“I will have to repay the tax debt. It is my duty,” said the widow of the rockstar in a river interview to be released Thursday.
“On the figures, there have been a lot of fantasies,” added the singer’s wife, without denying the amount advanced by the weekly of a tax debt of 34 million euros.
The lawyer of Laeticia Hallyday had announced on July 3 the conclusion of a “final agreement” between the widow of Johnny and Laura Smet, who had first seized the justice to contest the will of his father drawn up in the United States. The agreement, the details of which have not been released, has ended more than two years of court proceedings.
According to Paris Match, Laeticia Hallyday keeps “the houses and the debts” and the singer’s eldest daughter “receives a few million euros and symbolic objects that belonged to her father”.
For her part, Laura Smet, refusing to detail the agreement on the inheritance but decided “to re-establish certain truths”, confided on RTL Wednesday evening “that there will (it) never be possible peace (with her ex-mother-in-law). ”
“She crossed this line, which is to prevent us from saying goodbye to our father (…) I tell you things that are with me a tear that I can never heal (…) She committed l ‘irreparable by preventing us from seeing it,’ added the singer’s daughter.
Laura Smet confides however “that she has no desire at all to spend (her) life taking care of this story which is still sordid”.
In Paris Match, Laeticia assures that “we have found a form of appeasement”, presenting herself as “the guardian of the memory” of Johnny by supervising the use of his work and the pursuit of the projects initiated by the star. “The film on his last motorcycle road trip, with his friends, a few months before his death, will be released in November,” she said.
Laeticia Hallyday takes the opportunity to formalize her relationship with the businessman Pascal Balland, during this interview carried out in Marnes-la-Coquette, near Paris, where Johnny died in December 2017.
