Johnny Hallyday, for his part, had stated:

MEET JALIL LESPERT THROUGH JOHNNY
Two years after the Taulier’s disappearance, Laeticia had finally found a smile and believed in love thanks to Pascal Balland. However, due to the distance and certain personal decisions and behaviors of the restaurateur, their romance will only last a few months.
But love will knock on Joy and Jade’s mother’s door again in the summer of 2020. And now it’s over a year ago that Laeticia Hallyday and Jalil Lespert have experienced unparalleled love. She was interviewed by the Gala last December and confided in:
“I allow myself to love another man without feeling guilty, I finally allow myself to be happy.”
And say it the purpose of their meeting during this famous summer day was to discuss the director’s desire to make a biopic about Johnny.
FEEL JOHNNY’S PRESENCE IN THE RELATIONSHIP WITH NEW MAN
Johnny’s presence in the memory and heart of Laeticia remains indelible. Although she had opened her heart to start a new story, she had a hard time learning to love.
She had especially talked about an impression of infidelity towards the father of her children, but also about not being able to love again. He was, after all, her first love. She had such intense feelings for him that she was sometimes even afraid of them.
Johnny was always present. She always had it in her skin, and the man she was supposed to be in a relationship with had to accept The presence of the Taulis in their lives. A condition that Pascal Balland apparently did not meet.
“I manage to love differently, but Johnny is still there … It’s brave for the man, for a man in my life today. Johnny’s place is still very present. It’s not easy, we are often a couple of three”,
she confided in Audrey Crespo-Mara in the program “Seven to eight,” and in passing acknowledged Pascal’s efforts under their circumstances.
Fortunately for her, Jalil seems to accept that his girlfriend feels the need to honor the father of her children in her own way. After all, everyone has their own way of mourning. The director would give her all the necessary love and time she needs.
“I have been in a relationship for over a year with a wonderful, benevolent man who listens to my children. He is so benevolent that he accepts my grief, just like Johnny’s presence in my life”,
There are still wonderful memories of Johnny and Laeticia’s love story and two dazzling young girls filled with love and kindness like their father. But perhaps thanks to this story that she is currently living with Jalil, they will also be able to create new memories that are just as beautiful.
