Rolins' early sign

Dara Rolins, also known as Darin[k]a Rolincová (born Darina Gambošová, December 7, 1972) is a Slovak recording artist and entrepreneur. Her music career began at the age of nine, after being cast in television musical Zázračný autobus (1981).[1] The early role established a formula for her regular assignments as a child singer and resulted in recording her debut album Keby som bola princezná Arabela (1983) on OPUS Records.[2] By her late teens, Rolins appeared in a number of exclusively TV films of varying quality, as well as managed to deliver a series of teen pop-orientated albums, such as Darinka (1986),[3] Čo o mne vieš (1988)[4] and soundtrack Témeř ružový příběh (1990);[5] all released by Supraphon. Along with Karel Gott, she experienced a one-off success in the German-speaking region in 1986, peaking with their duet "Fang das Licht" ("Catch the Light") (the German version of their Czech duet "Zvonky štěstí") at number seven on the Austrian Singles Chart,[6] respectively at number fifteen in the fellow Germany.[7]

As she reached adulthood, her popularity had stalled in the nineties. Although, she made an attempt to replicate her local status abroad via English set What You See Is What You Get (1996).[8] The work distributed through a subsidiary of BMG, however, failed to attract the international market and singer returned to homebase to resume her former course. Sen lásky (1997)[9] that served as her initial comeback release featuring cover versions, produced a ZAI Awards-nomination within Slovak outputs.[10] Following that, she continued in publishing other dance material, namely What's My Name (2002)[11] and D1 (2005);[12] both on Epic Records. Her additional recordings included best-of compilation 1983–1998 (2005) on Bonton Music,[13] remix collection D2: Remixy (2008) by Epic[14] and Christmas album Šťastné a veselé (2009), released on Universal Music.[15] On TV, she rebuilt her presence in 2007 for one season as a co-judge of reality show Slovensko hľadá SuperStar, respectively in 2009 series of Česko Slovenská Superstar;[16] also based on United Kingdom Pop Idol. She later joined the cast of Let's Dance (2011)[17] and X Factor (2014).

Regardless of her recording achievements, Rolins posed topless in October 1999 for Czech[18] and Slovak[19] issue of a men's magazine as Playboy cover girl. She also upgraded her physical assets such as breasts prior to undergoing plastic surgery.[20] The national press speculated about a rhinoplasty as well.[21] In the new millennium, she has become the subject of more scrutiny. At first, upon a 2009 revelation regarding her factual surname printed by Plus 7 dní; for over thirty years since her first public performance, she referred to herself exclusively under an adopted name.[22] While the following year, Rolins was accused of a negligent homicide caused by her traffic collision from July 10, 2010.[23] The legal case initially dropped out due to a lack of probable cause was later re-launched.[24] Most recently, pop singer released on EMI new studio album entitled Stereo (2011),[25] receiving mixed reviews for its self-evident nude cover.[26]

Controversies[edit]

Car accident[edit]

On October 8, 2010, Rolins was officially accused by the Police of the Czech Republic of negligent manslaughter as the result of her traffic collision dated Saturday, July 10, 2010 in Prague, Czech Republic.[23] The singer, driving her Mercedes-Benz, had hit a motor scooter with a 63-year-old man named Jindřich Rotrekl,[24] who died of a lethal injury three hours after he was escorted into hospital. She would refuse all charges, however, and the case was dropped due to a lack of probable cause on November 2, 2010.[66]

New prosecution

In August 2011, the prosecution against Rolins was re-launched following a new assessment, provided on behalf of the victim's family. According to the report, Rolins' vehicle had entered the opposite direction and hit the motorcyclist.[24] On September 19, the singer was, therefore, re-interrogated by the police officers, while facing up to six years in prison.[67]

On August 13, 2012 the jury of the District Court for Prague 2 found Rolins guilty. She was suspended sentence of two years and two months to three years probation period. The singer also needs to reimburse about four million Czech crowns (approx. €160,224) damage. In addition to court costs, singer must pay compensation to the family and all costs associated with the burial of the victim. She is also banned to operate a vehicle for three years. The verdict, however, is not yet final and Rolins may appeal, which probably she will.[68][69]

Footnotes
  1. ^ In 2009, Slovak Plus 7 dní disclosed information, upon which Rolins was lately identified to be born Darina Gambošová, instead her initially provided maiden name Darina Rolincová. According to Slovak Civil registry, her father Dušan Gamboš renamed in 1980 to Rolinec, the surname of his biological father. Due to both of his parents had prematurely deceased, he was later adopted by a family named Gamboš. As stated for the magazine by singer's grandmother from the paternal side Božena Gambošová, Rolins' mother [Zlatica Rolincová] reportedly felt ashamed of being surnamed per marriage Gambošová (Gobish), thus urged spouse to rename whole family in addition.[22]
  2. ^ By 2009, Rolins' uterine sibling Jana was publicly recognized as her full sister named Jana Rolincová. As revealed by Plus 7 dní, she was actually her half-sister, originally born Jana Labasová as a result of having a different father.[29] Following years, media and/or herself used several variations of her name such as Jana Rolincová, Jana Hádlová, respectively Jana Rolincová-Hádlová.[30]
