Actress Lindsay Lohan and her mother, Dina Lohan, of Merrick, reportedly have sued Fox News Channel and Sean Hannity over a guest's claim on "Hannity" that the two had ingested cocaine together.
TMZ.com said Monday it had obtained a copy of the lawsuit, which alleges FNC contributor Michelle Fields made the statement in February 2014 during a discussion of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman's drug-related death. T
he suit said the "malicious innuendo" was "a direct smear on the character/reputation of Lindsay and Dina."
On Tuesday, a Fox News spokeswoman told Newsday in a statement, "We will defend this case to the fullest. The remark about which Lindsay and Dina Lohan complain was made on live television by a guest nearly a year ago. We removed the segment from our archives altogether last February and also apologized on-air. At that time, the Lohans did not make any demands for money, and we are surprised they are doing so now."
