Lindsay Lohan‘s life just keeps getting more interesting … not only has she seemingly NOT ceased her partying ways despite being freshly released from rehab, not only has her estranged father moved all the way across the country so that he can live closer to Lindsay in order to try and infiltrate her life … but NOW she is learning that she has another sister, fathered by Michael Lohan as a result of a brief love affair in the early 90′s. Life & Style magazine has all the deets:
Just a week after Lindsay Lohan was released from jail, an unexpected family member is reaching out to help, claiming she is the stars long-last half sister! Life & Style has exclusively obtained the birth certificate of 15-yr-old Ashley Horn — and it names Linday’s father, Michael Lohan, as her dad. Ashley’s mother, Kristi –who had a brief affair with Michael in the early 1990’s while he was married to (but separated from) Dina–came forward with their story in 2008, but Michael denied that he was the father. “In December 2008 we had a court hearing that Michael was ordered to appear at for the DNA testing,” Kristi tells Life & Style. When Michael didn’t show (he says he was on probation and couldn’t travel), a judge ruled that his name could be added to the birth certificate. But Michael is still denying that he’s Ashley’s father, telling Life & Style, “I’d be glad to take a DNA test!” Kristi also claims that Michael owes a staggering $300,000 in back child support (a ruling his lawyers are contesting). Now, Lindsay Lohan’s not the only one ripping into Michael for not being there for his family. “I do not trust him, and I don’t want to be around him or part of his life,” Ashley tells Life & Style. “I could never call Michael Lohan ‘Dad.’ A dad is a person who is there for you and takes care of you.” Ashley says she wanted to reach out to Lindsay this summer when the star was in jail and rehab, but having no ties to the family made it impossible. “I wanted to help Lindsay in some way, but what was I supposed to do?” Ashley tells Life & Style. “I don’t even know how to contact her.”
In response to this story by L&S, Daddy Lohan is telling TMZ that Ashley is not his daughter … and he is willing to go to Maury Povich to prove that she is not:
Michael Lohan is trying to put an end to allegations he fathered an illegitimate daughter 15 years ago … and to clear his name, he’s turning to the expert in daddy DNA drama — Maury Povich. Sources tell TMZ … Lohan is currently talking to “Maury” producers about going on the show and taking a paternity test to prove he never impregnated Kristi Kaufmann … who claims she had an affair with Mike in the ’90s. Lohan tells TMZ Kaufmann has demanded child support in the past … and even changed the child’s birth certificate to bear Michael’s last name … which would make the kid Lindsay adjacent.
I mean, how much more trashy can all of this get? Wait a minute, don’t answer that … I’m afraid we may find out. If I were Ashley Horn, I’d want to keep news that Michael Lohan was my father a HUGE secret. UGH. Trust me, Ashley … you do NOT want to actually become a Lohan.
