Well, it’s about time.

Michael and Dina Lohan, the horrible stage parents of hottest mess in town Lindsay Lohan, finally admitted that they may have played a role in their daughter’s downward spiral.

While appearing on The Steve Harvey Show, the talk show host brings up their daughter’s much-publicized drug abuse.

"Lindsay’s substance abuse struggles have been well-documented," Harvey started. "She’s been to rehab at least six times."

Then, he posed the question we already knew the answer to, but never heard the Lohans actually admit.

"You guys, as her parents, do you feel any responsibility for that?" he asked, point blank.

Dina went first.

“You know I think when she was little she saw most of the abuse,” she responded.

“And so Lindsay did witness a lot and I absolutely think it takes its toll on the children as well.”

Not exactly an admission of guilt, but she kinda sorta hinted that they may have had an influence.

Michael was more direct.

"Inevitably, we are responsible for the path that Lindsay took," he confessed.

“Our divorce – because of our relationship – affected Lindsay to the point where she drowned her sorrows and numbed her pain.”

In the middle of his revelation, Michael gets choked up and appears to hold back tears when he talks about his daughter.

“It breaks my heart to think that she suffered because of the way I acted,” he tells Harvey.

Cue Cher’s "If I Could Turn Back Time."

As for Lindsay, she just announced some happy news last month.

The former child star recently became engaged to Russian real estate agent Egor Tarabasov, who is also the sole heir to a wealthy retail magnate in Moscow.

The pair reportedly dated for five months before announcing their plans to wed.
