Vitalina Tsymbalyuk-Romanovskaya returned a million dollar debt to a friend of Armen Dzhigarkhanyan, businessman Yuri Rastegin. At one time, he bought half of his apartment from the artist, and Vitalina, who was then the wife of Dzhigarkhanyan, loaned money for repairs.
Rastegin plans to create a museum in the actor's apartment in Starokonyushenny lane. According to the businessman, they discussed this idea during the artist's lifetime. At the same time, he assures that he will not evict the actor's widow if she wants to stay in the apartment:
"If Tatyana Sergeevna says that she wants to continue living there, I will not object. Let him live in peace, and we will fulfill Dzhigarkhanyan's request later. If she gives the go-ahead to organize a museum in the apartment, we will find options for her. I have the means to provide her with decent housing. I saw in what excellent relations they were with Dzhigarkhanyan,"
- said the businessman in an interview with "Interlocutor".
Rastegin also said that he finally finished his lawsuit with Vitalina Tsymbalyuk-Romanovskaya. The two million that the pianist had borrowed from him against a receipt, she finally returned:
“Vitalina paid me the debt in full. As soon as the court decision came into force, she immediately paid off. It was a pleasant surprise for me: I thought that I would not see my money for a long time.”
Speaking about Dzhigarkhanyan, Rastegin also added that he does not believe rumors that no one has courted the actors in recent years. However, Tsymbalyuk-Romanovskaya says the opposite:
"The real state of Armen Borisovich has been carefully hidden for the past few years. Friends, relatives and the press were not allowed to see him. Yes, I saw documents confirming to what a terrible state he was brought. Life with Armen has become the main part of my personality and my biography. For our marriage I am responsible - and there is something to be proud of: his appearance, being in demand, his feeling of happiness. The shame into which he was drawn, taking advantage of his state of health, has nothing to do with my life … ",
- the woman made a statement in an interview with the publication "StarHit".
We will remind, earlier "Rambler" reported that Petrosyan apologized for the words about the death of Dzhigarkhanyan "in agony".
