Michael Lohan was confirmed the father of a 17-year-old Montana girl after a DNA test revealed a positive result on Thursday’s episode of “The Trisha Goddard Show,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
The teenager’s mother, Kristi Horn, admitted to having a short affair with Michael in 1995 while he’s still married to but separated from Lindsay Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan. She said not telling Michael about Ashley until 2005, after a paternity test she had done with her ex-husband didn’t match.
In 2008, Michael confessed about getting swabbed for a DNA test after expressing doubts over Kristi’s claims. He told the New York Post that he didn’t know the child existed until the mother contacted him while he was serving prison time in 2005 for DUI and other charges.
Michael continued to deny the child and refused to pay any child support until the DNA test result came out.
Meanwhile, Ashley didn’t appear ecstatic upon finding out the result. She was caught on cam distancing herself when Michael tried to hug her on the show.
