The Russian hunk risks being sent back home
‘Artem‘s just gone to sort his visa which needs to be done before
the New Year,’ said Kara during a last-minute Christmas
The hunky dancer risks being sent back home to Russia if the
paperwork doesn’t go through.
Last month Artem faced criticism when his ex-wife, American dancer Giselle Peacock, alleged she the ballroom dancer used their relationship to further his career in the States.
She claims he dumped her just eight months after their wedding – on the day he was picked to star in US show So You Think You Can Dance.
‘When Artem and I got married I believed it was for love,’ she says. ‘But for a long time after we split I questioned if, underneath it all, he was just looking for a green card.’
