Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael has taken a televised paternity test to find out if he has another daughter – and the results show that he fathered a lovechild in 1995.
The results were revealed on an episode of US talk show Trisha Goddard, in front of the 17-year-old girl and her weeping mother, Kristi Horn, TMZ.com reported. Horn is said to have alleged for years that Michael is her daughter Ashley’s father but he had denied paternity until now.
In the program, Michael is seen to respond positively to the news, getting up to hug Ashley who resists, pleading “No! No! No!” “I just want to hug you,” he says, only to be rebuffed by the self-possessed teenager who reminds him: “This is the first time I’ve met you.” She also tells him she doesn’t “want to be part of the Lohan trainwreck” and confronts him over having been in her life as a child before disappearing.
The timing of Ashley’s birth falls between Michael’s two youngest children with ex-wife Dina Lohan, Ali (1993) and Cody (1996). He is currently expecting a child with girlfriend Kate Major, 29.
