The mother of actress-singer Lindsay Lohan has filed for divorce, a spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday.
Dina Lohan filed for divorce from Michael Lohan in Nassau County Supreme Court Tuesday, said Leslie Sloane Zelnick, spokeswoman for Lindsay Lohan.
“Dina believes for the good of her family, and hopefully Michael’s long-term goal at sobriety, that the end of this marriage should happen quickly and painlessly,” according to a statement provided by Sloane Zelnick.
Messages left at the offices of Michael Lohan’s lawyer weren’t immediately returned.
Michael Lohan was charged with assaulting his brother-in-law at a May 23 first communion party at the family’s Long Island home. He maintained that his brother-in-law was responsible for the fight.
He also was arrested on June 29 after allegedly skipping out on a $3,800 bill for several suites at a posh Long Island hotel and faced assault charges in Manhattan for allegedly swearing at a sanitation worker whose truck was blocking his car and punching him in the face.
Lindsay Lohan, 18, recently released her debut album, “Speak.” Her screen credits include “The Parent Trap,” “Freaky Friday,” “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” “Mean Girls” and the upcoming “Herbie: Fully Loaded.”
