Ashley Kaufmann is the long-lost sister of Lindsay Lohan. The 13-year-old daughter of Michael Lohan has been alleged to be the sister of the 22-year-old pop star. Apparently, Lohan's father had a four-week affair with Kristi Kaufmann, who he first met at dinner in the 1980s, but she only became pregnant after they began their short-lived relationship in 1994. What might explain the gap between Michael's first meeting with Kristi and subsequent affair is his conviction for securities fraud in 1990 and his resulting four year sentence. In 1994, he would only have recently gotten out of jail.
Recently, Ashley Kaufmann's mother has been widely publicizing that her daughter is Lohan's half sister, releasing photos to the press for wide distribution. The pressure has been enough that after refusing to acknowledge his secret daughter for years, Michael has finally taken a paternity test with results to be announced soon. Lindsay is apparently taking the news of her unknown half sister badly. Lohan's dad says, "I haven't spoken to Lindsay or my other kids about it yet. When I get home to New York, I'll discuss it with my kids. I love them. I'm sorry for them finding out like this."
Despite his protestations that Ashley Kaufmann is not his daughter, Michael apparently sent several letters admitting their relationship even asking that Ashley "just call me Daddy." But time will tell whether the dad with a criminal past is telling the truth or whether there will yet be an Ashley Lohan.
Daryl Kaufmann, Ashley Kaufmann's other father, is a real estate agent. They appear to live in Florence Montana next to a small lake, according to Google Maps (see satellite image below).
