“Everything is fake”, accused of incest by his daughter Coline, Richard Berry speaks for the first time

After nearly two years of silence, the actor is returning to the complaint that his daughter Coline filed against him for sexual abuse when she was a child and dismissed in August, for prescription treatment.

Almost two years after the rape charges filed by his daughter, Coline, Richard Berry is breaking his silence. In it Sunday newspaperthe actor returns for the first time to this case, closed without further action last August for prescription, and believes that today he can “confirm that everything is false.”

On January 25, 2021, the actor’s daughter, Coline Berry-Rojtman, filed a complaint against her father. In an article published by The worldshe accuses him of incest, sexual violence and corruption of a minor when she was a child.

The young woman specifies that she was forced, when she was 6 and 10 years old (between 1982 and 1986), to participate in sexual games between her father and his partner at the time, the American singer Jeane Manson. She is suing for defamation.

“I don’t understand why she did it”

If Richard Berry spoke at that time to deny his daughter’s words, he had never since spoken again in public. In it JDDhe again condemns these “despicable” accusations and Coline Berry-Rojtman’s “lies”.

“There is nothing more painful than being accused of a crime you did not commit, let alone by your daughter,” he said in JDD.

He adds: “Nothing happened, she says. I never kissed her on the mouth with my tongue, nor my other two daughters, it’s disgusting. I didn’t walk around naked. […] Perhaps these are invented or evoked memories that she has come to believe.”

“Fierce Jealousy”

In an attempt to explain Coline Berry-Rojtman’s motives for making these allegations, Richard Berry hypothesizes: “There is a kind of jealousy, sometimes violent, towards my other daughter, Josephine. And these accusations arose in 2014 when I announced the birth of my third child with my wife Pascale.”

“Coline was also pregnant. I’m looking for explanatory elements in these accompaniments, but deep down I don’t understand why she did this”, he continues.

He also assures that his daughter had revealed to him at the age of 27 that she had been raped at the age of 14 by her riding instructor. “Maybe everything is mixed up?” asks the actor.

“I will remain his father”

On December 8, Coline Berry-Rojtman was found guilty of defamation following a complaint filed by Jeane Manson. Richard Berry’s daughter has been ordered to pay a fine of 2,000 euros and 20,000 euros in compensation to her father’s former partner.

If the 72-year-old actor supported his ex-wife in her lawsuits against her daughter, he explains that he did not want to go so far as to file a complaint against Coline Berry. “Despite these false accusations and despite the pain, I remain his father,” he says.

Richard Berry now considers himself “cleared” since Coline Berry’s complaint was dismissed for a prescription in August 2022. However, he states that he would have preferred there to be no prescription. “I would have liked an incriminating and apologetic investigation by a judge,” he concludes.
