Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan “is dropping the Lohan and just going by Lindsay," her mom Dina tells AOL’s Popeater.
Dina says that she and her younger daughter Ali also are officially changing their last names to her maiden name, Sullivan.
As for Lindsay’s decision on her last name, Dina says the starlet is trying to distance herself from her estranged father Michael Lohan, who this week was charged with assaulting his girlfriend.
Dina says Lindsay has been thinking about dropping her last name for some time. But it was only after the 2010 E*Trade TV ad, featuring a baby as "that milkaholic Lindsay", that the actress realized she no longer needed it. (Lindsay filed a $100 million lawsuit against E*Trade last year, saying the commercial violated her privacy; both sides settled out of court.)
