Once One of the Most Handsome Men, This Hollywood Legend, 88, Lives Reclusively after a Stroke amid His Kids’ Bitter Feud

Once celebrated as one of the world’s most handsome men, 88-year-old Alain Delon now leads a reclusive life following a stroke in 2019. His seclusion is overshadowed by a bitter feud among his three children, who are embroiled in disputes over his assets and well-being. Delon, who resides in his expansive estate, La Brûlerie, southeast of Paris, expressed a desire to be buried there, near a chapel and the cemetery he built for his beloved dogs.

Delon’s life took a dramatic turn after receiving an honorary Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, just weeks before his stroke. Despite his health challenges, Delon’s legacy as a cinematic icon remains undisputed, with his family frequently in the headlines due to their public disagreements. His lawyer, Christophe Ayela, has urged peace, emphasizing the need for calm amidst the ongoing family tension.

Delon’s relationship with his children is complex, marked by his admission of favoring his daughter, Anouchka, which has potentially fueled the rivalry with his sons, Anthony and Alain-Fabien, both of whom are also actors. Recently, his children united to place him under a reinforced curatorship to ensure his affairs are managed responsibly, highlighting their ongoing concern for his welfare.

The family’s saga continues to unfold, capturing public attention, as they navigate the challenges of maintaining both Delon’s legacy and their personal relationships
