Yann Moix then writes: “She had a heart, even when it wasn’t hers. Charlotte Valandrey is dead: she wasn’t really a friend; rather the sister I should have had”, writes the director of the film Podium who unpacks all that he has as memories with the actress. The intimacy he had with her, his HIV status, their rapprochement… He reveals everything.
“Never, I thought, could I spend my life with AIDS – his, his which would become mine. , who did not want her because of death” before concluding by stating that “Charlotte passed away without telling me, with a modesty of her own”.
This tribute, the family of Charlotte Valandrey has a hard time accepting it. This even evokes a “brief rapprochement” between Yann Moix and the actress. It was in a message posted on the actress’s Instagram account and entitled “The Truth” that her family wanted to react. “No one among the closest is aware of this complicity. What we know is a brief rapprochement without a love story when they were young but especially not much since”is it written in a press release.
“When he worked on Saturday evening on television, the columnist never answered calls from Charlotte who needed him. That’s show business, brotherly support”continues the family of the actress in this press release.
To conclude, the family decides to justify themselves to Charlotte Valandray after this press release. “We love you Charlotte and owe you this truth. Rest in peace now.”
