Richard Berry accused of incest by his daughter Coline: case dismissed, first reactions
The Richard / Coline Berry case reappears again in the media whirlwind: the investigation targeting the actor, screenwriter and director for incest has been dismissed for prescription, according to information from BFMTV confirmed by the Paris prosecutor’s office. The daughter of the French star, born of the artist’s relationship with actress Catherine Hiegel, had filed a complaint in 2021, accusing her father in particular of “rape and sexual assault on a 15-year-old minor by ascendant”. Richard Berry has always denied the accusations.
It was on January 25, 2021 that Coline Berry-Rojtman filed a complaint against her father, accusing him of “rape and sexual assault on a 15-year-old minor by ascendant”. She had also accused Jeane Manson, at the time of the facts companion of Richard Berry, of “corruption of a minor”. This is an article from World who had set fire to the powder, in which the 46-year-old woman claimed to have been the victim of sexual abuse by her father when she was a child and that he was in a relationship with Jeane Manson, forced to participate in a sexual play – “the playing of the orchestra” – under the duress of her father when she was aged 6 to 10, between 1982 and 1986.
“Coline Berry denounced these facts knowing full well that they were prescribed, for there to be an investigationreacted to AFP his lawyer, Me Patrick Klugman. This takes note that the facts are prescribed. We therefore understand that the facts are characterized, and that is what we expected”, he added. “No one will be able to say that Coline Berry is a liar anymore.” Arguments contradicted by master Hervé Témine in charge of the defense of Richard Berry with master Sophie Obadia: “Contrary to what may have been erroneously indicated, there is no reason to say that the facts are established. The prosecution did not say it and moreover did not have to say it.“
Since the year 2021, father and daughter were therefore at war, each remaining on his own words while in parallel, a media unpacking occurred, forcing the members of their family to take a stand, like Marilou Berry, niece of the actor and daughter of Josiane Balasko who has always supported her first cousin. Jeanne Manson had decided to retaliate by filing a defamation complaint. The American singer who made a career in France won her case on April 14: Coline Berry was sentenced to pay a fine of 2000 euros for remarks made on BFMTV and in the newspaper article The world. But also to pay for the damage suffered no less than 20,000 euros for the benefit of Jeane Manson. An appeal trial is due to take place on November 9, said BFMTV.
It was on June 14, 2022 that Richard Berry, married to Pascale Louange who did not hide his anger and father of 3 daughters, was heard in free hearing in Paris on June 14. Despite the presumption of innocence, the case had a significant impact on his career and his private life, while his daughter also suffered the wrath of the public courts.
