A second arrest in Tampa for the father of actress Lindsay Lohan put him and his on-and-off girlfriend, Kate Major, back in the national spotlight. But according to entertainment reports, this isn't Major's first celebrity relationship.
Back in 2009, she dated "Jon and Kate Plus Eight" star, Jon Gosselin. According to one report, Michael Lohan put the couple up at his Southampton home at that time.
Insiders told the "Daily News" that Major, a former Star magazine reporter, was just using Gosselin as a meal ticket. She reportedly left "Star" after becoming involved with Gosselin.
At the time, Lohan told the "Daily News", "(Jon) has to surround himself with the right people- people who are there to help you and not just for your money. And Kate is one of those people."
Major was reportedly engaged to Lohan back in 2010, but it ended after she accused him of abuse and took out a restraining order on the 51-year-old.
The 28-year-old Major is three years older than Lohan's famous and troubled daughter, Lindsay.
Michael Lohan was arrested in Tampa on Wednesday for domestic violence charges against Major and ordered to stay away from her. He was back in police custody on Thursday after police received a 911 call from Major, who told them she received a harassing phone call from Lohan.
Officers say Lohan jumped off a third-floor balcony to try and escape.
After his release from jail Wednesday, Lohan told reporters that he "didn't do anything" and that the accusations were Major's way of earning money.
He also reportedly said that Major set him up to be overheard by police calling her.
This isn't the first domestic violence issue for the couple. This is reportedly the third restraining order against Lohan sought by Major. Back in July, a misdemeanor charge against Lohan that stemmed from a fight with Major was dismissed in Los Angeles after she didn't show up for the trial.
According to Lohan's attorney, Major declined to cooperate to avoid a spectacle in court.
Lohan reportedly told police that he and Major moved to Florida to get away from the media attention surrounding his daughter, Lindsay.
