Michael Lohan

Pays Massive Delinquent

Child Support Bill

EXCLUSIVE

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.

TMZ and Radar have paid Michael enough for his stories, now he can afford to pay child support. Michael Lohan "World's greatest dad!" (Sarcasm)

Right on time. The Lohans con is back on. No surprise.


Hell you can almost set your watch by this crap.

Michael and Dina are still trying to get on the paying talk show circuts on how they once again are putting their differences aside for the sake of their daughter. How many times has that bullshyt been used.

oh please. he's not paying to make it right. the only reason he's paying is because she went to court, which is the only time he pays, and because he thinks by paying lindsay would let him see her at betty ford since family week is coming up and he's even admitted she hasn't asked for him. the minute she doesn't let him in or he doesn't get what he wants, he'll stop paying again, and fyi, he still owes, that's not the full amount. still a deadbeat, lol.

This family and courts......If there isn't a court date on the calender for them, I guess they aren't trying hard enough.

Is this TMZ the CELEBRITY GOSSIP SITE? I know I typed TMZ, but apparently was re-routed to deadbeatdads.com, the site that list regular nobodies who don't pay child support.


I'm gonna close my browser and try again, maybe I'll finally be able to bring up the CELEBRITY gossip site.

In other words, Michael Lohan just bought his ex-wife Dina $30,000 worth of cocaine.

Well now she can shut her mouth about him and work on herself. She needs a lot of work. I wonder what the son is like. He's probably scared sh*tless to do anything wrong. poor kid

What's Dina's excuse going to be when Cody is of age, and she no longer has ANY income coming in? How about getting a job, Dina???

Uh, TMZ, ROL was all over this NON-STORY last week.

You're getting a little lazy copying and pasting stories from other gossip sites.

Guess we'll have to rely on ROL for up to date N0N-STORY stories.

I'm sure that money went straight to pay off Lindsay and Michael Jr., right Dina??? (remember on the taped fight, Lindsay stated she and Micheal loaned Dina $40,000!)

Good riddance!    

Take a remote island, put up lots of fake cameras all over the place, take all these grifter Lowhans there and tell them you're filming a new reality series called Battle Royale. Then just leave them there for good. Bikini Atoll would be the perfect spot. I'm sure they'll just love the man made lagoon there.
