There's nothing quite like Lindsay Lohan making headlines.
Lohan, 30, has been off probation for 14 months, after almost eight years of being on it for various episodes of law-breaking and probation violations that dominated her 20s.
She's been living in London, is engaged and is writing a book inspired by her own rough road. But maybe Lohan hasn't quite reconciled that part of her that was crying out for help with the part that so obviously would prefer an undramatic existence.
Lohan said in a video posted to Snapchat Friday night: "My fiance's being really angry at me, but I'm drinking water to get him to come home. Honey, come home, please." She captioned the pic, "E.T phone home."
Then late Saturday night, she posted an Instagram photo of her and Russian businessman Egor Tarabasov, captioned: "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."
That post, since deleted, was followed by: "Wow thanks #fiance with Russian hooker @pa5hlondon" (since deleted), "Home?" (also deleted), a tweet reading "lindsay lohan labour pains trailer - I am pregnant!!!" and a link to a Google search that turns up a picture of her in the TV movie "Labor Pains" with a baby bump (deleted).
U.S. & World
The day's top national and international news.
She also tweeted a selfie of the couple with Egor's face scribbled over and a caption quoting Nancy Sinatra's "Bang Bang": "He wore black and I wore white... I guess #art is whatever you make of it."
Tarabasov has only been a celebrity by association, otherwise not famous and perhaps just what the proverbial doctor ordered for Lohan, who has acknowledged in the past that the wrong circle of friends, associates and hangers-on played a big role in her storied troubles.
By Sunday morning, Lohan was no longer following Tarabasov on Instagram and paparazzi had snapped some pictures of a damaged front door at the couple's place.
After the sudden outpouring of scorn and grief on social media over the weekend, Lohan posted on Instagram a picture of a heart-shaped cloud and a plea for privacy.
"I would appreciate if these speculations regarding my personal life would respectfully come to a halt. Unfortunately, a private matter has become more public than I can control and I would be extremely grateful if my fianc and myself could discuss our personal matters on our own. There are more important things going on in the world than our relationship. Please leave us be to solve our personal matters," she wrote.
While of course Lohan, as much as any person, has a right not to be harassed, the media frenzy has been stirred in part due to Lohan's social media posts themselves.
Back when she left LA for her home state of New York in 2012, Lohan told Us Weekly, "It took a while but it's like, What was I thinking? Why did I allow so many sycophants and bad influences to be around me? I was lonely and I didn't realize it. That's why I came back home to New York. I never feel lonely there. I can see my family and I have really good people in my life."
After her move to London, she scored a role in a West End production of David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow.
"I can go for a run here on my own. I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else," Lohan told The Guardian in 2014.
So a level of privacy she hadn't been able to enjoy for years in the U.S. helped right the ship initially. But the running theme, for years, seems to be Lohan's choice of companions.
"@leicachick sending all my love - with you, they have futures ahead of them. Miss you. ...beautiful people inside and out @curtisleejamie," Lohan wrote.
Lohan has everyone wondering once again. Is she unhappy? Does she need help? Is this guy clearly not the one for her after all? Is London not the right place?
Her fans hope she never makes headlines again like she did in her 20s.
