Jamala’s parents scammed by Russian press
After the success of their daughter, Jamala’s parents told to the media that they fell victim to a privacy scam by Russian journalists.
Jamala’s parents stated that Komsomolskaya Pravda journalists (a Russian newspaper), went into the house of the Eurovision winner’s on false pretenses and and secretly recorded their conversations.
“My mother made them a bed, gave them food, while they were recording what they were talking about… They turned out to be Komsomolskaya Pravda journalists, who later stated they ‘visited Jamala’s relatives,’ Jamala told. “Next morning, my mother found out that they were not our acquaintances. It is simply disgusting when journalists stoop so low,” Jamala added.
