LINDSAY LOHAN’s parents have asked the press to leave them alone as they begin
a new battle over the custody of their children.
Former couple Michael and Dina Lohan returned to family court in Long Island,
New York on Tuesday (03Jun08), after Michael complained his ex-wife was
violating a previous agreement by refusing him access to their youngest
children Ali, 14 and Dakota, 11.
But the pair appeared to have made some steps towards reconciliation and
Judge Stacey Bennett told the court: “I’m encouraged to hear that the parties
and counsel are working at ways to repair the relationship between the children
and the father.”
After the case was adjourned until 14 July (08), Michael and Dina posed in
silence on the courthouse steps while a spokesperson appealed to the media to
The representative said, “Both the parties want the press to know they love
their children very much. They want the press to stay out of their lives. They
are doing what’s in the best interests of the children and they would
appreciate that they are allowed to participate in their children’s lives
without the press.”
Dina is currently starring alongside her youngest children in reality show
Living Lohan, while Michael has signed a deal to critique it in a U.S. showbiz
The pair finalised their divorce last summer (07).
