The bizarre and troubling saga of Lindsay Lohan and Egor Tarabasov appears to be ongoing, as insiders are now claiming that Lohan's claims that she dumped Tarabasov are bogus.
As you've probably heard, disturbing video of a physical altercation between Lohan and Tarabasov emerged online last week.
The footage appears to show Lohan throwing Tarabasov's phone out of his car before leaping out of the vehicle herself.
Tarabasov pursues the actress and violently wrestles the phone away from her.
Needless to say, it's an unsettling sight, especially as Lohan hinted that she was "a victim of domestic abuse" early on in the relationship.
So it came as a relief to many when Lindsay seemed to publicly declare that the relationship was over in a recent interview with the Daily Mail:
"No woman can be hit and stay with that person if that person isn't prepared to say sorry," Lindsay said.
"I realize now you can't stay in a relationship just for love."
Unfortunately, if you look at her remarks closely, it seems Lindsay never actually said that she had kicked Egor to the curb.
Friends now say that it was Lindsay's sought to appease those who are encouraging her to breakup with Tarabasov without actually ending the relationship.
"Even after all this, Lindsay still refuses to leave Egor," a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
"This entire thing has turned into such a mess. Lindsay put Egor on blast in the interview to save her own face. But truth be told, she is not done with him."
The insider adds that Lindsay has assured friends that the instance of abuse was an isolated incident brought about by too much alcohol.
Those closest to the actress are reportedly planning an intervention to convincen her to leave her Russian billionaire fiance.
