Lindsay Lohan's drug and alcohol problems are well-documented. But for the first time, her parents are admitting that they are at least part of the reason she has struggled with addiction for her whole life!
Dina and Michael Lohan, who filmed Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn, appeared on the Steve Harvey show, he where confronted them about their role in her "struggles." And RadarOnline.com has the video clip.
Pointing out that Lindsay, 29, has been to rehab "at least six times," Harvey puts the Mean Girls star's parents on the spot.
"You know I think when she was little she saw most of the abuse," a contrite looking Dina said. "And so Lindsay did witness a lot and I absolutely think it takes its toll on the children as well."
Her father accepted more of the blame than her mother.
"We were inevitably responsible for the path that Lindsay took," Michael told Harvey.
"Our divorce, because of our relationship, affected it to the point where she drowned her sorrows and numbed her pain."
Choking up, Michael fought back tears as he admitted his failure as a parent: "Breaks my heart to think that she suffered because of the way I acted."
Lindsay's father then sang her praises, telling Harvey "This kid is such a talented girl and she's come such a long way."
Lindsay's parents' tearful confessional will air on Steve Harvey on May 2. Check local listings or go to http://www.steveharveytv.com/ for time and channel.
