Alla Pugacheva’s grandson, Nikita Presnyakov, left for the United States a few months ago. The 31-year-old heir to the star family traveled abroad in the fall, in the midst of mobilization. Later, Nikita’s wife, Alena, moved to the United States after him. In America, Pugacheva’s grandson works as a clip maker: he shoots clips for Western artists. To build a career abroad, he took the pseudonym Nick Pres.
Many wondered how Nikita managed to get a work permit. But everything turned out to be simple: Pugacheva’s grandson already has American citizenship. Her second grandmother, Elena Presnyakova, let this slip to reporters.
According to Presnyakova, having citizenship of this country, Nikita feels quite comfortable in America. She apparently is not going to return to Russia, so she decided to put up for sale the house that she received as a gift from Pugacheva in the Moscow region. A few years ago, Alla Borisovna gave her grandson a dacha in Istra. Now the mansion is put up for sale for 225 million rubles. Well, if she Nikita still decides to return, then she has a place to live: she owns a spacious apartment in the center of Moscow.
“He has his own apartment in the city. A very good and spacious apartment, ”Elena Presnyakova said in an interview with MK.
The artist regularly communicates with her grandson by phone. True, she did not tell her relatives about the sale of Pugacheva’s house.
“I am completely unaware of these cases,” Elena admitted. We never talk to him about these issues. He is a grown man, he decides what to do. We will not meddle in his business.”

Let’s remember that Nikita Presnyakov was born in London. For a long time, the son of Christina Orbakaite and Vladimir Presnyakov lived and studied in the United States, so he quite easily adapted to life abroad. He managed to freely cross the border thanks to another passport. Last year it turned out that Presnyakov Jr. has Lithuanian citizenship.
In 2009, the singer’s son graduated from the New York Film Academy (New York Film Academy), where he studied directing. Now those skills are useful to him. Nikita has already shot a video for American star Dolly Parton.
So far, in the United States, Presnyakov Jr. does not have his own home. Together with his wife Alena his, he settled in Miami in the Orbakaite apartment, located in an elite residential complex. The house is on the ocean, front line, and overlooks the beach.
