In the wee hours of Wednesday morning (after a long night of nightclub partying together), Lindsay Lohan got into an epic altercation with her mother Dina Lohan. The incident was so bad, Lindsay felt compelled to reach out to her estranged father Michael Lohan for help. Unbeknownst to her, she says, Daddy Lohan recorded her frantic pleas for help and then sold the recording to TMZ for public distribution. After Lindsay found out her conversation was made public, she called in to TMZ Live! to denounce her father’s actions and speak out in support of her mother … who she had accused of being “on cocaine” during their fight. I mean, of course Lindsay was going to fight tabloid fire with even more tabloid fire. Click below to read some excerpts from Lindsay‘s conversation with TMZ and read what Daddy Lohan has to say in rebuttal.
Lindsay Lohan deeply regrets her blowout argument with her mother Dina Lohan — telling TMZ, what she said on the audio recording was NOT true … her mother was NOT on cocaine during the fight. Lindsay called in to “TMZ Live” moments ago — telling us, “I told my dad a really hurtful and untruthful lie about my mom. She was not on cocaine.” Lindsay says her father Michael Lohan betrayed her trust by releasing a recording of her desperate phone call to the media. Lindsay tells us, turning to her father in a moment of desperation was a massive mistake and she is now “done” with him forever — adding, Michael “doesn’t know what it means to be a father. He doesn’t want to be a dad.” Lindsay minimized yesterday’s argument, saying, “Daughters have fights with their moms. It happens a lot. It’s normal.” Lindsay also RIPS Dr. Phil for the way he conducted his interview with Dina — calling it “vile” and “disgusting.”
You can hear the full audio of Lindsay‘s chat with TMZ HERE (where she goes on and on about almost everything). Firstly, I have to reiterate how sad it is that Lindsay has to have these kinds of altercations with her parents. That she would come to her mother’s defense so quickly after a night of drunken/drugged/whatever drama speaks to me of their totally dysfunctional relationship. I can’t say I’m at all surprised that Lindsay decided to call in to TMZ to give her side of the story … TO COMPLAIN THAT HER FATHER RELEASED THEIR CALL TO TMZ IN THE FIRST PLACE. The levels of effed upness that goes on in this family is insane to me. INSANE. She says that she is “done” with her father but I know that is not true. She’s been “done” with him before … but he’s her dad. That she has to side with the lesser of two evils between her parents (depending on the day/drama) is just … tragic.
Never one to let go of a chance to speak to the public when his name is uttered by anyone else, Michael Lohan called up TMZ again to respond to Lindsay‘s remarks:
Dina Lohan has played mind games on her daughter to cover her own misdeeds … this according to Michael Lohan … Michael is adamant … Dina is pulling the strings, claiming, “This is just another manipulation by Dina to control Lindsay. Dina is just using Lindsay to cover her tracks.” Michael thinks it’s ridiculous Lindsay is now covering for Dina even claiming her mom was fine when she appeared on “Dr. Phil” and the good doc was “vile and disgusting,” accusing him of manipulating and berating Dina during the interview. Michael says, “Why is it that every time someone nails Dina doing something wrong, either on camera or on tape, they are always lying.” As for Lindsay’s vow to never talk to Michael again, he says, “I know Lindsay loves me and I love her very much.”
Another day, another drama … and so it goes when you’re Living La Vida Lohan. It sounds like this ridiculous back and forth has come to an end … for now. I’m sure it won’t belong until we hear of the next chapter in the life of the Lohans. I wonder what will happen next … any guesses?
