On December 5, 2017, the music world was struck by the death of one of its greatest artists: Johnny Hallyday. Jean-Philippe Smet, his real name, died of lung cancer at his home in Marnes-la-Coquette, in the Hauts-de-Seine. In accordance with his wishes, the artist was then buried in the cemetery of the church of Lorient, in Saint-Barthélemy, a place dear to his heart. On a trip to the pearl of the Caribbean, Laeticia Hallyday went, this Saturday, July 23, to the grave of her late husband. An unmissable meeting for the mother of Jade and Joy that she never fails to share with her community.
“Each brings his little offering”
Very active on social networks, the one who found love with Jalil Lespert, then took advantage of this opportunity to reveal, once again, the beauty of the place. Indeed, the burial of Johnny Hallyday is magnificent. Between the flowers, photos and other offerings, this is one of the most decorated tombs. And for good reason… Every day, since the rocker’s funeral, Jean-Pierre Millot, friend of the Hallyday couple, has the heavy task of taking care of the premises. Recently interviewed by Le Figaro, the latter confided: “ Today, there are fewer fans from mainland France because of the virus, but normally there can be up to 120 a day. Everyone brings their little offering, an engraved pebble, a plaque… If you leave everything behind, nothing is legible. You have to organize all this so that the fans see a tomb maintained as on the first day. It’s me and no one else who takes care of it. Johnny wanted it that way. It had been a topic of discussion between us for years. “For him, it’s a real” honor to take care of the artist’s grave. A beautiful proof of friendship.
