Nov. 6, 2009 — -- Those Lohans are unfurling their claws again.

Thursday, dad Michael released to Radar Online a recording (either a voicemail, clip of a phone conversation, or a combination thereof) of Lindsay sobbing to him about her breakup with DJ Samantha Ronson, how mom Dina doesn't care about her, how, quite frankly, no one cares about her, and more.

Later that day, Lindsay shot back via her Twitter feed:

"Its so sad that I even have to share this w/everyone, but I haven't had a real relationship w/Michael Sr. In years. That is the truth. Xox," she tweeted Thursday.

But according to Michael, his daughter is just telling lies, sweet little lies.

"That's a lie. That's a total lie," he told ABCNews.com late Thursday, in a conversation that was recorded, with his consent, for posting on this Web site. (CLICK HERE to hear the entire conversation.) "Everything they say, everything that Lindsay tweets on Twitter, I can prove to be false."

Including, according to Michael, her declaration that they "haven't had a real relationship" in years.

"That's a total lie. Every time she has a problem she calls me and I come out here."

Michael spoke to ABCNews.com from Radar Online's Los Angeles offices. The New York resident said he's in LA on "business" and to talk with the judge and lawyers involved in Lindsay's 2007 DUI case, for which she's currently on probation.

As for why he released the recording, which he claims was taped when Lindsay called him after her home was robbed in late August, Michael said he had to prove his credibility to his daughter, ex-wife and the world at large.
