Michael Lohan says Lindsay and Egor Are Engaged
Lindsay Lohan’s father is adamant the actress is engaged to her new boyfriend, despite her representative recently denying the marriage reports.
The Mean Girls star hit headlines on April 12 after multiple reports suggested Egor Tarabasov, 22, had proposed to Lohan, and she said yes.
Her spokesman, Hunter Frederick, issued a statement hours later claiming “the story is untrue and holds no merit,” but Lohan continued to keep fans guessing that night when she attended a Duran Duran concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and showed off an emerald and diamond sparkler on her left ring finger.
The actress was joined by Tarabasov, who she began dating less than a year ago, her parents Dina and Michael, and sister Ali, who cheered from the audience as Lohan took to the stage to sing “Danceophobia” with frontman Simon Le Bon.
Lohan has been keeping quiet about the status of her romance with Tarabasov ever since, but now her father, Michael Lohan, has confirmed the couple is actually set to walk down the aisle.
“Let me put it this way: is she wearing a ring on her finger?” he asked during an appearance on Access Hollywood Live on Friday. When co-hosts Kit Hoover and Billy Bush replied, “Yes,” he responded, “Then is that indicative of an engagement?”
Bush then pushed Lohan for a “yes or no,” prompting the proud dad to say, “From what I understand as a father, yes she is engaged.”
He then also revealed Lohan’s brother, Michael Lohan Jr, was also planning a wedding after proposing to his girlfriend of 10 years, Nina Ginz, “a couple of days ago.”
Lohan Sr. went on to suggest he had advised Lohan to enjoy her engagement, instead of rush to exchange vows, like he and the actress’ mother did.
“Dina and I were only engaged for six months before we got married,” he explained. “We lasted for 19 years, but there was some turmoil…”
He also admitted he had had a chat with his future son-in-law, as Tarabasov has a tendency to drive fast, but he really approves of Lohan’s new man.
Lohan Sr. continued, “He speeds in a sports car like I do, with Lindsay in the car, like I did with Dina. We had a little talk about that…
“He’s a really good guy, he’s very grounded; he’s good for her. He’s not a drinker, he doesn’t use drugs…”
Lohan famously struggled with substance abuse during her days of hard partying, which led her to check in to a California rehab center in 2013 to kick her habit once and for all after years of legal troubles.
She has since relocated to London, where she is currently living with Tarabasov as she rebuilds her career.
