Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan's legal team backed her father Michael's recent attempt to stage an intervention.

The Liz & Dick actress's father confronted his 26-year-old daughter at her home in Beverly Hills on Friday because he fears she has resumed drinking and drug taking and is said to have had the full support of her lawyers and manager.

An email exchange reportedly took place between Michael, Lindsay's manager Evan Hainey and her lawyers Shawn Holley and Dave Feldman in the days leading up to the failed intervention that show they were in on his attempt to get the actress back into rehab, according to gossip website TMZ.

Michael is said to have emailed Evan and Shawn on 23 September pleading for their help and claimed his daughter was "drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day".

Restraining order

He also wrote: "I have seen the empty bottles and even cocaine in her room at Chateau (Marmont). She is AGAIN, taking pills to keep her up and to sleep (adderall)!! I even know that she is and was drinking during work as far back as Liz and Dick!

"I am asking you to PLEASE PLEASE find a way to get her to LA toward the end of the first week of October or the beginning of the second so we can do an intervention and FINALLY end this madness! (sic)"

Lindsay's manager Dave allegedly also emailed her lawyers and they all agreed Michael should lead the intervention last week because they knew the actress would be flying back to Los Angeles on 15 October.

Michael's intervention failed as Lindsay phoned the police on him and he claimed she also kicked out her boyfriend Josh Chunn who tried to reason with her.

She is now reportedly seeking a restraining order against her father to stop him from interfering in her life.
