The loss of a loved one is always a painful moment to pass. For these stars it was all the more difficult: it must be said that losing a child is not in the natural order of things, and that we would tend to predict the opposite. Last year, Ludovic Chancel, the son of Sheila and Ringo ended his life, at 42 years old. Several celebrities have experienced the suicide of their child, (Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, Mia Farrow) as well as their overdoses (Dr Dre, Anna Nicole Smith).
For some, fate persists: Mia Farrow has not lost one, or two children, but three. In 2000, Tam succumbed to a heart attack. In 2008, his daughter Lark Song died after a long illness, then in 2016, Thadeeus took his own life. She is not alone in suffering the death of several of her children: the former star of the JT, Patrick Poivre d’Arvor loses his first daughter Tiphaine as a result of sudden infant death syndrome. His second daughter Garance who never saw the light of day, her mother having had a car accident. Then finally his youngest daughter Solenn, suffering from anorexia nervosa, committed suicide at the age of 19.
Some have not even had the chance to live a few years with their child: Ingrid Chauvin, the main actress of Tomorrow Belongs To Us lost her daughter, Jade in 2014. Aged only 5 months, she succumbed to a heart defect. Prince, the famous singer also lost his child a few days after his birth, following respiratory problems. Two years later, he separated from the child’s mother, Mayte Garcia.
Others have lost their children in macabre conditions, which does not help with the pain felt: we remember in particular Jean-Louis Trintignant: the French actor lost two children: Pauline, born in 1969, n’ lived only a few months, then his daughter Marie Trintignant died under the blows of her companion, Bertrand Cantat in 2003. This case will be one of the most publicized of the beginning of the century.
Roland Giraud’s daughter is also murdered at 36. In 2004, his body was found in a well next to that of his companion Katia Herbier, 32 years old. The investigation concludes that it is a murder. Jean Pierre Treiber, former forester is accused after several prosecution evidence. His trial will never take place because he will commit suicide in his cell, in Fleury-Mérogis.
