LINDSAY LOHAN POSTS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP DRAMA
Lindsay Lohan’s love life may not have the fairy tail ending she was hoping for. She took to social media over the weekend to call out her fiancé, Egor Tarabasov, for allegedly cheating on her while also claiming that she is pregnant.

She sent a Snapchat video of herself saying, "My fiancé's being really angry at me, but I'm drinking water to get him to come home. Honey, come home, please." Lindsay also posted a photo to Instagram referencing their seven year age difference writing, "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."

    Lindsay also tagged stylist Dasha Pashevkina in a video post and wrote, "Wow thanks #fiance with Russian hooker @dasha_pa5h." Things took a dramatic turn when Lindsay tweeted, "Lindsay Lohan labour pains trailer -- I am pregnant!!" She has deleted most of the posts but the pregnancy post remains as well as an Instagram photo of herself with Egor but Egor’s face is scribbled out. Lindsay previously claimed to have been pregnant as an attempt to explain why she was difficult to work with while making her OWN docu-series. She said on the finale episode that she lost the baby.


TOM HIDDLESTON SPEAKS ON HIS HIGH-PROFILE ROMANCE
Tom Hiddleston believes that authenticity is the key to staying sane as he reaches new heights of fame. He was promoting Skull Island at Comic-Con over the weekend where he was asked about how he handles all of the attention he has been getting as of late.

Tom responded, "I don't know, it comes down to being authentic. Everything you do you have to make sure you truly believe in it and as long as you know that, it doesn't matter what anyone else says about it because the nature of being a public figure is that everyone will have an opinion about anything you do, and as long as you know why you've done something and you've committed to it with authenticity then you're okay."

    He addressed his relationship with Taylor Swift earlier this month saying, "Well, um. How best to put this? That notion is -- look, the truth is that Taylor Swift and I are together, and we're very happy. Thanks for asking. That's the truth. It's not a publicity stunt."
