Russian Ballet Villain Masterminds Acid Attack Against Rival Dancer!

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadDance

Pavel Dmitrichenko russian ballet villain acid attack Sergei Filin arrested burns ivan the terrible

Yuck! It's like a horrible cross between Black Swan, Showgirls, & Shattered Glory: The Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan Story!

A Russian ballet dancer named Pavel Dmitrichenko overcome with anger and jealous allegedly masterminded an atrocious attack against one of his rivals, paying two thugs to splash his face with sulfuric acid!

Unfortunately, this sad tale wasn't torn from the pages of a hot new production — it really happened!

The victim, Bolshoi Artistic Director Sergei Filin, suffered third-degree burns and may lose his vision!

Pavel, who apparently already admitted guilt to Russian police, grew famous in Russia, ironically, after playing iconic villains like Ivan the Terrible in his ballets!

How insanely tragic!

Competitive spirit is great and all, but it's mortifying to learn of people acting so maliciously toward one another!!

    Hi!

    First of all, I REALLY want to sponsor you with some baby clothes from my webshop!

    I'm running my own company called Lowin' Productions making graphical illustrations.
    I have a contract with Gallerix(a big postcard & poster company in Sweden) and they sell four of my illustrations on postcards, in all their eighty stores in Sweden.
    I also sell totebags with my illustration printed on them in a Swedish store called Tjallamalla.

    In Russia people are forced into admitting crimes they didn't commit all the time. I don't buy it for a second

    He didn't splash acid in the face of a rival dancer but the director because he wouldn't give his girlfriend (another dancer) any lead roles.
