Tarkan's Billionaire Fan

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Vatan reportTurkish paper Vatan is circulating more celebrity gossip about Tarkan, this time about a private invitation by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich to perform for him in England for nearly half a million dollars.

The report claims that the offer had come from the Russian businessman - who is a Tarkan fan - last year. The artist had to decline due to working on his award-winning 2007 album Metamorfoz, but accepted another offer for June of this year.

Abramovich is most famous outside Russia as the owner of Chelsea Football Club, an English Premiership football team, and for his wider involvement in European football.

Vatan's celebrity section is known for its unsubstantiated rumours, having previously reported that Tarkan is in talks to star in a film production and in the studio for a summer single, while also claiming that the star was preparing to finally wed his partner and help build a school in an impoverished region of Turkey.

Most of these press speculations by Vatan have yet to be collaborated by other stories, or confirmed by official sources.
