[Mis à jour le 07 juillet 2022 à 10h02] “I can not stand it anymore”. It is with these words that Judith Chemla revealed on Instagram the injuries suffered under the blows of her ex-companion, Yohan Manca, this Sunday, July 3, 2022. The actress, nominated several times for the César, revealed on the social network her swollen face and accuses the father of her daughter of having hit her in July 2021. This Wednesday, July 6, the actress currently showing Tastes and Colors returned at greater length to what she suffered in the intimacy of his couple.
Judith Chemla claims that the domestic violence began when she was pregnant. Five years later, on July 6, 2021, she filed a complaint against her former companion, the director of My Brothers and Me, which was presented at the Cannes Film Festival in the Un certain regard category. The director is initially placed in police custody, before being released under judicial supervision. An altercation allegedly took place on July 3, 2021, near the Rond-Point theater in Paris. She accuses her ex of throwing a phone in her face after he found out she had feelings for another man (“nothing happened physically,” she says).
“At that point, the police said to me: ‘Madam, you have to file a complaint, because afterwards, it’s feminicide.’ At the time, she couldn’t bring herself to “file a complaint against the father of [sa] daughter. I don’t have the inner click, you know? You have to click, you have to want it.” Later, she discovers that her companion would have had a relationship for two years with another woman, whose life he would have threatened to destroy if she ever revealed the truth about their affair. ” And there, I tell myself that he cannot harm this woman, that she is not my enemy”, affirms the actress with Léa Salamé.
After filing a complaint for the first time on July 6, 2021, Judith Chemla claims to be the victim of four months of “intense” harassment. She complains again. His ex-companion was subsequently sentenced on May 12, 2022 to eight months in prison, suspended. But the situation would not have changed, according to the actress, who requires “immediate awareness:” Despite a suspended sentence of eight months in prison, he makes threats, he continues to think that he is a victim. . That seeing his daughter every other weekend, having lunch with her every Tuesday noon, seeing her half the holidays, that’s not enough. He does not question himself.” According to her, she never wanted to harm the father of her daughter. “I wanted to give him a chance as a father, as a man, as an artist. He’s screwed up one chance after another because he feels he’s above the law.”
