Johnny Hallyday’s daughter to contest late French rock star’s will
‘The French Elvis’ left all his property and artistic rights to his widow, Laeticia.
The daughter of late French rocker Johnny Hallyday plans to contest her father’s will, which leaves all his property and artistic rights “exclusively” to his widow Laeticia.
Laura Smet discovered the contents of Hallyday’s will “with amazement and pain”, a note from her lawyers said.
The communique added that “not a guitar, not a motorbike, and not even the signed cover of the song ‘Laura’ which is dedicated to her” has been left to Ms Smet.
Her lawyers said the will — signed under Californian law — is contradicted by French law.
Laetitia Hallyday was the fourth wife of the man dubbed the “French Elvis”, who died in December.
