“And I have a companion – Jalil Lespert – who calms me down a lot. He has a lot of courage, because he accepts my grief and sometimes being in a threesome relationship. It’s not easy for him, but he does it with a lot of love, intelligence, with an extremely touching look at my children and me. It’s up to me to question myself and move forward. The most difficult part of this bereavement is that I I didn’t divorce Johnny, life took it from me. I still wear my wedding ring, I’ll never be able to remarry. But today, I manage to stop feeling guilty for being in love and happy.” Heartbreaking secrets about the couple she forms with Jalil Lespert.
