Lindsay Lohan is speaking out against Egor Tarabasov.

In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, the actress reveals new details about the tumultuous environment she dealt with during her relationship with the 23-year-old Russian businessman. After the actress made multiple claims alluding to her fiancé’s infidelity as well as a pregnancy on social media last month, Lohan now tells the newspaper Egor has been abusive to her on multiple occasions.

‘It’s not the first time. That’s the problem. But this time, someone saw,” the Mean Girls star said, referring to a dramatic fight the two had on her London apartment balcony that was caught on film and later shared online.

Of that night, Lohan says that after going on a “fun” date together, “We got home, I went to bed and Egor went out. A few hours later he came back and when I woke up he was standing over me. He wasn’t himself, he was being very aggressive and he attacked me.”

The 30-year-old says, “I didn’t call anyone, I’ve dealt with enough police in LA,” but instead retreated to the privacy and comfort of her friends in St. Tropez and Italy.

Lohan says her decision to reveal intimate, painful details comes from a place of fear.

“I wanted to do this interview because it’s time to tell the truth,” she told the paper. “There have been so many lies printed about me recently. I’ve kept quiet for so long but now I’m scared of what Egor might do to me and to himself.”

As for the future of her relationship with Egor, Lindsay says she isn’t sure how to move forward without opening old wounds. “I need closure,” she said, adding, “I genuinely fell in love with him but he broke my trust and made me feel unsafe.”

Lohan also claims she suggested the pair attend couples’ counseling, but has since realized, “…There comes a time when I have to put myself first, my family, and also think about my career which I’ve worked so hard for. I also don’t want to let my fans down by not being the strong woman I have become.”

“I realize now you can’t stay in a relationship just for love,” Lohan added. “No woman can be hit and stay with that person if that person isn’t prepared to say sorry.”

Lady Gaga took to Instagram to address the status of her relationship with Taylor Kinney.

With a black and white photo of the couple walking together, the singer writes: “Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”

It looks like there’s hope after all!

Many fans’ hearts broke earlier today upon the news of Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney’s engagement being called off, however, it seems like the famous pair aren’t absolutely, completely, for sure, done.

The singer’s rep re-sparked the dying flame by telling People magazine, “They are taking a break.” Furthermore, a source tells the mag that their schedules definitely made things difficult, but they’re not ready to completely throw in the towel just yet.

“She’s working on an album, he’s working on his show, they aren’t in the same state, it was just hard,” the insider said. “They both love each other very much and they want it to work. It’s just been tough with the long distance.”

There was speculation on the status of the couple’s relationship after Gaga was spotted without her ring on.

Last week—on Kinney’s birthday—Gaga was photographed without her famous sparkler on her finger. When she performed at an orphanage in Mexico earlier this week, the ring was again missing. Neither Gaga nor Kinney has commented on the matter, and it’s unclear who initiated taking the time off.

The former pair began dating in 2011 after meeting on the set of Gaga’s “Yoü and I” music video, and it didn’t take long before the public witnessed their magical connection.

“When you meet someone that’s not intimidated by the amazing people that are around you [or] by the love that you receive—that’s love,” Gaga told Fashion magazine in 2013. “Men weren’t always happy for me. It was very challenging to watch a woman be so successful.”

Kinney was The One, according to Gaga. “I really can’t imagine being with anyone other than who I’m with right now,” the Golden Globe winner told Howard Stern in a December 2014 SiriusXM interview. “He is the right guy. I have that feeling. I just know it.”

A woman who is said to be the second wife of popular actor Adi Putra said she is not ready to speak about the issue, Metro Ahad reported.

The 33-year-old woman told the tabloid in a WhatsApp reply that said she was not ready to give any comment.

“I’m sorry. I am unable to give any comment on this matter,” she texted.

News of their marriage and a photo of them at the ceremony has been spreading on social media since Saturday night.

It is learnt that the woman, a single mother of one, is Adi’s business partner.

According to sources, it was the woman’s third marriage. Adi could not be reached for comment.

Zayn Malik may have quit One Direction over a year ago, but he still vivdly remembers what made him decide to leave the band…an alien.

The 23-year-old boyfriend of Gigi Hadid chatted with Glamour magazine for an interview inside their August 2016 issue and revealed the first moment he realized he needed to leave the group.

“An alien spoke to me in a dream…” he said, trailing off and leaving our imaginations to figure out the rest.

Well, at least all you hardcore 1D fans can now channel your anger toward space! One of those dang aliens has to be listening…

Meanwhile, in honor of his first solo tour and album, Mind of Mine, Zayn also dished on a few more of his “firsts.”

For example, he was candid in admitting that his first celebrity crush was Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. “They’re the same, right?” he joked.

He also has quite a few musical inspirations, his first motivational song being “Thriller” by Michael Jackson, which he said with “no question.” The first album he ever owned was Tupac All Eyez on Me, while his first on-stage performance was Ne-Yo’s “Let Me Love You.”

Another interesting tidbit? He’s a huge Bob Marley fan. After every show he pays homage to the Rastafarian singer, and he even admits that if he could jump in a helicopter right now and leave, he’d visit Jamaica.

Meanwhile, Zayn has also been making headlines after rekindling with Gigi recently.

The two had split briefly in June after dating on and off for about seven months, but they got back together again quickly after that. Since then, they have returned to showing off their PDA on social media.

Mostly recently, Gigi shared a photo of the pair playfully kissing each other. It looks like Zayn was going in for a smooch, but Gigi found something to be hilarious, and he instead ended up having one of those slightly awkward teeth-kisses that are always adorable.

“Squish ya,” she captioned the pic.

BEIJING (AFP) – US pop singer Taylor Swift’s love life has become the latest unlikely product on Chinese online marketplace Taobao, with buyers gambling on whether she will break up with rumoured boyfriend British actor Tom Hiddleston.

Hiddleswift “insurance” plans are priced at one yuan (15 US cents) at Taobao shops and offer to double the pay if the couple split up within periods ranging from six months to a year, a search by AFP on Friday showed.

Betting is illegal in China other than in state-sanctioned lotteries, but online sellers seek to avoid the rules by describing their transactions as insurance against an event.

The Legal Evening News said last week that the schemes became available after reports of the Taylor-Hiddleston relationship came out, with the busiest vendor recording 543 sales in a month and one buyer paying 400 yuan.

Taobao, the consumer-to-consumer platform of Chinese Internet giant Alibaba, negotiated with the vendors to take down the items, the paper said.

An AFP search on Friday showed most of the plans had been removed, with only a few low-ranking shops still selling them.

“It’s funny,” said one buyer at a vendor that has had 17 “successful transactions”.

Similar offerings have included bets on whether Patrick Stewart might grow hair for the next instalment of the X-Men franchise and if Katy Perry will win a Grammy in 2017, the Legal Evening News report said.

All those bets appeared to be off by Friday.

Blake Lively has nothing but wonderful things to say about Woody Allen.

The actress has come to the controversial director’s defense before, and during her latest interview with Hamptons magazine, she continued to gush about Allen and her experience working with him on her upcoming film Café Society, which costars Jesse Eisenberg, Steve Carell, and Parker Posey.

“[Woody] creates a very pleasant set where everybody’s just happy to be there and happy to be making a movie, and happy to be a part of film history,” she said.

“For him to have that confidence in you almost gives you the confidence in yourself to just go with the flow. And those are the moments that he really likes, the found moments, the moments that aren’t written but just happen.”

She continued, “It’s really cool to work with a director who’s done so much, because he knows exactly what he wants. The fact that he does one shot for an entire scene—this could be a scene with eight people and one to two takes—it gives you a level of confidence because when he’s got it, he knows he’s got it.”

Lively added that Allen will give his actors free rein to improvise in scenes, which can be a daunting task.

“He also is really encouraging as to why he cast you, so he’ll say, ‘Say the dialogue that’s written and then you can improvise for a while.’ And his dialogue is so specific, and it’s speaking in a 1930s dialect and [with period] references, so it’s intimidating to think, Oh, let me just improvise there and hope that my words blend seamlessly alongside Woody Allen’s. Which they clearly wouldn’t and don’t. But he’s very empowering.”

 

Louis Tomlinson wants to ensure that he spends as much time with his 5-month-old son as possible.

E! News can confirm that the One Direction singer has filed for joint custody of little Freddie Reign from his ex Briana Jungwirth.

TMZ reports that his time with the baby has been “inconsistent” in recent weeks, and that Louis will be seeking 50/50 joint physical and legal custody.

Louis has been candid about his love for his son, and how much parenthood has changed him, and recently spoke about both in an interview with Capital FM.

When asked if he’s ever had any experience with changing diapers, he admitted, “Have I changed a nappy? I’d actually probably changed about a hundred nappies before Freddie because I used to help out with my sister so I have changed his nappy, thank you!”

He also revealed that he was “still getting used to” being away from his firstborn while on tour for One Direction and added, “I miss him, obviously, but it’s cool. I do get Father’s Day now.”

And on the annual holiday, Louis took to Instagram to share a shot of him holding Freddie’s little hand.

In the caption, the singer wrote, “Happy Father’s Day to every lucky lad out there who’s someone’s daddy! Thoroughly enjoyed my first. Love you Freddie son X.”

Louis became a father in January of this year after briefly dating the Los Angeles-based stylist last year.

Taylor Swift and new beau Tom Hiddleston aren’t wasting any time getting to know each other!

The 35-year-old Night Manager star introduced the 26-year-old singer to his mom Diana on Friday, while visiting her hometown of Suffolk on the east coast of England.

The introduction came a day after Swift introduced Hiddleston to her parents Scott and Andrea at her Nashville, Tennessee apartment.

In photos of the meeting, the trio looked happy, walking arm-in-arm together down the street near Diana’s home in the town of Ipswich. They were all smiles on the sunny day, Swift dressed in a chic black jumpsuit and black flats and the Hiddlestons both in jeans and blue tops.

Later, the group was spotted taking a stroll down a beach together, with Swift and Tom holding hands.

Earlier in the week, the new couple spent time in Nashville, where they danced and cuddled at Selena Gomez’s concert – getting particularly close during Gomez’s hit “Hands to Myself.” On Wednesday evening, the pair had a dinner date at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

After meeting Swift’s parents on Thursday, the couple dined at farm-to-fork restaurant Adele’s in downtown Nashville, with singer-songwriter Holly Williams and her husband Chris Coleman. Hiddleston played Holly’s grandfather Hank Williams in the film I Saw the Light.

Swift and Hiddleston went public with their romance earlier this month. The duo were photographed kissing a few weeks ago, holding hands and cuddling on the beach in Rhode Island.

Summer 2015 was the season of celebrity splits — Ben and Jen, Gavin and Gwen, Blake and Miranda…

Turns out, summer 2016 is shaping up to be just as dismal with Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris, as well as Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama, calling time on their romances. After six “loving and wonderful” years together, what happened between D and W?

The pair issued a joint statement on Instagram, confirming the end of their long-term relationship.

After the shock settled, whispers began to suggest that personalities may have clashed. A source said, “He’s this amazing salt of the Earth, sweet, hardworking guy and she just isn’t the right person for him.”

There’s also a 13-year age difference between the couple. He’s 36 and she is 23, suggesting they may simply be at different points in their lives.

Another source adds, “It had turned into more of a big brother-little sister kind of relationship. The romance wasn’t what it used to be. That said, Wilmer is still very protective of her. He did a lot for her—not just in terms of being there for her when she had her health issues, but really helping build her brand and launch her product lines. You never saw him out in front though. He never tried to ride her fame.”

 

Malaysian-born Australian director James Wan visited Sarawak last year for the first time in 20 years.

“That’s where I was born. I had to go back and reacquaint myself with distant family members and just to see and experience what had changed,” he shares about what inspired him to make the visit after so many years.

The director said he also needed to take a breather from work: “It was a good break. I wanted a change of culture. I’ve been working so hard in Hollywood and I just wanted to get away for a while.”

Born in Kuching, Sarawak, Wan and his family moved to Perth, Australia when he was seven.

“I remember the food,” he says about his memories of growing up in Malaysia. “I remember that I loved durian, which was one of my favourite things. I know that freaks people out but I love it and I love rambutans and all these tropical fruits, and I love laksa. I also remember celebrating Chinese New Year.”

The 39-year-old director first came into the spotlight with horror slasher film Saw in 2004, which spawned six sequels and launched the torture porn genre.

In recent years, Wan has been experiencing immense success in both the horror genre with the Insidious film series and The Conjuring as well as last year’s action-packed blockbuster Furious 7.

The latter earned US$1.5bil (RM6.12bil) globally, making it one of the highest grossing movies of all time.

Asked if he has thought of filming in Malaysia, Wan responds: “If the location calls for it, it’d be amazing. When I was visiting Malaysia recently, I thought it’d be amazing to shoot something in the forest or beaches.

“Something beautiful, nothing scary.”

Wan is working on DC Comic’s Aquaman next. “It’s a very unique character. There’s a reason that it’s a superhero character that you haven’t seen until now because it’s a really hard story to tell.

“A big chunk of the story takes place underwater. We never had that kind of technology to work with until now,” he shares what he thinks will set Aquaman apart.

“Because of that, it has a different flavour (compared) to all the other superhero movies, it takes place in its own world and it has its own visual. So if anything it feels more like an action-adventure pirate story.”
