Maria Callas was madly in love with the millionaire Aristotle Onassis, left her husband for him; Onassis divorced his wife who did not forgive his betrayal. Mary knew how to get it what he wants, and that was Onassis.

Onassis soon began to betray Mary and not pay enough attention to her. The blossom of love passed quickly. He started humiliating the singer in front of everyone, just as she humiliated her mother when she was a child. And then he made her get rid of the baby, she was 43 years old. It is difficult to force a woman of those years, well-situated and well-known, to get rid of a child if she does not want to. It seemed to the people around her that Mary had opposed the idea, but not too much. After all, she did not want to lose Onassis! So the child disappeared. The abortion millionaire also gave Maria a fur coat.

And then the millionaire left her. He married Jackie Kennedy. Maria completely lost her voice from that shock and could no longer sing as before.

But then she met the couple Di Stefano. Giuseppe was also an opera singer, he was moved by Maria's suffering and began to help her in every possible way to become a star again. Di Stefano thought that work heals! Giuseppe's wife also supported the singer, until she found out that she was sleeping with her husband. But they were friends! The woman thought she was Maria's friend Ѝ wrote her a painful letter in which she asked: “You know that my husband is my everything! How could he? How could he ?! ” But Mary did not reply to her letter…

And then Giuseppe left Maria. Tired of his wife's jealousy and Maria's depression… Maria was left alone again with her piles of money, jewelry and lots of fur.

During the long lonely nights, she wrapped herself in fur, stroking it with her hands on which ѝ diamond rings shone…

And then that "white suicide" happened - she walked, ate, slept, but no longer lived. Because without love there is no life…

When the singer died, the wife of her last lover Giuseppe di Stefano said words that still make her shiver.

"Maria committed 'white suicide.' She did not raise her hand to herself; he simply lost interest in life. He stopped living. It was broken, it lost its meaning. The energy of her life was gone. "She had nothing to sing about and nothing to live on, and there was no need."
