Dina Lohan: “Lindsay is messed up because her father is messed up”


In the ongoing trainwreck that is Lindsay Lohan’s life, is there any shadow of a doubt that her mother is her worst enabler? Her mother, the one who accompanied her to a “paid party” this New Year’s sponsored by Prince Azim of Brunei. Her mother, the one who regularly gets wasted with her daughter, does interviews wasted, and denies that her daughter has any problems whatsoever. It’s exhausting to try and recap the messiness in Lindsay Lohan’s life, but her mother has been there, denying and blaming and lying the entire time. There’s little doubt who taught Lindsay that a sense of entitlement, a total lack of personal responsibility, and a propensity to lie your ass off are completely acceptable coping skills.

So it’s not surprising to hear Dina blame her ex husband for all of Lindsay’s problems. What’s surprising to me is that Dina is finally admitting that Lindsay has a problem. Did Lindsay and her mom have another big fight on New Year’s and is this payback? Did Lindsay tell her mom not to cut in on her international profits?

In a new interview with the NY Daily News, Dina goes into details about a rape she claims she suffered from her ex, Micheal Lohan, when they were estranged in 1990; Michael claims it was consensual and that Dina accused him of rape as payback. (Dina’s children did not witness the rape.) Michael also claims that Dina’s allegations of physical abuse are inaccurate and that she hit him first. Given vagina-kicker Michael’s history of abusing the women in his life, I believe Dina. She’s delusional if she think that Lindsay’s problems are entirely due to Michael, but this isn’t new from her. Here are some excerpts from the interview. There’s more at the source if you’re interested.

“Michael beat the hell out of me,” Dina said, of the 1986 incident memorialized in a family snapshot of the young mother holding her baby girl — Lindsay — while sporting a huge purple bruise under her right eye.

“When Lindsay saw the photo, she was furious,” said Dina. “She said, ‘Tell the world! Talk about it!’ ”

According to Dina, Lindsay was affected by all that she saw as a child — and she’s not to blame for her faltering career or oddball antics.

“She saw a lot of crazy stuff. I want the world to know the root of her problems…”

“Lindsay saw all the beatings and all the abuse. She said, ‘Stay, mommy, don’t leave,’ ” said Dina.

Recently, Dina said, her adult daughter expressed regret for those words.

“She said, ‘I’m so sorry for making you stay.’ But I didn’t stay for Lindsay — I wanted all my kids to be happy,” said Dina.

“Like many victims of domestic violence and rape, I was embarrassed and afraid. I was very young . . . I thought I could keep fixing him,” Dina said.
She said she came forward now to “set the record straight. I need to make the world aware that Lindsay is messed up because her father is messed up.”

Michael said he believes Dina is seeking cover from criticism of her own parenting decisions.

“She’s bringing this up now because she’s drinking and partying with Lindsay. And she keeps robbing Lindsay,” he said, claiming that his actress daughter is his ex-wife’s main source of income. “She is the devil.”

Lindsay, who has her share of legal problems, is expected to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court Monday to see if she’ll face charges for a catfight she got into with a Florida palm reader in a Chelsea nightclub’s VIP room in November.

[From The NY Daily News]

I can’t with these people, they’re all awful, and I’m including their crackhead daughter in that mix. The Lohans are trashier than any reality television family going, and they don’t even rate reality TV anymore.

In the ongoing, constant news about Lindsay’s string of legal problems, there’s an update from TMZ on her court case today. Wouldn’t you know it, the crackhead skated again. Of course she did! After partying until 5am Saturday morning in London, she didn’t bother to get her paid-for ass on a plane and back to New York City for her scheduled court appearance. She didn’t need to make up an excuse about “losing” her passport this time, because the case was delayed. And here I was hoping that New York justice would be swifter than California justice. In case you forgot which crack-scuffle this case pertained to (I did!) it had to do with her punching that “psychic” in a nightclub in November.

You know what this reminds me about? Michael Lohan is still expecting a baby with Kate Major. That’s going to be epic.

    And Dina wins Mother of the Year. They are both looking very ROUGH around the edges! Michael is a creep, no doubt, but he just turns around and blames it on Dina….just something else to argue about.

  2. LeeLoo says:

    Parenting Lohan style tip #844: Blame the other parent for the kid you BOTH created for being messed up.

  3. Sam says:

    I don’t…entirely disagree with Dina here.

    I do think Lindsay came from a really messed up home. And yes, I do think that is largely the root of her problems. HOWEVER, none of this can get her off the hook for her behavior. She is an adult who could have chosen to get therapy for her issues and work through them. She chooses to make it an excuse and continue her abusive behavior. So even if this is true, she still isn’t deserving of sympathy.

    • Cait says:

      This. I was abused as a child by my parents, and I also witnessed some pretty serious violence.

      Regardless, at 33, I’m culpable for my own choices and actions. I chose to go to counseling to deal with my childhood, so that I could be a functional spouse and parent, rather than letting that painful baggage run my life.

      It’s a bloody copout on her part. It’s a handy excuse, and while I don’t doubt that the Lohan household was full of violence, rage and substance abuse, the fact remains that Lindsay is now 26 years old. She’s on the hook for her own life now.

      • Meredith says:

        Congratulations on your courage in facing the abuse in your past. It is a brave step. I wonder if Lindsay is still so stuck in it because Dina is still so financially dependent on Lindsay. If LL wasn’t paying her mom’s bills, DL probably would have cut her loose years ago and moved onto her next sucker. But now DL’s got too much invested in this “long con” of her own daughter. And she’s not going to let go.

      • Skipper says:

        Me too, Cait. Glad to hear you are doing well now! I was an only child raised by two rage-filled, violent alcoholics for parents. Not fun. At least I always knew I was the sane, responsible one and they were both nuts. Life wasn’t always smooth-sailing once I became an adult and I had a lot of issues to work out at counselling (for 6 years, at which I spent my life savings). However, it was money very well spent and now life is great.

        The problem with Lindsay is that she is too spoiled/in denial, with a crackhead-enabler for a mother, to ever admit she has a problem and then to take the next step of actually dealing with her problem!! Won’t happen. I’m sure her life growing up wasn’t easy, if Dina’s allegations are true, but there comes a time when you have to grow up and realize it’s your life now and you have the power to make it whatever you want it to be. I wonder if she is still feeling powerless to some extent…and there appears to be too much co-dependence between Lindsay and Dina and that’s why they blame everyone else for everything… they can’t face the truth otherwise, too painful and too shameful.

      • erika says:

        the hardest thing to do….on a day to day basis is to accept responsibility for your own actions. Big Congrats for that!

        and I do mean it when i say day to day basis, you may not encounter terrible, struggling problems every single day but you accept responsibility for the GOOD and the BAD.

        i’m 41 and struggle a bit sometimes w/ that

      • Skipper says:

        @skipper – you are a skipper imposter. I am Skipper!!!

      • AmyB says:

        Wow you have the same “name” as my daughter. Good for you emerging from hell and back. It takes the strongest people to do that. I came from a dysfunctional family that did not beat me but hurt and abused me emotionally. Lots of therapy too….that is what it takes and forgiveness as well. Hate only eats you up on the inside. As far as LiLo goes I feel true pity for her. Lost girl with no one to turn to….she is a train wreck waiting to happen. Wish someone sane would intervene.

    • Gm says:

      Yeah. Michael was a beater and Dina stayed with him. They’re both at fault.

    • Troubadour says:

      Yes, completely right. Because here in America our compassion and pity for people must end when they turn 18.

      • Seen says:

        Not at all. But when is enough enough? I’d say about 5 years ago. And I’m a mother of a 25 year old.

      • Cait says:

        Compassion is one thing. A blank check for poor behavior is another thing entirely.

        And frankly, Dina and Lindsay rely on excuses for their poor behavior. What a tiresome manner in which to live that must be, completely bereft of personal accountability and self-awareness.

      • Troubadour says:

        Seen, if you raised the child (and in some cases even if you didn’t)I would recommend you not be so quick to blame her alone. If you start pointing fingers at her they’re likely going to start curling back around at you. And you may have to start facing up to some rather unpleasant things in the mirror.

      • Cait says:

        Frankly, though, I CAN relate. I do come from an abusive home. There was substance abuse and violence between my parents – and even directed at the children – throughout my childhood.

        Does it still haunt me? Certainly. Do I let it own me to the extent of it overshadowing my ability to not only cope, but move forward towards the productive and happy life I deserve? Absofrickinlutely not. I’m an adult. I’m a parent. I’m a wife. I’m worth more than wallowing in the pain of my past.

      • swack says:

        Troubadour – We get it. She had a horrible life growing up. But she has had countless opportunities to help herself and she has thrown them away. She was in court ordered therapy and over half the time just called in. She’s been in rehab 5 or more times in which one of the times she snuck out and got inebriated. SHE doesn’t want to change and so won’t change. SHE is old enough to tell mommy and daddy to “kiss off” (not that it is that easy) and cut them off from all money. SHE chooses not to do so and SHE chooses who she hangs with. Please don’t enable her any further by saying it’s all mommy’s and daddy’s fault.

      • Troubadour says:

        Swack who said it was all mommy and daddy’s fault? If we were to talk about fault I’m sure there’s plenty to go around, but why should we need to?

        L.L. is a broken human being and whether it’s through her own doing or others she, as a HUMAN BEING, is still deserving of our pity and compassion. She isn’t cut off from that just because she reaches a certain age.

        That’s human compassion. Now, justice is something different entirely. And I would suggest your issues with L.L. might be better placed before a legal system that isn’t doing its job.

      • swack says:

        Troubadour – I have compassion for those who take the opportunities they are given seriously. I have issues with the fact that she has been given more opportunities to straighten out her life and has thrown those opportunities straight down the drain. I would say the same thing about ANYONE who has been given the gift of getting well, doesn’t take it seriously and basically throws it away. While the justice system hasn’t done her any favors, it is not their job to fix her issues. It is their job to punish (for lack of a better word) her for the crimes she has committed. And I don’t see anywhere you posted that you hold her accountable for her behavior.

      • Troubadour says:

        Swack. The law is for protection first and foremost. It should have already protected both L.L. from herself and us from her actions because she’s dangerous. I have no problem with that.

        I do have a problem when someone talks about using the law to “punish” and holding others “accountable”, especially when that person has not been harmed by the lawbreaker.

        Why should it profit you to punish her?

      • Sam says:

        Troubadour: Uh, where did you go to law school? The law is foremost not about protection. Look up the Supreme Court case that noted that law enforcement has no duty to protect anyone. Criminal law is established to criminalize behaviors that society would rather not have in it, first and foremost. Its second function is to decide upon punishments for breaking the law. It also has some rehabilitative aspects, but mostly, its to punish. Seriously, I’d read a treatise or something if I were you. It might help.

  4. Sweet Dee says:

    Oh come on. Lindsay never had a chance. We didn’t know that until she was all Crackie all the time and her parents started showing the world their true colors, but it’s true. They’re both so effed up I don’t see how she could have developed normally.

    • JuneBug says:

      Sweet dee… I came from a home where my sisters and I were beaten, called horrible names, had a gun put to our heads by our mother. Our father was on drugs and never around. I’m a business owner and I’ve never broken the law .
      Now, please tell me again about Lindsey not having a chance ?

      • Troubadour says:

        Well since you made it personal: because not everybody is made exactly like you JuneBug.

        And health is not measured by material success and outward appearances alone, by the by.

      • Tifygodess24 says:

        Junebug I agree with you, thousands of people have grown up in households worse than the Lohans and have grown up to be law abiding citizens. The things Lindsey saw as a child are only a portion of what her problem is. She chooses to stay in that pattern. But unlike her and the average joe she has access to help and resources they don’t so at this point there is no excuse for her behavior. Sounds to me like she’s always wanting to play the blame elsewhere rather than stop and look at herself. No excuse. she continues her nasty behavior because she CAN plain and simple.

      • bluhare says:

        Troubadour said: And health is not measured by material success and outward appearances alone, by the by.

        True, but if you read JuneBug’s post she also said she hasn’t broken the law, which means she hasn’t abused anyone, drove drunk, stolen, etc., etc., etc.. I do agree with you that not everyone has the intestinal fortitude to deal with an upbringing like that, but give some props to someone who has.

      • Green_Eyes says:

        Huge props to Troubador! I agree 100% w/ her. I went thru a lot growing up. Molested as a toddler by a family friend, both parents abused alcohol on a daily basis & when literally not trying to kill each other.. I was the target take your pick verbally, emotionally, and physically. I had no one to turn to to protect me, even though teachers, my doctors (was a sickly child w/ many health problems..some sadly not diagnosed correctly until I was an adult & damage was done & I still pay health wise today) except 1 teacher & Herod all he could..but by then I was almost 18. I never understood why my big brother was never
        touched, but now I believe I was seen as
        damaged goods. I’ll never know for sure and I could be wrong. Either way.. I forgave, I will never forget, BUT I will never let it or anything from my past define the woman I became or my future. I went to College as a young adult thanks to Student loans. I & I alone paid off my Student Loans working 2 full time jobs when I had to & health permitted. For everyone like Troubordor or I there are 3 others (my spouse was gang raped trying to protect his lil brother in an orphanage as a child, after they saw their father accidentally shoot himself at the age of 8). He is one of the kindest & most respected men I know, & never speaks ill of anyone. He takes responsibility for his life; at some point we all have to, most of us did so w/ nothing to our name & no one when we were at our lowest. LL had the means most do not. She chose to repeat the cycle. My brother is repeating my parents to a degree, his sorry excuse “he was bound to repeat it as he did not seek counseling for all he witnessed me going thru”. Are you kidding me…and I majored in Psychology (rehabilitation therapy) in college. Think he & LL need to start a pity party club.

  5. Green is Good says:

    Dinasaurus has some set of balls.

  6. tabasco says:

    holy jeebus, those pictures!!!! just when you think you can’t be any further horrified by lohan pics….WRONG!

    the lohans make that honey boo boo family look like the picture of health.

  7. aims says:

    Continuing the Lohan legacy, shift the blame to someone else. They are all crappy people. Sickos!!

  8. janie says:

    Enough of all this. Done commenting on these nuts.

  9. janie says:

    Enough of all this. Done commenting on these nuts.

  10. Lee says:

    on a completely separate note: LL’s hands look HUGE in the 2nd picture.

  11. G says:

    She’s such a wretched and vile woman. Because Lindsey is the ONLY one on earth who saw that level of BS growing up? GTFOH

    Shia Labeouf’s dad was a drug addict, Jim Carrey’s family lived in a car once, Oprah was poor and abused so please spare us.

    • BlueBird says:

      I completely agree with G. Good grief, lots of people have baggage that is heavy and ugly, but …to have grown up in good or bad circumstances, rich or poor, violent or sunny certainly do not give you a pass to be an arrogant, belligerent, self entitled a..hole. And that is all she is. Not an iota of empathy, kindness, humor, humanity

  12. Gwen says:

    I think Dina is more to blame personally.

  13. Samigirl says:

    BOTH OF YOU SUCK, DINA. You can’t party with your daughter and then blame her addictions on Michael. You are both pieces of sh*t, and you’re both partially responsible for the way your daughter turned out.

  14. palermo says:

    Lindsay was the big loser in the bad parent department BUT at the age she is now her choices are her own. If she keeps messing up that’s on her.

  15. littlestar says:

    Was Dina ever normal? Probably not. But does anyone remember when Lindsay first came out into the Hollywood scene as a kid? Was there any crazy stories of Dina and Michael back then? Maybe I’m wrong here, but it seems like they all went nuts when Lindsay first started partying hard and drugging. Maybe at one point Dina was a decent mom? Again, probably not. I’m just rambling here. Also, I don’t think Michael was ever a decent parent.

  16. Madriani's Girl says:

    “When Lindsay saw the photo, she was furious,” said Dina. “She said, ‘Tell the world! Talk about it!’ ”

    Excuse me????? That was in 1986. That was the year the Cracken was born yet she commented on the bruise? And she saw her father beat and rape her mother? O rly? When she wasn’t even in the house? And thirdly, if MiBlo walloped WO in the car while he was driving, the bruise would be on the left side of her face – not her right. This BS is about as real as her claim to have been a Rockette.

    • cynicalsmirk says:

      I hate to question or doubt women’s stories of assault. I know first hand how demoralizing it is to have to admit to being abused in the first place, and to have that admission doubted is a kick in the gut when you’re already down. So I won’t doubt Dina. What I will do is suggest that there is no excuse for getting wasted with your adult daughter at various “parties” and then hanging around and drinking/snorting some more while she services some guys until the wee hours. Can you imagine being a mother and listening to your daughter being used like a sex toy? That is low low low gutter trash behaviour. How could any person do this to their child?

      • Madriani's Girl says:

        I don’t doubt Michael is abusive but since everything that comes out of Dina’s mouth is a lie, it’s hard to feel for her. If she WAS abused then it was her duty to take the kids and run, not continue to allow herself to be put into situations where her children witness her abuse.

  17. Michelle says:

    How does she still get gigs? How does she still show up with other professionals in the business? One would think they would start excluding her, she is a dark blemish on Hollywood. I cannot think of anyone, of consequence, that has tried to step in and actually get her help. I really wonder about the people she parties with…

  18. Cecada says:

    “Lindsay saw all the beatings and abuse. She said, “Stay Mommy, don’t leave…”

    Since when does the mother task the child with that kind of decision?

    “She said, ‘I’m so sorry for making you stay.’ But I didn’t stay for Lindsay — I wanted all my kids to be happy,” said Dina.

    THIS comment is so retarded I don’t even know where to start… How was staying with the abusive husband supposed to be making the kids happy?

    Dina, STFU and crawl back into your vodka bottle. How DARE you play the abuse card, considering what you’ve done – and are DOING – to your kids!

  19. OhDear says:

    No one in that family knows how to take responsibility for themselves. Sad.

  20. Bess says:

    The Cracken will never be able to get her life on track unless she completely cuts her parents and siblings out of her life.

    I don’t see that happening, as White Oprah & her three siblings are her main support system.

  21. Em says:

    I think the quote was, “Lindsay is messed up because her father AND I, HER MOTHER, are messed up pieces of trash who care more a quick buck and coke than we ever did about actually parenting.”

  22. Stubbylove says:

    The first pic is perfect. Those crazy, f’d up bitches should NOT be wearing heels that high – just waiting for a header.

  23. JL says:

    I didn’t see daddy pimping her out in London. That block on the game board that says “Delusional and only fooling yourself” Dina “You are Here” “Do not pass Go”.

    I’d bet money Dina will be working a movie deal when Lindsey dies.

    Being a washed up ‘escort’ is bad, selling your own child for profit = Go straight to Hades.

  24. some bitch says:

    The bottom photo really makes me sad. You can see a faint glimmer of 17 year old Lindsay somewhere in there.

  25. skuddles says:

    At least Dina finally admits Lindsay is a mess. But yeah… like she’s not every bit as culpable as Milo. But the fact is, Lindsay has an obligation, as an adult, to get her shit together at long last. She has the means (and past court recommendations) to go to rehab and get into therapy and turn her life around. Lots of people come from dysfunctional backgrounds and they’re not constantly getting wasted and breaking the law every two seconds.

  26. Incredulous says:

    Dina, when Michael Lohan sounds more sensible than you, there is something very, very wrong.

    Can we spay them or something? I do not want these people cluttering up the gene pool.

  27. Mich says:

    This is, of course, why the Cracken so totally connected with the ladies at the women’s shelter during her court-mandated community service.

    When she wore that see through shirt with no bra? She was really saying, “Hey, I get you and what you are going through!”

    And when she stopped going because she found it less than fulfilling? It was really because she was just so darn traumatized by her past.

  28. Liz says:

    So when does LL go before the judge in CA? This is all just PR to get the judge on her side.

  29. NerdMomma says:

    What kind of a culture do we live in when we care about the words of the mother of a washed-up former child star? When the wicked evil father of the former child star gets interviewed? The degrees of separation from anyone who actually DOES anything is getting really far. This is like watching a really dishy soap opera, except these people are actually real. It’s sad. I need some dresses to critique ASAP! And Oscar noms.

  30. Reece says:

    Ummm, pot calling the kettle black.

    Although at Lindsay’s age, it is time to stop blaming her parents! These are the choices she herself makes.

  31. Barbara says:

    Seems to me that she was not the only offspring in that household. Don’t see the other 3 in court for anything at all.

  32. Booboocita says:

    Oh, geez. My father was (is, actually — we haven’t spoken in many years) an abusive asshole. My mom stuck around because she’s a devout Catholic who didn’t believe in divorce. When the abuse finally got too bad to bear, she left and took me and my sisters with her. She’s a strong, loving woman with a deep-rooted sense of right and wrong, and who tried her best to instill that sense in her daughters.

    While I love her dearly, she is NOT my best friend. I’ve taken her out to dinner and to movies, and sometimes we share a couple of margaritas while laughing like hyenas, but she’s not my buddy — she’s my MOM. Mom, who is my moral arbiter and good conscience. Mom, who tells me when I done wrong, even while loving me. Mom, who raised me and sheltered me from freakazoids and taught me to avoid bad influences. And every time I read another tabloid story about LiLo, I thank God on my knees for my mom, and I ask for blessings for all good moms. And I truly am terribly sorry for LiLo. With parents like hers, what chance did she ever have?

  33. lucy2 says:

    Lindsay is messed up for 3 reasons – her mother, her father, and herself. She got dealt a bad hand with her parents, but has chosen to continue it and make it even worse.

    Also, while I’m sure there was all kinds of abuse in that family, none of them seem capable of telling the truth, Dina included.

  34. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Dear god,

    How much lower can these people go?!

    From this I draw that;

    1) ML is a violent abusive pr1ck
    2) DL is a manipulative drug using enabling b!tch
    3) LL is a drug addict, alcoholic hooker with 2 vile excuses for parents

    So no shockers there!

    This is def going to end badly, there is just no other way and its getting really really disgusting and unbearable now.

    I also think this is Dina’s way to garner sympathy for her ‘child’ before court – she obviously doesn’t really care about Lindsay as long as she has access to drugs, drink, rich arabs and therefore Dina’s income

    What the he11 has the world come to?

    & last comment – in what universe is it acceptable for a mother and daughter to go out and do coke together???

  35. bangarang says:

    I saw my dad beat up my mum too, and my dad was verbally and physicaly abusive to me as well. I’m lucky that my mum got out before the abuse to me got too much. I guess how you cope with abuse is a personal thing, for me personally I don’t go clubbing, drinking and taking drugs to excess I have trust issues.

    Also its the level of support you have from your other parent and those around you; my mum is the rock in my life. I think LL’s behaviour may stem from abuse but its not the sole reason for her to be acting this way.

  36. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    They are all victims…of their own mistakes.

  37. RedSoxGirl says:

    is it just me, or does Dina remind you of Ramona from RHONY? Seriously, I’d pay to see Dina and Pinot in a room together, but after 2 minutes, the crackiness, crazy eyes, absurd claims and lack of accountability would make me firebomb the room.

  38. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    Everyone on here is so disgusted with Lindsay but I think she had a childhood full of every kind of abuse – much worse than what Dina is talking about here.

  39. TXCinderella says:

    Isn’t that the same prince that hires “models” and then tries to prostitute them? I think I saw that on some show that the girls were horrified because they thought they were being paid large sums of money to stand around and look pretty.

  40. Sam H x says:

    They are all their own worst enemies! Enough said.

  41. Jennifer12 says:

    UGH, I wouldn’t trust these people with a goldfish. Karma is going to be really ugly. Can’t believe God would give them even ONE kid.

  42. Mita says:

    WHY DIDNT SHE SAY ANY OF THIS ON THE DR.PHIL SHOW???? Dina had chance to open up and let the world know what Michael did to her. Instead she acted like a giddy little teenager. This still isnt an excuse for Lindsays behavior. Her other siblings arent out partying and boo hooing over the past. Get it together Lindsay! Its now or never!

  43. muppet_barbershop says:

    The fact that Dina refers to herself as a part of “survivors of domestic violence and rape” is super creepy to me. It sounds like a deliberate attempt to associate herself with those who have survived worse than she has. I still sometimes hope Lindsay will get her shiz together, but I hope that Ali, especially, gets the hell away from Dina and Michael so she might have a life.

  44. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    The only ONE TO BLAME FOR LINDSAY LOHAN is LINDSAY DEE LOHAN.!!!!!

    6 out to 10 adults in the US can say they grew up in a abusive home because of the now broad spectrum the word abusive now takes in…..so she in NOT special…she is like 6 out of then adults….
    I could blame every problem in my life on the abusive childhood but I don’t and want…..
    Lindsay Lohan was a spoiled child and mean older kid and a bully who turned into a promiscuous teen ager let loose in Hollywood to live by herself in a Hotel known as a drug haven and sex haven by a mother who was more interested in the money she could make .Lindsay has ruled that family from the time she was three and started to make money make no mistake……Think Tots and Tiara’s times ten…..and you have Lindsay growing up…..Whos’ to blame…
    Lindsay Dee Lohan….thats who….
    and you know what is ironic …..she is exactly like her mother…….a sociopath…..with personality disorders and addictic tendencies…and a habitual liar…..

    Dina, you party with your drug, alcohol addicted daughter that has been in rehab too many times to count. Michael is responsible for his act years ago, YOU are responsible for enabling your child now!

    I just read the NY Daily News account of White Oprah’s story. She claims in both instances, after Michael punched her in the face and after the rape, that she didn’t press charges because ML was already headed for jail for other offenses. Wouldn’t that be the best time to press charges? It doesn’t make sense to me.

    The Parent Trap…how ironic!!!!

  49. Veronica Lodge says:

    I am an adult close to Lyndsay’s age, I also grew up with two very dysfunctional parents one of whom is currently still in jail. Lyndsay is a big girl. She needs to get over herself. THe entitlement, the blame game – needs to stop, or this chick will be dead in two years or even more of a joke. As an adult, you either accept your parents, take the best you can from them and leave the rest and create some space or you ignore them. Look at Leighton (from Gossip Girl), her mom was in jail and extorted her…but you don’t hear about her shitting on anyone and society.

    Dina, please!!! YOU were the one with the most influence on her and the one mostly responsible for how LiLo turned out as an adult. By all accounts, MiLo wasn’t much of a father or even around to help raise those kids. I’m not exonerating him of any blame, but he did not have quite as much to do with the daily responsibility as Dina does. As parents go, they both suck, but Dina can’t lay all of the name at MiLo’s door, either.

    The worst part of this co-dependent family is that Mom and Dad depend on Lindsay for financial support. They are a mess. Yoohoo?! Dr. Phil…. :D Call them out!

  52. Bread and Circuses says:

    Nature or nurture?

    Is Lindsay this way because she’s the perfect storm of Dina and Michael’s horrible-person DNA–or because they raised her?

    Honestly, I think both effects contribute equally.

  53. Dimebox says:

    I agree with everyone that Lindsay’s parents are users, abusers, enablers etc. I think she is so deep into her lifestyle that she may not have a wish to get better. After all, she travels, stays in fabulous hotels, parties for pay, and probably thinks her lifestyle is one that most of us envy. Of course there is a trail of destruction behind her.

    Does anyone else wonder what the prince who was her latest benefactor is actually paying for? She is usually in such bad shape that I doubt she is the most “talented” bedroom companion. I bet that he had backups for that and that Lindsay and Dina were there more for a cruel point and laugh entertainment. Kind of like a human zoo. I know that sounds mean, but they may be the modern equivalent of court jesters.

  54. gg says:

    Wow, Dina, what a responsible, intelligent, mature thing to report. Proud of you. :roll:

    GET HELP!

    These freaks make Honey Boo Boo, Mama June and Sugar Bear look respectable and loving. Take notes Lohans.

  56. mytbean says:

    Why do I get the impression that Lindsey is working her way into the role of the new Heidi Fleiss… if she’s not there already? All of her relatively secret customers and multiple slips through the legal system would make sense if her patrons were actually reputable and had financial weight to throw around. Of course, to be Fleiss, she’d need working girls doing the business while she sat back and collected the cash. She’s doing the work. Hm.

  57. Jayna says:

    They were showing Lindsay doing some music video or something years ago with her sister in some windows of stores in NY. Plus showed an interview. Man, has she ruined her face. In the old interview it was her old face. She was so cute. It’s shocking seeing how much the cheek implants gave her a harder, older look added with the fish lips she has going on right now. Very sad.
