Much like every other defaming detail leaked to the press, a star’s private family matters are often splashed across the newsstands. Case in point: Lindsay Lohan and her battle with her father Michael Lohan. Her father’s shady ways took center stage in 2012 when Michael secretly recorded and leaked a phone conversation with a distraught Lindsay who alleged her mother had been abusing drugs and alcohol. She also said that the argument with mother Dina Lohan turned physical before she got Michael on the line. Lindsay’s dad wasted no time sending the recording to media outlets who immediately published the tape. Messy. Needless to say, the father vs daughter feud will forever go down as one of the messiest celebrity family feuds. Check out other stars whose beef with their father/mother/sister/daughter made headline news.
Rihanna vs. Ronald Fenty
After Chris Brown abused Rihanna in 2009, Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty failed to reach out to his daughter during her time of personal turmoil. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Rihanna blasted her father for failing to make communication during her time of need alleging that during her tour her father behaved inappropriately and was ultimately asked to head back to Barbados. Offended by the dismissal, Ronald stopped speaking with his daughter. During the one-sided silent treatment after Rihanna’s assault, Fenty shared information about the star with media outlets and even sat down for interviews without Rihanna’s consent. In response, Rih-Rih went public with his former drug habit and domestic abuse against her mother.
