Lindsay Lohan can't seem to catch a break. The actress who has had a troubled past, to say the least, was only seeming to get things back on track, with Tyra Banks even promising her a spot in the 'Life-Size' sequel, when her childhood home got foreclosed.  

The 31-year-old actress' mother Dina Lohan had owed around $1.5 million on the home as of December 2017, according to The Blast. She has also been battling to keep the house for many years.  

The 'Parent Trap' actress had tried to pitch in and save the house by giving her mother $40,000 back in March 2012.

JPMorgan Chase had sued Dina back in 2013 for foreclosure, but they came to an understanding a few months later and worked out a deal, effectively putting the lawsuit on hold. However, the investment banking company restarted the lawsuit again earlier this year.  

When Dina failed to respond to the previous foreclosure lawsuit, a New York judge ruled that the property be sold via a public auction within a 90-day timeframe.  

Lindsay and her mother had had some troubles in the past but got closer in recent years. “I think that, you know, in life, parents have their things together and sometimes the children are immersed in it and you just have to really step back and let your parents do what they do and figure out everything for themselves," the actress had opened up to Wendy Williams during an appearance on show in January. 

A lot of Lindsay's own troubles with addiction is allegedly a result of the nasty divorce between her parents. “I think we are responsible for the path that Lindsay took,” her father Michael revealed during his appearance in April 2016 on the 'Steve Harvey Show' along with Dina.

“Our divorce … affected Lindsay to the point where she drowned her sorrows and numbed her pain," he added.
