A STUDENT said to be Vladimir Putin’s secret daughter has celebrated her 18th birthday by DJ-ing at a trendy Moscow club.
Luiza Rozova, also known as Elizaveta Krivonogikh, was reportedly seen for the first time being driven by an official government car to the packedvenue in the Russian capital.
The 68-year-old Russian strongman has never acknowledged her as being his daughter, after her existence was first reported on four months ago.
He is rumoured to have fathered her with Svetlana Krivonogikh, 45, who it’s claimed is a cleaner-turned-millionaire who owns a nightspot featuring "erotic shows”.
According to local media reports, “numerous” Interior Ministry police in plainclothes from a special unit normally deployed to counter extremism were on duty at Rovesnik for the birthday bash.
Some journalists were expelled from venue which describes itself as a “cool and affordable bar and art space”.
Luiza was not named in advance but billed as a “super secret guest from St. Petersburg” and the venue was packed for her performance.
The birthday girl wore a baseball cap and sipped wine, when not on the decks.
She has refused to confirm findings by Bradford University visual computer expert Hassan Ugail that she shows a “phenomenal resemblance to the Russian president”.
But Luiza admitted to Russian GQ that she “probably” looks “similar” to a young Putin while adding “there are a lot of people who resemble Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin).”
Her 18th celebrations kicked off last week in St Petersburg partying with friends.
On her cake were the words in English: "Pretty woman turns 18.”
One friend Anzhelika Savich posted: “You are the most warm, sincere, caring and decent person I have ever met.
“And of course the most fashionable fashion girl, the most stylish pretty woman (officially woman)!
“Keep radiating with your warmth. I love you very much.”
Later the pal added in English: "It's time for adulthood.”
A video showed Luiza blowing out the candles and cutting the cake while other footage shows her on a limo trip to a bar.
Last night she had arrived in Moscow and joked she arrived in a simple yellow taxi to the venue
But reports say she was in fact driven in a “government” BMW 7 previously assigned to the Culture Minister, and also used by the Vatican’s ambassador in Russia.
The driver appears to have worked for the Russian foreign ministry and has friends in Putin’s Kremlin administration, according to reports.
In November, a report in Proekt – or Project – suggested her mother Putin’s lover in the late 1990s and early 2000s, including the period when he headed Russia’s FSB counterintelligence service.
The report claimed Svetlana now has a £76 million fortune including a significant property portfolio, and is a shareholder in a major Russian bank, making Luiza an heiress.
Putin’s spokesman said when the story originally broke that the love child allegations were “not very convincing” and “unfounded”.
Putin’s relationship to Svetlana supposedly ended around the time he was first romantically linked to Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Alina Kabaeva, now 37, head of a major pro-Kremlin media company.
Putin has two adult daughters Maria, 35, and Katerina, 34, from his marriage to former Kremlin first lady Lyudmila Putina, which ended in 2013.
