The reply of his son Anthony

Anthony Delon’s words also arrived shortly after. Speaking on the CNews broadcaster, the French actor’s son said he “wanted to put out a fire”, ensuring that “there is no question of money, of inheritance, as the succession has already been defined.” As confirmed by the Delon family’s lawyers, 50% of the inheritance will go to Anouchka and 25% to the other two children. “I don’t want our family be associated with those of Johnny Hallyday or Bettencourt. Today the rift is not about money problems at all”, underlined Anthony Delon again. At stake, according to his eldest son and his brother Alain-Fabien, is the father’s future and respect for his will regarding the time he has left to live.
