Vladimir Putin, Marriage Counselor
One of the big stories in Russian celebrity culture has been an extramarital affair involving Russia's wealthiest man, Chukotka governor and Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich, with model Darya Zhukova. Abramovich has resisted divorcing his wife while also maintaining his relationship with Zhukova.
According to the Moscow Times, Vladimir Putin himself met with his close friend Abramovich and told him to "clean up his act
," thus moving Abramovich to proceed with the divorce.
Perhaps Putin is seeking to expand his legacy as a man who can solve all problems, foreign and domestic, or maybe he gets sick of celebrity dirt in the news like everyone else.
