Lindsay Lohan's mother, Dina Lohan, has released two photographs to prove she experienced domestic violence in a bid to back up her claims that she suffered years of physical abuse at the hands of her ex-husband Michael Lohan. In the photos she has a black eye while holding Lindsay as a baby. According to Entertainment Tonight
the socialite released the shocking images to back up her recent allegations that her 26-year-old daughter is "so screwed up" because of her tumultuous relationship with her father and that the hard partying actress regularly witnessed violent domestic abuse as a child. Earlier this week she said: "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. Lindsay saw all the beatings and all the abuse. She said, 'Stay, mommy, don't leave'." Dina said the abuse culminated in a horrific rape on 14 February 1990 - which allegedly occurred while a young Lindsay was sleeping nearby - and she has gathered medical and police records in order to prove her story. Michael insists he never deliberately hurt Dina. He said: "Dina] hit me with an ice tray, and I turned around and swung...I didn't punch her. I didn't do anything deliberately to attack her. I swung out of reflex...she's twisting everything."
