Lindsay Lohan has done a lot of things, but snorting lines of cocaine with her mother Dina Lohan is not one of them.

After a commentator on FOX News recently claimed that Lohan’s “mom is doing cocaine with her,” RadarOnline.com has learned that the actress had her attorneys send a blistering legal letter to network head Roger Ailes demanding an apology and retraction.

In the letter, a copy of which was exclusively obtained by Radar, Lohan’s attorney Mark Heller notes that “on February 4, 2014, the FOX News Channel broadcasted a blatantly false, malicious, defamatory and reckless statement on the program entitled Great American Panel hosted by Sean Hannity.”

“The outrageously slanderous and defamatory statement was made by FOX News Channel’s guest Michelle Fields,” Heller explained.

“During the show’s broadcast, she inappropriately and shockingly stated, unequivocally and as a matter of fact, that ‘Lindsay Lohan’s mom is doing cocaine with her’ – which statement is false.

Making matters worse, Heller claimed, the comment was made as part of a show dedicated to “substance abuse in Hollywood and celebrity deaths,” and followed “a parade of dead celebrities.”

“Most disturbingly,” Heller wrote, “the Show and commentary seemed to maliciously foreshadow to the viewers that Commentators could ‘see it coming’ [that] Lindsay Lohan might inevitably become the next icon to join the infamous obituary list.”

The clip was later “repeated and amplified” online, Heller claimed, “thereby causing further and additional damage.”

Claiming that “the persistent broadcasting and publishing of this outrageous and defamatory falsehood has been incredibly damaging,” Heller demanded “immediate broadcast and publication of an apology and retraction, in as prominent a broadcast and publication fashion as the original… in order to try to mitigate the substantial damages.”

He also wants Fox News Channel to remove the associated blog post and to “not repeat the false and defamatory statement in any future broadcasts or publications.”

Lohan, 27, has claimed she is sober after yet another stint in rehab last year, despite frequent sightings at nightclubs in the United States and abroad.

She’s previously admitted to doing cocaine “four or five times” before kicking the habit.

Her dad, Michael Lohan, also previously accused her of doing cocaine with her mother, a claim which Heller has insisted is a “falsehood.”
