As Michael Lohan emerges as a new advisor to Jon Gosselin, sources tell People magazine that the Lohans wish he’d focus on his own family and pay the six months of child support they say he still owes — a debt Michael disputes.

“It’s embarrassing, he’s embarrassing,” said a Lohan insider. “He’s trying to get deals for Jon. Maybe Jon can tell Michael to pay (ex-wife) Dina child support. He’s now six months behind.”

A second Lohan source confirmed what Dina is owed: “Over $12,000 is due, and it’s in the hands of collections now.”

Michael Lohan, however, denies the debt. “That’s a total lie. I pay Dina and the kids cash all the time,” he told People, adding, “This is typical of what Jon and I discussed about spouses being vindictive and destroying a relationship between a father and their children.”
