Following a dramatic weekend, Lindsay Lohan is asking fans for privacy while she works things out with fiancé Egor Tarabasov.

“I would appreciate if these speculations regarding my personal life would respectfully come to a halt,” Lohan wrote on Instagram on Monday, captioning a photo of a heart-shaped cloud. “Unfortunately, a private matter has become more public than I can control and I would be extremely grateful if my fiancé and myself could discuss our personal matters on our own.”

She concluded, “There are more important things going on in the world than our relationship. Please leave us be to solve our personal matters.”

The message comes after a dramatic weekend for the couple. On Friday and Saturday, Lohan accused Tarabasov of cheating and hinted at a pregnancy in a series of since-deleted social media posts.

Late Sunday, video was released by British newspaper The Sun purporting to show Lohan fighting with Tarabasov. The footage appears to be shot from someone in a neighboring building, but PEOPLE could not verify the authenticity of the video. (Lohan and Tarabasov could not be reached for comment.) The woman in the clip speaks with an American accent and identifies herself as Lohan while arguing with a man.

The sobbing woman can be heard yelling to her neighbors from an outdoor balcony, “He just strangled me. He almost killed me.”

The woman continued, “You’ve been strangling me constantly. You can’t strangle a woman constantly and beat the s -t out of her and think it’s OK. Everybody saw you touch me. It’s filmed. Get out! Get out.”

While London police cannot confirm the involvement of Lohan or Tarabasov, 22, in the domestic incident, the police did confirm to PEOPLE that officers were called to the address stated in the video “on Saturday, 23 July at 05:10 hours following a report of a woman in distress.”

Police confirmed that the “forced entry into the address,” but found no one inside the property. Both occupants were later “found to be safe and well,” authorities said.
