A Shaggy Dog
A Shaggy Dog Story For Summer Reading
There are many reasons for terminating the employment of a carer…medication issues, bad time keeping to name just two, but one recently in the picture was a new development. Mistreating the client’s dog.
This arose very recently in France and concerns one of the dogs of retired film idol and millionaire Alain Delon.
Alain Delon, 87, appeared in more than 90 films in Europe and the USA, has for over 50 years, lives in a chateau estate in Douchy-Montcorbon, a few hours’ drive south of Paris.
Hiromi Rollin, a Japanese former make-up artist two decades his junior, started out as Delon’s carer, but has developed into something more – effectively taking control, it is alleged by Delon’s three children.
Last week Rollin was ejected from the property after Delon’s children filed legal complaints against her which included: moral harassment and misappropriation of correspondence.
One of the allegations against Rollin is “cruelty to animals” — apparently Delon’s beloved Belgian shepherd, Loubo, one of 50 or so dogs he is thought to keep behind the high walls of the 30-acre estate.
One of the children posted a poignant picture of the animal on her Instagram account.
Hiromi Rollin’s lawyer has said that she “contests all the facts alleged against her”. She is also planning to file a complaint against members of the Delon family and the actor’s bodyguards over the “aggravated deliberate violence” she claims she suffered during her ejection from the property.
Delon, who suffered a stroke some years ago, is now re-united with his beloved Loubo who is once again his loyal companion.
