Lindsay Lohan's mother DINA is divorcing her husband MICHAEL after 19 years
Dina filed for divorce at New York's Nassau County Supreme Court on
Lindsay's spokeswoman LESLIE SLOANE ZELNICK, who says the singer supports
her mother's decision, states, "Dina believes for the good of her family, and
hopefully Michael's long-term goal at sobriety, that the end of this marriage
quickly and painlessly."
Dina, 42, who has an order of protection out against her 44-year-old
husband, adds, "I want this to move quickly. I wish him the best and I just
want to move on."
The order of protection stems from a fistfight between Michael and Dina's
brother during a party at the family's Long Island home in May (04). Michael
maintained that his brother-in-law was responsible for the fight.
He also was arrested in June (04) after allegedly failing to pay a $3,800
(GBP2,000) bill for several suites at a posh Long Island hotel, and faced
assault charges in Manhattan for allegedly swearing at a sanitation worker
whose truck was
blocking his car and punching him in the face.
