The man whom Lindsay Lohan accused of assault over the weekend is related to Chelsea Lately's Heather McDonald

"Yes, he [Christian LaBella] is my nephew but I haven't talked to him in quite a while," she tells E! News at the Seven Psychopaths premiere. "He lives on the East Coast."

So what does she think about everything that went down?

McDonald tells us, "I actually have no scoop, but nothing good comes after 2 a.m," and adds that she has not spoken to LaBella since the incident occurred but says, "I was happy to hear the charges were dropped."

So was this just something that comes with hanging with the troubled star? "Maybe that's it," she laughed. "Yeah, I think it will go away. It sounds like it all worked [out]."

And if you're hoping to see the comedian take on LiLo for a sketch on Chelsea Lately, don't hold your breath. "Oh gosh," she snarked. "I think it will all be OK."

Meanwhile, a source tells E! News that Lohan is considering taking legal action against LaBella, saying, "It was wrong on all levels for a man to put his hands on her."
