Michael Lohan Gives the Lamest Excuse Possible for Cheating on His Wife

Say What!? 6

michael lohanMichael Lohan just can't stop humiliating his family. After years of tell-all interviews about his troubled daughter Lindsay and his own scandalous legal woes, he recently revealed he fathered a 17-year-old lovechild while still married to Dina. But according to MiLo, he didn't technically cheat on his wife and you won't believe his reasoning why.

Michael says it wasn't actually an affair because during his fling with Kristi Horn, the mother of his 17-year-old secret daughter Ashley, he and Dina were on a break. A break? What?

"Dina and I were separated and living separately at the time for 8 months," he told TMZ. But I have to ask, can married people really be on a break? They were still legally married, and if that is the case, wouldn't sex with any other person constitute an affair? It's not even as though they were in the midst of divorce proceedings. Clearly they worked through their problems. Dina and Michael got back together and had another child -- Lindsay's little brother Cody, who is now 16.

Of course these comments remind Friends fans of the famous Ross/Rachel feud after he had sex with a woman while they were on a "break." And, to be honest, I think it can be a legitimate excuse for people who are just dating casually. But if you are in a long-term relationship or married, there should be a completely different bar when it comes to fidelity.

Sorry Michael, there is no way you can explain away this one. Fact is, you cheated on your wife. It was wrong and I doubt you can convince most folks otherwise. Though, I should note, the flimsy defense of that long ago affair isn't the only thing he spewed to TMZ. Lindsay has been telling everyone she had no idea she had a half-sister, but Michael claims she's lying. "Dina has been telling our children that Ashley is my daughter for years, without even knowing the results. So how could this be news to our children?" he added. Well, I have news for you Michael -- given your behavior over the years, it's probably not a shock to them that you had an affair or have another daughter. More than anything, I would say your family is surprised you are still behaving this way. I bet they are more embarrassed than anything else.

Do you think being on a "break" is an acceptable excuse for cheating?

They took a break and probably didn't know if they would get back togetehr so I'm not sure I see it as cheating.

if that is true, then I don't find it "lame" at all. I guarantee she was seeing other people during that break too...

i have to think that if two people were separated, living in separate homes for eight months and you're not sure if you'll reconcile... well, it could happen. if you're not sure your marriage will work, how do you talk to your estranged spouse about seeing other people? tricky situation.

doesn't change that michael is a d-bag though.

It makes me sad that for sure (mom, dad and lindsey) are all at best turdholes and that if Lindsey had not been a child actor who hit it big, they would all either be in: Jail, Mental Ward, On welfare, living in a box somewhere.   It is so disgustion that perceived talent (acting) trumps hard work, skill, and other things.  I'm not railing on celebrities per se, but come on, if it wasn't for the Parent Trap, we would have never heard of these people at this point in time.

You're exactly right, CAP. And she can't act worth shit anyway.

If they were indeed separated and living in different households, he wasn't cheating. But he's still one of the world's biggest Delta Bravos.

There is no victim in that relationship. Michael and Dina are equally sleazy.
