Well this just makes us want to burst into tears and watch The Parent Trap over and over in mourning for the pair of adorable little wise-crackin’ red-headed girls. Why, you ask? Because that pair of red-headed girls has grown up to become a single red-headed train-wreck called Lindsay Lohan, who is now reduced to being a high-priced escort. At least that’s if you believe her dad Michael, who has taken his bold claims to Star Magazine.
“She is getting paid to date rich men,” says the always quotable Mike. “Dina [her mother] is pimping her out – it’s disgusting!” The article goes on the quote another source with “insider” knowledge on all things Lohan. ”The dates last for days, and the guys pay for everything -hotel, travel costs, food, whatever- as well as jewelry and other gifts.” Some of the evidence does seem pretty damming. The financially strapped actress did indeed spend the New Years holiday with Prince Haji Abdul Azim of Brunei, for which she reportedly earned “at least $100,000″ plus assorted pricey gifts like iPads and more jewelry. And then there was the time she dated that 40-year-old billionaire named Vikram Chatwal.
Dina and Lindsay Lohan in 1986, following the alleged assault.
After Dina Lohan went to the New York Daily News with her story about how ex-husband Michael Lohan assaulted her in 1986 and raped her in 1990, Lindsay’s mother gave Entertainment Tonightthree photos of herself with a black eye following the 1986 incident. Dina had actually spoken to the show back in September about the abuse, but the photos seem to have caught everyone’s attention now. And Michael Lohan, of course, was quick to respond.
“I didn’t punch her,” Michael told ET, reiterating his version of the incident, which he said started when Dina hit him in the back of the head with an ice tray. “I didn’t do anything deliberately to attack her. I swung out of reflex … she’s twisting everything.”
We kind of fail to see how swinging “out of reflex” is any less of an assault to a woman, by the way, especially when this reflex results in the black eye we see above. But since it’s a little too late for Dina to do anything about this, we do see his point that her timing is suspiciously self-serving. Ugh, they are both the worst.
As Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer headed to court today for a hearing on charges she assaulted a woman in a Manhattan night club in November, her mother has brought to light a very different defense of the troubled 26-year-old. And it actually makes a lot of sense to us, in the saddest way. Dina Lohan went to the New York Daily News on Sunday with her story of how ex-husband Michael Lohan abused and raped her in the late ’80s and early ’90s, and brought along police reports and medical documents to prove it.
“Lindsay saw her dad abuse me — that’s why she’s so screwed up,” Dina told the paper. She described how Michael punched her in the eye during a drive home after he been drinking and snorting cocaine. She also told of a time her husband raped her in her parents’ home, where she and her kids were living apart from him. On both occasions, Dina didn’t press charges because Michael was heading to prison for fraud and insider trading. Read more…
You know what I really hope my dad does if I’m ever arrested? Calls up Radar Online and blames everything on my mom. That’s what reigning Father of the Year Michael Lohan did this morning, upon learning ofLindsay Lohan’s arrest for allegedly punching a woman in the face at a New York nightclub.
“I TOLD you exactly what would happen and YOU KNOW I was trying to get Dina on board with me for a long time, BUT especially the last two weeks,” he told the site. “Lindsay is acting out in numerous ways because she needs us and internally she’s hurt and angry! Again, it’s ALL on Dina and I wish to God she would stop and resolve things with us to do the same for our children.”
That’s super helpful, ML! I’m sure Lindsay appreciates your support. Read more…
Watch the video above and you’ll see something fairly extraordinary: A person learning they have a long lost sibling, and then treating it like it’s NBD and getting right back on the promotional pitch! Yesterday it was revealed that Lindsay Lohan’s dad Michael fathered a lovechild back in the 90s, but we guess no one got around to telling her. She apparently first heard the news this morning during a television interview.
The controversial actress (polite euphemism for train-wreck) made an appearance on Good Morning America with Amy Robach today to discuss the airing of her upcoming TV-movie, Liz and Dick. But as so often happens, conversation turned towards her troubled history and family life, including the news of her newly discovered half-sister. Her reaction? “I didn’t even hear that, so thanks for the news!” Annnnnd then it was right back in the discussion of Elizabeth Taylor. Amazing! Either she’s really single minded, or maybe that was just her way of deflecting salacious family gossip and getting back to the task at hand: Resurrecting her career.
The Lifetime produced flick is certainly the most talked about made-for-TV-movie in recently memory, and people are eagerly waiting to see if it will be Lohan’s return to form. She admits channeling her own experiences while playing the role of screen legend, Elizabeth Taylor, who was also ruthlessly scrutinized by the media. “I think that everyone goes through things in life, and I like to learn from my mistakes, obviously,” she says. “But I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t gone through certain things, everything happens for a reason, good or bad. So you can just take what you’ve learned from it and move forward.” We’ll tune in on the 25th to see if Lilo moves forward, or just gets into another fender bender.
Is it just us, or are you also just plain exhausted with the Lohan family drama? It’s something new every week and we’re getting sick of it. They just got out of that whole Dina-did-she-or-didn’t-she-do-cocaine Lohan mess, with Lindsay pretty much disowning dad Michael. He obviously didn’t like that because he started the weekend off by staging an “intervention” on Lindsay. By that we mean he pretty much showed up at her house and refused to leave until she committed to going to a treatment center to get help. TMZ reports that Michael told them she’s surrounded by ”a bunch of alcoholics and drug addicts.” Of course the cops showed up because someone called them due to Michael’s trespassing. And this may be a case of the pot calling the kettle black, but Dina’s also tired of Michael, telling TMZ, “This sole act by my ex was not an intervention nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by any member of Lindsay’s family or her professional team of handlers. It’s all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again. It’s sad and I hope he stops masquerading as her father in public and starts acting like one in private.”
Michael himself is claiming that Lindsay’s whole management team — Evan Hainey (LiLo’s manager) Dave Feldman (entertainment lawyer) and Shawn Holley (defence lawyer) — are on board with this stunt of his. He’s also been saying that there have been emails circulating between all of them about Lindsay’s destructive behavior, which apparently includes, “drinking between a bottle and a bottle and a half of vodka per day. I have seen the empty bottles and even cocaine in her room at Chateau.” TMZ says they’ve seen some of the text messages between the group which date October 19th, which agree to Michael trying to … intervene.
He didn’t manage getting through to her, as the police showed up and now Lindsay wants an “order of protection” against him. But that’s not all, guys. Michael is a ball that keeps on rollin’ because the latest update is that he plans to go to court to try and get conservatorship for Lindz, a la Britney Spears and the first order of business will be getting her into rehab. Look … we don’t doubt that Lindsay is in trouble. It’s as plain as day that she’s been on a spiral for years. We just wished Michael would be a better role model and more sincere about actually help her, instead of helping himself. Because he isn’t exactly winning Father of the Year anytime soon. We always get the feeling he’s out to be famous, instead of being there for his famous daughter. And that’s just a shame.
We know it can be hard to nail down specific facts about a Lindsay Lohan news story. Honestly, there seems to be only one constant: Michael Lohan is the worst person ever. Allegedly. After her dad leaked the frantic phone call Lilo placed to him while fighting with her motherDina Lohan in a limo this week, Lindsay told TMZ Live today that dad Michael “doesn’t know what it means to be a father. He doesn’t want to be a dad.” Duh, girl! We’re going to go ahead and suggest you take that man’s number out of your cell phone. Better yet, just throw that sucker into the back of a garbage truck and keep on walking! The phone, we mean!
Of course, Lindsay also apparently made some highly questionable decisions during the aforementioned limo feud. “I told my dad a really hurtful and untruthful lie about my mom,. She was not on cocaine.” the Liz & Dick star now claims, directly contradicting to what she sobbed during their tearful argument. Scoffs Lindsay, “Daughters have fights with their moms. It happens a lot. It’s normal.” Sure, but we don’t think whether or not “fighting is normal” is the question on everyone’s mind here. That question would be something like, “Whaaaaa?”
We don’t know what’s more harrowing: the content of the phone call Lindsay Lohan placed from her limo fight with mother Dina Lohan last night, or the fact that her father Michael Lohan would turn around and give the audio from said call to TMZ. Both are depressing, but considering the content of Lindsay’s tirade, we’re going to go with the latter. “Dad, she’s on cocaine. She’s like touching her neck, and s—,” Lindsay says of Dina over the phone. “She’s threatening everyone in the car.” Lilo also reveals that she gave her mother $40,000 to “keep her house.” “Give me my 40 grand back!” Lohan cries. You can listen to the full audio here, but honestly just imagine the saddest thing you’ve ever heard and you’re pretty much there. “You tricked me,” Lindsay weeps during the call. See? We were not joking.
But as baffling as the call itself might seems to everyone else in the universe, what’s more perplexing is that Lindsay and Dina have apparently made up. Or at least made up to the point that they’re willing to hug each other outside Dina’s Long Island home, according to photos snapped of the pair today. We genuinely don’t know what to feel about this whole situation. Oh, except total and complete sadness. Of course.
We’re really wondering when Lindsay Lohan will realize that her nights out clubbing almost ALWAYS end in disaster. This time, according to TMZ, she was out at the Electric Room in Dream Hotel with mama Dina Lohan, and somewhere during their drive home to Dina’s house early this morning, the two fought viciously. According to TMZ’s source, by the time they arrived at their destination, the scuffle escalated to the point where Lindsay suffered a cut on her leg and a broken bracelet. Someone called 911 about the domestic dispute, apparently saying that Lindsay was being held against her will by Dina and the driver, and cops arrived on the scene. Officials told the site that a domestic incident report was made, but no arrests were made. Read more…
Dina Lohan is really doing her best to beat ex-husband Michael in the competition for Worst Parent in the World this week. On the heels of her seemingly intoxicated appearance on Dr. Phil and as Lindsay Lohan sits accused of swiping a dude with her Porsche, Dina gave an interview to the New York Daily News that just kind of makes everything worse. The News asked whether would she still allow Lindsay to go into acting, if she could do it all over.
“I was born into the business. My mother was an entertainer. It was natural. But yes, in the next life, I might not do it.”
At the same time, Lohan denies responsibility for her daughter. “I’m certainly not making excuses for Lindsay’s behavior,” Dina told the paper. “But she’s a 26-year-old woman.” Read more…
