Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan's father has vowed to get her professional treatment.

The 26-year-old actress's concerned father Michael claims he is willing to do anything to get her to return to rehab for a fifth time so she can get her life back on track and will even pay for her to be treated amid speculation she is too broke to pay for help herself.

He told gossip website "If people would stop taking her money she wouldn't have an issue. Regardless, the cost of rehab has been taken care of if she wants or agrees to go in!

"I believe she wants it, now the ball is in her court!" he says. "I will arrange for the right treatment and programme, for as long as it takes, which is six months or more!

"Her attorney, David Feldman, with the help of world renowned interventionist, Earl Hightower, has arranged for treatment as well, along with Dr Drew Pinsky's long term commitment to do the same!

"Either I will get her attention or God will! As it's said, I will cry out from the mountain tops until I am heard!"

Rock bottom

The Liz & Dick star - who recently had her probation revoked after it was claimed she lied to police over a car accident in June - allegedly isn't concerned about her looming court hearing next month because she believes she hasn't done anything wrong.

An insider suggested that the actress is so confident she will be vindicated that she isn't planning to change her behaviour before the hearing on 25 January.

Lindsay was previously said to have agreed she had hit rock bottom and needed professional help but claimed she doesn't have the money to hire a psychiatrist as she is currently in debt.
