Lindsay Lohan has been warned not to seek a restraining order against her father Michael.
The actress - whose father is reportedly going to pursue a conservatorship to give an independent party legal control over Lindsay, 26, following a failed intervention last week - has been told that a protection order against him could further damage her career.
A source told RadarOnline: "Lindsay is being told by her lawyers that it's a disastrous idea for her to try and get a restraining order against her father, Michael Lohan. First of all, there is no guarantee that a judge would grant a restraining order against Michael. Michael did show up at her house and try and stage an intervention, because he believes that she is in immediate danger because of her alleged drug and alcohol addiction. That is hardly a form of
harassment. Secondly, if Lindsay were to petition for a restraining order, this story will just keep going, making it a never ending media cycle of stories about the Lohan family drama." Michael's intervention last Friday (19.10.12) had the full backing of Lindsay's professional team, including her lawyers and manager.
