Lindsay Lohan and her mother Dina decided to sue Fox News, on defamation charges. The actress filed the lawsuit in relation to the comments that were made in one of the shows aired by Fox News, saying that Lindsay and Dina used drugs together.
So, Lindsay has filed a lawsuit against Sean Hannity and Michelle Fields, who talked in a show aired on February 4, 2014, about celebrities who died of drug overdose. In this show, Fields said that Lindsay was doing cocaine with her mom. The show was debating this subject, following the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who passed away after heroin overdose.
Well, it seems that Lindsay was very offended by the comments made by the two. According to the papers that were filled in court, Fields “falsely, inappropriately and shockingly stated, unequivocally and as a ‘matter of fact’ that ‘Lindsay Lohan’s mother is doing cocaine with her.'”
“…Fields made the false, defamatory, heartless, derogatory comment in the context of the show’s topic… (It) was a direct smear on the character/reputation of (the Lohans) … (and it) was a totally irresponsible and malicious innuendo … (that) Lindsay Lohan might become the next celebrity to join the obituary list,” the lawsuit also says.
This is not the first time when it is claimed that Dina might have herself certain issues with drug use. In fact, Lindsay’s father Michael released a secretly recorded tape of Lindsay saying how her mom was out of control due to cocaine use. Following the revelation, Dina claimed that he daughter was just trying to hurt her and the accusations were all false. Lindsay also said later on that she lied when she made those comments.
According to the lawsuit, Lindsay and her mom are seeking for the recording of this show to be removed from Fox’s website. They also seek unspecified punitive damages. “We will defend this case to the fullest. The remark about which Lindsay and Dina Lohan complain was made on live television by a guest nearly a year ago. We removed the segment from our archives altogether last February and also apologized on-air,” a statement from Fox said.
