Biography

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 the television musical Zázračný autobus (1981). 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. By her late teens, Rolins appeared in a number of made-for-TV films of varying quality, as well as managing to deliver a series of teen pop-orientated albums, such as Darinka (1986), Čo o mne vieš (1988) and soundtrack Témeř ružový příběh (1990), 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, and number fifteen in Germany.
As she reached adulthood, her popularity had stalled in the nineties. However, she made an attempt to replicate her local status abroad via the English set What You See Is What You Get (1996). The work distributed through a subsidiary of BMG, however, failed to attract the international market and she returned to homebase to resume her former course. Sen lásky (1997), which served as her initial comeback release featuring cover versions, produced a ZAI Awards-nomination within Slovak outputs. Following that, she continued in publishing other dance material, namely What's My Name (2002) and D1 (2005); both on Epic Records. Her additional recordings included best-of compilation 1983–1998 (2005) on Bonton Music, remix collection D2: Remixy (2008) by Epic and Christmas album Šťastné a veselé (2009), released on Universal Music. On TV, she rebuilt her presence in 2007 for one season as a co-judge of reality show Slovensko hľadá SuperStar, and in the 2009 series of Česko Slovenská Superstar, also based on United Kingdom Pop Idol. She later joined the cast of Let's Dance (2011) and X Factor (2014).
Besides her recording achievements, Rolins posed topless in October 1999 for the Czech and Slovak issue of a men's magazine as a Playboy cover girl. She also upgraded her physical assets such as breasts prior to undergoing plastic surgery. The national press speculated about a rhinoplasty as well. In the new millennium, she has become the subject of more scrutiny. First, there was 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. The following year, Rolins was accused of a negligent homicide caused by her July 10, 2010 traffic collision. The legal case, initially dropped due to a lack of probable cause, was later re-launched. Most recently, pop singer released a new studio album on EMI entitled Stereo (2011). Receiving mixed reviews, the work featured an explicit, almost nude cover.

Biography

Early years

Dara Rolins, or Darina Rolincová, was born Darina Gambošová on December 7, 1972 in Bratislava, former Czechoslovak Socialist Republic. She is the younger daughter of Zlatica Rolincová (1945) and Dušan Gamboš (1948), parents of Slovak ancestry. She was raised with her half-sister Jana Labasová (1964), better identified as Jana Hádlová-Rolincová per marriage with Czech record producer Daniel Hádl.
When four years old, Rolincová provisionally appeared in front of television cameras during Matelko, produced by STV. The regular program that "starred" a hand puppet named Drobček (Petit) was crafted for children. In 1978, encouraged by winning talent contest Hledáme mladé talenty (Young Talents Wanted), she started to participate in local musical ensembles such as the Children's Choir of Czechoslovak Radio in Bratislava. Later on, she had piano lessons.

Controversies

Car accident

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. The singer, driving her Mercedes-Benz, had hit a motor scooter with a 63-year-old man named Jindřich Rotrekl, who died of a lethal injury three hours after he was escorted into hospital. She would deny all charges, however, and the case was dropped due to a lack of probable cause on November 2, 2010.

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 lane and hit the motorcyclist. On September 19, the singer was, therefore, re-interrogated by the police officers, while facing up to six years in prison.

On August 13, 2012 the jury of the District Court for Prague 2 found Rolins guilty. She got a 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, the singer must pay compensation to the family and all costs associated with the burial of the victim. She is also banned from operating a vehicle for three years. The verdict, however, is not yet final and Rolins may appeal, which she probably will.
