37-year-old TV presenter Dmitry Shepelev recalled the problems that arose during his romance with the famous singer.
Last year, Dmitry Shepelev moved in with his chosen one - designer Ekaterina Tulupova. The TV presenter is in no hurry to share the details of his new relationship with the public and still does not show his son Plato on social networks. Dmitry admits: he is not at all attracted by the reverse side of fame, when he is recognized on the street, or when strangers try to give him advice about his personal life. At one time, he was very tired of this when he met with the singer Zhanna Friske. According to Shepelev, until he fell in love with Jeanne, he had no idea how public she was.
Zhanna Friske knew the whole country: when she began to meet with Dmitry, he was a novice TV presenter. Jeanne's fame literally stunned him - they could not step even a step without being watched from the side. It was this moment that strained Shepelev very much during the affair with Friske.
"When we were with Zhanna, I got very badly burned on this. She is an even more public person than me. Even a much more recognizable person. I didn't understand what I was interfering with. When I realized that all and sundry are crawling into our personal life, it made me very scared", - said the TV presenter in the Macarena YouTube show.
Then, when Jeanne passed away, and Shepelev had a new relationship, he realized that he did not want to share with anyone the details of what was happening in his house and in his family. Today Dmitry and his chosen one live in a large apartment on the Patriarch's Ponds with two children - Shepelev's son from Zhanna Friske Platon and Lada - Catherine's daughter from her first marriage. The couple's children are the same age, they are 7 years old. The guys went to the same kindergarten, and it was they who introduced the parents to each other.
Shepelev does not disclose his plans for the future, but on Instagram he somehow let slip that he was thinking about getting married. The TV presenter began dating 37-year-old Ekaterina Tulupova three years ago. Tulupova, like Shepelev, raised her daughter alone. Ekaterina divorced her husband in 2016.
The father of her daughter Lada is a successful financier, founder and manager of Altus Capital investment company Dmitry Klenov. Klenova's company owns the main share of the 36.6 pharmacy chain (it includes more than 1300 pharmacies located throughout Russia, including the 36.6, Gorzdrav and A5 brands). As reported on the company's website, the total volume of transactions with the participation of Altus Capital at the end of 2017 exceeded $ 1 billion.
It is important for Dmitry that with the transition to a new job, he can still afford to maintain a comfortable lifestyle for himself and his family. He pays 1.5 million rubles a year for the school for Plato's son alone. It was rumored that after Shepelev left Channel One for TNT, he lost his salary. However, the TV presenter denied this information in the Macarena YouTube show.
“I haven't lost anything,” he said. According to some reports, Shepelev earns up to 30 million rubles a year on the TV channel.
