"Is Alain Delon under the influence of the one his children present as his lady-in-waiting, Hiromi Rollin?" This is the question that has animated the debates for several months now. On the one hand, Alain Delon's three children - who filed a complaint against her for violence against a vulnerable person, abuse of weakness, moral harassment, embezzlement of correspondence and animal abuse - claim that this is the case. On the other hand, Hiromi Rollin, who identifies more with Alain Delon's companion than with his lady-in-waiting, denies any manipulation.

Following an interview with the 60-year-old woman published in the columns of the Parisian where she denounces a frame-up, Anthony Delon decided to testify bringing his version of the facts on the set of "C l'hebdo" against Aurélie Casse on France 5. And his response was not long in coming. "I think she's inventing a life for herself," he says without batting an eyelid.
"It was a detonator"
After a debate on the substance of the interview and the relevance of the remarks made by Hiromi Rollin, Anthony Delon finally reveals that his father would have been obliged to designate to the press the latter as his companion. "The reason why my father said in Paris Match 'she's my girlfriend', the prosecutor has the answer. It's recorded," he explains.
"My father's stroke and the fact that she didn't call anyone, that was the trigger. It was a detonator," says the 59-year-old comedian. And if the case broke at the beginning of the summer, it had been several years since Alain Delon's eldest son recorded with the police all the events. "These shipments to the police were made over almost two years." But public complaint was not, at that time, a possibility.
"If today we find ourselves in this situation, it is because he called us for help. [...] Then there was a big moral problem for me. It's my father but it's also Alain Delon. From the moment we file a complaint, everyone will know, it's going to be a terrible mess," he explains, putting forward the argument of jeopardizing his dignity and image. On the other hand, the 87-year-old man did not blame them, "because at the time we did it we could not do otherwise".
