Photos has emerged of what went down between Lindsay Lohan and her now ex Russian boyfriend Egor Tarabasov during break at the Greek island of Mykonos to celebrate birthday. The disturbing photos show an angry, violent altercation between Lindsay and her fiance, Egor. Lohan admits that the relationship is violent and unstable. Speaking about the incident for the first, Lindsay admits her fiancee has assaulted her several times before.
'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.'
She admits she feels unsafe. 'I wanted to do this interview because it's time to tell the truth,' she says. '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.'
Still in tears she continues: '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.
Now, though, she once again finds herself at the centre of a media firestorm. She is still wearing the four-carat emerald ring Tarabasov proposed with last September. '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.'
She says that in recent days, she has contacted him to ask him to meet, to talk. Clearly, however, she holds out little hope of a reconciliation at this stage.
'I need closure,' she says. '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' counselling 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.'
