In July, Tatyana’s attorney, Tiffany Brown, outlined her client’s financial struggles in a divorce filing.
‘Wife is experiencing extreme financial strain. She is unable to maintain her realistic monthly expenses of just $12,000, much less [than] what she was accustomed to at $50,000,’ the filing states.
‘She has no income and does not have the same access to funds and assets that Respondent does.’
Desperate, Tatyana allegedly turned to a mutual friend to help remedy her situation.
Mark eventually took his concerns regarding his estranged wife’s solicitation to police who subsequently arrested her after a sting operation, according to The Coast News.
Along with solicitation of murder, Tatyana is facing two weapons charges — carrying and concealing three firearms not registered in her name in a vehicle, a felony; and carrying a loaded firearm in a public place not registered in her name, a misdemeanor.

In addition to a charge of solicitation of murder, she is facing two weapons charges: Carrying and concealing firearms not registered in her name in a vehicle and carrying a loaded firearm in a public place not registered in her name.
The first is a felony and the second is a misdemeanor.
Tatyana pleaded not guilty to all charges on August 4. Her bail was denied by a judge.
If found guilty on the solicitation charge, she could face up to nine years in prison.
The firearms felony charge could add an additional year to that sentence.
She was previously arrested in early June for a felony vehicle theft charge, according to records. According to the arrest report, she is being held at the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility in Santee, awaiting a court date.
The exact details of how Tatyana, who has Mark’s name tattooed on her stomach, asked for him to be killed have not been shared by police at this time.

To support her claim for enhanced support, Tatyana in her filing assessed Mark’s collection of of luxury vehicles at more than $1 million, including two Rolls Royce cars, adding that her husband also has more than $8 million in assets he could sell to support her.

In her filings, she also made alarming claims of abuse, including one story about being held at gunpoint and another of being chased around their home with a knife. She has also accused Mark of being present while she was assaulted at gunpoint by a friend of his.

In July, the Del Mar Fire Department responded to a fire at their home in multi-million dollar Rancho Reposo home, allegedly started by Tatyana. Fire officials confirmed that the home’s interior was reduced to ash from the blaze and that the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
In one divorce document, Tatyana said she was present at the time the fire broke out but that she did not know how the blaze began.
