Lindsay Lohan who had credited her fiance, Russian businessman Egor Tarabasov with bringing her “peace and happiness” have been shattered once again.
The 30-year-old troubled actress finally opened up about the photos and video of her 23-year-old boyfriend violently grabbing her and twisting her arm behind her back as he tries to grab a phone from her hand in Mykonos while celebrating her 30th birthday in Greece last month, their highly publicized fight in London two weeks ago, and her future with him.
“No woman can be hit and stay with that person if that person isn’t prepared to say sorry,” Lohan tells the Daily Mail, adding, “I realize now you can’t stay in a relationship just for love.” Her comments come on the heels of the London altercation, which was filmed by a neighbor, and in which the actress could be heard screaming, “He just strangled me. He almost killed me.”
Lohan is now in Sardinia, where she talked about the London fight. She says after a night out of dinner and dancing, she went to bed, and her fiance head out to a club. “A few hours later he came back, and when I woke up he was standing over me. He wasn’t himself. He was being very aggressive and he attacked me.” Lohan reveals, “Now I’m scared of what Egor might do to me and to himself.”
Even though Lohan tweeted she was pregnant, and even told her father Michael that she was expecting, the actress now clears up that she is not having a baby. She also says she’s no longer speaking to her dad for telling the press she was pregnant. But Lohan is still wearing the diamond engagement ring Tarabsov gave her, explaining, “I wanted to make things work, but now I’m not sure that I can.” The actress notes she and Tarabasov have recently spoken and even though she fell in love with him, “He broke my trust and made me feel unsafe.”
“I know I’m not an angel, but I’ve tried to fix things. It’s down to him now,” says a seemingly conciliatory Lohan. She relates, “I had suggested we go for couples’ counseling but there comes a time when I have to put myself first, my family, and also think about my career which I’ve worked so hard for. I also don’t want to let my fans down by not being the strong woman I have become.”
Among the other revelations made by Lohan is that she got engaged to Tarabasov in September 2015, but they kept the news quiet until April 2016. She says they even planned to wed in May 2017 in Lake Como, and were supposed to be “in Italy looking at wedding venues right now.” “All I wanted was to get married and settle down. I’ve always wanted four kids and Egor and I talked about having a family,” Lohan tells the British tabloid.
According to Lohan, she loves her life in London, where she moved four years ago. “I walk everywhere, and I’m never bothered… I have a quiet life,” says the highly recognizable actress. Lohan further states she’s no longer “obsessed with Hollywood,” and ideally she would “go there to work and then come home to London.” “I’m a really good actress, I know that. I’ve made mistakes. The important thing is I’ve learned from them,” adds Lohan, who admits, “I’m just sad this has all happened now because I’ve worked hard to get my life flowing again.”
