Then in January, Charlotte was photographed leaving Elmaleh’s apartment. The scandal? Elmaleh is 41 years old, twice Charlotte’s age, and he has a son, Noah, from a previous relationship with actress Anne Brochet. His previous companions have included the ballerina Aurélie Dupont and journalist Marie Drucker.
People are worried that Charlotte’s relationship with an older man could end in scandal like her mother’s woeful marriage to older playboy Phillipe Junot. Princess Caroline was a blushing bride at 21, and her new husband was 38. Caroline and Junot divorced only two years after their nuptials at Saint Nicholas Cathedral in Monaco.
I get the feeling, however, that the older man this time may be real happiness. Gad Elmaleh looks like he is much more cheerful and good-natured, whereas Alex Dellal looked dour and mean.
Who knows how this will play out? It’s just nice to see Charlotte smile.
