Singer Monetochka (Elizaveta Gyrdymova) said that she paid off the debt to the ex-soloist of the group "Tea for Two" Stas Kostyushkin in three parts. According to her, she did not receive wanted notices from bailiffs and learned about it from the news.
She also published screenshots confirming the payment of the debt.
“I want to quickly forget this situation, because it is cringe, guys, it is cringe, ridiculous, and I am very tired of it. I want to calmly enjoy my motherhood, because I’m still a mother, and I can’t be put in jail, and I can’t be searched for, ”said Monetochka.
Earlier it became known that Monetochka was put on the wanted list for non-payment of debts to Kostyushkin.
In April, the court ruled that Monetochka's song "Mom, I don't zigue" is a plagiarism of Kostyushkin's song "Woman, I don't dance" and ordered the singer to pay 500,000 rubles. Before the trial, Monetochka was offered to buy a song for 200 thousand rubles, the singer's lawyer Roman Lalayan told the 360 channel. Monetochka herself explained the parody of the track as follows:
“I posted the track when I was in school, I didn’t have any earnings, I didn’t have performances, I didn’t have an account on streaming services. There is still no track on any of them, and I have not sung this song for a long time. But for some reason, Kostyushkin remembered her only many years later, when something could already be shaken off me.
Monetochka was included in the list of performers who, after the start of the war, stopped performing in the country and left Russia. Now the singer lives in Lithuania. Since the beginning of the war, concerts by DDT, Noize MC, Spleen, Anacondaz, Face and other artists and groups have also been canceled in Russia.
