    Chandra Levy's mother said former congressman Gary Condit has not revealed the whole truth about his relationship with her daughter.

    Condit sat down with Dr. Phil McGraw Thursday for the first interview in 15 years to promote a book he co-authored about the case to tell his side of the story. At the time of Levy's disappearance in 2001, there was media speculation that the married California Democrat was having an affair with his 24-year-old intern.

    "I did not have a romantic involvement with her, and I was not involved in her disappearance in any way,'' Condit told McGraw. Condit has also denied having any type of sexual relationship with Levy. 

    In reaction to the interview, Levy’s mother told NBC's "Today" show: “It wasn’t a made up thing, they weren’t just good friends. I know otherwise because I did talk to my daughter and I found out who she was dating, secretively, because I was able to guess it.”

    Another man was convicted in the killing of Levy, but that conviction was tossed out earlier this year.
