From inside the courthouse, Michael tells X17online exclusively:

    "I think that Lindsay really needs her family by her side. If Dina can't put our differences aside, which caused this mess in the first place, then these problems are never going to end. Dina has to work with me and not against me. No matter what problems Dina has with me, she can't put the kids in the middle or alienate me from their lives."

When asked about Lindsay's situation, Michael adds, "We're praying for her."

Papa Lohan also recently commented specifically about the jewelry incident. Hear what he had to say ... after the jump.
