Dina Lohan has claimed that Lindsay's personal problems are a result of having seen Michael abusing her throughout her childhood. And she blamed him for the results: "Lindsay saw her dad abuse me - that’s why she’s so screwed up. She saw a lot of crazy stuff. I want the world to know the root of her problems. She added: 'Lindsay saw all the beatings and all the abuse. She said, 'Stay, mommy, don’t leave'." Dina has even stated that Lindsay has struggled in her own life because of this violent relationship which she told New York Daily News, even included a rape when Lohan was younger. Michael has denied the statements but Dina is sure she's telling the truth, even bringing along medical and police records in a bid to prove her words to the newspaper. She claimed she decided to speak out about the abuse after seeing a family photo of herself carrying Lindsay as a baby in 1986 while she had a black eye because of him. Dina told the paper Lindsay was 'furious' when she saw the image and convinced her to speak out. She claims the black eye happened during an evening out when Michael struck her with his fist - and she has medical reports revealing she was treated for 'blunt trauma'. But Michael still claims Dina hit him with an ice tray after he'd been out with friends, causing himself to be wounded with a black and blue bruise on his neck. He then told the New York Daily News he did retaliate by slapping her around the face but there were no charges. And she declared she didn't report Michael at the time as he was being sent to prison for various problems related to his trades. In another claim Dina has also said that Michael raped her on 14 February 1990 at her parents house while their children were sleeping in nearby rooms. Again she has medical records stating that but she decided not to report him for the same reason above. She added: 'Like many victims of domestic violence and rape, I was embarrassed and afraid. I was very young... I thought I could keep fixing him.' Michael has denied he raped Dina and claimed: "I went over to her parents’ house and made love to her. When I left and she called me, she found out I was with (the girlfriend) and called police. Then she called me the next day, crying. I said, ‘Let’s work this out.’ And I got back with Dina. There were no charges. She’s bringing this up now because she’s drinking and partying with Lindsay. And she keeps robbing Lindsay. She is the devil."
