Lindsay's parents are idiots

Lindsay Lohan's bodyguard from 2002-2005, Tony Almeida, has stepped forward to say that Lindsay's parents are pretty much the entire reason he life is such a train wreck now. He says they let her do whatever she wanted from a very young age - including sex and drugs - as long as she kept working because her paychecks kept them living it large. Page Six says:

Almeida says, "From a young age, she dealt with her father's physical, emotional and drug abuses as well as her mother's drinking." 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."

By age 18, Lindsay had moved on to harder substances. Almeida recalls walking in on her and another celebrity in a closet at a club one night as they sniffed white powder. The ex-bodyguard also claims Lindsay cried out for help for years by cutting herself and threatening suicide.

This is insane, I'm beginning to think Hilter's rotting corpse would be a better parent then Dina Lohan ever would be. I saw a documentary once about a kid who was raised by wild wolves, the dude couldn't talk and pooped on the floor - but he was a billion times more well-adjust that anything that's coming out of the Lohan machine.
