Yesterday, Kristoff St. John’s fiancée posted on Instagram that she was unable to attend his funeral because she was denied of an emergency Visa. Kseniya Mikhaleva, who is from Russia and currently lives there, got engaged with the famous actor in August of last year. Her permission to see her fiancée one last time left her obviously very heart broken.

“Several weeks ago I applied for an “emergency” visa for the funeral to say goodbye my fiancé and beloved. Answer was “No”.


She stated how she felt in her post about how devastated she was about not being able to attend her fiancée’s funeral.

“My heart is broken. I am going through this with a huge pain in my heart, and realize that I don’t have opportunity to say goodbye to him and put flowers on his grave. It is not right, not fair.”

Mikhaleva expressed how St. John was more than just a companion to her. “In the two years that we were together, he taught me so much – how to love and be loved, how to open the best in other people, how to help people, and simply how to be a good human being. We planned to get married; we had many plans in the future together. With him gone, I have no idea what to do.”
