Mikhail Shats and Tatiana Lazareva
For more than three years, Tatyana Lazareva and Mikhail Shatz have been living separately. Tatiana, along with her youngest daughter Antonina, spends most of the time in Spain (the girl is studying there), and Mikhail works in Moscow and often visits his family abroad. After the star spouses, who had been married for more than 20 years, unexpectedly parted, rumors immediately spread in the press about their separation. Tatiana and Mikhail themselves reacted ambiguously to them, not confirming or refuting this information. To this day, it is not exactly clear whether the spouses are together now or not.

In the recent release of the 55-year-old Lazareva's YouTube show on the Lazarevatut channel, the TV presenter confirmed that there really was a breakup with 56-year-old Mikhail, and also shed light on its reasons. According to Tatiana, her unstable mental state against the background of the main disease – ulcerative colitis, was to blame. Due to an incurable, but not fatal diagnosis, Lazareva's health is constantly changing, and she is forced to maintain an emotional background with the help of antidepressants.
I take small doses of antidepressants because I have always had a spasmodic mood. Now I have become calmer after working on myself. Before, when I just started taking these medicines, everything was fine. After two or three months of treatment, this therapy began to infuriate me. She stopped taking antidepressants and divorced her husband two months later,
– told Lazareva about the reasons for parting with Shats.
We will remind that earlier Tatyana denied that there were betrayals in their marriage with Mikhail. In an interview with Irina Shikhman in the YouTube show “And Talk?” the TV presenter admitted that she herself could not forgive her partner for infidelity and would definitely leave the family:
For 20 years there have been no romances on the side. I think that one is over, the other has begun. Misha is also a decent and honest person in this sense. I cannot deceive, I do not see the point in this. If there was something like that, then I would leave both the children and my husband.

Mikhail Shats himself considers his story with Tatiana not yet fully completed. In his interview with WomanHit.ru a couple of years ago, he shared his thoughts on this matter:
All family life is a series of compromises, and this limit has not yet been studied by science. Our relationship with Tatiana is an example of such a compromise. 20 years of marriage has changed both of us a lot. It is difficult for me to describe in a few words what is happening now. I can only say that this is still a developing story.
Recall that Mikhail Shats and Tatyana Lazareva met at the KVN festival in Sochi in 1991. At first, Tatyana did not pay attention to Mikhail, but soon they began an affair. In 1998, Shatz and Lazareva got married. In marriage, they raised three children: two common daughters, Sophia and Antonina, and Tatiana's son from Stepan's previous relationship, to whom Mikhail treats as his own.
