For the past year, Vera Brezhneva, once the most desirable blonde in show business, has been living in Europe. With the beginning of the special operation, cherished by the love and money of the Russian audience, the singer moved to Italy, where she and her husband Konstantin Meladze have their own villa near Lake Garda. This is the largest lake in Italy, located at the southern foot of the Alps. The cost of the houses, like those of the stars, here starts from 800 thousand euros.
Neither Brezhnev nor Meladze come to Russia anymore. However, this does not mean that the couple has severed all ties with the country: the spouses here have not only real estate and business projects, but also unpaid bills.
So, according to KP.RU, Vera Brezhneva, who is listed in the taxpayer database as Vera Viktorovna Kiperman (this is the name of her ex-husband, Ukrainian businessman Mikhail Kiperman, with whom the ex-VIA Gra lived from 2006 to 2012) , has an open tax arrears in the amount of 193 thousand rubles. The debt is new: no fines have yet been accrued, the bailiffs have not yet connected.
Meanwhile, in Russia, the singer owns not only an individual entrepreneur, but also half of the shares in the fashion business: together with fashion designer Hanna Khmeleva, in 2017 Brezhneva launched a brand that still produces women’s clothing. . And, it’s not cheap. For example, suits from the evening collection will cost 55 thousand rubles, dresses, skirts and pants – from 20 thousand. The brand is based in St. Petersburg on one of the most expensive tourist streets. Judging by the database of legal entities, the brand ended 2022 with a loss of 14 thousand rubles. However, lawyers are skeptical about such figures: earnings can often be written off under employment contracts in the accounts of their own companies and individual entrepreneurs in order not to pay taxes.
