Irina Ponarovskaya was one of the most beloved performers in the USSR. She has always been emphatically elegant, and even the Chanel Fashion House officially awarded her the title of Miss Chanel of the Soviet Union. In life, the singer had to endure betrayal, to return her own son Anthony, who was stolen by her ex-husband. Why did the singer later have to take Anthony out of the country, and what was his fate?
Anthony was born when Irina Ponarovskaya was already 31 years old. By this time, she was famous and was married to a black jazz singer and musician Weiland Rodd. The relationship between the singer and her second husband originated in difficult times for the singer. Against the background of hard work and constant stress, the singer's health deteriorated greatly, and Weiland helped her cope with her problems.
At first, their life was quite happy, the spouses even took a dark-skinned girl for upbringing, because Irina Ponarovskaya had almost said goodbye to the dream of having her own child. But many problems arose with the baby, and as a result, the singer's husband, without her knowledge, took little Nastya to the orphanage.
Irina Ponarovskaya does not like to remember this, however, later she tried to rectify the situation and, having found the girl, invited the already matured Nastya to live with her. But it all ended in a huge scandal, and the singer stopped not only communicating with Anastasia, but also talking about her.
When “Miss Chanel of the Soviet Union felt that she was expecting a child, she was afraid to tell even her own mother about it. She knew for sure that she would have a son. Anthony, born in October 1984, became the greatest happiness in life for the performer. As Irina Ponarovskaya herself admits, she belongs to the category of lioness mothers who are ready to do anything for their child.
A few years after the appearance of Anthony, Irina Ponarovskaya broke up with her husband. And Weiland Rodd, taking advantage of the departure of his ex-wife on tour, took and took Anthony away. The singer was desperate and at the same time determined to bring the child back. She even turned to the police, but she was not allowed to declare Anthony on the All-Union wanted list.
But Irina found out where her ex-husband was and came to pick up Anthony. According to the singer, she found her boy in a hotel room. His father was not around, but there was some girl, a dancer from the Rodda ensemble. The kid, seeing his mother, began to cry, reached for her and began to ask where she was and why she had not come for him for so long.
Since then, Anthony has not communicated with his own father. In his childhood memory, the rudeness and cruel attitude towards him on the part of Weyland Rodd were forever deposited.
After this incident, Irina Ponarovskaya tried, if possible, not to part with her son. She could not even imagine what difficulties her boy would have to face due to the dark color of his skin. In childhood, this did not seem to be a particular problem; Anthony and his mother simply tried not to pay attention to the increased attention from children and adults. But when the guy grew up, the situation became disastrous.
The son of a famous singer began to be beaten, and once he even ended up in intensive care. On the street, Anthony Rodda was attacked by 12 informals.None of the passers-by tried to stop the unbelievable hooligans confident of their impunity and the "high mission" of ridding Russia of foreigners. However, even friend Anthony simply ran away without calling anyone for help.
After the doctors put Anthony on his feet, the singer realized that her son needed to be saved, otherwise the next meeting with aggressive informals could be the last for the guy. Irina Ponarovskaya decided to take the only child out of the country. She understood that she would miss and miss, but the singer was not going to endanger the life of the dearest person for the sake of her maternal feelings. As a result, Anthony Rodd ended up in Norway, where his life changed dramatically.
In his youth, Anthony dreamed of becoming a singer, like his mother, but Irina Ponarovskaya was able to convince her son not to repeat her fate, but to choose her own path. In Oslo, Anthony Rodd graduated and became a jewelry designer.
But most of all Anthony is proud of his family today. His wife was Anna Tchaikovskaya, an artist from Moscow, who moved in with her husband and made him a happy father of two children. In 2014, Anthony and Anna had a son, Eric, and four years later, a daughter, Charlotte.
Most of the time, the family lives in Estonia, where the singer has her own house. But Anthony and his wife and children love to travel, and for the winter they have been moving to Goa for two years in a row. Moreover, the professions of spouses allow not to be tied to one place.
Irina Ponarovskaya often refuses to perform, agreeing only to the most interesting projects. She prefers quiet happiness in the circle of the closest and dearest people: her son and grandchildren, whom she simply adores.
There was a story in the life of Irina Ponarovskaya, the memories of which still hurt her today.
