    Born in Adjud, Romania
    Nee Angela Burlacu
    Operatic Soprano
    She defined an opera diva, notorious for temper tantrums, missing costume fittings and canceling appearances at the last minute.
    Although she left her first husband for tenor Roberto Alagna, she retained his surname because he's from a prominent Romanian family.
    She clashed with the Metropolitan Opera's general manager over wearing a blonde wig for a production of 'Carmen,' with her capitulating after he threatened, 'The wig is going on, with or without you.'
    The Lyric Opera of Chicago fired her for 'unprofessional' behavior (2007).
    When her marriage to Roberto disintegrated in 2009, they verbally attacked each other on their respective websites.
    Her voice is acclaimed for its dark tone and enormous range.
    She attributed her tell-it-like-it-is nature to growing up under the oppressive Ceausescu regime.
    She adopted her niece after her sister, fellow opera diva, Elena Dan, was killed in 1996.
    Known for her hourglass figure, FHM listed her as one of the most beautiful women in the world.
    Billboard Magazine described her as, 'Talented, glamorous and every bit the diva.'
