Lisa Brennan-Jobs made headlines last month when she revealed that Steve Jobs told her she "smelled like a toilet" when she went to bed on her deathbed.

But now, Lisa, who sprayed a mist of pink before visiting her billionaire father, revealed that what she said that day was true.

"I have to be clear about the bathroom phrase," he said during an interview with Hoda Kotb of Today Show on Wednesday.

I really did it. I explain in the book, I was sprinkling with a natural rose water. So, although it was not a particularly pleasant phrase, it was true. "

The comment about the bathroom is just one of the many stories told in the new memoirs of Lisa Small Fry, which was released on Tuesday.

Jobs' daughter said it "took a long time" to write the book about her childhood and her complicated relationship with Jobs, who denied that she was his father for years.

"It was really cathartic and somehow very happy to go back and spend time with my young parents," he said.

"They were younger than me now, so it was nice to do that."

Lisa, 40, wrote about several painful times with her father, even when her mother Chrisann Brennan had to call him and beg for money.

Little Lisa took the phone from her mother and said, "Just give her some money, okay?" before hanging his father.

"My aunt witnessed that scene," Lisa told Kotb. "I think it was a kind of small, hard soul."

& # 39; Sometimes you keep things from your past that you do not understand at all. They are small boxes and you keep them for later when you can unwrap them and try to understand what they mean. And I think this whole book was a way of understanding. "

But despite the many difficult times, Lisa also remembers having felt "deep love and admiration" for her multi-millionaire father.

Once included when Jobs sat through his boyfriend's game in the "freezing cold".

"I did not have a sweater," Lisa recalled. & # 39; And only he and I can know how cold it was that night. And he did not complain & # 39;

"He stayed sitting throughout the process because he knew how important it was to me."

These were some of the "happy, tender, loving moments" they were able to create after Jobs returned to Lisa's life, years after denying that he was her father.

"He made the decision to go back and meet me after he was not really around when I was younger," he said.

"But I must have felt so confused and angry," Lisa added. & # 39; It was a combination of these things & # 39;

While lying moribund after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, Jobs was tender with his daughter and often apologized for the times they "missed".

"What he kept saying was," I owe you one, and I'm so sorry, "Lisa recalled.

At that time Lisa did not forgive him completely, saying that she felt "a little paralyzed". But now, seven years later, those feelings have changed.

& # 39; Do you forgive him now? & # 39; Kotb asked.

"In many ways, yes," Lisa replied. & # 39; I understand it more, and I understand myself more. & # 39;

And if there was one thing that Lisa could wish for, she would be longer with her father.

"I lost the opportunity to have more friendship with him," he said. "I wish we had more time together, and I think he wanted it too."

"Because we like each other, and when we spent time together and we got along, it was great, I wish we had more time.

While Small Fry has been a healing process for Lisa, her aunt and stepmother did not feel the same way.

Laurene Powell-Jobs, the widow of Apple's founder, and her sister Mona Simpson released a statement against the book.

"Lisa is part of our family, so it was with sadness that we read her book, which dramatically differs from our memories of those times," she said.

"Steve's representation is not the husband and father we knew." Steve loved Lisa and regretted not being the father he should have been during his early childhood.

"It was a great comfort to Steve to have Lisa at home with all of us during the last days of his life, and we are all grateful for the years we spent together as a family."

Lisa said she acknowledged that it is always difficult to "read about her own life and her own experiences in someone else's words."

"They wrote to me since I was three years old," he said. & # 39; There have been books and movies since then. It can be hurtful. "

"But when I was thinking about writing this book, I realize that people have the right to tell their story in the most honest and accurate way possible."

And, Lisa added, there was much more to Little Fry than just her father's story.

"In many ways, this is a story of maturity of a girl who grew up in California in the 80s and 90s," he said.

"I think it's easy to forget, because there is this distraction of this famous person, that we all have complexity in our lives."

"So, if you're going to read the 400 pages, you have to buckle up your seat belt to whisper in libraries, hanging earrings, teenage angst and all that."

Jobs' admission that he was Lisa's father came only after a charged trial that subjected her to DNA testing. The relationship he built with her was difficult until his death

Lisa's book has been causing a sensation long before it hit the shelves while sharing story after tale of her famous but private father.

She got into details of how Jobs ended things with his mother when she became pregnant with Lisa, and then told everyone "It's not my son."

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

Lisa was forced to perform a DNA test and, in December 1980, the state of California ordered Jobs to pay $ 385 per month in child support.

The case lasted for months, but in recent days Jobs' lawyers rushed to resolve it.

Four days later, Apple went public and, overnight, Jobs won more than 200 million dollars.

There are stories of work smashing a waitress with a carrot salad and telling Lisa that she was not going to get anything & # 39; after she asked him about his Porsche.

He also recalled moments when Jobs was cruel to his future wife, and told dinner guests when Laurene left the room saying "she does not like it."

Lisa said that Small Fry is not only about her father, but also a story that came when she grew up in California in the 80s and 90s.

Lisa said that Small Fry is not only about her father, but also a story that came when she grew up in California in the 80s and 90s.

In a painful memory, Lisa recalled the moment when her younger half-sister, Eve, told a guest that she was "Dad's mistake."

But there were also happy moments. Lisa said she always felt a strong bond with Jobs, and said that the time they spent together was always "electric and magical."

They watched classic movies and played the piano when she visited her house as a child, and he often took her out on skates.

And, when he was 27 years old and on vacation with his father in the town of Bono in southern France, he finally admitted that he had given it the name of an early Apple computer.

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

"Yes, it was," Jobs responded.

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

Days before he died, Jobs admitted that he wished he could "come back" and change the way he treated her.

"I did not spend enough time with you when you were little," he said. I wish we had more time … now it's too late. "
