Among the artists who opened the largest Live Arena concert complex on December 17 was 60-year-old Grigory Leps.
This is the second public appearance of the artist after a scandalous fight in St. Petersburg, where he began a melee with a visitor to a bar. According to one version, the singer offered the man to play backgammon for 10 thousand dollars, he refused. According to another version, the conflict broke out because the fan was denied an autograph. In any case, it all ended in an ugly street fight, Leps and his fan had a fight in the center of St. Petersburg. And then the man filed a police complaint against the artist. True, the scandal was soon resolved, the victim withdrew the complaint after Leps’s personal apologies. After the “world” Gregory returned to concert activity and performed in the New Year’s show “Earthlings”, where, as KP.RU already wrote, he showed his broken fists on stage. The post-fight abrasions have not yet passed, Leps’s fans noticed this during his performance at the Live Arena.
However, the musician was already doing well, the minor period of his career, it would seem, is over.
Behind the scenes of the Live Arena, Leps was a friend of Philip Kirkorov. And then, absolutely calmly, without emotion, he answered the question of Artyom Skorobogatov, the presenter of the Muz-TV channel, about his current state of mind.
– Penalty fee! Everything’s okay! – the artist shared with Skorobogatov.
Let’s remember: as the star promoter Yevgeny Morozov said in an interview with KP.RU, the artist’s nervous breakdown was associated with his personal life. Let’s say that the singer is still divorcing his wife Anna Shaplykova, who bore him three children.
