Lindsay Lohan Has a Secret Half Sister: Michael Lohan is Proven Father of Lovechild
The actress' dad, Michael Lohan, has discovered he fathered a daughter with former mistress Kristi Horn. Following long-running rumors that he had an illegitimate child, Michael submitted to a DNA test on an episode of The Trisha Goddard Show, which will air Thursday.The results returned positive, confirming Horn's claims that Michael is the father of her 17-year-old daughter, Ashley.
The paternity proves Michael carried on an affair with Horn during his 22-year marriage to ex-wife, Lindsay's mother Dina Lohan, which ended with divorce in 2007.
For years, Horn has publicly avowed that Michael is Ashley's biological father, even reaching out to the Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew star to ask for child support. Though he has always adamantly denied the allegations, Michael, 52, agreed to settle the matter by taking a DNA test.
During the episode of the daytime NBC talker, Michael comes face-to-face with his teenage daughter for the first time. After the results are revealed, Michael stands to try to embrace Ashley, but she cries out, "No, no, no," according to the Daily Mail. "I don’t want to be a part of what they’ve called the Lohan train wreck," she admits.
The news comes just weeks after Lindsay had a falling out with her father. After she phoned him during her now-infamous tear-filled feud with mom Dina, Michael leaked the conversation. "I think everyone knows my father's main objective has always been to...gain all he can from my name" she told TMZ at the time, adding that he has a "hunger for fame. I'm ashamed for him and it's hurtful to me. He doesn't know what it means to be a father at this point, and it's kind of the last straw for him."
