Marriage for Jay Alexander and his Vanessa

Jay Alexander will celebrate his 50th birthday on August 1st, 2021. A special event in the life of the opera star, which he will probably celebrate without his wife Vanessa. Because as the tenor now surprisingly reports, he and Vanessa divorced a few weeks ago after 16 years together. “As it is in life. You get together, at some point you go your separate ways”, the singer says calmly during a shoot for “BRISANT” on the occasion of his milestone birthday.

The ex-spouses will bond the two children together forever. Johanna, 12, and Elias, 15, will of course also attend their father’s birthday party on an alpine pasture in the Black Forest.

Singer Heino is shocked: “The sight hurts my soul”

Singer Heino, 82, is in his thoughts with the flood victims, who destroyed entire lives in the past few days. At this point in time he was in his second home in Kitzbühel. Nevertheless, the floods hit him hard: his daughter Petra’s grave was completely destroyed. She committed suicide in 2003 when she was only 36 years old.

As the singer explained in an interview with “Bild”, he saw photos of his daughter’s grave, which show the extent of the washout. “[…] the sight hurts my soul. I stood there and prayed so often with my wife Hannelore. It is bad that my daughter’s peace and quiet was so terribly disturbed by the flood: “Despite his pain, the 82-year-old knows that other things now have priority.”[…] much more important now are the living victims of this terrible catastrophe. My condolences go to you, “said Heino.

Will Florian Silbereisen and Helene Fischer work together at DSDS in the future?

Florian Silbereisen, 39, is the new face of the casting show “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”. As head judge, the pop star is currently looking for new talent. For his commitment, however, he is said to have made some demands on RTL. This includes, among other things, that he wants to commit his ex Helene Fischer, 36, to regular appearances on the show, as “schlager.de” wants to know.

Looking for new DSDS jurors, Helene Fischer is said to have received an offer from RTL in the past. Since the singer is currently in the middle of recording her new album, she didn’t have the time to take part in the show. Florian Silbereisen could, however, imagine inviting his ex-girlfriend regularly as a guest juror. Can fans of the former Schlager dream couple look forward to joint appearances by Helene and Florian in the future?

Andrea Berg is officially the hit queen

They are Germany’s most successful pop singers: Andrea Berg, 55, and Helene Fischer, 36. Both can be proud of their careers. While Helene Fischer has made herself rare in recent years, Andrea Berg is organizing her “home game” concerts in Aspach under special conditions. Who is the real German hit queen? An award has now clarified that.

The “Mosaik” interpreter now received an award from “Smago.de” in the specially tailored category “The hit queen (subtitle: 20-year hit anniversary of her cult evergreen ‘You lied to me a thousand times’)”. Of course, “Schlager Queen” is not an official title, but the Krefeld native was touched by this award and is already looking forward to the time after Corona:

Dear ones, thank you very much for this award! 20 years is an incredibly long time in which we have experienced so many beautiful and unforgettable moments together. There won’t be a single concert in which ‘You lied to me a thousand times’ will be missing. When people always recognize from the first note what is coming and then start to romp and scream – for me that is an indescribably beautiful feeling every time on stage. Singing, dancing and having fun together – we have so sorely missed all of this in the past few months. Now we can finally meet again personally at our special home game in Aspach and celebrate together. It feels like a new life to me. In January we will continue with eight concerts on our MOSAIK-Live Arena Tour. I’m really looking forward to seeing you all again!
