In a new interview, Lindsay Lohan has made it very clear that she is NOT back together with Egor Tarabasov.
And for a few very good reasons.
Speaking to Russian television’s Channel One, Lohan said she ended her engagement to Tarabasov because she grew afraid for her life around him.
In early August, video emerged of an ugly confrontation between Lindsay and Egor.
In the footage, Lohan leaps out of a Jeep with Tarabasov’s cell phone while wearing a bathing suit.
She is then chased down by her then-fiance, who tries to take the phone out of her hands.
Now, via this Russian Q&A, Lohan has elaborated on the sort of dangers she faced while in a relationship with Tarabasov.
"I went to bed and he broke into my house. He started strangling me," she claims, adding in detail:
"I feared that Egor may splash acid in my face. I jumped out to the balcony and shouted with all my force, ‘He’s trying to kill me, call the police!’
"I am lucky to come to Moscow to speak."
This is not the first time Lohan has made this accusation against Tarabasov.
In late July, neighbors of Lohan’s in London were woken up by the actress (can we still refer to her as that?) screaming on her balcony.
She also said at that time that Tarabasov had strangled her and was trying to murder her.
In another video, this one obtained by The Sun, Lohan is spotted in the corner of her balcony, yelling to no one in particular:
“He just strangled me. He almost killed me. Please please please. He just strangled me.
One could also hear Lohan taunting Egor on this video.
“Do it. I dare you again. You’re f-ckig crazy. You sick f*ck," she bellowed. You need help. It’s my house get out of my house."
Not long after these incidents, a photo of Lohan appeared to depict a giant bruise on her arm.
Here it is:
Despite these allegations of abuse, there had been talk of late that Lohan was still with Tarabasov.
Heck, there had been talk that Lohan was pregnant with Tarabasov’s baby.
Neither of these rumors appears to be true.
In response to Lohan reiterating the claim that he attempted to end her life, Tarabasov released a statement on Wednesday via the Daily Mail.
"It has come to my attention that my former fiancée, Lindsay Lohan, is planning a new smear campaign against me in the Russian and international media," he said.
"My relationship with Lindsay came to an end in July 2016.
"In the weeks that followed, there were numerous attempts to discredit my name by inaccurately portraying the nature of our relationship, publishing distorted facts, and making false accusations."
It certainly feels like a very long time ago when Lohan and Tarabasov happily posed for pictures such as the one below, doesn’t it?
Back when Lohan first railed against Tarabasov, he says in this statement that he chose to take the higher road.
"I decided not to address those harmful and false statements at that time. As an international businessman, I aim to maintain a low profile and concentrate on developing my business.
"I also chose to keep my silence out of respect for Lindsay."
But now? Now that Lohan has gone on another record with abuse assertions?
"Today, I would like to state that all accusations made, and about to be made, by Lindsay against me are not true," Ego said.
"I refuse to be dragged into the media storm created in the aftermath of our breakup. I will not be making any more statements with regards to my former relationship with Lindsay, but I will use all possible legal means to protect my name and reputation."
Lohan and Tarabosov started dating in 2015 and got engaged in Apri
In July, Lohan went on a social media rant against her fiance, accusing him of cheating on her.
“Honey, come home, please," she Tweeted, later adding:
"I guess I was the same at 23… S—ty time-it changes at 26/27 @e2505t thanks for not coming home tonight. Fame changes people."
She also made references to Egor being with a "Russian hooker."
Lohan later apologized for airing this grievance in public, although this was pretty clearly the beginning of the end for the couple.
We’re shocked that Lindsay Lohan was involved in such a tumultuous relationship.
(In all seriousness, though, if Tarabasov laid a hand on her, he’s completely in the wrong.)
