Pop star Olaf Malolepski (75) worries about his wife Sonja. The 70-year-old suffers from breast cancer, like the musician of the former hit band Die Flippers in an interview with the “Bild” newspaper has betrayed. “Unfortunately, Sonja did not tolerate the chemotherapy at all. There were complications,” explains Malolepski.
“We remain confident”
She is now in a clinic for further examinations. The 75-year-old is “very worried” about his loved one. “But we remain confident, my wife is incredibly strong. We stick together as a family,” said Malolepski. The couple has been married since 1971 and celebrated their golden wedding anniversary that year. They have two children together.
