Steve Jobs told his daughter that he smelled "toilet" during one of his last meetings, reveals his new memory.

The founder of Apple did the cruel exhumation of Lisa Brennan-Jobs when she lay dying of cancer because she smelled the pink facial mist that had been sprayed.

In her new book, Small Fry, which comes out on September 4, Lisa reveals how her billionaire father once turned nasty and told her: "You're not getting anything." when she asked to have her Porsche when she finished with that.

"You're not getting anything, you understand? & # 39; Jobs told him.

Lisa writes that Jobs spoke in such a sour and scathing way that he once said, "I'm one of the most important people you'll ever meet."

His memoir gives unprecedented details about the problematic relationship with his father that appeared in the 2015 biopic about him with Michael Fassbender in the lead role.

She says that for her father, her very existence was a disappointment and a source of shame.

Steve Jobs, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2011, denied being Lisa's father and said he was "sterile and infertile."

As she says, in her eyes she was a stain on a spectacular ascent, since our story did not fit with the narrative of greatness and virtue that she could have wanted for herself & # 39;.

She writes: & # 39; My existence ruined his streak. For me, it was the opposite: the closer I got to him, the less I would feel ashamed; He was part of the world and I would accelerate to the light. "

Lisa, now 40, was born in 1978 after Jobs had a five-year relationship with his mother, Chrisann Brennan, which ended when she became pregnant.

Acrimony and a court case followed during which Jobs took a paternity test and still denied that he was Lisa's father.

Jobs, who died in 2011, even claimed he was "sterile and infertile," and then had three children with his wife Laurene Powell.

Jobs finally reconciled with Lisa and apologized when he was nine, but the wounds of his behavior never really healed and both had a tense and difficult relationship.

In an excerpt from Small Fry in Vanity Fair magazine, Lisa writes about how she used to tell her friends at school: "I have a secret, my father is Steve Jobs."

She told them that her father had named an early Macintosh computer after her.

She boasted of having friends saying: & # 39; It's famous. He invented the personal computer. Live in a mansion and drive a Porsche convertible. He buys a new one every time he scratches.

"For a long time I expected that if I played a role, my father would assume the corresponding role," he writes.

& # 39; I would be the beloved daughter; he would be the indulgent father.

"I decided that if he acted like other daughters did, he would join the lark. We pretended together and pretended we would make it happen.

"If I had observed it as it was or admitted what I saw, I would have known that I would not do this, and that a simulation game would displease it."

During a visit to Jobs' house, Lisa got up the courage to ask her father about her Porsche and said, "Can I have it when you're finished?"

Jobs replied: "Absolutely not." Lisa writes that, judging from her reaction, she thought that the story they told her about him replacing her after a scratch was not true.

But the worst was yet to come.

She writes: I wish I could get it back. We stopped at the house and he turned off the engine. Before making a move to leave, he turned to look at me.

"You're not getting anything," he said. & # 39; Do you understand? Nothing. You are not receiving anything.

Did you mean about the car, something else, bigger? I did not know. His voice hurts – acute, in my chest. The light was cool in the car, a white light on the roof had been turned on when the car went off. Around us it was dark. He had made a terrible mistake and he had stepped back.

Describing one of her last visits to her father three months before her death, Lisa writes that she was seduced by Segyu Rinpoche, a Brazilian Buddhist monk whom Jobs had turned to for comfort.

Jobs fell asleep and Lisa walked around the house, thinking to herself that she had "abandoned the possibility of a great reconciliation".

Before saying goodbye, he went to the bathroom where he found the pink facial mist sprayed on itself. She went to see her father and said: & # 39; I'll be back soon. & # 39;

As he was walking away, Jobs said: "Lis? & # 39; She replied: & # 39; Yes? & # 39; Jobs said: & # 39; You smell a toilet & # 39;

Jobs and Lisa's mother met in 1972 at the age of 17 when they both studied at Homestead High School in Cupertino, California.

They separated in 1977 when Chrisann became pregnant and when Lisa Jobs was born she denied that he was the father.

Chrisann supported herself and Lisa working as a cleaner, waitress and babysitter in a church.

By the time Lisa was seven they had moved 13 times.

In her memoirs, Lisa writes that she was forced to undergo a DNA test in 1980 under the orders of the San Mateo County District Attorney, who had sued her father for child support payments.

Jobs married Laurene Powell in 1991 and had three children. The founder of Apple allegedly proposed to his wife, but only bought him a ring after moving.

Jobs married Laurene Powell in 1991 and had three children. The founder of Apple allegedly proposed to his wife, but only bought him a ring after moving.

As a result, Jobs was ordered to pay $ 385 per month, which increased to $ 500.

Four days after the case was completed on December 8, 1980, Apple went public and, overnight, Jobs earned more than $ 200 million.

Jobs visited Lisa at that time, he was three years old, and asked: "Do you know who I am?" He added in a voice that Chrisann described as & # 39; like Darth Vader & # 39 ;: & I'm your father & # 39 ;.

Jobs said: & # 39; I am one of the most important people you will meet. & # 39;

From the age of seven, Jobs would visit Lisa once a month; He appeared in a convertible black Porsche and was going to skate around the neighborhood with Lisa and Chrisann as they tried to cover up the many cracks in their relationship.

Lisa writes that she anticipated his arrival and thought about it afterwards, but during the first hour they were together there was a strange bizarreness.

She writes: He did not talk much. There were long pauses, the thud and the buzz of the skates on the pavement. Sometimes, I felt his eyes on me; When I looked up, he looked away.

Lisa writes that despite all this, she still felt proud to be his daughter.

She writes that her connection to him was a "magical identity, an extra thing that started to sting and tingle when I felt small, and it was like a pressure building inside me, and then I had to find a way to say it."

Lisa repeatedly tried to tell Jobs that the Lisa Macintosh computer bore her name. After asking once, he said: "No. Sorry boy."

Only when he was 27 years old and was on holiday in a villa in the south of France, owned by the U2 singer, Bono, Jobs finally came out clean.

During lunch Bono asked Jobs about Apple's early years and whether or not he named Lisa as his daughter.

Jobs said: & # 39; Yes, it was & # 39;

Lisa was surprised and said to Bono: That's the first time she says yes. Thanks for asking & # 39;

In 2013, two years after the death of Jobs, Chrisann published his memoir entitled: "The Bite in the Apple: A Memoir of My Life with Steve Jobs".

In the unflattering book, she said that success made Jobs a "demon" and that she became the "object of her cruelty".

In 2005, she sent him a letter requesting $ 30 million for a trust fund for her and Lisa as compensation for raising her daughter.

Chrisann accused Jobs of "dishonorable behavior" in denying paternity and said that "money represents reconciliation."

In a letter, she wrote: "I think decency and closure can be achieved through money. It's very simple."

Jobs ignored his demand and subsequent emails and in a terse reply he said: "I do not react well to blackmail. I will not participate in any of this.

Chrisann was not the only woman who became infuriated by Jobs' irrational behavior.

Tina Redse, the first woman she loved, said that when she found the description of narcissistic personality disorder in a psychiatric manual, she diagnosed Jobs as a classic case.

At one point she wrote "negligence is a form of abuse" in the hallway of her room.

Jobs also angered Laurene Powell by proposing not to say anything about it for months; only when he moved he bought her a ring.

In an interview, Walter Isaacson, who wrote the official biography of Jobs, said: "It's not warm and confusing." He was very petulant, he was very fragile.

"Sometimes it can be very, very bad with people."
