Former host of “Battle of Psychics” on TNT Sergei Safronov, suspended from the show after being accused of accepting bribes for tips, justified himself for insulting celebrities. On Instagram, he wrote that he had recently rethought his attitude towards colleagues.
Safronov admitted that until recently he thought of representatives of show business as a “ball of kissing snakes.” “But the reaction of my colleagues, who, despite what happened, forgave me and now support me with calls, wise advice, help in finding doctors, changed my point of view,” the illusionist admitted.
He added that he was ashamed of the negativity that he allowed towards colleagues. According to Safronov, the latest events in his life have shown the real appearance of the people who surround him, and many of them have become “close and very valuable” for the illusionist. The former host of the “Battle of Psychics” also emphasized that for 20 years he had not insulted anyone and always tried to extinguish conflicts in companies.
“As for justice, here I also intend to go to the end: I will definitely defend my business reputation, the right to privacy and opinion in court,” Safronov concluded.
Earlier Safronov spoke about the “terrible conditions” of work in the program. According to him, 14 years in the “Battle of Psychics” have been hard work. For example, when the program was filmed outdoors, there were no toilets on the sites, and Safronov himself simply “was in the forest and conducted a test.”
At the end of November 2020, Safronov was suspended from participating in the “Battle of Psychics” and accused of trying to deceive the project team. The decision was made after the show participant Alina Verdish published a video in which she accused Safronov of taking bribes. She claims that for the money, the presenter reported the correct answers to the tests. Verdish also said that the presenter made negative statements about representatives of show business. Safronov reacted to the decision of the TV channel, saying that he intends to go to court to challenge the false information.
