A star in poverty: a Soviet actress living in the United States faces poverty
The star of the Soviet cinema, 70-year-old Olga Prokhorova, remained in the United States without shelter and livelihood.
Prokhorova is already 25 years old lives in Hollywood (California), she rents apartments in a four-story building. For a room with an area of 20 square meters pays 2000 dollars per month, tells NTV.
In the apartment of the star of the Soviet screen reigns terrible mess, the whole room is filled with boxes with the personal belongings of the actress. From furniture - an old sofa, littered with debris, two chairs and a table. In the kitchen - dirty dishes. Prokhorov survived two strokes, she was turned off for non-payment of water and electricity, her disability benefits - 1000 dollars - are sorely lacking in life. The star of the Soviet screen was forced to hook up a neighbor, otherwise it would be put on the street.
When the actress moved to America, she was bitterly disappointed. She missed the thresholds of the casting agencies for nothing, the star of the Soviet screen was not needed there. Prokhorov unsuccessfully invested the accumulated money and went bankrupt. To survive, the actress spread cosmetics, worked as a translator. And when she finally undermined her health, she decided: it was time to return to her homeland. But it turned out that no one expected her in Russia either.
“I'm doing everything in my power to fly away. Because here I have absolutely nothing to do. As soon as you have lost your ability to work, there is no benefit from you, and you will be destroyed, ”said Prokhorova.
In Moscow, in a prestigious area, she has a one-room apartment worth 10 million rubles (150 thousand dollars), another real estate - in Riga, a house on the Sea of Azov - all this remained after the death of her mother and grandmother. But Prokhorova's half-sister took possession of the entire inheritance. The star of the Soviet screen has no doubts: her relative acted illegally.
“My sister just hated me. She is from another marriage, my mother's first. My appearance for her was generally ... She just openly hates me, ”the actress said.
Neighbors say: half-sister Prokhorova died. Now the apartment of the actress is owned by her grand-nephew Yuri, he rents the “one-handed”, and he lives somewhere else. Prokhorov intends to come to Moscow and sue the relatives, because they left her at the bottom of the trough. However, lawyers are confident that she will lose the case. Firstly, the actress’s mother signed a power of attorney for her eldest daughter, and secondly, almost 30 years have passed since the day of her inheritance.
