The Lohan family saga is not too unlike an onion; a bastion of never ending dysfunctional layers.
Dina Lohan's messy financial and emotional state has long been suspected and was all but confirmed this week when (the even messier?) patriarch, Michael Lohan, leaked a frantic phone conversation between he and Lindsay Lohan early Wednesday morning, when the actress claimed her mother was "on cocaine" and holding her hostage against her will after a night of clubbing in NYC.
Lindsay has since retracted the comment — "I told my dad a really hurtful and untruthful lie about my mom. She was not on cocaine" — and has turned her rage to Michael now.
"I think everyone knows my father's main objective has always been to discredit my mom," she said. "I was just calling him as a daughter calling a father…he doesn't know what it means to be a father. He doesn't want to be a dad."
The actress then confirmed that she's "done" with her dad and he "edited" the conversation so that it sounded the way he wanted.
"I don't have the luxury of having a relationship with my Dad," she said.
The early morning call from Lindsay was likely a beam of light for Michael after Dina told Dr. Phil and Entertainment Tonight that he beat her repeatedly and she has "police reports, medical records and photos" of the physical abuse. Michael in turn threatened to sue.
Physical abuse or not, the New York Post recently revealed documents that Dina is $1.3 million in debt. She reportedly owes $1.1 million to JPMorgan Chase on an original $914,000 mortgage on her Long Island mansion, amongst a list of other debts spanning from 2007.
That being said, it's been purported that the root of Lindsay and Dina's early morning brawl was the result of a $40K loan from the actress that she has yet to pay back.
