A day after pleading for privacy, Lindsay Lohan returned to Instagram to reassure her fans that she’s OK as well as own the fact that her latest problems are public because she took to social media to accuse her fiancé, Egor Tarabasov, of cheating on her with a “hooker” and imply that she’s with child.
“Dear friends. I’m good and well. #ATM I am taking time for myself with good friends,” Lohan assured her fans. “I am sorry that I’ve exposed certain private matters recently. I was acting out of fear and sadness… We all make mistakes. Sadly mine have always been so public. I have done a lot of soul searching in the past years, and I should have been more clear minded rather than distract from the good heart that I have. Social media comes with the territory of the business and the world we now live in. My intentions were not meant to send mixed messages. Maybe things can be fixed… Maybe not.. I hope they can. But I am 30 years old and I do deserve a #GENTLEgiant Life is about love and light. Not anger 🙏🏻 Thank you to those who stand by my side.”
On Monday, Lohan’s rep told the New York Post that, “Lindsay believes Egor has anger-management issues and she would like him to go to therapy.” (If Lindsay Lohan thinks you need therapy, that’s not a great sign.) Still, the rep insisted that—despite their fight over the weekend that led to cops being called to Lohan’s London abode, the pair wants to stay together. “They both want to work things out,” the rep said, adding, “I cannot confirm her pregnancy.” Hmm.
The paper also reports that according to another source, friends are concerned about Tarabasov’s “controlling behavior,” which is said to have been kicked off with him firing her rep, Hunter Frederick, whose team would allegedly track her social media accounts and take down sketchy posts. (Tarabasov, who seems to be moving out of their London pad, might be regretting that decision now.) “Egor has taken control over her business” and is now “in charge of her finances” as well as “deals” even though he has “no experience in Hollywood,” the source said.
Another person who now doesn’t seem too keen on LiLo’s relationship with the Russian heir is her father. TMZ posted a series of semi-coherent typo-riddled texts to Tarabasov allegedly from Michael Lohan — who last month said “I’m so happy that Lindsay has found true happiness” — as he expressed his anger over the developments of the weekend. “You threaten my daughter, touch her or if anything happens to her and you will have no where to hide mother ducked like weasel,” he wrote to his daughter’s (maybe) baby daddy. It’s safe to assume “mother ducked like weasel” was meant to be… umm… something else.
“VOME Here And Face ME like a man and bring your daddy and mommy,” Michael continued before accusing Tarabasov, 22, of stealing his daughter’s bling. “Return her jewelry you broke phoney or I’ll take it out of you’re a**. I WILL find you.”

This has been quite a turn of events from just a few weeks ago, when LiLo rang in her 30th birthday in a lavish affair largely coordinated by Tarabasov (the one her mom didn’t make it to because she was holed up in the hospital). Sometime between Saturday night and Monday, Lindsay had (another) change of heart.
“I would appreciate if these speculations regarding my personal life would respectfully come to a halt,“ she wrote next to a now-deleted Instagram shot of a heart-shaped cloud. "Unfortunately a private matter has become more public than I can control and I would be extremely grateful if my fiancé and myself could discuss our personal matters on our own.” (In other words, please overlook the fact that I’m the one who made this public.) “There are more important things going on in the world than our relationship. Please leave us to solve our personal matters.”
Only time will tell how this saga plays out, but something tells us that we won’t have to wait all that long to find out.
