Iosif Prigozhin and Valeria have been married for 18 years, and all these years the producer has not ceased to admire his wife. The singer has repeatedly said that Italian passions boil in his marriage: they constantly argue. But at the same time they remain one of the strongest and most loving couples in the national show business. In the new episode of Lera Kudryavtseva’s “Secret for a Million” program, Valeria admitted that she once again was convinced of the sincerity of her husband.
During the coronavirus pandemic, Joseph became seriously ill and was literally on the brink of death. It was in Dubai, the producer was admitted to the intensive care unit of a local hospital. The situation turned out to be so dire that Joseph was mentally ready to go. He had a serious conversation with his wife, during which he expressed his last wish. Even at such a difficult time, Prigogine was concerned for the welfare of his wife. The producer asked Valeria… not to remarry.
“Now, if I die, you don’t officially get married. They will deceive you, how they will remove the sticky! -Valéry quoted her husband with tears in his eyes.

According to Joseph, he then experienced “eight days of hell.” Prigozhin began a cytokine storm, and the doctors with difficulty brought him out of this state.
Valeria married Joseph Prigozhin after divorcing from producer Alexander Shulgin. The singer gave birth to two sons and a daughter from him. Her marriage to a famous composer gave the artist not only her most famous hits, but also a lot of pain. Having suffered enough from her tyrant husband, the singer left him with a scandal.
Earlier in an interview, Prigogine said that he had never tried to deal with Valeria’s ex-husband.
– I never wanted to talk to Shulgin about this. So that? How do you imagine that? He turns on logic. Because he was a scoundrel, I became a happy person. If he had been good, he wouldn’t have gotten this woman with her beautiful children. Therefore, in everything bad, I always see the good, says the producer.
Prigogine accepted Valeria’s children as her own. She managed to win them over right away. The producer married Valeria when her daughter Anna was 12 years old.
– He replaced my father. I don’t call him dad, but when I talk to friends, I always say, “Oh, dad is calling.” I think it’s heroism. He fell in love with a woman and took responsibility for his children and loved, although he was not obliged, Anna told about her stepfather.
