Michael Lohan Says Mom Dina Helped Mess Lindsay Up Too

Michael Lohan is all about shared parental responsibility—at least where it concerns placing blame for the troubles of his daughter, Lindsay Lohan.

According to reports, LiLo—who’s currently cooling her heels in rehab at the Betty Ford Center after testing positive on a court-ordered drug test—has been telling pals that her father is to blame for the situation that she finds herself in, thanks to his history of incarceration, absenteeism and alleged abusive behavior.

And now Papa Lohan is stepping up to say that his daughter’s accusations are untrue—his ex-wife, Dina Lohan, has provided plenty of help in destabilizing Lindsay’s life as well.

The elder Lohan tells TMZ that Dina engaged in a streak of reckless behavior that definitely left its mark on an impressionable young Lindsay. Chief among the accusations: That, when LiLo was 4 years old, Dina got into an argument with Michael’s mother—and allegedly smashed a phone across her face, causing an injury that required six stitches.

Michael goes on to claim that Dina once attempted to attack Michael, leaping over two beds to get at him—and accidentally knocking herself out in the process.

For the record, a friend of Dina’s says that Michael’s claims are “absolutely not true. She will not respond to anything Michael Lohan says.” 

Maybe they can work out a joint custody arrangement for the guilt over ruining their daughter’s life.
