Hi, Maria I haven't been keeping up with that side of things much, but this is the most recent interview with Marat that I could find on the subject. I guess if there had been any real conflict with Shamil, Marat would have kept it private, so maybe he's just fully occupied with his, er, new life.

How did she sound when she said it? Irritated, indifferent? I just checked her Facebook friends list (idle curiosity ) and found Dinara on it, but not Marat. How disappointed his more liberal-minded friends must be with him.

*converts into pounds sterling* Bloody hell. Well, it's going to cost sites like, etc. a pretty penny, because their galleries are heaving with photos of scantily clad dancers simulating lesbian sex. Perhaps Marat will collect the fines the next time he's in Premier Lounge.

Hope life is good with you too, Miko! Martina should collar him at the earliest opportunity. It really makes you wonder what Marat will do if one of his own kids turns out to be gay ...

He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
