Svetlana Malkova gained national fame after her participation in a talk show: the 40-year-old artist said that actress Anastasia Makeeva had taken her husband, Roman Malkov. The builder’s husband was repairing the star’s dacha and could not resist her charms. Even the four children that Svetlana gave birth to him could not prevent Roman from leaving the family.
Svetlana after the divorce decided to try her luck abroad. In the spring of last year she immigrated to the United States. With no money or legal documents, on a tourist visa, she smuggled the children out of Slovenia, where she lived at the time of the divorce, and settled in Seattle. The first months were spent by a woman with three children (her eldest son staying with her father and her stepmother Anastasia Makeeva in Moscow) in a social shelter for families in crisis.
Then the family changed their place of residence. The new apartment is also social housing, that is, Malkovs can be ordered at any time, but a little better – each of the children has his own room there.
On social networks, Svetlana told how she makes a living in the United States. The main source of income for a single mother is the benefits of the American authorities and the help of caring people. Also, having moved to a new house, the woman got a job as a cleaner in a cleaning service.
“After I moved out of the foster home, I went to clean. Cleaning houses and apartments is hard work. My lower back hurt for a month. But I enjoyed this job. We talk to girls. But I am very glad that I have been in cleaning for two months. Such experiences help a person to grow. You don’t have to be afraid of work. I know that all successful people have gone through cleaning and car washing … You will never be appointed to the post of director if you do not go through “dirty” work, Svetlana shared.

In addition, Malkova graduated from the courses and is now able to perform beauty procedures.
“I can do different procedures. Now I’m going to study more. At the age of 40, I had a desire to try myself somewhere. I study Spanish and English. I have a passion to learn. You won’t get lost. You don’t have to hold on to a man with all your might. He won’t make you happy. Ten percent of happiness brings you a man, ninety percent – yourself, ”says Malkova.
After the divorce, Roman did not pay alimony, and Svetlana applied for payments through the courts. Then the single mother forbade the children to ask her father for money.
“The kids were constantly asking dad for brochures. Five euros and so on. At one point I said: “That’s it. Enough. You don’t have to ask for these brochures.” Why? Because anyone has low self-esteem, they will get used to the idea that there is no money all the time. I don’t like that,” Malkova said.
Svetlana is raising three children: Anna, Alexander and Akim. In Slovenia, she gave drawing lessons. During the pandemic, her business was severely affected. Her husband went to work in Russia, and there he fell in love with actress Anastasia Makeeva. The couple married in 2021.
After her rival left for America, Anastasia said that Malkova did not even have money for children’s food.
– This woman illegally removed children with expired documents, deceiving border guards with documents in Slovenian. She crossed the border on a tourist visa and stayed there with three minor children illegally. She took the children against her will, tore them from their studies, without money, without knowledge of the language, work, documents, a roof. She did all of this with money from compassionate people who sent funds for food to children. It was for a beautiful life. And now Russian illegal children are wandering there with their distraught mother. She is socially dangerous and does not account for her actions, the artist was outraged.
