  • Michael Lohan has been accused by his ex-wife, Dina, of physical abuse and rape.

Lindsay Lohan’s mom, Dina, is making some shocking allegations against LiLo’s dad and her ex-husband, Michael.

According to the New York Daily News, Dina claims that Michael was physically abusive, including allegedly punching and even raping her. She says she’s coming out with the bombshell now to shed a light on why her daughter has so many issues.

“She saw a lot of crazy stuff,” she told the paper. “I want the world to know the root of her problems.” Michael denies the charges.

The estranged pair is famous for slinging mud at one another, but it has never gotten this dirty before. Michael told the Daily News that Dina “claimed rape” out of jealousy, since he had been seeing another woman, and that the sex was consensual. “She’s bringing this up now because she’s drinking and partying with Lindsay. … She is the devil.”

“Parent Trap” indeed.
