Yulia Olegovna Volkova ( _ru. Юля Олеговна Волкова, born February 20, 1985) is half of the Russian music duo t.A.T.u. along with Lena Katina.

Biography

Volkova was born in a middle-class family in Moscow. At the age of 6, Volkova enrolled in music school and began learning how to play the piano. When she was 9, Volkova became a member of the children's singing chorus Neposedi, from which she would later meet fellow t.A.T.u singer, Lena Katina.

At age 11, Volkova transferred to a school fostering artistic talent, and three years later left Neposedi to join t.A.T.u. She has insisted that she was banned from Neposedi for drinking and swearing, but Neposedi representatives deny this, saying that she simply graduated as all of their members did at a certain age.

In February 2003, Volkova was reported to have had an abortion, after being spotted at an abortion clinic in Moscow. It was later confirmed by Volkova in the 2003 documentary series "Anatomy of t.A.T.u.". In May 2004, Volkova announced that she was pregnant, her then long-time boyfriend Pavel Sidorov being the father. Daughter Viktoria Pavlovna Volkova was born on 23 September 2004 amongst controversy created when Sidorov left his wife and baby for Yulia and Viktoria. Volkova would comment, saying "Obviously we won't be celebrating a wedding."

The following summer, Volkova was diagnosed with postpartum depression which resulted in the cancellation of a concert on June 19. [ [http://paparazzi.ru/ Папарацци Новости] ] ]

Children

Volkova has two children: a four year old daughter, Viktoria, and a son, Samir.

Vocal Cyst

In early 2004, Volkova's voice began to deteriorate during the recording of t.A.T.u.'s second album, after developing a vocal fold cyst. Despite the reluctance of t.A.T.u.'s management, she underwent surgery to remove the cyst in October 2004.
