The drama doesn’t stop for the Lohan family! Immediately following Lindsay’s incarceration, her father, Michael Lohan, is being accused of attacking former fiancee Kate Major!
UPDATE: Michael’s representative has released a new statement regarding the accusations made against him by Kate: “It was widely and incorrectly reported today that Michael Lohan was charged with a crime. Though Michael Lohan has not yet been served with any summons, I have reviewed the second degree harassment offense charge that has been filed and made public. Second degree harassment, if proved, is a violation, not a crime. It is not even a misdemeanor. Most often, second degree harassment violations are resolved by the payment of a fine of up to $250. Second degree harassment is the lowest level charge that can be brought in connection with an alleged domestic violence incident, when there are no substantial physical injuries alleged, which is the case here. Michael Lohan continues to maintain that he is 100% innocent.”
Is every member of the Lohan clan a hot mess? Right on the heels of Lindsay Lohan’s July 20 imprisonment, her dad is having his own legal troubles. 50-year-old Michael Lohan allegedly attacked his fiancee, Kate Major, during an altercation at their Southampton home July 19 when he threw her off a chair and kicked her in the face. Michael is now being charged with 2nd degree harassment and will be arraigned on Aug. 18.
Michael’s hotshot attorney, Lisa Bloom just released a statement saying: “Michael Lohan 100 per cent denies each and every one of Kate Major’s allegations. He has never threatened to harm her, never assaulted her, and never physically abused her in any way.”
Lisa goes on to say, “Kate was heavily intoxicated during the verbal argument between Michael and Kate in the early afternoon on Monday. Michael Lohan has been clean and sober for six years.”
If the accusations are true, this would mean that Michael domestically assaulted Kate the day BEFORE Lindsay began her 90 day jail sentence at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif.
“Michael Lohan is fully cooperating with the police investigation,” says Lisa. “No charges have been filed. He expects to be fully vindicated.”
