Los Angeles, Aug 23 (IANS) Actress Lindsay Lohan's father Michael Lohan has taken the onus of his daughter's problems upon himself.

The father of the troubled star says he and his ex-wife, Dina, should take responsibility for the way she is because they divorced when she was young, reports

"I don't think she should have taken any of the blame for what happened to her," he told Life & Style magazine.

"It's my fault and Dina's fault. We put her in the middle of the divorce. Now it's up to me and Dina to make this better," Michael added.

Lindsay, 27, has had various legal woes, including jail stints, and most recently, she underwent a court ordered 90-day stint in a rehabilitation centre.

Former Wall Street trader Michael, 53, and Dina, 50, married in November 1985 and separated when Lindsay was three. Later, they reconciled.

The pair eventually split for good in January 2005 and their divorce was finalised in October 2007.

Michael, who has had his own problems with drug use and has been imprisoned earlier, has shared a strained relationship with Lindsay for years. Nevertheless, he has been helping her since she left rehab in July.

"The healing in our family has really helped a lot. We really came together in helping her," he added.
