Since childhood, the singer Zara dreamed of a strong family and the only spouse with whom she would live her whole life. But fate decided otherwise. In 2016, the girl went through a second divorce and alone is raising two sons.
Singer Zara is a beautiful talented girl who has always been popular among the opposite sex. Interestingly, at the same time, all the men with whom she developed at least the slightest degree of serious relationship bore the name Sergei.
First unsuccessful marriage
Few of the singer's fans know that the girl's name is actually Zarifa. Zara is a short form of the name and at the same time a stage name. The girl was brought up in a strict family, so cohabitation with the man she liked was out of the question. It is not surprising that the singer got married very early. Her first chosen one was Sergey Matvienko. Zarifa became his wife during her student days. The groom's surname speaks for itself. Sergei is the son of the governor of St. Petersburg, Valentina Ivanovna.
The young man began courting Zarifa with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. It contained more than a hundred roses. His girlfriend got it from a mysterious stranger. After a personal acquaintance, the young people quickly got married. She was expensive and gorgeous. For the sake of her beloved spouse, with whom Zara had her first kiss and first intimacy, the girl even converted to Orthodoxy. The singer later explained that it was not the groom's wealth that won her over. Sergei, with his care and attention, managed to ignite true sincere love in the heart of an oriental beauty.
But, despite the loud words, the couple lived in marriage for only about a year. They simply explained their divorce: they did not fit each other in character. Zarifa was sure that such different they could complement each other, but it turned out quite differently. Domestic quarrels between lovers began a couple of days after the wedding and continued throughout their short family life.
Zarifa was going through her quick divorce extremely hard. Parents from childhood instilled in the girl that she should have only one single man. In parting with Sergei, the singer blamed only herself and was sure that now she would live her whole life alone and childless.
Evenings Zara began to spend at home alone. She cried into the pillow and grieved about her ruined female destiny. Friends decided to help the girl. They began to try to get the divorced beauty out of the house. As a result, Zarifa agreed to go to only one party. It is interesting that it was at this event that the girl met her future spouse.
Successful and wealthy Muscovite Sergei Ivanov immediately noticed a charming dark-haired beauty at the party. The man was never modest, so he immediately "rushed into battle." Still saddened by the recent events of her personal life, Zara did not react in any way to the signs of attention from her new acquaintance. This upset Ivanov greatly. He was so stunned by the girl's coldness that Sergei did not even ask her for a phone number. He greatly regretted this after the event. A pleasant impression from the acquaintance remained, but the man did not know anything about the beauty he liked and did not even imagine where to look for her now.
We can say with confidence that the musical show "Star Factory" has become fateful for Zarifa. Firstly, it was after participating in it that the girl truly became famous and fell in love with the audience. Then her career quickly went uphill. And, secondly, Sergei Ivanov saw on the screen the very stranger he had been looking for for so long. Now the man decided not to miss his chance, but immediately began to actively act.
The businessman regularly sent huge baskets of sweets, flowers, fruits to the house where the participants of the show lived. In addition, he was sure to buy tickets for each reporting concert of the project. During the show, Zarifa managed to get used to the persistent admirer, but at the same time did not make any reciprocal steps to meet him.
After the end of the sixth season of Star Factory, Ivanov continued to look after the beautiful singer, but she still remained cold. The girl still could not move away from the divorce and categorically did not want to admit any new man to her. She was especially embarrassed by the fact that Sergei was married and had two small children.
The businessman managed to conquer Zara after about a year of persistent courtship. Later, the singer recalled that during this time Ivanov made her a marriage proposal at least 100 times. The girl could not resist such pressure. As a result, she accepted Sergey's offer. The wedding was celebrated in an expensive rublevsky restaurant. All the most famous Russian stars were invited to the celebration.
In marriage, the spouses had two sons: Daniel and Maxim. Zarifa does not hide that she had problems conceiving babies, but prayer in the Orthodox Church helped her. For this, the girl even specially flew to Jerusalem.
To everyone's surprise, the marriage of Zara and Sergei Ivanov broke up after 8 years. The couple divorced in 2016. Both ex-spouses refuse to answer questions about the reasons for the divorce. Sergei and Zarifa only declare that they mutually came to such a difficult decision.
