In an email sent to Radar, Michael Lohan says he agreed to bribe Dawn Holland into not cooperating with police but backed out when she got greedy. Michael says her silence was only supposed to cost him $25,000 but Dawn, ever the entrepreneur, also wanted a sit down interview with Lindsay so she could make more money. Michael’s lengthy email from Radar:
“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 (Chapman) 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.
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.
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.
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 old switcheroo, huh? Step 1: Promise to pay Dawn Holland a large sum once she denies everything. Step 2: Watch Dawn deny everything. Step 3: Don’t pay her. Step 4: Spin the story to make her look greedy. Step 5: Profit? Michael Lohan may be a criminal mastermind. He’s like one of those idiot savants when it comes to bribery. Albeit a little more idiot than savant.
