In the early hours of Tuesday morning, the news of the former ice hockey star’s death was one of the biggest shocks of the day. The Miami-Dade Police Department, which was in charge of the investigation, stated that it was an ‘apparent suicide’ and did not think that there was any foul play associated with it.

Days after the incident, an Instagram post by Kolstov’s ex-wife Mikhailova indirectly accusing her of ending their marriage made public limelight. The post, dated 28 April 2020, took a big dig at girls who dated men with wife and children. Mikhailova also tagged Sabalenka’s Instagram account in an apparent accusation of the tennis player’s role in splitting her marriage.

And an appeal to all the girls who are hanging on other people's husbands with children in the family!!! This is mean !!!! This is the most amazing and the happiest time, but at the same time the most difficult, because a small child takes a lot of energy, energy and time… Maybe someday you'll be there too…
Mikhailova had written in the Instagram caption

However, Sabalenka and Kolstov made their relationship only made their relationship public in an Instagram post in July 2021. This makes Mikhailova’s claims untrue and has recently rebuffed her Instagram statement.
