In an autobiography devoted to Michel Berger, a former collaborator of Johnny Hallyday evokes his strained relations with the singer. According to him, Laeticia Hallyday would have liked to clean up around the artist.
It has now been more than four years since Johnny Hallyday died, leaving behind him, Laeticia, his last wife and his four children. If his legacy has caused a lot of ink to flow, here is that a biography written around Michel Berger is once again talking about the wife of the Taulier. In this book, sound engineer and mixer Jean-Pierre Janiaud confides in the author about the singer of That I love you. If this professional has long collaborated with Johnny Hallyday, his relations have tarnished. According to him, the responsible would be Laeticia Hallyday.
He recounts thus: “His wife Laeticia did a lot of cleaning, not always well suited around Johnny. I was one of the last to be banished from his close entourage. She had only one idea in mind: to fire everyone. She did really well… and badly, I think.” Jean-Pierre Janiaud then shares his sadness : “It hurt me a lot. It doesn’t matter, it was like that. I had many years of working with him on stage and in the studio, and he gave me a lot of pleasure” .
“Beware, it’s the devil in curls”
This is not the first time that some collaborators of Johnny Hallyday openly criticize Laeticia Hallyday. Indeed, according to information from Parisian, relatives of the Taulier would have warned him : “Beware, it’s the devil in curls”. According to them, the mother of Jade and Joy would have “cleans up Johnny’s entourage by eliminating people who could no longer bring him anything”. She would have even forbidden Nathalie Baye, mother of Laura Smet, to visit the singer when he was hospitalized. Confidences that will not improve the image of Laeticia Hallyday.
