Personal life[edit]

Verica was born in Kragujevac, her family being Orthodox Christian from the surroundings of Kragujevac. Her first marriage was to Rajko Šerifović, a drummer from Kragujevac of mixed Muslim-Orthodox parentage.[1] Verica had four miscarriages and, with her fifth pregnancy, gave birth to a daughter, Marija, on 14 November 1984. Verica's husband Rajko left her for another woman when she was nine months pregnant with Marija and had a son, Danijel Pavlović, with the other woman in 1985.[2] Marija has described her father as an abusive alcoholic that would regularly beat Verica.[3]

Šerifović's second marriage was to musician Mića Nikolić.
