Samantha Ronson's mother is now speaking out publicly about her daughter's break-up with Lindsay Lohan a few years ago.

Socialite Ann Dexter-Jones told The Daily Mail that about the event that led her to intervene in their relationship. Kylie Minogue, Mischa Barton and Mary-Kate Olsen were all hanging out in Oprah Winfrey's seven-room suite at the VIP after-party for the opening of Dubai’s latest luxury hotel The Atlantis. Earlier in the evening Ronson and Lohan were heard arguing loudly, but then Lohan threw an all-out tantrum, according to Dexter-Jones.

She told The Daily Mail, "Suddenly, without any warning, Lindsay flung herself on to the thick carpet and started to roll around screaming like a child. It seemed she was upset that people, including Samantha, were not paying her enough attention."

She added, "To my mind, it was classic psychotic behaviour. I took Lindsay aside and told her not to make a spectacle of herself. She was clearly out of control and spoiling for a fight."

Dexter-Jones had had her doubts about the pair before, but that tantrum was the point of no return: "The morning after her tantrum - and believe me, that was not the worst of it - I told them both that I could no longer support them as a couple, that I no longer approved of them being together and that Lindsay was no longer welcome in my home."

She said Ronson used to be a "Zen person" before meeting Lohan who seemed to thrive on turmoil.

Now that the pair have broken up, she said she wishes Lohan no ill will: "I’ve not come across her since I backed off. All I shall say is that I wish her well, because I have no problems with her any more."

Lohan has called the relationship mutually toxic, though not long after the break-up Ronson still seemed to have affection for Lohan, telling MTV: "I love her as a human being. I'm not gonna sit here and negate everything we had. You know, I could have a thousand times countered shit with facts. It's just not for me."
