Putin’s ‘love child’ abandons Instagram, sparking fears she’s been silenced
A teenager rumored to be Russian president Vladimir Putin’s secret love child has abruptly stopped posting on social media — sparking concerns from her followers that she may have been gagged.
Luiza Krivonogikh, 18, hasn’t posted anything on her Instagram account, which has amassed an 82,600-person following, for more than two months.
Her frequent posts stopped suddenly after the teen and her 46-year-old mom, Svetlana Krivonogikh, started boasting on Instagram about their $4.1 million Monte Carlo penthouse apartment, The Sun reported.
The penthouse they posted photos of and gushed about on Instagram was detailed in a trove of leaked “Pandora Papers” documents in October.
Luiza’s mother, who has long been rumored to have been Putin’s alleged mistress in the late 1990s and early 2000s, moved into the penthouse shortly after her daughter was born, according to the papers.
The leaked documents also revealed Luiza’s mom, who used to work as a cleaner and grew up in a communal apartment, now had an estimated net worth of $100 million in “shadow wealth.”
Luiza’s abrupt absence from Instagram after posting about the lavish penthouse sparked concern from her followers that she may have been silenced.
“What happened? Pa forbade the details of the luxury life to be published?” one follower commented.
Another wrote: “You completely abandoned Instagram for some reason… Please come back Luiza.”
Putin and Svetlana have never commented on their alleged relationship or Luiza’s rumored paternity.
Luiza was outed by the Russian media as Putin’s alleged daughter last year.
The teen admitted in an interview at the time that she was loving her new “limelight”, but refused to answer any questions about her alleged relation to the Russian strongman.
