Lindsay Lohan says she misread the situation with the family who appeared in a viral video of her getting punched in the face.
Lohan was live-streaming in September when she approached a family with two sons on the streets.
She accused the parents of human trafficking after they rebuffed her offer of help and was struck by the boys' mom.
"I recently made the mistake of having my phone recording live video, and that I learned from," the star said.
"I read the situation wrong. I've learned from it. And that's all I have to say," she said through her rep after the interview.
TMZ said Lohan was in Moscow during her run-in with the family in question.
Lohan told Paper she's been enjoying a quiet and private life in Dubai, where she's been living for the past few years.
She will return to TV in the new MTV reality series "Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club," which premieres Jan. 8.
