If this is true, than it adds another layer of complexity to the tragic fall of a super cute child star. Lindsay Lohan is not brought up in conversations about movies. Mostly, people refer to her when drug use, court dates, or traffic violations are being discussed. Over the past few years, Lindsay has had brief moments of lucidity, but always seems to descend back into a drug-fueled chaos. Now, her mom Dina Lohan is speaking out about why Lindsay turned out this way.
You may remember Dina from her drunk Dr Phil interview. She’s also the mom who took her daughter to all night parties, taught her to hold her liquor, and possibly even introduced her to drugs. Dina alleges that “Lindsay saw her dad Michael abuse me. That’s why she’s so screwed up.” Michael Lohan has made news recently for domestic violence towards his girlfriend, and the thought that this is a habit of his is disgusting, especially in front of a child.
Apparently, the family scandal hit the fan over the holidays. “Michael beat the hell out of me,” Dina tells. Over Christmas, Lindsay found a photo showing Dina with bruises, holding a baby Lindsay. “When Lindsay saw the photo, she was furious. She said, ‘Tell the world! Talk about it!’ She saw a lot of crazy stuff. I want the world to know the root of her problems.” There are no words that can make up for something as cruel and scarring as domestic violence, but I wonder if that can fully account for some of Lindsay’s decisions. History aside, she is an adult and makes her own decisions. She’s been in and out of rehabs, therapy, and jail. Surely some discussion of this would have occurred? Whatever her truth is, we know this: Lindsay needs more help! We hope she can get clean and rejoin society.
