Sylvie Vartan and Johnny Hallyday have formed a mythical couple of years yéyé. Despite their divorce, the two singers have remained close and have never stopped loving each other. However Sylvie Vartan will be absent at the interment, which takes place today in Saint-Barthélémy.
The body of Johnny Hallyday must be buried today in the cemetery of Lorient, on the island of Saint-Barthelemy. A ceremony will be held in the strictest of family privacy, even if all the relatives of the rocker will not be reunited. According to the information from Closer, Sylvie Vartan, the first wife of the singer will not be present during the burial. “Johnny will always remain in my heart and I couldn’t bear to see him put in the earth,” she said in a statement. According to the weekly, the singer, too proven, could not make the trip up to the island and is expected to return to Los Angeles, the United States, in the course of the week.
Sylvie Vartan was one of the first to react to the death of her ex-husband, self-confident ” as all France, my heart is broken “. For close to fifteen years, their relationship, well-publicized, has been made of happy moments but also of ruptures and tearing. Together they had David, the only son of the singer.
This last will be present with his sister, Laura Smet, born to the union of Johnny Hallyday and Nathalie Baye, during his burial at Saint-Barthélémy. A presence that comforts Sylvie Vartan, even if it has not hidden his sadness to see the idol of young people buried so far from those who love him so much.”
