DNA RESULTS REVEAL MICHAEL LOHAN IS THE FATHER OF ASHLEY HORN EXCLUSIVELY ON “TRISHA GODDARD” TODAY, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Paternity Test Confirms That Lindsay Lohan Has a Half-Sister
STAMFORD – November 15, 2012 – Today, exclusively on “Trisha Goddard,” DNA results reveal that Michael Lohan is the father of 17-year-old Ashley Horn. For years, Kristi Horn has claimed that Michael Lohan is the biological father of her daughter Ashley Horn. Ashley comes face-to-face with Michael for the first time in an explosive episode of “Trisha Goddard” airing today, Thursday, November 15 (check local listings).
When Trisha asks, who wants to open the DNA results envelope, Ashley volunteers “I’ll do it, it’s my life.” Michael adds “It’s all of our lives.”
After Ashley opens the DNA Diagnostics results envelope, Kristi breaks down in tears, but Ashley remains silent. Curious about the outcome, Trisha leans over to discover the truth and announces “Michael IS Ashley’s father.”
After the announcement is made, Ashley defiantly hands the envelope to Michael and says “Just to prove to you….” and Michael responds “I believe what you said.”
Through her tears Kristi says to Michael, “You have another daughter and you missed out on 17 years of her life.”
When Michael attempts an awkward hug with Ashley, she says no and stiffens, then explains “This is the first time I’ve met you, I’m sorry, but I’m not sure…”
Trisha ends the episode with some words of wisdom to Ashley, “The thing to remember is that both your parents, who are here, are human beings with their flaws.. don’t push anything, he’s human – he’ll screw up… all parents do.” To which Ashley poignantly points out “All people do.”
