On May 19, 2010 there was a scandal. Eugene Zmievets, publisher of L’Officiel magazine and president of the publishing house Parlan and Maria Nevskaya’s second husband, announced the dismissal of the editor in chief – Evelina Khromchenko, who has been working there for twelve years. One day later his wife Maria became a new editor in chief.
Nevskaya’s first husband was Igor Udalov, businessman and owner of the modeling agency President.
In the early 2000s, Maria met Eugene Zmievets, the president of the publishing house Parlan, and married him. They have two children: son Dmitry and daughter Anna. But thirteen years later they divorced. Perhaps this was not the end, but a pause.
