Lolita Milyavskaya today is a successful and self-sufficient woman. However, this was not always the case. During an interview with Fedor Bondarchuk, the singer recalled the difficult times that came after her divorce from Alexander Tsekalo. Then the artist lost not only her husband, but also a partner in the cabaret duet “Academy”. As a result, she had to face unemployment and the loss of most of her income.
Lolita admitted that she only realized over time: she had to share her finances and her husband’s income. She did not do this, therefore, after the divorce, she fully felt the lack of money. For some time she had to live with a small child on meager fees. If, before parting with Tsekalo, she received about 25 thousand dollars for a performance, then after that she agreed to 500 dollars. She was openly rude in the face, calling her a “fool” and a “downed pilot.” According to Milyavskaya, she often received such comments from men.
At some point, Lolita could not stand it and called her ex-husband, hoping for support. The singer complained to her ex-husband about life, but received icy contempt in response.
“I sobbed into the phone. He answered me very mentorically, like, you yourself, this is your choice, and hung up, ”Milyavskaya recalled.

During this difficult period for herself, Lolita also faced the betrayal of her friends. According to Milyavskaya, she retold her dialogue with her husband to director Tigran Keosayan, with whom she was then friends. Some time later, the artist was surprised to find that he inserted this conversation into his film “Silver Lily of the Valley” without her knowledge.
“And I see this whole scene! And how it was: I shared with Tigran, I came to him to drink in tears, he was then still with Alena Khmelnitskaya. At six in the morning from their apartment in general in the trash! They supported me, but the script was being written at the same time, ”said Lolita.
Recall that the singer was married five times. In 1984, she married fellow student Alexander Belyaev. The second husband of Lolita was Vitaly Milyavsky. According to the singer, this marriage was fictitious – in 1987 the couple divorced.
For the third time, Lolita married producer Alexander Tsekalo. This marriage broke up after 12 years. From 2004 to 2009, the singer was married to businessman Alexander Zarubin. And in 2010, Lolita got married to fitness instructor Dmitry Ivanov. They divorced in 2020.
