Lindsay Lohan is probably leaking stories about her engagement to Egor


Certain celebrities have mastered the art of stoking pieces of personal gossip to one media outlet, then denying the rumor to another media outlet. We need a word for that, like it’s the old Rumor-deny-mongering, but something snappier. The Kardashians do it regularly, as does Jennifer Aniston. Lindsay Lohan also had a history of doing that back in her scandal-prone heyday, but it’s been a while since she pulled a stunt like that. Or, should I say, it’s been a while since she pulled a stunt like that and anyone even paid attention. But Lindsay is in a relationship now. With a Russian “business heir” named Egor Tarabasov. He’s 22 years old and he thinks Lindsay Lohan is the best he can do. She’s 29 years and desperate to lock this thing down with a baby. So what can be done? The old rumor-deny-mongering.

From Russia with love — Lindsay Lohan is engaged to be married to her 22-year-old boyfriend. We’re told Russian heir Egor Tarabasov popped the question over the weekend, and LiLo said … Da. As we’ve told you … 29-year-old Lindsay and Egor started dating about 5 months ago, and got serious pretty quickly. Egor spent the holidays in NY with the Lohan fam, who gave him the stamp of approval. Egor, whose father is a multi-millionaire businessman, met Linds through mutual friends at a party. Congrats!

Considering Lindsay’s long history of calling up TMZ to give updates on her life and controversies, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if TMZ’s source for this story is either Lindsay or Dina (or both). But Lindsay had to get some extra life out of the story by going around and denying it. Her rep told Page Six and People Mag that TMZ’s report is “not true and holds no merit.” How could TMZ have gotten this so wrong? They didn’t. They were reporting something Lindsay told them. So what was the point of all this? I feel like it was an ego trip for Lindsay, of course, because she loves seeing her name in print. I also think she was trying to prove to Egor that she’s still famous and therefore worthwhile. And, of course, she was trying to drop a hint to Egor. He needs to propose, hopefully before his millionaire father flies in to shut this whole thing down.

Update: And TMZ has a photo which they claim shows Lindsay’s engagement ring, a giant emerald? You can see the photo here.

    Is this a nipple in the first pic?? Is she wearing a dress that’s only sheer right over her t-ts??

    • mimi says:

      OH GOD YES 😀 😀 wtf

      • my3cents says:

        Ugh, it is , can’t unsee.
        Maybe it a flash thing , under normal circumstances it fine but with flashes its sheer? But in her case probably sheer…

    • Snowflake says:

      Omg yes! How tacky. Ugh!

    • Snazzy says:

      OMG I had to go back and see and now I can’t not see it.

    • doofus says:

      yes, the “bib” part on the front is opaque, and the side panels are sheer. If someone with smaller boobs wore this, they’d likely not show (as much, at least).

      but since it’s LL and her implants, the boobs are too big to sit where they’re supposed to (and she’s not wearing a bra to keep them in place) so they became (props to another poster for this) “sidewinders” and are completely in the sheer part of the top.


      ETA: that pic of her “sans fards”, or mostly so, is amazing…she looks WORLDS better without all that paint on her face. younger, even.

      ETA2: and F*CK Duran Duran for bringing her on stage and giving her some sort of relevancy. I mean, I LOVE that band, and this is so disappointing.

    • ladyE says:

      Hahahaha omg

  2. Patricia says:

    I know it’s wrong, but the fact that Lindsay is trying to get her name in the news again (and succeeding, at least this time) is giving me life this morning.

    • partoftheproblem says:

      I always feel so bad for her. I wish she’d stayed clean and her career went the way she wanted.

      • swak says:

        Don’t feel sorry for her. She has been given many opportunities to clean up her life and get her career back on track and she has blown them all.

  3. Pinky says:

    But wait. Didn’t TMZ have an engagement pic with both Lindsay’s parents up last night?

    If there’s denial going around, it’s likely Michael doing his due diligence and doing Lindsay’s bidding to fan the flames of the story so he’ll be invited to the payout–I mean wedding.


  4. NewWester says:

    Has Egor’s family made any comments about him dating Lindsay? Lindsay should give up acting and focus on writing fiction. She would be a natural at that

  5. Naya says:

    Lindsay my darling, all that time spent speaking to TMZ is better spent applying for a marriage certificate. You better lock this one down before he wises up to you.

    Your loving mum and dad”

  6. Lucy2 says:

    What is with this guy? I wonder if his family is freaking out. can you imagine having the Lohans as your in-laws!?
    That is such a rough 29.

    • Meghan says:

      I turn 29 tomorrow and I hope beyond hope that I look nothing like that.

      I mean, I think she’s looking better than she was but it’s just… that’s not 29.

  7. Betti says:

    Of course she is – gotta keep her name in the tabloids! She’ll never change.

  8. grabbyhands says:

    Oh my god-what, are her fingers coated in cocaine or something?? KEEP YOUR FINGERS OUT OF YOUR MOUTH! It’s not sexy and it hasn’t been the whole time you’ve been doing it!!

    I imagine the whole leaking engagement rumors and then denying them is not only to try and keep interest stoked, but also to hedge her bets-if the engagement falls through, then the middle eastern businessmen who have been financing her lifestyle these days won’t have been scared off.

  9. Mia4s says:

    Брачный договор

    That’s Russian for pre-nuptial agreement.

    Just trying to be helpful! 😉

  10. Jen says:

    I’ll believe it when it happens. She’s probably just lying about it; desperate for attention as she is nowadays.

  11. minx says:

    She’s the oldest looking 29-year-old.

  12. Kimbers says:

    He does look like an Egor…

  13. Melibea says:

    Did he lose a bet???

  14. kaos says:

    Rumor-deny-mongering = Hack-peddling?

  15. Skins says:

    This story could have some legs. Maybe his father is Russian Mafia or something. Father might lose his mind over sonny marrying Lowhan. Maybe even put the big hit on her. Stay tuned

  16. Has she been through all the Saudis or did she just figure out that, although they are happy to get with her, marriage is completely out of the question?

  17. Belle Epoch says:

    He’s perfect for her. He’s only 22. Endless money, presumably son of corrupt Russian oligarch, probably has no idea she has slept with 5,000 guys – including getting paid to do unspeakable things with rich sheiks. I really don’t think he understands what he’s getting into, but she certainly does! $$$ for life!

  18. SilkyMalice says:

    She looks amazingly healthy these days, and her hair game is spot on. How did this happen?

  19. RedWeatherTiger says:

    I don’t know how much weight y’all put into “blind items,” but a recent one about Lindsay said that she was involved with Egor’s daddy, too. Apparently they –according to the blind, mind you–share her or have shared her in some fashion. Make of it what you will.

  20. kri says:

    @ Kaiser How about Pap Tease? Oh wait…I dunno. Could be super scary considering who we are talking about.

  21. serena says:

    He’s cute though.

  22. Hayley says:

    Lindsay has a history of flashing diamond rings to make people think she’s engaged this is nothing new.. She was rumoured to be engaged to both Wilmer and Sam ronson none of which turned out to be true. Eyeroll.

  23. Emily C. says:

    I seriously doubt he thinks Lindsay is the best he can do — this isn’t a real relationship. 99.9% sure he’s paying her. Maybe he thinks she’s the best call girl he can get for the price he’s willing to pay. Bonus, she probably annoys his “businessman” (*cough*) daddy.

  24. JenniferJustice says:

    Is that Boogar from Revenge of the Nerds? Pretty sure that’s him. He hasn’t aged at all!!!

    Oh and Engagement hints aren’t the only thing this girl is leaking. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  25. Riemc525 says:

    I definitely thought that was Julianne Moore in the pic. Just shows how much the Cracken has aged.
