Invited on September 25 in Quelle époque on France 2, the model spoke in front of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, shaken by the Adrien Quatennens affair. “Us, when we are victims, myself, I minimized what was happening to us. I trivialized it, I was in this thing of telling myself ‘it’s not too serious’. But in fact , if it was. I think that you, as a statesman, you really have this responsibility to be careful, quite simply”, reminding the leader of insubordinate France “that there is no no little slaps”.
