Michael Lohan has spoken out about seeking conservatorship of his troubled daughter's estate.

Lindsay Lohan's estranged father has spoken to Now Magazine, saying "Lindsay's life is out of control. She's living at friends' places, not working and has no-one good standing by her".

"I'd raise the motion of a conservatorship but I don't want control of her money - are you kidding? I'd want the court to appoint the appropriate people."

Lohan is currently in Brazil promoting a clothing line but has been pictured in bizzare situations. The actress appeared in court last week and was charged with a 90-day stint in rehab after lying to prosecutors about violating her probation for a jewellery theft case from 2011.

Michael adds: "What the judge has done with an order for 90 days in lockdown is a good thing - Lindsay needs to get her life back on track. The problem is, they gave her until May 2 to find a place".

"They should've put her in a facility immediately. Lindsay needs daily therapy to address her problems. She needs to be given the chance to get better under supervision.

"I won't stop shouting for my daughter to get help. If you want to save her life, put her in rehab now. If she doesn't go, the consequences are unthinkable."
