Lindsay Lohan is making some seriously disturbing claims about her ex-fiancé Egor Tarabasov.

The 30-year-old actress sat down with Russian television's Channel One and explained that she ended her engagement after her relationship took a violent, toxic turn.

"I went to bed and he broke into my house. He started strangling me," she explained. "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."

Tarabasov released a statement in response on Wednesday, adamantly denying the claims.

"It has come to my attention that my former fiancée, Lindsay Lohan, is planning a new smear campaign against me in the Russian and international media," he told E! News. "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 continued, "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." 

However, he changed his mind upon hearing about the new interview.

"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."

Lohan and Tarabosov started dating in 2015 and reportedly got engaged in April.

In July, Lohan shared a series of since-deleted social media posts that revealed her nearly year-long romance with the Russian businessman had taken a turn for the worse. She shared a video on Snapchat of her saying, "My fiancé's being really angry at me, but I'm drinking water to get him to come home. Honey, come home, please." The 30-year-old then followed up with an Instagram snapshot of the pair, referring to their seven-year age gap as a possible catalyst for their problems.

 "I guess I was the same at 23… S---ty time-it changes at 26/27 @e2505t thanks for not coming home tonight. Fame changes people," the actress wrote.

She also shared video footage and a solo shot of Tarabsov partying at a club shortly thereafter. "Wow thanks #fiance with Russian hooker," she wrote, tagging stylist Dasha Pashevkina. Lohan then suggested Tarabsov had been unfaithful, sharing, "Home? First time in my life-bare with he/ he cheated on me with hooker."
