Lindsay Lohan and her fiancee Egor Tarabasov have been in the headlines a lot lately, but for all the wrong reasons.
Following an argument at Lohan’s London apartment which resulted in police showing up at her doorstep, the (former?) couple were caught on camera getting into a physical altercation during a vacation in Mykonos.
Now, the 30-year-old actress has opened up about the situation during an interview with the Daily Mail, explaining, “I’m scared of what Egor might do to me and to himself.”
Regarding the verbal fight at her apartment, Lohan recalled, “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.”
Neighbors eventually called the authorities, but when they arrived, the apartment was empty; something Lohan says was intentional.
“I didn’t call anyone, I’ve dealt with enough police in L.A.,” she explained. “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 Saint-Tropez. She said, ‘Get on a plane, come and meet me,’ so I did. I needed some time for myself.”
The former child star also says that she’s continued to wear her engagement ring from Tarabasov because she’s remained hopeful about their relationship, but at this point, she’s not sure she can commit to a future with him.
“I need closure. I genuinely fell in love with him but he broke my trust and made me feel unsafe,” she admitted. “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.”
“I realize now you can’t stay in a relationship just for love,” she added. “No woman can be hit and stay with that person if that person isn’t prepared to say sorry.”
