AceShowbiz - %cLindsay Lohan% opened up about her highly-publicized breakup with %cEgor Tarabasov% in an interview with Russia's Channel 1. In the chat airing on Wednesday, September 21, the actress made some serious allegations against her former fiancee while detailing the terrifying night which caused her to end their engagement.
"I went to bed and he broke into my house. He started strangling me," she told the interviewer. "I feared that Egor may splash acid in my face. I jumped out to the balcony and shouted with all my force, 'He's trying to kill me, call the police!' I am lucky to come to Moscow to speak."
It didn't take too long for Egor to respond to Lindsay's claims. The Russian businessman, who understandably wasn't happy about the interview, issued a statement to Daily Mail later on Wednesday, accusing the "Freaky Friday" star of "planning a new smear campaign against [him] in the Russian and international media."
"My relationship with Lindsay came to an end in July 2016. In the weeks that followed, there were numerous attempts to discredit my name by inaccurately portraying the nature of our relationship, publishing distorted facts, and making false accusations," he explained.
"I decided not to address those harmful and false statements at that time. As an international businessman, I aim to maintain a low profile and concentrate on developing my business. I also chose to keep my silence out of respect for Lindsay," he continued before denying all her abuse allegations.
"Today, I would like to state that all accusations made, and about to be made, by Lindsay against me are not true," he said. "I refuse to be dragged into the media storm created in the aftermath of our breakup. I will not be making any more statements with regards to my former relationship with Lindsay, but I will use all possible legal means to protect my name and reputation."
Lindsay and Egor began dating in 2015 and got engaged earlier this year. They ended their relationship last July after she publicly accused him of cheating on her. Later, a video surfaced online showing a woman, presumably Lindsay, standing on a balcony and screaming that someone's going to kill her.
