Lindsay Lohan’s bust-up with her mother, Dina Lohan, is more complex than it first appeared. TMZ have somehow obtained a recording of the conversation that Lindsay had with her father whilst sharing a car with her mother. The conversation doesn’t follow any logical narrative, but Lindsay can be heard telling her father that she had given Dina $40,000 so that she could “keep her house.” She also tells him that her mother is on cocaine.

A hysterical Lindsay rang her father and during the call, Dina is accused of kidnapping her daughter. Her dad asks to speak to the driver on a couple of occasions, but she does not hand the phone over to him. “She's saying disgusting things to me ... I'm dead to her now,” Lindsay tells him and later says that her mother had called the cops on her, though it’s unclear what for. She also seems to be accusing her dad of having called the cops as well. And let’s face it – the last thing that Lohan needs right now is the cops on her tail. She’s barely been managing to keep herself on the straight and narrow since her probation ended and has rarely been out of the tabloids over the last few weeks.

In many ways, listening to the tape makes you feel sorry for Lohan; it seems that she can’t even trust those close to her, with her dad insisting that Dina has been lying her about needing money to prevent foreclosure on her house. “She’s like the f***ing devil right now.” It’s not looking good for Lindsay right now.
