Fiancee of deceased artist remembered about the brightest moments of life together. Alexander Kutsevol still can not believe that Oleg Yakovlev’s not around any more. The girl dispelled the rumors that are spreading some newspaper, and also spoke in detail about the last song of the artist.
The ex-soloist of group “Ivanushki International” Oleg Yakovlev died on June 29. Many fans still can’t believe that their pet is no longer alive. A week after the death of his common-law wife, Alexandra Kutsevol, began to communicate with journalists. The correspondent of the “StarHit” met the girl in one of the Moscow cafes. Sasha remained undaunted and explained that I can’t even cry, because not yet realized the loss. The choice of the singer frankly told about the last days of the artist and his farewell song, which will be released in the fall. Oleg Yakovlev recorded before his death-song of farewell
Nine days after the death of Oleg. You have somehow realised that its not around anymore?
I still don’t understand. I don’t have a second of free time, constantly answer the phone. Probably, Oleg’s so protective, and perhaps this is a psychological defense. I accepted the fact that Oleg is no more. But it will take time to catch up. As if he left alone to rest. When my time comes, I will see him. I feel that he’s near. Oleg’s not a dream. I ask, but he never comes at night. The room was empty…—
Someone is near you now?
Yes, the parents came. Close friends support. I am not alone, never leave me. Can’t cry, sometimes only tears appear. Thought I’d be bawling, because quite emotional and whiny in life. I never buried and didn’t know what my reaction would be. I had to be collected from the moment when I found out that Oleg died. Some condemn me, that I communicate with journalists. But I have no other choice. Friends Oleg was little. They are not public figures. After the 40 days, I’ll do the publications discrediting his name, suing the publication. I think Oleg would have done the same.
And why the decision was made to cremate the body? You talked about death?
We talked about it. Like normal people, we understand that death is natural. Since Oleg is originally from Mongolia, it was still a certain upbringing and traditions. Don’t know why any indicate that was to do the Oleg with his body. This savagery! If he decided so, so, so wanted his soul. —
All speculate why Oleg died, he is credited with a number of diseases…
The cause of death was heart failure, while hospitalized with pneumonia. He was self-medicating: asked to buy cough drops, drinking hot tea. Now, nothing matters. Oleg missed a lot… he was connected to ventilator because he wanted to help the heart. The important thing is that Oleg wasn’t in a coma, and he appealed to a medical facility. Actually, the latest tests were good. We thought about the upcoming statement. Oleg was worried that there was no TV. He loved to watch the news in the morning and at night. I loved the biathlon and football. Such a fan of the TV. Oleg rarely got sick, never complained about the condition. He had good health, genes. No one could believe that he’s 47 years old. Oleg was always happy, childish. Had he these periods of soul-searching, some of his “cockroaches”, but it quickly returned to its normal state. Shortly before the trip to the hospital he was a little squeaking. I asked him what happened. He said, “I Wanted to pakati”. Never complained. All the situations pass through itself. I always admired and will admire. I have the feeling that in five years of marriage, I was the fire, water and copper pipes. —
What have you learned from him?
Oleg made me a strong man who is oblivious to the hurtful words people. He taught how to present yourself, look spectacular. Sometimes it came to insanity. He believed that a woman should Wake up in the morning to be with hair, make-up. It was important for him as it looks. Now I tell people, if you see that they are beautiful. This Yakovlev school… Taught me how to drive a car. I can still hear his voice when I go driving. The first time we did circles on the garden ring. He abruptly drove and explained. I’ll write a book that will collect memories of Oleg. —
What traditions did you have at home? How to spend your time?
We can sit at home, watch the music channel and artists to discuss their change of image and so on. Now I can’t imagine what I’m going to do it. When we came to the cottage, throwing Darts. Loser or washed dishes, or have a fire and cook kebabs. Sometimes just fooling around. In fact, Oleg is a professional actor, he perfectly joked.—
He was blamed for things that are not cooked, did not really know how to do around the house?
I wasn’t offended by it. House cooked only Oleg. Sometimes I tried to help, but he said, “don’t Even go”. And he was on the “you” technique.—
You are greatly changed in appearance during life together with Oleg… you are always stimulated to look gorgeous?
Yes, even at the farewell ceremony I was wearing heels, though not in a skirt. He often told me, told me: “Lose weight”. Never made harsh comments, and always approached the situation with humor. We have to become better. Oleg wasn’t wearing shorts, and my appearance started. Once I talked him into it: more long pants in the summer he did not go. —
You were not afraid, when Oleg left the band “Ivanushki International” that his solo career will fail?
No, of course. After he left, when his solo song aired a popular radio station. I believed it was supported by Oleg in this difficult decision. Was a little engine that said, “Come on.” He did everything intuitively. We’ve had debate about what song stands out. But Oleg liked to make my own decisions. He couldn’t say strict “no”, it was necessary to explain. As was the case with health. He was told not to self-medicate. There was no reason to sound the alarm.
Maybe he’s crippled health in a busy schedule of performances?
He gave himself without reserve to the public, this is a profession artist. Oleg kept. At the last concert was singing live a song, danced and entertained the people. He was worried that the voice did not work well, but played the “bullfinches”. He had some hidden resources.—
Oleg made up for energy stocks?
Sometimes he left one somewhere in Europe and had to walk for hours to enjoy the architecture. Oleg was very well read. He told the story of the creation of some of the houses and streets. He did not like the uneducated, stupid people. Oleg refused to communicate with those who do not know any primitive things. He told me that as a child my mother and sister used to read serious books. Oleg used to it. Until the last day of his life he never ceased to be formed. When in the entrance of the exhibited books, he is always a part of them was taken. He lacks knowledge. —
Some verses or records left from Oleg?
Yes, the apartment are many of them scattered. Will use them while working on the book. In the winter he wrote the song “don’t cry”, which we wanted to publish. Oleg then said that he dedicated it to me. “What a depressing song?” – I asked. He discovered his talent as a composer and author. The lyrics of a song are very sad. The line “you don’t even know who you lose” made me tingle. Could not understand why he chose such a word. You could sing “throw”. But he said, “I like it”. When doing the track “blue Jeans”, the work was difficult. He already offered to release “don’t cry.” I explained to him that the song is not suitable for summer, better to wait until the fall. It will be released for 40 days.—
Are you going to erect a monument to Oleg, where they could gather fans?
Burial will be now solved this issue with Igor Matvienko. A place for fans, where they can come, socialize and remember Oleg. It would be very selfish just to dispel the dust, so I decided to do so. He is always in my heart. I think Oleg would not be against it. Loved him incredibly. I write a lot of words of support, condolences. People say I sit and cry. I knew that he was loved, but not thought so much.
You keep a picture of his phone messages?
Of course. Something I will share will leave something for yourself. On the eve of the funeral it was necessary to choose pictures of Oleg, I spent doing a few hours. It wasn’t easy. Open one frame, remember what happened in that moment. When he increased the number of subscribers in the blog I understand why they do it. They wanted to know something, I don’t have the right to remain silent. Had to help them survive, think of this situation, so I decided to share some photos. Maybe this is my mission, the cross. So I’m now a guide who would take me by the hand and led, because I go to the touch. —
As you had written Oleg in the phone?
Michiel and I had Sasha. He didn’t understand why that’s been recorded many. “Because I am an adult, I’m almost 50 years, and Michiel”, – asked he. I told him: “Look at yourself in the mirror, where is 50?” He often joked and pretended to be a dog. Oleg was a great kid. Could run into each other in the apartment or he could bite me. Conflict situation was resolved quickly: we both easily appeased. Basically, quarreled over work. I told him: “You’re an artist, you have to smile and sing.” He wanted to control some points, because the Eastern man, and then woman in some commands. It was impossible to be offended. We understand that it is not eternal. All our differences were just creative. Oleg has always been a simple guy, without any star disease. It was impossible not to love. —
Whether you are planning to have a baby? Talked about kids?
We were so intent on the present day and our relationship, so did not raise such issues. We have not lived according to the scheme: to marry, then give birth to a child, to die in one day. This was not necessary. Oleg saw in another sense. Our goals coincided. The cat and the cat… We were awesome together. I never touched children, those babies whose moms post on social networks. Basically, they irritated me. Never had tantrums, that I urgently have to have. There was never such a desire to abstract the child from anyone.
You now live in the apartment of Oleg?
Of course. While I didn’t go into the legal aspects. I’m more concerned about the realization of his creative ideas: book, release the clip, the concert of memory of Oleg… We did not discuss the issue of the will etc when we lived together.
Many publications wrote that Oleg had consumed alcohol…
Let them talk about it. Those who believe have the right to give such information, will receive an energy boomerang. It hurts me to read all this. Only close friends were aware that I loved Oleg dreamed of. Even Andrey Grigoriev-Apollos did not know much. Now people are actively discussing the latest pictures of Oleg, and some write that he looks sick. It is not so! Just Oleg’s Asian appearance, he is dark-skinned. —
Who helped you to organize a farewell, supported after the death of Oleg?
Igor Matvienko, the guys from “Ivanushki-International”… When I was still in the hospital, got there Irina Dubtsova, Maya Serikova. They brought some money, helped me, because I knew nothing about what to do when the person dies. I thought the first day will die if he will not. Just stop the heart. I am grateful for loved ones that are still alive. I have nothing to fear. After I learned what death is, I’m more afraid of nothing. Now I’m going to be Frank and sometimes cynical. I have nothing to lose. When I say that everything will be fine, I corrected them: “Not good, but fine.” —
Oleg could anticipate death? What was your last conversation?
In recent months, said a couple of times: “What are you going to do if I’m gone? For example, would go to live in another country forever.” But I didn’t pay attention to it. And the song he was depressed, there is an obvious goodbye. He must’ve sensed something. You can’t call our conversation in the hospital ward of the latter. I have a feeling that you left something. Always spontaneously admitted Oleg in love, because I was overwhelmed with emotions. He asked to smoke, even when I was in intensive care. He chose the most strong cigarette, Smoking a lot. We discussed future plans, concerts, and then I just said to him: “Goodbye, till tomorrow”.
