This is the viral moment pro-Putin rapper Timati hits the headlines again and shaves off his beard after losing at ‘rock paper scissors’ to his young daughter.
The 36-year-old hip hop star, who is famous for his pro-Putin stance and considers controversial Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov among his pals, shared the video of his shaving off his beard on Instagram for his army of 14.5 million followers.
The clip has gone viral with 4.5 million views.
He accompanied the video with the message: “My beard has gone, but promises to return in two weeks.”
The Russian star was playing ‘rock paper scissors’ with his five-year-old daughter Alisa from his relationship with model and beauty queen Alena Shishkova, 27.
If Timati had won the game, he was going to choose the movie they watched that evening. However, if Alisa was victorious, she insisted on her dad shaving off his beard.
Netizen ‘HomemadeByPj’ said: “Looking good, like you are five years younger.”
‘Proofgod’ commented: “Making a fun bet with your kid is cool.”
‘Rimeanitsirk’ wrote: “I always wanted to see what he looks like without a beard.”
In December 2019, Timati was forced to lie on the restaurant floor by a fake SWAT team set up by a prankster pal during a visit to the US.
Timati, who reportedly loves extreme sports, said on social media: “I have to admit that I did not get what was happening right away. Things like this always happen in the US and it is better to not move in those moments.”
