Lindsay Lohan’s dad, Michael Lohan, is not one to keep his opinions of his daughter’s life to himself — as his comments on her rumored pregnancy prove — and he’s definitely not holding back when it comes to her fiancé, Egor Tarabasov.
No one really knows exactly what’s been going on behind the scenes with Lindsay and Tarabasov and if they’re even back together. But that hasn’t stopped Michael from giving his opinion on him, as he told Star magazine, via Daily Mail, that he feels Tarabasov’s been using his daughter.
“I have no idea [if he’s wealthy]. All I know is my daughter is paying most of the bills and trips were complimentary because of Lindsay’s name,” Michael stated. “She was a segueway [sic] for him to live that lifestyle…”
Tarabasov is believed to be very wealthy and the son of a Russian businessman; however, Michael’s comments about him seem to cast doubt on his wealth. He also shared his thoughts on Lindsay’s romance and his wish for her to find a “nice, normal, sober guy” and “someone who does as much for her as she does for them, and not someone in the entertainment business.”
We can’t blame Michael for the way he feels about Tarabasov, and he is only being protective of his daughter (although she might appreciate it if he didn’t speak to the media about her love life), which is also why he sent Tarabasov some very threatening texts. He reportedly told the magazine he stands by his threats after seeing reports that Tarabasov allegedly grabbed and choked his daughter.
Oh, and that’s not all that Michael has to say about Lindsay’s man. He also thinks he’s responsible for her taking a backseat in the film business.
“She’s a gifted actress and should be working in the movie business,” he told the magazine, adding, “She was offered a couple of good film projects, but Egor wasn’t keen on them. ‘I don’t know if they’re a very good fit for her.’ But who is he? He’s a 23-year-old kid.” Yep, we think it’s safe to say that Michael is no fan of Tarabasov’s.
