Johnny Hallyday Estate Fight: Johnny was married to his last wife Laeticia from 1996 to his death. After he died Laeticia produced a will that was filed in Los Angeles, where the couple reportedly considered their primary residence. The held estates in Los Angeles and Gstaad, Switzerland to avoid France’s unusually high taxes. Another potential reason Laeticia had Johnny file a will in Los Angeles is that in France you are not allowed to cut children out of your will. The American will that Laeticia produced upon Johnny’s death cut his adult children out of the will entirely. His children filed a lawsuit that used Johnny and Laeticia’s instagram posts to show that they spent only a minimal amount of time in the United States and at one point even spent 8 months straight in France. The goal was to show that they were still essentially French residents and therefore a previous will that did not cut off the children should either supersede or a new division of assets including the children should be forged. Amazingly an initial court agreed with the children, though Laeticia vowed to appeal.
