Navka and Zhulin are getting divorced.
Sensational details of the break up of a family of two famous figure skaters.

Translation of an article by Anjelika Pachomova printed in a Russian language newspaper “Zhizn” on November 15, 2007

A famous family has broken up. It seems that the reason for it was the romance of Tatiana Navka with a popular actor.

Navka and Zhulin met 14 years ago when he was still married, and it took him seven years to leave his then partner and wife Maja Usova. In 2000, Alex and Tatiana got married. It seemed that everything was fine, but then unexpectedly their family was broken.

It is interesting to point out that history in this case repeated itself. A while ago, Tatiana was able to get Zhulin for herself by breaking up his marriage of ten years to Usova. However, Tatiana was not the first woman to test his family ties with Usova. Before meeting Tatiana, he was trying to leave Usova for another woman, also a figure skater. Navka knew about that situation and was feeling bad for Usova then. Navka said that she was sure it was not possible to build one’s happiness on another person’s suffering. Seeing how Maja was suffering because of the romance of Zhulin with another woman, Navka said that she hoped that she would not make this family suffer any more. But Alex and Tatiana could not resist their feelings for long: in 1993 their romance stared.

At that time Zhulin was actively performing in ice shows with Usova in the US. Navka was looking for a partner and she started training with Roman Kostomarov. But she did not have a personal life. Zhulin was telling her to wait for him, and when in 2000 she told Zhulin that she was expecting his child, he made a decision to stay with her.

Maja Usova could not forgive Alex and stopped skating with him. He had to skate at that time with a partner, who wanted to break him away from Usova in the past. Tatiana was concerned about that arrangement, but she decided that she would not be jealous.

Zhulin always trusted Tatiana and the gossip that she started a romance with actor Marat Basharov hit him hard. He was hoping that it would pass, but the people around him kept bringing up the subject. It was going on for a few months and than he decided to leave Tatiana.

People around Zhulin mention that he is a very strong person and would have left his family earlier if it was not for their daughter, but even she could not hold him in the family any longer. When asked if the news about the split was true, Tatiana did not deny it, but did not make any comments.

    from usova latest interview where she finally admited that the real reason of her broken family was NOT oksana and she lied for many years blaming oksana as a root of her misery. usova made dubova to trow oksana making dubova beleive that oksana broke her family. usova is the biggest lier and a slut in figure skating. May be people should vote who is biggest whore gordeeva or usova.

    Dubova threw Oksana Gritschuk out of her group precisely for personal reasons. Dubova really loved me, and wanted to thus clear my and Zhulin’s path to medals, so to speak. I just didn’t find the strength to tell my coach that it wasn’t about Gritschuk, but about the relationship that has become unbearable for me. However, after what Dubova did, I just couldn’t stab her in the back by quitting the team.

    We actually think that Navka is a real devil woman. She was born on april the 13th and was practicing witch spells on Zulin.Those words were from the interview of her new boyfriend mother who also believes that she put a evil spell on her son as well.
    We also read that someone called her a black devil swan. that is such a perfect comparison.
