Lindsay & Dina Lohan are suing Fox News for saying they do coke together

FFN_Lohan_Lindsay_CWNY_091411jpg_7883582

Lindsay Lohan and Dina Lohan would never do drugs together. Never. How could you say such a thing? How could you even insinuate that? It’s not like either woman has a long history of lying. It’s not like either woman has been arrested while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It’s not like one addiction feeds the other’s addiction in a cycle of abuse, neglect and shadiness. What kind of quack science is that? Don’t you know that Dina Lohan used to be a Rockette? Didn’t you know that she is a brave and fearless single mother struggling to pimp out her children so that they can make the mortgage payments on her Long Island mansion? HOW DARE YOU SIR.

So, Lindsay Lohan has found someone else to sue. And it’s a doozy!! Lindsay and Dina Lohan are suing… FOX NEWS. Because one of Sean Hannity’s guests said on air that Lindsay and Dina do drugs together. You guys… this is going to get good.

Lindsay and Dina Lohan have sued Fox News Channel and Sean Hannity claiming they were smeared on the network when someone on Hannity’s show claimed LiLo and Dina snorted coke together. In the lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — there was a discussion about recently deceased celebs, including Philip Seymour Hoffman, regarding celebrity drug use. The panel was discussing who might die next.

Michelle Fields said, “Lindsay Lohan’s mom is doing cocaine with her” — insinuating Lindsay would be the next to go.

Lindsay calls it “malicious innuendo.” For the record, she’s admitted to doing coke. She also claimed her mom was on coke in a hysterical call she made to her dad in 2012. The discussion occurred in February of last year, just days after Hoffman’s death.

LiLo and Dina claim it was “a direct smear on the character/reputation of Lindsay and Dina.”

We reached out to FNC … so far no word back.

[From TMZ]

Just from memory, I can think of about a dozen episodes where Dina was at the very least a WITNESS to Lindsay’s extreme drug and alcohol abuse over the years. Take that with the knowledge that Dina is sometimes so high/drunk that she literally makes no sense, and that’s when she’s on camera doing a paid interview. To be fair though, Dina has consistently denied “partying” with Lindsay. And for what it’s worth, I tend to believe that Dina’s drugs of choice would be liquor and maybe pills, not so much cocaine.

How about this explanation: Dina and Lindsay would never do cocaine together. Because Lindsay refuses to share.

Update: Fox News has issued a statement about the lawsuit. Here you go: “We will defend this case to the fullest. The remark about which Lindsay and Dina Lohan complain was made on live television by a guest nearly a year ago. We removed the segment from our archives altogether last February and also apologized on-air. At that time, the Lohans did not make any demands for money, and we are surprised they are doing so now.” They also gave us a transcript of the on-air apology, which happened on February 4th, 2014. Andrea Tantaros said on air: “Before we go tonight, on our February 4th episode, a guest made a comment about Lindsay Lohan and her mother that we cannot verify. We apologize for this oversight.”

    This might be the first time that Faux News is telling the truth.

  2. greenmonster says:

    “smear on the character/reputation of Lindsay and Dina” – hahahaha! I just can’t stop laughing!

    • Tracy says:

      I know…. That was pretty hilarious to read.

    • michelle says:

      I know, right? After a freaking terrible commute, this brightened my morning.

      Lindsay and Dina’s rep … haha

    • Jacqueline says:

      So she can sue GTA, but make an esurance commercial? And she can admit to being together and coked up, but no one else can? That’s So Lohan.

      Love the won’t share theory. Spot on.

      • Petee says:

        This will get good.Celeb new’s has not been the same without Lindsay.They are both huge liar’s.Do they both forget their history?I think Lindsay moved to London so she could party in peace and be next to her customers.Her Mom I think also is more of a pill popper but there is no question she has done hard drugs with her daughter.The picture alone speaks for its self.

  3. Katie says:

    And who will they sue for all of the other smears and stains on their reputation? Personal responsibility, Dina. Personal responsibility.

  4. Nk868 says:

    Slow clap for choosing the bicycle picture and giving me Dina’s face in it. Joy

  5. Gracie says:

    Frivolous lawsuit to stay in headlines. Someone please tell me they won’t make money out of this?

    • funcakes says:

      Lindsay has been getting payout from the lawsuits she files. Not all of the but a few.

      • lucy2 says:

        Yeah, I think these big companies look at what the lawyers fees would be, and just throw her a couple of grand to go away.

      • qwerty says:

        Yep I bet when she runs out of money and the sponsors stop calling for a while they sit down together and go through the stuff they could sue for. While doing coke.

    • bluhare says:

      It will be interesting if they do if what TMZ says is true. They say Fox apologized a year ago (sent a letter) and the clip’s been pulled from their website.

    • k says:

      ah, these two are going to be suing anyone and everything for as long as they can. get that “easy” money, “ladies”.
      keep it classy, while you are at it.
      le sigh.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Frivelous law suit to make easy money and hopefully avoid at least one prostitution date with some greasy foreign millionnaire.

      P.S. that first pic is hilarious. Nothing like a fried mom holding up her drunk-ass daughter. Lawds – them two is classy!

  6. Belle Epoch says:

    Another payout to avoid a lawsuit. Ka-ching!

  7. NewWester says:

    Of course Lindsay and Dina should sue FOX. How dare they say mother and daughter do coke together. Everyone knows Lindsay only does coke in the bathroom and Dina always does coke in the kitchen so she is close to the ice maker to refresh her drink. Using coke and having a lukewarm drink? How trashy!

  8. skipper says:

    Didn’t her dad release audio from a phone call where Lindsay told him her mom had been doing coke with her all night and they were arguing? He sold it to media outlets a few years ago, I believe. I would be mortified if my mom did any drug with me. I’m sure my mom had fun in her younger days as did I but doing it together would push me over the edge. I came from a household that wouldn’t even allow alcohol in the house though so maybe I’m a bit naive about parent/child drug use.

    • greenmonster says:

      At least she was saying that they’ve been out together all night and Dina was on Cocaine. Which is close enough to support the claim the woman made on the show.

    • Petee says:

      Yes.He sold it to TMZ and Radar.Dina and Lindsay were having a huge argument in the back of a car.Nice Dad.One time she calls you for help all you could do is make accusations about Dina and record the whole thing and then sold it to anyone that was interested.What a horrible family.

      • Stoner says:

        Michael’s got to be loving this. Maybe he’ll get called as a defense witness and it will make his entire life.

      • jwoolman says:

        Lindsay knows her dad records everything (his lawyer advised it) and she also knows he sells it. He’s been doing it for years, it’s not a secret. She was caught unawares only the first time, when he sold a tape of a conversation with Dina when Dina revealed that Lindsay was physically violent with her. My guess is that Lindsay now uses him to get things publicized and also gets a percentage. She was angry with Dina and wanted the tabloids to print that Dina was using cocaine. She wasn’t scared or helpless, just angry, and she knew the best way to hurt Dina was to call Michael.

        Lindsay plays that scared little girl act frequently, she even tried it in court but all I saw in her was anger- she was infuriated with the judge, who wasn’t buying her “I didn’t know any better, sob sob” routine when she went against clear orders from the judge about fulfilling her Drunk Ed sentence. This was the time she waltzed into court with FU painted on a nail and kept flashing the nail toward the judge.

  9. Kiddo says:

    Meh, they could have each done coke, but never together. The statement does imply a larger responsibility to Dina’s influence over the drug abuse. I’m not saying she isn’t/wasn’t a bad influence, but Fox News is well known for hyperbolic non-factual storytelling. Another reverse Sophie’s Choice in picking the child you dislike more. I’ll go with Fox News, since the damage they create is more universal than the Lohans.

    • Shambles says:

      + 1. Well said.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      Kiddo, my thoughts exactly….Lohans vs Fox News and Sean Hannity….I couldn’t pick which I would prefer to win that lawsuit, since they are all losers to me! The Lohans are liars, and druggies and thieves, but Sean Hannity is a liar, obnoxious, and, in my opinion a little evil…

      • Kiddo says:

        I don’t understand why they would need to enhance this story. The situation is bad enough as it is.

    • mia girl says:

      Sophie’s choice is right.
      I can’t stand Fox News, but sure it would make sense to pick that side over the a*sh*le Lohans.

      Except, I absolutely loathe Hannity and think the crap he spews is the most toxic of all on that channel… so, if forced to choose then it’s Lohan.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah…Lohans are a scourge on society, but Hannity is still worse.

  10. Shambles says:

    ClusterF#ck.

  11. funcakes says:

    I remember that picture from above. It was the night Lindsay was so “tired” Dina had to physically hold her up. She had a glassy eye stare and was zombie like while Dina was doing all the talking.

    But maybe your right about them not doing drugs together because Lindsay “sponsors” is only will to pay for her “medications”.

  12. funcakes says:

    I believe Dina was on the Dr Phil show drunk. She was barely comprehensible during the entire interview. The sad part is she did it for attention and to be on the show.

  13. Ninks says:

    This is one of those times when I don’t know who I want to emerge victorious because I want both parties to go away for ever.

  14. sweetglamour says:

    Does anyone remember the pictures from several years ago when Dina was taking pictures of Lindsay in a hotel room and there was coke on the night stand? I don’t know why they think we don’t already know this information.

  15. scout says:

    Hilarious. Both Fox and Lohans should keep fighting until World ends, more fun for us.

  16. Mia4S says:

    Please oh please let this at least get to depositions! A long questioning under oath for these two? Well I mean they’ll lie of course, but the entertainment value will be glorious!!

    So is her “boyfriend” bankrolling this? Or has he come to his senses and this is a panic grab for cash money?

  17. Sisi says:

    If a guest on a show answers an open question, is Fox even liable?

    • Sea Dragon says:

      That’s exactly what I’m wondering.

    • jwoolman says:

      I can’t imagine a judge wanting to set this precedent. Guests mouth off on shows all the time. Lindsay herself has lied repeatedly on TV, nobody’s gone after her. Not even for that stupid list of guys she had sex with that she leaked. It’s not as though the network had a documentary entitled “Lindsay and Dina Lohan Snort Coke Together”. They went beyond necessity just saying they couldn’t verify the guest’s statement and pulling the clip. The Lohans just sue in hopes of getting a few thousand dollars to go away. Wish a judge would shut them down permanently.

  18. Rhiley says:

    These chicks have spend a better part of the last five years suing people who they think are ruining “their good names.” Fox News and Sean Hannity are scummy in my opinion, but I hope they hold firm and do not allow these floozies to get some sort of pay out.

  19. MJ says:

    Ridiculous lawsuit. They must be out of money. There are old pics of them online that clearly show cocaine and Lindsay and Dina in the same hotel room with said cocaine. No, that’s not proof that Dina used with her, but really, are they going to sue every other blog and news site that also said this? Good luck with that.

  20. Dawn says:

    The Lohans are going to have a very hard time proving this story false. It really is very sad because at one time LiLo was a talented actress and look at her now. Lins has always reminded me of the Patty Duke character in the Valley of the Dolls. I can only hope that there is a special place in hell for stage mothers like Diina. I don’t think so but I hope so.

  21. Jenna says:

    Those. Boobs.

  22. OriginallyBlue says:

    Who ever loses should disappear forever.

  23. Anoneemouse says:

    Uh, didn’t her Dad tape record her telling him that she and her Mom were doing coke together? I guess it’s been too long since she’s been in the news? I guess the better question is, does ANYONE think her and her Mom have NOT done coke together?

  24. kri says:

    Two coked up trainwrecks are traveling at the same speed in the same direction on the same track..come on. They probably have creative ways to arrange and snort lines on Pinterest

  25. Robert says:

    If she is awarded any money in this lawsuit, she’ll just blow it all on more coke. Pun intended.

  26. WendyNerd says:

    It’s not innuendo if it is stated outright, you morons. LEARN WHAT WORDS MEAN.

    • Robert says:

      It was a joke, not an innuendo. Relax.

      Furthermore, I didn’t misuse any of the words in my comment. So the second part of your comment has no basis, moron.

      • WendyNerd says:

        I was talking about Lindsay’s statement? Obviously? As in, “malicious innuendo”.

        This wasn’t even a reply to your comment. Which would be obvious to anyone who knows how to read comment threads properly and can actually imagine that something refers to, you know, the article. And not your comment. Because this is about the article and not about you.

    • Robert says:

      Oops, I’m on my phone and it looked like you were replying to my comment. Apologies.

      Didn’t really read the article as Lindsay isn’t a terribly interesting topic at this point.

  27. AntiSocialButterfly says:

    Because, duh, they are never doing lines *together*, Dina enters the bathroom *after* Lindsey to get the leftovers.

  28. lucy2 says:

    In that first photo, they both look like something that was pulled from a shower drain.

  29. Quinn says:

    Nope- these two are clearly the picture of health. No question.

  30. Jayna says:

    Okay. They snort coke separately. Is that better? LOL

  31. Josefa says:

    Lindsay looks like she could be Dina’s sister. And I don’t mean that as a compliment to either of them.

  32. jwoolman says:

    Here’s a thought for the judge. Randomly test both Dina and Lindsay for a year. Include hair analyses, if you can find a real one on their heads. Take hair samples as soon as they enter the courtroom.

    Honestly, Lindsay couldn’t even stay off cocaine when on probation and undergoing regular random testing. I think she lasted two weeks after forced rehab before testing positive. Dina couldn’t stay sober long enough to do a national interview with Dr. Phil. We could take bets on who tests positive first.

  33. boredblond says:

    I don’t even get this..forget whether the Lohans do drugs, but the person who made the remark isn’t an employee of the network, so how can they be sued? I assume because they have the deep pockets, but by this standard, hbo can be sued for everything Bill Maher’s guests say, or if Anderson Cooper interviews someone on the street who makes an unfounded statement, CNN will be held responsible? Ridiculous.

  34. muchdungo says:

    They’re both beautiful women that have a lot going for them but I don’t think for one second they’re both not raving drug addicts with a codependent relationship. They should go to therapy together.

  35. LAK says:

    Those Lohans love throwing their money at unwinnable lawsuits, don’t they? Plus, they keep going after people/entities with deep pockets who can afford the lawyers’ bills whilst they can not.

  36. Maddie says:

    Lindsay tried suing Pitbull over lyrics in his song about her being locked up so many times (which was true) judge threw the case out rightfully so….just a quick money grab….with them hoping for the “undisclosed settlement amount”

  37. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I mean, come on, they did so many drugs they morphed into one person at one point! http://oi52.tinypic.com/2w6fpxg.jpg
