In the recent years, we’ve heard nothing but terrible things about Lindsay Lohan’s behaviour. To many, it seems like the child actress has slipped into a place (that involves drugs and alcohol) that’s way beyond help. But a day before LiLo is expected to appear in a New York City court as a result of her arrest in November for allegedly punching a woman at a nightclub, her mom speaks out.
According to 50-year-old Dina, her daughter’s troubles can be traced as far back as what LiLo experienced firsthand as a child. And no, she wasn’t talking about “The Parent Trap”.
“Lindsay saw her dad abused me – that’s why she’s so screwed up. Michael beat the hell out of me. She saw a lot of crazy stuff. I want the world to know the root of her problems”, Dina said. She also offered up family photos and medical records as evidence.
Among her shocking claims, she detailed a 1986 incident in which they went to dinner and after he started boozing and doing cocaine. Michael allegedly gave her a bruise under her right. She backed up her allegation with a family photo of the then-young mom holding baby Lindsay and showing a bruised face, and hospital paperwork dated 4th December 1986, that noted she was treated for “blunt trauma”.
She also went on to accuse Michael of being addicted to cocaine and that things got so bad in their relationship that the two became estranged and she alleges that he ended up raping her on 14th February 1990 while she was staying at her parents’ house as the kids were asleep.
So, let us get this straight, Dina. Your daughter is a train wreck because of your history with your ex-husband but yet you’re encouraging this “train wreck”-ness by partying and publicly making out with her? You gotta be kidding. (Source)
