The divorced couple, whose relationship has soured again after they briefly called a truce and had dinner together on Wednesday (29.05.13) in Hollywood, reportedly got their daughter Lindsay's permission to appear together on a new TV show called 'The Test' on Thursday, a conflict-resolution talk show due to air this autumn which uses lie detector and DNA tests to solve problems, and were well paid to take part.
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the 26-year-old actress's mother received $50,000 to film the show. Michael was also allegedly paid to take part but his fee hasn't been disclosed.
The insider said that Dina used the money to settle her debts from the family's Long Island home, which has been on the brink of foreclosure for months.
Dina and Michael's brief reconciliation ended during filming for the show on Thursday.
The warring exes both accused one another of lying about their past infidelities and blamed each other for who is responsible for Lindsay's wild ways. Michael allegedly took two lie detector tests, but Dina refused to take any.
The pair's short-lived attempt to put the past behind them was prompted by counsellors at the Betty Ford rehab facility, in Rancho Mirage, California, where Lindsay is staying.
They are supposed to be have a family therapy session on Saturday (01.06.13), but Dina reportedly banned Michael from attending.
