Family squabbles over the inheritance of Alexander Gradsky turned into an open war. Recall the musician died from ischemic stroke in November 2021 at age 72. According to some estimates, the total value of the wealth he left behind is about 1 billion rubles (see “Specifically”).
A few days ago, the eldest son of the master, Daniil Gradsky, wrote a statement to the police, accusing his father’s 38-year-old widow Marina Gradskaya (nee Kotashenko) of stealing a large amount of money. Apparently, we are talking about the very 100 million rubles that the woman, after the death of her husband, took out of the apartment to a country house.
The history with this money turned out to be bad …
Up to 300 million rubles in the bank accounts of the musician.
Nine land plots in the Moscow region ranging from 304 to 2694 sq. m.
Fleet: Lincoln Town Car, Toyota 4Runner, Chevrolet Lumina, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus RX 450.
The total value of the legacy of the singer and composer may approach 1 billion rubles.
MK.Ru, 01/12/2023, “Alexander Gradsky’s relatives named the amount of his fees”: Meanwhile, MK found out how expensive Alexander Gradsky was during his lifetime. His rate for performances was not the highest in show business. For half an hour of work, Gradsky took 15 thousand dollars. The musician never agreed to a smaller amount. […] However, if the artist was invited to perform officially, then he did not reduce the rate, even if the request was made by people he knew well. The artist explained this by the fact that it is enough to give in once, everyone will start asking for a discount.
“Alexander Borisovich earned the main money on television, where he was highly paid,” we were assured.
In life, Gradsky was known as a somewhat tight-fisted person in terms of show business: he did not boast of income, did not change cars, did not seek to buy expensive accessories. However, he loved comfortable things for everyday life. He finished and furnished his house expensively, as he appreciated the beauty that surrounded him. — Inset K.ru
KP.Ru, 01/19/2022, “He had 300 million rubles under his pillow!”: The producer spoke about Gradsky’s fabulous earnings”: Producer Yevgeny Morozov, who is well acquainted with Gradsky, told kp.ru about the musician’s income. […]
He had more than 28 million rubles in debt for non-payment of property taxes. He did not pay, arguing that there was no money. And then 100 million rubles, where does such money come from? Everything is simple. Sasha’s unofficial salary in Golos was 10 million rubles a month, for 4 programs. And how many years did he sit in the “Voice”? About 10 years. That’s what I’ve accumulated. — Inset K.ru
KP.Ru, 08/17/2021, “Alexander Gradsky returns to the Voice: Over the years without a TV project, the master’s income has fallen six times”: As you know, the artist has a musical theater “Gradsky Hall”, where the TV project consistently supplied new talents. Many people think that the “brainchild” is owned by the master, as, for example, by Kadysheva – “Golden Ring”. But this is not so: the eminent artist only heads the state institution. This means that, like all heads of Moscow cultural institutions, he annually reports on income. The site kp.ru studied the declarations of Alexander Gradsky, and as it turned out, after the “Voice” his earnings fell by almost six (!) Times.
So, in 2018, Alexander Borisovich earned 16.7 million rubles, a year later his income amounted to 13.5 million. In the coronacrisis 2020, Gradsky declared only 4.2 million. For comparison: in 2017, when the mentor took part in the TV project, his annual earnings exceeded 25 million. — Inset K.ru
And at this time
The third wife entered the game
The third wife of Gradsky, Olga Fartysheva, is also trying to enter the number of heirs. In her lawsuit, she indicates that 22 years ago, after a divorce from a musician, she did not share property. And I’d like to get my share too.
But the singer’s acquaintances claim that at one time Alexander Borisovich had an agreement with his ex-wife: he provides apartments for children, helps them with money, treats his wife’s parents, and she does not pretend to anything. True, the agreement was allegedly oral …
Question – edge
Is it possible to solve the theft almost two years ago?
“If we are not talking about a specific case, but about the practice of disclosing thefts, I can say that the probability of disclosure decreases every month,” explains retired police lieutenant colonel, lawyer Stanislav Rybchinsky. There are no CCTV footage. Traces of DNA, fingerprints – what are they now looking for and with what to compare, when so much time has passed?
