For the sake of a young muse, the actor divorced his wife Tatyana Vlasova.
79-year-old actor Armen Dzhigarkhanyan officially filed for divorce from his wife Tatyana Vlasova. The couple had been married for 40 years, but on the eve of his 80th birthday, the actor decided to part with his wife. The reason for this decision was the actor's new muse, 34-year-old Vitalina Tsymbalyuk-Romanovskaya. Since 2008, the girl has worked at the Dzhigarkhanyan Drama Theater. She was in charge of the musical part, but since this season she has been appointed director of the theater.
However, for the actor's wife, this decision did not come as a surprise: the couple did not communicate for the past six years. Tatyana moved to live in the USA a long time ago. The actor often visited his wife, but lived and worked in Russia. In 2002, Dzhigarkhanyan had his first microstroke. The artist was looked after by his sister Nara, but she soon died. So Armen Borisovich was left alone. In 2009, he was overtaken by a second microstroke. Just at this time, his new passion began to look after and take care of the celebrity.
According to Vitalina herself, earlier the people's artist was depressed and felt bad, but now there is someone to take care of him, and he is in great shape. The newly-made couple lives together and regularly goes on vacation together. The actor himself says that he loves the young darling very much, but understands that due to the age difference it will not be easy for them to find a common language.
