NEW YORK – Actress Lindsay Lohan and her mother, Dina Lohan, have filed a lawsuit accusing Fox News Network, TV host Sean Hannity and guest commentator Michelle Fields of defamation for claiming the actress and her mother did cocaine together.
According to court papers filed Monday, the claim was made during a discussion of celebrity overdoses on Hannity’s show on Feb. 4, 2014, two days after actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose.
Court papers say Fields stated as a “matter a fact” that Lindsay’s mother was doing cocaine with her daughter. Lohan’s lawyers say Fox posted the segment on its website.
The lawsuit says the Lohan’s are demanding that the segment be taken off Hannity’s website. They’re also seeking unspecified damages.
A message seeking comment from Fox wasn’t immediately returned.
