MICHAEL LOHAN reportedly demanded $100,000 (£62,500) from a series of media outlets to release taped conversations with his daughter LINDSAY - but was turned down, according to U.S. reports.
The Mean Girls star's father is embroiled in a war of words with his famous offspring after leaking secret phone chats between himself and the actress, which he had recorded .
Michael Lohan insisted he released the tapes - in which Lindsay can be heard weeping uncontrollably to her father - to push the star into rehab for an alleged addiction to prescription drugs.
But New York Post gossip column Page Six reports Lohan actually tried to make a profit from the tapes. He eventually released them for free to America's RadarOnline.com, but was paid for a subsequent interview.
A source tells the publication, "Michael initially asked for a large fee - six figures - for the tapes of Lindsay and Dina, but he didn't get any takers.
"Radar Online also refused to pay for the tapes, so in the end he agreed to a deal to release the recordings for no fee, but giving him the exposure he needs with a paid interview."
