“Mean Girls” star Lindsay Lohan took to Instagram to ask for privacy Monday, a day after she publicly accused her fiancé Egor Taravasov of strangling her on Snapchat. The troubled actress also claimed her lover tried to kill her.

“I would appreciate if these speculations regarding my personal life would respectfully come to a halt,” she wrote to her 4.7 million Instagram followers. “Unfortunately, a private matter has become more public than I can control and I would be extremely grateful if my fiancé and myself could discuss our personal matters on our own. There are more important things going on in the world than our relationship.” She added: “Please leave us be to solve our personal matters.”


Lohan, 30, went on a social media rant Sunday, posting and then deleting multiple posts about her fiancé. In a leaked video, she said Taravasov strangled her and tried to kill her. “Please, please, please. He just strangled me. He almost killed me. Everybody will know,” she says in the video,” which was shared by The Sun. “Get out of my house.'”

The actress was triggered after Taravasov, 23, apparently cheated on Lohan with a Russian hooker who she identified as Dasha Pashevkina. Lohan said her fiancé was mad at her and that she was drinking water to try to get him to come home.

Her father, Michael Lohan, said his whereabouts are unknown.

Michael Lohan, 56, said the cheating accusations are probably true. “I don’t think she would say that if it wasn’t true. She had never accused him before, you know?” the father-of-seven told Us Weekly Monday. “Things happen. I don’t know what their relationship is like. Relationships take twists and turns, what are you going to do?”
