The neighbor of the deceased comedian Alexander Chaliapin told how he discovered the body of the artist.
According to him, at about 01: 00–02: 00 he woke up from a loud female scream. When the man went out into the entrance, he saw his wife, who had died with an unknown man. They refused help and did not explain the cause of the noise.
I offered to help. "No, no" - and I heard that they were already calling the police on the phone. That's it, they went downstairs, on this I returned to my apartment. I didn't even know what happened. I thought, well, it happens - maybe they had a fight, - he noted.
The neighbor said that he remembered Chaliapin as a person who loved to drink. Many attributed his craving for alcohol to the bohemian lifestyle that is characteristic of many artists.
Yes, it happened, of course. I rarely saw him, but in general, when I saw him, mostly drunk. These are actors - when they are doing well, there is shooting, then this is one mood. Creative people are worried when they are not invited to appear. Maybe it is connected with the coronavirus, - said the man.
He added that previous residents also saw Chaliapin worried and drunk, reports 5-tv.ru.
As NEWS.ru wrote, earlier Shalyapin's colleague Karen Arutyunov said that the deceased suffered from alcohol addiction. He admitted that it was she who could lead to a tragic outcome.
