While Lindsay Lohan's estranged father Michael Lohan put in his two cents on Wednesday telling the press he believes his daughter has been smoking either crack or meth, now TMZ claims they have obtained the prologue to a memoir being shopped around by Lindsay's mother Dina Lohan, that will expose the starlet's "dark secrets."
According to TMZ, Dina confesses in the memoir that when Lindsay's behavior was spiraling out of control, she was conflicted since she was both her mother and her manager:
"I blamed her friends, her career and her handlers for an (sic) newfound lifestyle of partying excessively. Drinking, drugging and behaving irresponsibly became Lindsay's way of daily living--and it tore me up inside."
It's hard to say just what TMZ actually obtained since Dina is calling the memoir "a total lie." Lindsay's mother told Gossip Cop:
"I would NEVER do a negative book about my child," she continues, saying that "when and if" she does a book, it will be "all positive."
We're inclined to believe her since Dina has constantly defended her daughter and long been accused of being an enabler.
In 2010 Dina told the "Today Show" there was nothing wrong with Lindsay:
"I'm not condoning drinking and driving, but she's still paying the price for what she did in 2007," she said referring to Lindsay's two DUI cases, claiming that her daughter had changed and grown up considerably.
Back then Dina said, "When she went out to Los Angeles when she was 19, I had to let her go and let her live and fall and fail and survive. Without failure, there's no success. I was there in close proximity, but you can't make your child no go out and go to a club and not get behind the wheel of a car."
While Dina might not be shopping around a negative tell-all book, it's not farfetched to think she might have something in works.
A true stage mom, Dina has tried to cash in on nearly all her children. Her 17-year-old daughter Ali was recently signed with a prominent modeling agency, amidst rumors that the scary-skinny teenager had undergone plastic surgery. In August, Dina also began her quest to make her son Michael a star, determine to raise $5 million dollars to produce a movie starring her son.
Check out some of Hollywood's worst parents:
Ryan O'Neal has fathered four children with three women and has been notoriously bad at raising them all. Most famously he terrorized his two oldest children, Tatum and Griffin (with first wife Joanna Cook Moore) as children, knocking Griffin's teeth out with a baseball bat at age 14 and emotionally abusing them both. When Tatum was 13, he took her to Europe with her friend Melanie Griffith, who was 18 at the time. Tatum wrote in her autobiography that she caught her dad having sex with Melanie in the hotel room. In 2007 he was arrested for allegedly assaulting Griffin with a deadly weapon. In 2008 he and Redmond (his son with Farrah Fawcett) were arrested for meth possession. At Farrah's funeral, he hit on Tatum, thinking she was a Swedish woman instead of his own daughter.
Just a few years ago Lynne Spears was the driving force between two teen breadwinners; now at 54 she is a grandmother of three, mother-in-law to none. She and Britney were estranged for a few months in 2007 after Lynne checked her daughter into rehab against her will. In 2008 Lynne wrote a tell-all book revealing that Britney lost her virginity to a high school football player at age 14 and started experimenting with drugs at 15. Her parenting book was delayed until 2008, after the birth of her granddaughter to her 17-year-old Jamie Lynn.
Formerly a Baptist minister, Joe Simpson is daughter Jessica's manager and had her wearing a purity ring until her marriage to now ex Nick Lachey. He is also an admirer of her sizable rack. “She’s got double D’s! You can’t cover those suckers up!” he told GQ in a 2004 interview. In the wake of Michael Jackson's death, he encouraged his younger and less talented daughter, Ashlee, to make an album of Michael Jackson covers. It is rumored that Joe's meddling in Jessica's relationship with Tony Romo contributed to the couple's recent breakup.
Jaid taught her daughter Drew how to party, taking her to Studio 54 and China Club, where Drew got hooked on alcohol and cocaine as a young child. At 15 and after a stint in rehab, Drew won her emancipation as an adult, claiming in court that her mother was a bad influence. Jaid also posed for Playboy in September 1995, eight months after her daughter did the same.
Dina Lohan claims to have started her career as a Rockette, but there is no evidence to suggest this is true. Now she makes a career out of managing and partying with daughters Lindsay and Ali. Also, she smokes cigarettes with Lindsay and defends her skeletal physique. Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Dina brought 'Entertainment Tonight' cameramen to film her visiting Lindsay in rehab in 2007. She executive produced 'Living Lohan,' a reality show she started and costarred in with Ali. She uses her Facebook account to tout her mothering skills and shower hatred upon the Obama administration.
Michael Lohan is the reason the Lohan kids live with Dina. She accused him of threats and domestic abuse during their 2007 divorce. He has mouthed off to the press about Lindsay's substance abuse problems and relationship with Sam Ronson and Dina's drinking, and he threatened to release private text messages to prove that he is the good parent. In April Michael was arrested for threatening to kill his fiance and himself after she tried to dump him. Most recently he has been seen in the Hamptons cavorting with Jon Gosselin, for whom he later served as a spokesperson. In the 1980s he served a four year sentence for stock fraud. Here Michael is pictured playing Joseph (with preacher Paula White as Mary) in a Times Square nativity scene. He is a born again Christian.
Mastermind of the Jackson Five, Joe Jackson ordered his children to call him 'Joseph' and rehearse incessantly. He allegedly resorted to whipping, hitting, and name-calling when they didn't play exactly right. Joe is said to have climbed into Michael's bedroom while screaming and wearing a fright mask one night to teach Michael not to sleep with the window open. Michael suffered nightmares for years because of the incident and told Oprah in 1993 that he would sometimes vomit upon seeing his father. At the BET Awards on three days after Michael's death, Joe used his time with reporters to talk about his new hip-hop recording project. He publicly claimed that Norwegian rapper Omer Bhatti is Michael's son, though there is little evidence to suggest he believes that is true. He recently touted the talent of his grandchildren.
A former stage actor, Kit Culkin was the man responsible for Macaulay, Kieran, Rory and several other children. Macaulay told Time magazine in 2001 that Kit, once also his manager, had been mentally abusive and forced him to sleep on the couch, even though Macaulay was raking in millions for the 'Home Alone' movies at the time. Kit also controlled his son's career choices, and his stage parenting and demands on 1993's "The Nutcracker" resulted in a huge falling out with filmmakers. Macaulay was emancipated from his parents at 14 and sought solace with Michael Jackson at Neverland Ranch.
W.G. and Edmonia Sue Coleman adopted Gary when he was a baby and proceeded to squander the small fortune he made as a child star on 'Diff'rent Strokes.' They set up a trust fund for his money ($70k per episode at the peak of his career) and named themselves as paid employees of Coleman's production company. When Gary tried to claim control of his money, things grew so bitter that W.G. claims Gary tried to run him over with a car in 1986. Gary sued his parents over misappropriation of his $3.8 million trust fund in 1989. He won a $1.3 million ruling in 1993. In 1999 he filed for bankruptcy and attributed it to misappropriation of his trust fund.
