I want him to stop hurting Lindsay publicly. He needs to focus on his three other children and take care of them. It's time for him to be quiet for while."
This week Michael announced he had got engaged to girlfriend Kate Major and Dina also attacked his plans for a lavish wedding, insisting he should use his money for their children.
She said: "Where he's finding money for engagement rings and weddings I don't know. He's nine months behind in his child support. I wish him the best, but pay for the kids you already have."
