Johnny Hallyday: this man with a full locker who almost bought the house in Marnes-la-Coquette

Johnny Hallyday: this man with a full locker who almost bought the house in Marnes-la-Coquette

It was less than one: the house in Marnes-la-Coquette in which the legend of French rock breathed his last almost became the property of a sulphurous businessman.

It had been several years since Johnny Hallyday’s huge property had been put up for sale by Laeticia. Indeed, caught up by the tax authorities, she had to resolve to sell this house acquired by the owner in 1999 and where he died, on December 5, 2017, in the night. But it was difficult to find a buyer for this immense residence renamed “the Savannah”, even if several offers have been made, including one from a certain Pierre Reynaud.

Pierre Reynaud ready to buy Johnny’s house… before retracting

Now that Johnny Hallyday’s home has been sold, it is undoubtedly with relief that Laeticia realizes that “The Savannah” almost belonged to the businessman and property dealer, Pierre Reynaud. Indeed, the house that had been put up for sale for an amount of 15 million euros was struggling to be sold, after an initial promise of 10.5 million euros, when the man, involved in various legal cases, made an offer of just over 8.45 million euros in addition to agency fees. But this transaction could not be completed. As our colleagues from Paris Match reveal, it was when verifying the origin of the funds that things took a surprising turn. “We carried out the usual checks, respecting the presumption of innocence, related Gilles Gauer, Laeticia Hallyday’s lawyer, but as soon as the request for proof of the lawful origin of the funds was launched, a classic and compulsory approach, we remained without news. Despite a summons issued by a bailiff, it was impossible to get a return from the businessman. It was not until June 29, 2022 that Pierre Reynaud’s notary let it be known without giving explanations that they were “under the obligation to withdraw their offer.”

Although he is still presumed innocent, Pierre Reynaud was, according to our colleagues from Paris Match, several times worried by the justice, in particular indicted twice. The first in 2021, in the witness tampering case involving Ziad Takieddine following an article published in Match, and the second for corruption of a foreign official, since still according to Match, “he is suspected of having contributed funds to release Hannibal Gaddafi, son of the former Libyan dictator, from a Lebanese prison. All in all, the Marnes-la-Coquette house will delight other buyers, less sulphurous, no doubt.
