A representative for Lindsay Lohan says that reports Tuesday claiming the actress became engaged over the weekend are false.
“The story is untrue and holds no merit,” Lohan’s spokesman, Hunter Frederick, told Newsday.
TMZ.com earlier in the day had said the “Mean Girls” star became betrothed to her boyfriend, Russian business heir Egor Tarabasov.
Early last month, Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan, of Merrick, confirmed the couple was dating, telling Newsday, “He’s a sweetheart. I love him. They were here all during the holidays — they’ll be back soon. He’s like another family member,” adding, “They’re great together.” A message left on her voicemail Tuesday was not returned.
In mid-February, Lindsay Lohan, 29, posted a black-and-white Instagram image of herself in a low-cut dress sitting at a table with a young man with dark hair and a small mustache, wearing a tuxedo. Taken at the GreenGo nightclub in Gstaad, Switzerland, it was captioned, “I hope that Elizabeth Taylor is watching over me to see this #icons thank you to my #bff @patscar [Patricia Scarlet Uribe] for inviting me to Gstaad for the first time since I was 2 years old.” Uribe, according to E! News, was Lohan’s roommate when the now London-based actress live in Manhattan.
Lohan followed this in early March with another photo of Tarabasov, captioned, “I love him.”
Tarabasov on his LinkedIn profile says he was educated at the Anglo-American School of Moscow and at City University London’s Cass Business School. According to the profile, he is managing director of the London real-estate firm Home House Estates and director of another real-estate venture, Tas Capital Ltd. Publicly available British-corporation listings for Tas say Tarabasov, born in May 1993, is the company’s sole director and has held that position since the company was incorporated on Feb. 20, 2013.
He and Lindsay Lohan met in London through a mutual friend and have now dated for approximately five months.
