Celebrity Journo Files 3rd Restraining Order Against Ex Michael Lohan

Former Star magazine reporter Kate Major petitioned for yet another order of protection against her ex-fiance, Michael Lohan. This is the third restraining order Major has filed against Lindsay’s dad since he was arrested earlier this year for domestic violence. From TMZ:

Major filed docs last week in Sarasota County, FL. — alleging, among other things, that Lohan has threatened to have her dad “whacked” and threatened to “ruin her career.”

According to a police report, included in the docs, cops went to Major’s home last week because she claims Lohan was repeatedly calling and texting her. The report says Lohan called while police were there — and an officer told him Major didn’t want him to contact her anymore.

Major went from tabloid reporter to tabloid fodder in 2009 when she began an affair with story subject Jon Gosselin, a conflict of interest that forced her to resign from her job at Star magazine. She became engaged to Lohan in April on 2010, and the downfall of their relationship was chronicled in part in the most recent season of Celebrity Rehab.
