Parents are not chosen even if you are a celebrity. Not all show business stars were born into wealthy families. Some of them were very unlucky as children, but that did not stop them on their way to fame.
The future star was born into a very poor family. Her father was an employee of a chemical plant, and her mother worked at a metallurgical plant. The family had four children, Vera had three sisters: the elder Galina and the younger twins Vika and Nastya. Despite the fact that the family lived very poorly, she lived in harmony. Since childhood, Vera had to work hard to help her family. In an interview, she said that she was punished for the slightest disobedience. Her father was cruel to her, so she did not know love and affection.
The future soloist of "Tender May" spent all his childhood in orphanages and boarding schools. There the future popular group began to emerge. However, before getting there, he had a family. The celebrity still cannot hold back tears when she talks about her childhood and family. Shatunov's father suffered from alcoholism and beat his son and wife. In the end, the mother could not stand it and ran away from her husband with the child. However, life did not get better, and she found herself a new lover who suffered from this ailment. When the singer was very young, she fell ill and died.
The singer still recalls his childhood with a shudder. He grew up in a communal apartment as cockroaches. However, this was not the worst thing that happened in his life. An alcoholic father, who regularly beat his wife, left an imprint on his childhood. Later, Saltykov himself became a victim of an unbalanced man. Due to the regular beatings, his mother developed schizophrenia. Bright moments from childhood were deposited in the memory of the musician and still cause fear.
