A couple days ago, Lindsay Lohan called up her dad, Michael Lohan, for help after her and her mother, Dina Lohan, got into a physical fight because Dina wanted more money out of Lindsay. So like any good father, Michael immediately recorded that phone call and sold it to TMZ because hey, he’s one of LiLo’s parents. He can’t get a job! Anyway, now Lindsay is claiming that everything she said about her mother in that phone call was a lie and that her father is dead to her.
TMZ had Lindsay Lohan on TMZ Live Thursday for 18 minutes. During the interview, in addition to saying she lied to Michael when she said Dina was using cocaine, she swore her dad was now dead to her. Lindsay sounded enraged that Michael recorded their phone conversation — which ended up on TMZ. 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.”
Yes, how dare one of Lindsay’s parents exploits her for their own personal financial gain! Or in this case, both of them. But only one of them sold a phone call from her to TMZ, while the other just straight up bilked her out of $40,000. It’s more about the upfront honesty, really.
