“We have given up on the legacy of his father,” attorney Pierre-Jean Duvier told AFP. “We are withdrawing from any judicial process.” The statement came to confirm a story published by the newspaper “Lovegaro.”
“David gets nothing, neither in terms of artistic legacy nor in financial terms, nor asks for anything. He does not get symbolic purposes. From now on, the page is turned, and David looks forward to the return of serenity,” Duvier explained.
Leticia Halliday, Johnny’s widow, revealed in an interview to “Barry Match” magazine in mid-July that the legacy of the late singer is “an artistic legacy, a little money and a lot of debt.”
Letizia’s lawyer announced on July 3 that “a final agreement has been reached between the widow and daughter Laura Smit, who was the first to turn to the court to challenge the will freed by the late star in the United States.”
This undisclosed agreement put an end to a two-year court dispute over Johnny Halliday’s legacy.
