A world champion wrestler went after his bride during their wedding ceremony after guests received messages saying she was an escort.
Zaurbek Sidakov, 24, was getting married to his bride Madina Pliyeva, 25, in Russia’s North Caucasus region, with 500 guests in attendance, when the guests received raunchy videos featuring the bride on their mobile phones.
The raunchy videos were reportedly shared by the disgruntled wife of the bride’s alleged billionaire tycoon lover.
The messages appeared as the groom’s male friends who were throwing him in the air in a traditional dance, and while the female guests were celebrating the marriage in a room not far from the groom’s.
Freestyle wrestler Sidakov, who was due to represent Russia at the postponed 2020 Olympics, then found his bride and pulled her away by the hair.
According to reports, he left her weeping on the floor and the party was cancelled.
Madina was taken to hospital by her friends and family is now reportedly hiding away in Moscow.
Her father suffered a heart attack amid the wedding scandal, according to reports.
The groom, who was pronounced Senior World Champion in 2018 and 2019, was taken away from the party by his friends and into the mountains to “come to his senses and not to do anything rash.”
According to reports, the claim that his bride was an escort was a “complete surprise” to Sidakov, and the discovery came after guests provided wedding gifts worth more than £80,000.
An elderly guest said: “Perhaps in a less heated situation the reaction would not have been so extreme.”
The bride’s friends strongly deny the claim that she had worked as an escort and claimed that her husband had not known about her past life, since they only met in late April.
