Until recently, Semyon Slepakov was one of the richest artists in Russia: he received multimillion-dollar advertising contracts, earned fabulous fees at corporate parties, and was regularly included in the list of the richest celebrities according to Forbes. However, last year, having gathered his family, his guitar and his simple belongings, the bard left for Israel to build a new life.
Now, on a tour of Europe, Slepakov not only performs his playful ditties, but also scolds the country in which he became a star. They say that fugitive guest performers are paid several times less money for such performances than they used to receive in Russia, so yesterday’s rich people have to control their appetite.
Meanwhile, the showman’s financial problems became the property of the Federal Tax Service of the Russian Federation. So, at the end of 2022, Semyon Slepakov was on the “black list” of the Federal Tax Service with debts of 19 million rubles – these are unpaid income taxes of 118 million plus charges for late payments. However, the famous taxpayer closed this gap in the budget in a couple of months, but now Slepakov has found another tax debt. This time, according to KP.RU, 232 thousand rubles are demanded from the bard.
At the same time, despite Russophobic statements, the showman continues to appear on Russian television. So, the other day one of the federal channels released a program with the participation of Slepakov. The recording of the old program, which appeared so inopportunely on the air grid, outraged both ordinary viewers and show business.
– Previously, some actor fell out of favor and was cut from all movies. You need to differentiate your approach. Everything that is against us must be eliminated, – the singer Yuri Loza categorically pronounced himself.
