Lohan To 'Han Combat

Ex-husband and wife Michael Lohan and Dina Lohan met today in New York family court to discuss the terms regarding visitation of their youngest children Ali and Cody Lohan. Here are pics of the parents arriving separately at a Nassau County courthouse earlier today:

Lindsay Lohan's divorced parents met in family court in New York on Tuesday to discuss visitation with their younger children Ali and Cody. After spending part of the morning in private talks, Judge Stacey Bennett said in open court: "I'm encouraged to hear that the parties and counsel are working at ways to repair the relationship between the children and the father." Michael Lohan, 48, and Dina Lohan, 45, reached a settlement in their contentious divorce last summer. But other issues remained to be worked out, including parental access to their minor children – Ali, 14, who costars with her mother in a reality TV series, and brother Cody, 11.

I guess Michael Lohan wants a bit more time with his kids than merely having to tune in on Sunday nights to watch them on E! I know it sounds terrible but I really feel like Michael Lohan is just trying to get more visitation so that he can horn in on the sad celebrity that Dina and her children share. I find it very difficult to believe that he is being genuine. [Source]

In positive news, tho, both Dina and Michael presented a united front after the court hearing was finished to try and "plead" with the media to "leave them alone" as they figure out their family issues ...

... besides, Dina wants to have a monopoly on exploiting her family's travails on her own TV show (Michael just wants a cameo).
