The only native daughter of Armen Dzhigarkhanyan - Elena died 30 years ago.
A 23-year-old girl, along with her young man, was poisoned by carbon monoxide while in a car with a running engine in a garage.
In a frank interview with the magazine "Caravan of stories", the former wife of the actor Vitalina Tsymbalyuk-Romanovskaya stated that she did not know the true cause of the death of the artist's daughter, as he not only did not like to talk about this topic, but during the whole time of their acquaintance he had never visited Helen’s grave . Vitalina believes that the girl could commit suicide.
By the way, the pianist's version is not without reason, the fact is that Elena suffered from an incurable genetic disease - Huntington's chorea. As a rule, this disease makes itself felt at the age of 3–40 years old (although it can begin at any age) and in the early stages is expressed by insignificant coordination disorders with sudden, uncontrollable movements. Then the symptoms of sleep disturbance, speech, problems with the process of swallowing and chewing join to these signs. As a rule, after the first symptoms appear, the patient lives no more than 15–20 years and dies from complications: pneumonia, heart disease, trauma, or suicide.
