A Miss facing justice. According to our colleagues from Parisian, Sonia Rolland would have been indicted, this Monday, May 30, for “concealment of embezzlement of public funds, corruption and abuse of corporate assets”. Echoing the affair of the ill-gotten gains of the late Gabonese President Omar Bongo, the former Miss France would have received in 2003, a luxurious apartment located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, acquired illegally.

As with this apartment, other real estate acquired by African leaders was allegedly purchased through an opaque, corporate-linked embezzlement scheme. The former protege of Geneviève de Fontenay would still own this property delivered in 2006, now subject to seizure, estimated at more than 640,000 euros according to the daily. In January 2021, she was already heard on this case by the investigators as Liberation had revealed in March at the same time.

Faced with the Central Office for the Suppression of Serious Financial Crime (OCRGDF), the Franco-Rwandan model who had met the wife of the former president in 2001 was unaware of this scheme. “I did not know the mode of financing and I was not interested in it, I had heard of the Elf affair, but I had not made the connection, and I did not know that the Bongo family had acquired so many goods in France”, assures the one who pleads good faith, relayed in Le Parisien.

According to his lawyer, Me Charles Morel, his 22-year-old client – at the time of the facts – “admits having been naive, but disputes any infringement”, before adding. “At no time was she aware of the origin of the funds, nor of the financial arrangement, she trusted the notary completely. Sonia Rolland is serene and has no doubt that she will be exonerated at the end of instruction”. Filming for the next season of Criminal Tropics in Martinique, the actress did not react to this case publicly, nor on her social networks.

Side heart, Sonia Rolland has shared the life of several famous men. Among her love stories, the former beauty queen lived in 2006, a relationship with Christophe Rocancourt, better known as “the swindler of the stars”. From their relationship was born their daughter Tess in January 2007, before the couple separated the following year.

During a photo session, Sonia Rolland meets director Jalil Lespert. A love at first sight between the lovebirds which saw the birth of the fruit of their love: the birth of their daughter Kahina in November 2010. But, after eight years of relationship, the model and the filmmaker separated. If the latter has since rebuilt his life with Laeticia Hallyday, the famous actress has also found love, preferring to keep the identity of his companion secret.

“In 2019, I met someone who does not work at all in the same professional environment. He is a gentle, sensitive and very funny man, at the same time adorable, benevolent and very loving. He supports me in my emancipation as a woman and mother. He is the type to burst the abscess as soon as there is a problem. I have nothing to govern in his life and on the contrary, he facilitates mine. I am very happy. I really believe in the proverb: Let’s live happy, live hidden”, assured the sublime actress in the columns of Gala in March 2021.

Discreet about her private life, Sonia Rolland has always taken care to protect her two daughters Tess and Kahina from social networks. This does not prevent them from sharing moments of complicity between girls through its numerous publications. Between her career and her life as a mother, the actress has found a certain balance.

“The girls join me during their holidays. The rest of the time it’s a bit complicated because they are 7,000 kilometers away and want to stay with their friends. But I learned to delegate, I have a great nanny that I consider family”, explains the star of Criminal Tropics to our colleagues from Gala, supported by his children who notably found him on the set of season 3 last year in Martinique.
