This week the man in the middle of some of the most scandalous Lohan drama was not patriarch Michael but rather Former Head of Sony Music, Tommy Mottola. In a tweet that has been attributed to a hacker on Michael Lohans account was an accusation that the powerful man had an affair with a then 17 year old Lindsay Lohan.Lindsay offered this denial about her father " why wouldn’t he lie on Twitter, and everywhere else!"
Before we deal with this scandal let's move reverse time for a bit. Back in the 70's Tommy converted to Judaism and married Lisa Clark. The couple appeared to be happy until a soon to be superstar came roaring into their lives. In 1992 Lisa and Tommy divorced and within months in 1993 Tommy married Mariah Carey.
Mariah and Tommy were only married a short time. The marriage was not a happy one for Mariah who told Allure magazine "I longed for someone to come kidnap me back then. I used to fantasise about that a lot. I'd have my pocketbook with me at all times in case I had to make an escape." Rumors that Tommy would spy on her and told servants not to look his bride in the eye have yet to be confirmed but they were not denied either.
They seperated in 1997, with the divorce being finalized a year later. After his second divorce and before his third marriage he dated a variety of women, including Jennifer Lopez. He was credited with helping her get her music career off the ground. That help though has landed him and her as the main suspects in the MV blind item. The blind says in essence a back up singer was singing tracks for the 'real' star because the back up singer didn't have the right look. She was paid handsomely for the job but then the checks stopped coming in and she went to CDAN runner Enty Lawyer and had him help her take care of the problem. It was soon settled, and it became the most popular blind item over at CDAN. For a while popular guessed included Shania Twain and Britney Spears, however clues soon pointed to Jennifer Lopez and Tommy as the orchestrator. Only 4 people know if this guess is correct and they are not talking.
After his string of high profile girlfriends, he settled down with Mexican singing star Thalia in 2000. In 2002 the king of pop Michael Jackson accused Tommy of being a racist. It started small "Tommy Mottola is a devil." then Michael started expounding on his immense displeasure with Tommy "mean ... a racist ... and very, very, very devilish."
2003 is when Tommy is accused of having the affair with a then 17 year old Lindsay Lohan. It was during this time that the troubled starlet was recording her first album which Tommy was an executive producer on. A year later in 2004 it was widely reported that Thalia had filed for divorce. The singer quickly tries to squash those rumors but they never went away.
Only time will tell if Tommy will ever confess to alleged affair he had with Lindsay or any number of the scandals that have rocked his life in the past 10 years, though it is not very likely.
