Dina Lohan’s Online Love Connection Has Hit a Snag

It almost looked like Dina Lohan was going to have a happy ending with her online boyfriend. During Celebrity Big Brother, housemates were concerned that the celebrity mom was being catfished. Nev Schulman of MTV’s Catfish stepped in and found Jesse Nadler, confirming that the online man was the real deal. Everyone seemed happy that Lohan had found someone after her disastrous marriage to Michael Lohan, but the love was rather short-lived. Lohan’s rep confirmed that she is no longer speaking to Nadler.

Who is Jesse Nadler?

Nadler and Lohan struck up a romance online but never met in person. The pair met via social media, but Nadler was based in California, while Lohan was traveling for work. According to reports, Nadler insisted he couldn’t meet Lohan because his mother was in ill-health and he was serving as her caretaker.

Shortly after Nadler’s identity was confirmed, another leading lady came into the mix. Linda Scarpa, the author of The Mafia Hit Man’s Daughter, struck up an online romance with Nadler in 2014. The pair stayed in contact for years via Facebook, but allegedly never met. Page Six spoke with Scarpa about her internet relationship. She noted that Nadler used the same excuses for failing to meet up that she used on Lohan.

She noted that he’s no catfish, but he’s definitely an odd character. She considers him a ladies’ man, more than anything. The former flames have since unfriended each other.

Why did Dina Lohan call off her romance with Jesse Nadler

It hasn’t even been six months since Nadler, 53, was confirmed as a real person, but the romance is officially over. At least, that’s what Lohan’s rep is saying. According to TMZ, Lohan is finished with Nadler because he became far too friendly with her ex, Michael Lohan.

Shortly after Lohan revealed she was in an online relationship, Michael reached out to Nadler to confirm his existence. The pair had a phone conversation, and everything seemed copasetic. In the ensuing months, Nadler and Michael have allegedly been in regular content, and that just rubbed Dina the wrong way. The Lohans had a  toxic marriage and an even more poisonous divorce. Dina has accused Michael of abuse during their 22-year marriage.


According to Lohan’s rep, Michael has a habit of inserting himself into her life whenever possible. Michael famously married Kate Major in 2014, but the pair separated in 2015. Major entered a rehab facility after the couple’s children were removed from their care. She officially filed for divorce in 2018 and requested full custody of the couple’s two children, Landon and Logan.

Why did Dina and Michael Lohan divorce?

The Lohans married back in 1985, long before anyone knew the family’s name. When their daughter’s career skyrocketed, they found themselves in the public eye, too. The family’s dirty laundry was aired the second the pair decided to call it quits.

In the now-public divorce papers, Dina accused Michael of abuse. She also alleged he was a womanizer who regularly bedded other ladies. The couple shares four children. Lindsay Lohan was born in 1986, followed by Cody in 1987. Aliana and Dakota Lohan were born in 1993 and 1996 respectively.
