Drinking and debt behind LiLo-mum `fight`

Last Updated: Oct 12, 2012, 12:11 PM IST

Washington: That nasty fight Lindsay Lohan got into with her mother Dina on Wednesday, was over a 40,000 loan the actress made to her mum, sources have claimed.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ.com, JPMorgan Chase Bank threatened to foreclose on Dina’s Long Island house after she neglected to make several payments.

Lindsay then lent her mother the sum to help her out and also “to help pay for her kid brother’s tuition.”

The tensions are on the rise given that both are enduring some “serious money problems,” and it is believed that Wednesday’s pre-dawn spat erupted over the loan the ‘Mean Girls’ star took out to prevent her family home from being foreclosed.

“Lindsay is upset and sad about the whole thing, but the family home is really important to her. It’s a home base and if it’s gone she would be lost,” Fox News quoted a source as saying.

Dina spent a great deal of money trying to help her problem-plagued eldest daughter with various lawyer and rehab fees, which likely contributed to housing payment debt.

Sources said that such altercations are nothing new.

“It’s a weekly occurrence, Lindsay and Dina are always getting huge fights that can turn physical,” a source said.

“There’s a lot of screaming that goes on,” the source added.

And often, it is said that a point of contention is Dina’s drinking.
