Laeticia Hallyday does not intend to let it happen against Eric Zemmour: I asked my lawyer to initiate proceedings

Eric Zemmour's presidential campaign launch video is definitely causing a stir.
According to Laeticia Hallyday, Eric Zemmour has hijacked the image of Johnny Hallyday for his clip for the benefit of his propaganda, as she said in our confreres of RTL France.
I was saddened, it is not possible to use the image of an artist, the image of Johnny for political purposes in an election campaign, someone who is no longer there, it is a propaganda that would not have pleased Johnny, he would not have liked it, said Laeticia Hallyday to our confreres. I have asked my lawyer to initiate proceedings. I am shocked and I think I'm not the only one, it was necessary to denounce it, respect the right to image, and denounce this abuse.
In his clip, the new candidate marked to the extreme right evokes, with photos, the country of Gabin and Delon, Brigitte Bardot and Belmondo, Johnny and Aznavour, Brassens and Barbara. An archive image of Johnny appears in black and white.
