Lindsay Lohan's father has threatened to sue his ex-wife over her abuse claims.
Michael Lohan has set the actress's mother Dina a cease-and-desist letter after she accused him of physically abusing in the early years of their marriage and raping her on Valentine's Day in 1990 and released two photographs of herself with a black eye holding their famous daughter as a baby.
He also told the New York Daily News: ''She keeps harassing me with texts asking for money. It's like she's extorting me or she will keep lying in the press.''
The 'Liz & Dick' star's mother recently said she blames her ex-husband - who is now engaged to his pregnant girlfriend Kate Major - for Lindsay's issues.
The outspoken matriarch claims their daughter is ''so screwed up'' because of her tumultuous relationship with her father and admits the hard partying actress regularly witnessed violent domestic abuse as a child - including a rape.
The 50-year-old star said: ''Lindsay saw her dad abuse me - that's why she's so screwed up. She saw a lot of crazy stuff. I want the world to know the root of her problems. Lindsay saw all the beatings and all the abuse. She said, 'Stay, mommy, don't leave'.
''Like many victims of domestic violence and rape, I was embarrassed and afraid. I was very young ... I thought I could keep fixing him.''
