However, a series of unfortunate events happened, one of which was a divorce with manager Robert Magic, which lasted twelve years. Broken, the singer turned to alcohol.
She applied to the Rehab Clinic in 2005. She managed to pull herself out of a difficult period and continue her life with her partner Kruno Ladišić.
In addition to her struggle with alcoholism, Ivana also lost her baby.
– It was sad, painful acceptance of all that, but I am a fighter and I accepted everything that happened. We cried, went on a pilgrimage to Maria Bistrica. We walked 64 kilometers and there I lit a candle for that little soul. I found peace in prayer – Ivana once told “Hello”.
She soon gave birth to a son, Jan.
– I faced a second pregnancy, and then a great fear of not repeating the same scenario. But here he is, thank God, he is alive, healthy, happy and cheerful. I am happy and grateful for that great gift – she said then.
Today, Ivana is engaged in fitness and filming shows about cooking, and in addition she does some additional work. She recently stated that she can do “anything”.
