London, Jan 01 (Agencies): Michael Lohan has urged ex-wife and television personality Dina to resolve the differences between them for the sake of their daughter Lindsay's sobriety, who is in a rehabilitation centre.

"I am getting in touch with Lindsay's team, including Tom Hansen, Blair Berk, Lou Taylor and Shawn Chapman Holley, in the hope of trying again, to have them to persuade Dina to sit down so that we can iron out our differences," quoted Michael as saying.

"Quite frankly, everyone knows this, including all the counsellors and therapists - Dina and I need to get along and put our differences aside, if Lindsay has to have any chance of full recovery without relapse."

Michael has urged Dina - who repeatedly accused him of failing to pay support to their children, Ali, 17, and Cody, 14 - to forget about their previous problems and put their family first by staying civil to one another.

"Everyone has been asking Dina to sort out her issues with me, but the general consensus is that she simply can't admit or take responsibility and she is afraid to do so," he said.

"But that isn't even part of it, she doesn't have to admit anything. All she has to do is keep Lindsay and the kids out of our differences and try to get along for their sake.

"She can make all the claims she likes about child support later but there is a much deeper and important issue here, Lindsay's health that is first and foremost. Our kids are first and we should be second," he added.
