In an explosive recorded audio conversation obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com, Dina Lohan reveals her anguish over a failed attempt to get her daughter Lindsay Lohan into rehab and what she calls the "mess" that resulted from trying to give her an intervention.
The taped phone call, made in September of 2008, is between Dina and Lindsay's dad, Michael Lohan.
"You don't even know what I'd go through trying to get her into, like, rehab and stuff," Dina is heard telling Michael. "She'd like, punch me in the face, kick me out of the car...like you don't know the (expletive) I went through trying to get her an intervention by myself. It was very difficult."
Dina continues, "She's really sad and really hurt and really...despondent. I told her not to go to L.A. at 18...she did. I couldn't leave these other three (Dina's three other kids with Michael) to go get her and it was, like, a mess."
Michael Lohan has publically claimed his concern for Lindsay's life and that she has an addiction to prescription pills and that ex-wife Dina is lying about his intentions to the press.
On Wednesday, RadarOnline.com released a heart wrenching audio tape of a distraught and hysterical Lindsay, sobbing to her father about her life. The recording sparked immediate controversy about why Lohan would publically disclose something so private about his daughter.
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Lohan says he only released the personal audio tapes because he's afraid for his daughter's life, and he's tired of being targeted as the bad guy.
"I admit, I'm being a bit selfish in releasing the tapes," he told us. "But I'm tired of being lied about. I'm tired of Dina and others making me out to be someone I'm not, so now I'm going to prove to the world who the real liars are."
