Lindsay Lohan is set to appear in court this week relating to her on-going legal woes and while the 26 year-old's 2013 looks like it's going to be a similar story to her troubled 2012, her mother/manager Dina has reportedly revealed exactly why her daughter's so “messed up”.
The 'Mean Girls' star maybe heading for jail after reportedly breaking the terms of her probation for theft of jewellery in 2011, after a car accident last summer. She also faces charges relating to a fight in an New York nightclub last December where she reportedly punched another patron.
Now Dina has reportedly blamed her father Michael for “screwing up” their daughter, claiming Lindsay witnessed domestic abuse in their 22 year-old marriage.
According to the New York Daily News, Dina made the shocking claims during an interview at a Long Island hotel recently.
She reportedly said: “Lindsay saw her dad abuse me — that’s why she’s so screwed up.”
Adding: “She saw a lot of crazy stuff. I want the world to know the root of her problems.”
Dina Lohan (WENN) and Michael Lohan (WENN) have been locked in a war of words over daughter Lindsay for years
The actress returned to work last year in TV movie 'Liz & Dick' after a three year hiatus and while it looked for a while that her life was back on track, continual run-ins with the law and her parents made it another dramatic 12 months for the actress.
Revealing just why she decided to make public the details of her difficult marriage, Dina said “[I've come forward now to] set the record straight. I need to make the world aware that Lindsay is messed up because her father is messed up.”
But Michael, it appears is having none of it, with the US newspaper claiming he insists his ex-wife is just trying to deflect blame for her own part in Lilo's problems.
NYDN quoted him as saying: “She’s bringing this up now because she’s drinking and partying with Lindsay. And she keeps robbing Lindsay,” Adding: “She is the devil.”
