French justice has just decided. The request for recognition of paternity initiated by Ari Boulogne towards Alain Delon has just been rejected on appeal by the court of Orleans and returned to Switzerland.
Is Ari Boulogne the son of Alain Delon? The photographer has been asking for paternity recognition for years. The son of singer Nico, who is now 58 years old, has indeed appealed to justice on numerous occasions so that finally, an official response is provided. If his first request for recognition of paternity was rejected in 2001, Ari Boulogne did not hesitate to appeal to the court of Orleans (Center-Val de Loire). And for good reason, Alain Delon has a residence in the region.
Only here, in its decision of August 27, 2020, the judicial court of Orleans declared “the French jurisdiction territorially incompetent”. The Orléans Court of Appeal confirmed this information in a judgment consulted on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 by AFP and relayed by Le Figaro. “Mr. Alain Delon reports proof that his domicile is in Switzerland” where he has resided since 1984. He has a “Swiss passport”, “pays his taxes on Swiss territory”, “votes in Switzerland” or “is treated in Switzerland “, details the judgment. As a result, the request for recognition of paternity addressed to Alain Delon by Ari Boulogne cannot be judged in France.
According to comments relayed by Le Figaro, Me Ayela, Alain Delon’s lawyer “welcomes” the “wise decision rendered by the Orléans Court of Appeal”. “It is now a closed case in France,” he said. For his part, Alain Delon has never recognized the paternity of Ari Boulogne, son of the German singer Nico with whom he had a brief affair in the 1960s. As a child, Ari Boulogne was however raised by the mother of ‘Alain Delon, Edith Boulogne, whose name he bears and who considers him to be his grandson.
In 1977, he was adopted by Paul Boulogne, husband of Alain Delon’s mother, from whom he thus legally received the family name. In 1986, Ari Boulogne spent short moments alongside Alain Delon, the latter still being convinced that he was not the boy’s father. “Alain Delon, one hand on the steering wheel, the other patting me on the shoulder, gives me this speech: ‘You’re my friend, you, you’re my friend. But I’m going to tell you something, you don’t’ do not have my eyes, you do not have my hair. You are not my son, you will never be my son. I only slept with your mother once ‘”, had told Ari Boulogne in Liberation . A family affair far from over.
