Michael Lohan

Pays Massive Delinquent

Child Support Bill

Michael Lohan
is no longer a deadbeat dad -- not that he's an upstanding one mind you, but at least he's current on his child support.

We got proof he just paid ex-wife Dina Lohan $30,422 in back child support.

And here's how he got there.  Michael was ordered to pay $1,500 per month for his minor children ... but he didn't, so the bill ballooned over the years.

FYI, only one of the Lohan kids -- 16-year-old Cody -- is still underage.  It's likely the back child support also covers the time when Lindsay's lil' sister Ali was a minor (she's 19 now).

Michael paid just in the nick of time ... Dina went to court last month, asking a judge to hold Michael in contempt ... but Michael apparently beat the judge to the punch by cutting the check.

Michael tells TMZ, "I admit I withheld part of [Cody's] child support because I was angry about certain things that were happening ... I was wrong and I'm making things right with Dina and my children."

As for Dina ... she says she's grateful, but needs to know he'll keep paying until Cody becomes an adult.

It says Official Check so it must be true. No Lohan would ever take a picture of a forged/fake check because I believe that would be a felony.

There's an awful lot of "at the last minute" and "In the nick of time's" in that funny family.

I knew mental illness and I know NY State child support-I fought them for years and I will tell you this does not add up. If Michael owed the amount shown he would be in jail and any income would be garnisheed even if he lives in Florida. He also would have most likely have sent this electronically and even if this is all on the up and up NY state takes their sweet ass time adjusting the amount paid-we are talking about 6months to a year. I am not kidding child support division is truly ****ed up.

Jesus christ, Dina Lohan was trying to push a book she was going to write she wanted to title it a parent trapped. How cute. No takers. Lindsay wasn't doing any better. All the L.A. lawyers she called turned her down flat.


Being nothings changed, the paying talk shows not anymore. Lohans pushing themselves on the tabloids to rehash nothing. Always over seas.

The majority of this family should either die or go to a third world country to live. Hopefully the two boys (?) who are rather obscure stay obscure and go on to live a life like real people. With those parents the odds are not in their favor.

Okay, there's the check. Michael Lohan took the picture, which means HE has it. Did he actually send it? We don't know!!

DRUNK DINA ON MOTHERS DAY

Dina Lohan says her troubled daughter, Lindsay, is 'happy and healthy'

LiLo took a break from court-ordered rehab Sunday for a Mother’s Day phone call that brightened her mom's spirits.

Dina Lohan is hopeful her daughter Lindsay's most recent stint in rehab will be her last.


Lindsay Lohan took a break from court-ordered rehab Sunday to call her mom on Mother’s Day.

“I just spoke to Lindsay at Betty Ford. She’s doing great,” Dina Lohan said Sunday. “She’s clear, she’s happy, she’s healthy.”

Dina said she originally planned to visit Lohan for the holiday, but the “Mean Girls” actress, 26, insisted her mom stay in New York with siblings Michael, 25, Ali, 19, and Cody, 16.


Dina said the kids took her and her 89-year-old mother, Ann Sullivan, out to dinner at La Strada in Merrick, L.I., instead.

She shot down reports that Lindsay wants to leave California’s Betty Ford Center after the clinic allegedly took away her Adderall.

According to Dina Lohan, Lindsay, is doing very well in treatment.

“I don’t know who’s saying that. It’s so evil. Lindsay will do what she has to do,” Dina, 50, said.

“She just needs to breathe and find out who she is again. And she’s going to stay there and do that.”

She called Lindsay's longtime criminal lawyer Shawn Holley a "guardian angel" for swooping in and brokering the last-minute switch to Betty Ford that saved her daughter from the jaws of jail.

Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in lockdown rehab in March when she pleaded no contest to reckless driving and lying to police about a crash on a Santa Monica, Calif., highway last June.

Her New York lawyer Mark Heller appeared before a judge and said Lindsay met the court's May 2 enrollment deadline by checking into Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach. But Lindsay bolted from the rehab after only a few minutes amid reports it was in litigation over its licensing.

The "Liz & Dick" star then seemed to be on the lam for hours, and prosecutors vowed to seek an arrest warrant.

Though she'd fired Holley months earlier with an unpaid bill topping $150,000, Lindsay convinced the litigator to jump back in and fix the mess, sources said.


Dina said Sunday that Heller also helped with the "difficult situation" involving the rehab switch and denied any bad blood.

"He's an angel too. He works for us for no money," she said.

Dina even had some nice words for her estranged ex-hubby Michael Lohan, saying he recently paid some back child support and is welcome to meet her at Betty Ford for family day.

"We're going to try to work that out," she said.

You reap what you sow, Michael. You should have been paying your support all along. Is it any wonder why things get worse if you don't? Wake up and smell the roses. You do your part and leave the rest to your ex and children. It is pretty obvious you have been wrong for trying to manipulate the situation. Grow up and be the man and father God intended you to be. And FORGIVE instead of hate. You should know better. "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." (Galatians 6:7-8 - KJV)
