Lindsay to spend the week with her dad

Lindsay Lohan's father is heading to Utah next week to spend five days of "quality time" with his troubled daughter - a visit he hopes will help in her battle to stay clean and sober. "We've still got a lot of catching up to do," said Michael Lohan, who reunited with the Mean Girls starlet for two days at the Cirque Lodge earlier this month after a two-year estrangement. This time, Michael will take his daughter from the facility to a remote, undisclosed location in Utah as part of out-patient therapy. "I'm looking forward to spending the next week with her," he said. "We've been in constant phone contact. She's in a great, great place now. I've never heard her so honest, contrite and focused. Lindsay is weeding out all the bad. She's taking a step back and reevaluating her life. What she tells - her honesty and openness - has brought me to tears. It's beyond words how proud I am of her," Lohan Sr. said. Sources says Michael and Lindsay wanted next week's visit and counselors gave their blessing. "They believe Michael's the best person for Lindsay to be with now," one insider revealed. "Not only is he her dad - someone with her best interests at heart - but he's also someone who successfully turned his life around after battling substance abuse." Unlike her mother, Lindsay's dad is not involved in her career.
