The even worse : a studly, shy, the one to which we cannot resist. As he simply says in the documentary that France 2 will broadcast, Johnny Hallyday, France’s Rock ‘ n roll, he has always dreamed of a family life, but the girls were too pretty, too easy to seduce, and too many that it is resistant to. In 1965, Johnny Hallyday’s wife, Sylvie Vartan in front of the whole of France. And then the couple separated in 1980.

The next morning, Michèle Dokan receives a phone call from Alain Donat, who was then the secretary of Johnny Hallyday.

In his autobiography, In my eyes, Johnny Hallyday will write about the mother of his daughter Laura : “I was not in the habit of hitting on girls like Nathalie, she was to share. It was a nerd with friends who had voted for Mitterrand, put scarves and trousers in velvet and went to the festival of Avignon” .
