Dina Lohan – mother of Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan – has filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy with more than $66,000 in debt just four years after her last attempt to file for bankruptcy failed.
In early August, Dina filed a petition in the Eastern District of New York bankruptcy court, stating that she owed exactly $66,929.54.
Previously, Dina racked up $1,578,049 in debt in September 2018.
To save her then-Long Island mansion, she sought the same kind of bankruptcy as now, but the judge dismissed the case the following January.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also commonly known as the “residential earner plan,” according to US courts, because it allows individuals seeking bankruptcy to develop a plan to pay off all or a portion of their debt.
Dina’s latest bankruptcy filing comes despite her movie star daughter marrying financier and banker Bader Shammas – who she has been dating since 2019.
Lindsay confirmed their wedding in July.
Both are based in Dubai.
Little is known about Shammas, although it was previously reported that he works as an assistant vice president at banking company Credit Suisse in the International Wealth Management department.
According to her petition, the Mean Girls star’s mother’s current debts include $45,051 to the IRS, $15,231 to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, and $4,651 to the Franchise Tax Board State of California for an unpaid tax lien.
Her full list of creditors includes the County of Nassau Sheriff’s Department, Credit One Bank, Fein Such & Crane LLP, the US Department of Justice Tax Division and individual Rita Solomon, an attorney based in Roslyn, New York.
There is also an undisclosed amount owed to Los Angeles-based Penny Mac Loan Services for “possible liability for foreclosed home” in Merrick, New York.
This appears to be because Dina lost her four-bedroom villa when she fell through with this bankruptcy case four years ago. In that Chapter 13 petition, she owed Penny Mac $1.55 million, according to TMZ.
According to Zillow, this property – 1749 Old Mill Road – sold on May 17, 2019 for $1,492,784.
However, it appears that Dina is now renting the exact same apartment as she has given that address on her recent bankruptcy filing.
A creditors’ meeting was scheduled for September 13, but it was adjourned, likely because Dina failed to submit the necessary bankruptcy documents correctly.
She still needs to submit financial statements, a statement of current monthly income and a means test, and copies of payslips.
If Dina doesn’t do so within 45 days, the case could be dropped.
