She followed her father who moved to Miami and, passionate about fashion and design, quickly began a modeling career across the Atlantic.

Her father, a friend of Johnny Hallyday’s, opened Amnesia, a nightclub in Miami. He took the opportunity to introduce his daughter to the singer. Despite their age difference, it was love at first sight. On March 25, 1996, Johnny and Laeticia get married. In November 2004, the couple adopts Jade, a little girl of Vietnamese origin, born on August 3, 2004. Four years later, they welcome Joy, also of Vietnamese origin, born on July 27, 2008.

A committed woman, Laeticia has confirmed her unwavering attachment to the cause of the most disadvantaged. She is a goodwill ambassador for Unicef and has visited the field on several occasions, for example in Mozambique, Burkina Faso and Senegal.

On 5 December 2017, Johnny Hallyday died at the age of 74 at his home in Marnes-la-Coquette. On 9 December 2017, a religious ceremony is organised at La Madeleine in Paris. Two days later, on the 11th, the singer was buried in the Lorient cemetery on the island of Saint-Barthélémy.
