When Lindsay Lohan allegedly attacked former Betty Ford worker Dawn Holland, she was all set to file a police report and have Lindsay sent back to jail. But afterward, all of the sudden, she was backing off and not talking to the District Attorney’s office.
Now, Dawn may be pursuing her legal options, because of a $25,000 deal that fell through.
Reportedly, someone in Lindsay’s camp wanted to pay Dawn off, but Dawn said that it was basically a photo deal. In that deal, she would score $25,000 in exchange for paparazzi photos with Lindsay.
Now, Michael Lohan is coming forward, saying that it was he who offered to pay Dawn off so that his daughter wouldn’t have to suffer through any more jail time. In a letter, he says, “I am coming forward without regret, to tell the truth about the Dan Holland situation with my daughter. Lindsay. From the night of this occurrence, I have been aware of the entire situation. Dawn DID assault Lindsay while demanding a urine (test) and took it to another level when Lindsay demanded the phone. Since then, Dawn has had her attorney meet with me, negotiate with me and even propose a ‘deal’ with me, her lawyer and Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Holly and while I agreed to Dawn Holland’s initial ‘number’, to procure financial stability due to getting fired, she got greedy and took it to another level.”
He went on to say, “Dawn DEMANDED that Lindsay agree to a sit down interview to make ‘amends’ for the sake of the public NOT because Dawn wanted to set the record straight, but because she negotiated a deal to make more money from the interview.”
He went on, “When Lindsay said that amends don’t need to be a public thing, and she would NOT do it publicly, Dawn fired her lawyer and hired another one out of vengeance. With Dawn Holland’s record for abuse, her assault charges, her credibility and desire for money, I believe that he courts and public will see, that this is a woman, who motives and intentions (sic), to set Lindsay up, so she could have financial gain.”
He added, “If she really was or is in “recovery”, she would seek it in an emotional way, rather than financial. If this was any other person, in the same situation, Dawn, nor the authorities would ever pursue it in this fashion.”
The D.A. is probably going to go after Lindsay on the battery charge now that Dawn’s not getting paid. Do you think she’s going to do jail time?
