All of Russia remembers the notorious group Tatu either for the resounding success at Eurovision, or for the equally loud rumors about the orientation of the girls participating.
"Red-haired" Elena Katina and "black" Julia Volkova were once the most talked about stars in the country, but now not much is known about their lives.
As "Rambler" found out, the group broke up in 2011, but the girls were still talked about in the "get-together." Especially about the "little black".
It turned out that back in 2007, the girl secretly married the son of an oligarch with Tajik roots, Parviz Yasinov.
Volkova was so immersed in marriage that she decided to follow her husband in terms of religion. The press wrote that the girl converted to Islam.
"Yes, it's true. I advise! But only if it is close to your liking. I do not regret it. I accepted Islam because I felt it was closer to me," the scandalous star said at the time.
Moreover, the singer did not say that her lover convinced her to change religion. She assured that she herself was carried away by Islam, and admitted that she was "always fascinated by the mosques, the singing of the mullah, the women in the burqa."
Julia gave birth to Parviz's son Samir, but in 2010 their family broke up, and already in 2016 the media wrote that the girl had returned to Orthodoxy.
Soon Volkova herself published the corresponding photo on social networks.
"God is one, and everyone has the right to go to a mosque, Catholic or Orthodox church, synagogue … Once I passed near an Orthodox church, and I wanted to go there. I realized that yes, this is my home, I feel good here, and then I can talk with God ", - the singer explained her return to religion.
Of course, such a transition from one "camp" to another could not fail to be noticed. The press loudly discussed the girl's decision, and the Association of Muslim Women said that Julia spoiled the reputation of Muslim women with her promiscuity. Then they were even going to seek a ban on Volkova's entry into Islamic countries, and in Afghanistan, unknown persons publicly burned a poster with a photo of the Tatu star.
