Dina Lohan Has Relied On Lindsay Lohan's Support For Years, Says Source

Lindsay Lohan and her mother Dina have kissed and made up after a recent nasty fight that resulted in the cops being called. However, the roots of the problems in this mother/daughter relationship have not been addressed. And until they are, friends warn we should expect more fireworks.

“It all comes down to money and partying,” a Lohan family friend tells me. “Dina is a party girl and Lindsay has begged her to get help. She is trying very hard to change her life and has not been drinking. Now she wants her mom to do the same.

Additionally, money has been an issue in the relationship for some time. Lindsay has admitted she gave her mother $40,000 to make sure she didn’t lose her house.

“Dina doesn’t have a steady job or income. Lindsay has been supporting her family for years,” a friend tells me. “This is what families do. They support each other. Dina can’t get a job selling insurance and has no marketable skills. She spent years looking after Lindsay and now it's her turn to look after her mom.”

TMZ has obtained court documents showing JPMorgan Chase Bank filed in 2010 to foreclose on the family home on Long Island after the Lohans fell behind on payments.

“At the end of the day, Lindsay loves her mother and wants her to get help,” reveals one insider. “It is breaking Lindsay's heart that all of this has been made so public.”

Dina Lohan did not return calls for comment.
