Zhanna Friske and Dmitry Shepelev
37-year-old Dmitry Shepelev became the hero of the new issue of the YouTube show "Macarena". In a conversation with host Karen Adamyan, the showman spoke about his work on Channel One and leaving it, the scandalous interview with Ksenia Sobchak and the protests raging to this day in his native Belarus. Shepelev also touched upon a satisfied personal topic - his relationship with Zhanna Friske, who passed away in 2015 after several years of struggling with an inoperable brain tumor.
So, the TV presenter recalled the very beginning of the affair with the mother of his seven-year-old son Plato and admitted that he was greatly annoyed by the increased interest of journalists in their pair.
I didn't even know what I was interfering with. When I realized that all and sundry climb into our personal life, it made me very scared. I just didn't know what to do with it
- Shepelev shared.

By the way, Dmitry Shepelev took into account the mistakes of the past, and in his relationship with his new lover Ekaterina Tulupova, the TV presenter does not allow them anymore. The showman rarely publishes pictures with his chosen one on social networks and practically does not comment on their romance in the press. Only in a conversation with Ksenia Sobchak Shepelev made an exception and for the first time told how exactly they met Tulupova.
Katya is an architect, designer, and children introduced us, because our children went to the same kindergarten. This is an official dating story and true. There is also an unofficial and very funny one. After we officially met in kindergarten, I sit on Tinder, leafing through pictures. There are my real pictures. And those girls with whom we coincided, usually wrote to me: "You don’t fucking put other people's pictures? Who are you, freak? Why?" And somehow we coincided with Katya, it was like a second acquaintance on this social network,
- Shepelev said.

Recall, Zhanna Friske and Dmitry Shepelev began dating in 2011, but at first they tried not to advertise their relationship. In 2013, their son Plato was born in one of the Miami clinics. Then the singer admitted that the baby was long-awaited for her, but unplanned. Soon after giving birth, Zhanna learned about her terrible illness - doctors diagnosed the star with an inoperable brain tumor. For about two years, relatives and friends fought for Jeanne's life and even used experimental treatment. On June 15, 2015, Zhanna Friske passed away. The celebrity was buried at the Nikolo-Arkhangelsk cemetery.

After Zhanna Friske's departure from life, relations between her parents and Dmitry Shepelev deteriorated greatly due to financial issues. The TV presenter claimed that the parents of his late beloved, a few days before the death of their daughter, withdrew 21 million rubles from her account. This money was allocated for the treatment of the singer by Rusfond. After the death of Friske, the fund through the court asked the parents and Dmitry Shepelev to return the remaining funds.
As a result, Friske's mother and father paid off the debt to Rusfond, but in response they demanded that Shepelev pay them a third of this amount. The court recently satisfied their claim. Now the TV presenter will have to pay Zhanna's parents seven million rubles.
