“StarHit” found a spiritual mentor of the artist. The man lives in the Crimea, and served there in the Church. With the king of pop scenes of his long-term friendship. In his time Philip has done everything possible to his comrade on the mend.
The artist is not once mentioned about my brother, and fans were wondering who calls Philip, after all, a blood relative in the biography of the king of pop did not appear. “StarHit” declassified his identity – he was a clergyman Alexander Dikan from the Crimea. He said that Alla-Victoria and Martin already know the prayer and why advises Kirkorov tour dates.
Protodeacon Alexander Dikan more than 25 years as a cleric of St. Nicholas Church in Simferopol. It has not taken a vow of celibacy, and even was married. Unfortunately, the family broke up in 2002. According to Canon law a second time to tie the knot he can’t. With Kirkorov they met in 1991.
“Philip helped to build the temple of Alexander Nevsky in Simferopol, – has shared with “StarHit” Dykan. – We were introduced to each other at one of the events, since are friends, we are brothers in Christ. Friends say that similar eyes, facial expressions and even character. So Philip often calls me by a relative. But I’d rather his spiritual mentor. We are always in touch. He loves to communicate through text interested in the view of the Church on a particular situation. Asks what dates it is better to arrange the tour, so they were not included at the time of the post. Public people often turn to God. My goal is to convey to the stars that the Church is open for them and waiting.”
Each season, the singer is concerts in the Crimea, where he visits a spiritual mentor. And in March of this year Dikan came to the star in Moscow.
“Watched his new show “I” in the Kremlin and was left in awe! And after the show we went to visit Philip, continues the archdeacon. – There were present and Alla Pugacheva. Reigned homely atmosphere. Philip told me that is experiencing, what will grow his daughter Alla-Victoria and son Martin. He wants them to have a good heart. Kids are really bright and clean, already know the prayer. Philip regularly confess, and Martin and Alla-Victoria communion. Kids are brought up in the Christian spirit.”
Father Alexander will forever remain grateful to Philip, a few years ago the singer saved him from a serious illness by paying for treatment.
“I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, says Dykan. For a month lost 15 pounds, Philip noticed it and asked what was the matter. The disease is dangerous because if left untreated, it can develop into cancer. Money I had. Then Philip has supported me not only morally, but also financially. He’s a very sensitive man.”
The king of pop introduced the father of Alexander with friends Leroy Kudryavtseva, Ani Lorak, Evelina Bledans. “I attend social events just because of famous friends – continues Dykan. – Someone will be surprised, they say, why is the priest so pathetic looks? But the things I buy at the store your friends with the discount.”
