Note to Lindsay Lohan: Good luck if you think your request for privacy on Instagram is going to quell gossip about your latest antics.

On Monday, the actress, 30, told followers that there are “more important things going on in the world” than her relationship.

Yet the post is unlikely to undo the raised eyebrows caused by reports in London on Sunday that she woke up neighbors on her Knightsbridge street when she screamed for help and accused her boyfriend of partying with a prostitute.

In a dramatic video on the U.K Sun website (apparently shot by a neighbor), a woman with an American accent can be could be heard begging for help outside of the posh residence at 5 a.m. Saturday.

The Sun reported that LiLo shouted her name and address and screamed: ‘’Please please please. He just strangled me. He almost killed me. Everybody will know. Get out of my house.’’

“He” would be fiancé Egor Tarabasov, 23, the Russian millionaire she has been seeing for seven months.

Yet when police responded to reports of a person in distress and arrived 10 minutes later, they found no one inside after knocking the door down.

The Sun reported that authorities said no crime was committed and no arrests were made.


Comedian Katt Williams is in trouble again.
