Lindsay Lohan posted a bunch of crazy tweets and Instagram photos last month accusing her fiance, Russian millionaire Egor Tarabasov, of cheating on her. Then a video surfaced in which Lilo can be heard screaming that Tarabasov tried to strangle her, and NOW photos have hit the web showing what looks like an assault taking place during the couple’s vacation in Greece last month, and Lilo has revealed in an exclusive interview that Tarabasov had been violent with her several times before.
“I realize now you can’t stay in a relationship just for love,” she told the Daily Mail. “No woman can be hit and stay with that person if that person isn’t prepared to say sorry.”
On the fight that was captured on video, a tearful Lilo says:
- “Egor and I had been out for dinner. We danced, it was fun. When we got home I went to bed and Egor went out. 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. I wanted to do this interview because it’s time to tell the truth. There have been so many lies printed about me recently. I’ve kept quiet for so long but now I’m scared of what Egor might do to me and to himself. It’s not the first time. That’s the problem. But this time, someone saw. I didn’t call anyone, I’ve dealt with enough police in LA. I just left the house and went to the Connaught [Hotel] for the night. I contacted my good friend [Israeli socialite] Hofit Golan who was in St Tropez. She said, ‘Get on a plane, come and meet me,’ so I did. I needed some time for myself. I’ve spent the past week fishing on my friend Marco Mavilla’s yacht with his lovely family in Sardinia.”
Still, the actress showed up to the interview wearing the four-carat emerald ring Tarabasov gave her last September when he proposed. “I haven’t taken it off, even after all this,” she says. “The truth is, I wanted to make things work, but now I’m not sure that I can. I need closure. I genuinely fell in love with him but 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. 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.”
Sounds like it’s OVA!
