He had previously suggested that Dina Lohan’s drinking and his own drug use may have contributed to the substance abuse problems currently plaguing their daughter, the star of “Mean Girls” and other movies.
Last week, Lindsay Lohan, 21, was arrested for investigation of misdemeanor driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license and felony cocaine possession. She was released on bail and insisted in an e-mail to an entertainment reporter that she was innocent of the allegations, which came just two weeks after she was released from her second stint in rehab this year.
As was the case on Friday, when the Lohans appeared in divorce court in nearby Mineola, 강남 마사지 a phalanx of entertainment reporters and camera crews converged on the Family Court complex on Monday, hoping for any snippet of Lindsay news; neither parent provided any substantive update on their daughter.
Lohan is doing “everything he possibly can to reunite with his children,” his attorney, John DiMascio Jr., said after the brief court proceeding.
DiMascio declined to comment specifically on the reason for withdrawing the request for drug testing, but Lohan said he felt the move would improve his chances of being granted visitation rights with his children.
Lohan currently is permitted only telephone calls with his daughter Aliana, 13, and her brother, Dakota, 10. Because Lindsay and her brother Michael Lohan Jr., 19, are no longer minors, they are not subject to the edicts of Family Court.
Dina Lohan, who was accompanied by her mother, Ann Sullivan, was hardly impressed with her ex-husband’s olive branch.
“There never should have been an order,” she told reporters who swarmed her as she walked to her car in the courthouse parking lot.
Family Court Judge Stacy D. Bennett said she is still awaiting the results of a review by a family therapist; that is due Sept. 6. In the meantime, the judge repeated a previous admonition for the couple “not to make disparaging comments in the presence of the children.”
