Gérald Darmanin accused of rape: his ex-wife would testify …

Accused of rape since 2017 by Sophie Patterson-Spatz, the prosecution in Paris requested a dismissal in favor of Gérald Darmanin on January 12, 2022. In the book Gérald Darmanin, the black baron of the presidentavailable in bookstores on March 31, 2022, journalists Laurent Valdiguié and François Vignolle revealed that his ex-wife Morgane Jumez wanted to testify in the case.

Gérald Darmanin believed he had been given a respite since the Paris prosecution declared a dismissal in his favor on January 12, 2022 for the rape case that opposed him Sophie Patterson-Spatz. But the interior minister risks getting back on track in this matter. The book with the title Gérald Darmanin, the black baron of the presidentwritten by journalists Laurent Valdiguié and François Vignolle, will be published in bookstores this Thursday, March 31, 2022. The book is a true biographical study, which traces the entire 39-year-old politician’s career, and which leaves out nothing of the controversy it has created .

In their book, the two journalists returned to the investigation surrounding the rape charge, which has been leveled against Gérald Darmanin since 2017. According to the authors, his ex-wife, Morgane Jumez, would have been the big one forgotten in this affair. She is said to have written a letter in which she proposed to “to go back on certain statements from her ex-husband that she (considered) to be erroneous”. Divorced from the former Minister of Action since 2017, the young woman had indeed sent this request for hearing to the investigating judge, which the rape accused had discovered in March 2021, during his confrontation that had lasted nine hours with his prosecutor Sophie Patterson -Spatz.

Emmanuel Macron’s minister had read his ex-wife’s request “pale and broken face”, according to what you can read in the book. However, the judge never heard Morgane Jumez without considering her testimony “useful” at the stage reached by the proceedings, as it had been informed by an order of the Chamber of Inquiry of the Court of Appeal in Paris in September 2021.

“Those who know him know … I’m part of it” : Morgane Jumez reacted to Gérald Darmanin’s attack on Apolline de Malherbe

The politician’s ex-wife had not stopped at his request for a hearing in 2021. On February 8, 2022, Gérald Darmanin was invited to the set of BFMTV for an interview with Apolline de Malherbe. After a tense exchange with the journalist, the minister told her: “Do not be offended, calm lady. It will be fine.”A remark that had made Nelly Garnier angry. The LR adviser from Paris had indeed published a column against the conservative in Le Monde’s columns to condemn his behavior towards women: “Twice Gérald Darmanin has been accused of using his dominant position as an elected official to obtain sexual services” she had written.

This accusation was not escaped by Morgane Jumez, who took over her Instagram account on February 13, 2022 to jump back into a story, as the book points out: “When Gérald Darmanin’s ex-wife read this text from LR adviser from Paris, Morgane Jumez, responds to her Instagram account: ‘Nelly Garnier signs a brave stand on the conduct of Gérald Darmanin, those who know him know … I’m one of them. “

The relationship between Gérald Darmanin and Morgane Jumez began to deteriorate in 2015

Morgane Jumez was engaged to Gérald Darmanin at the time of the alleged rape in 2009. The former student at Science Po Lille, “funny, tenacious, ingenious”according to her friends, was her fiancé’s first support and closest collaborator who accompanied him to his legislative campaigns. In 2015, the authors report that she did not believe her friends when they told her so “that her husband (was) fickle”.

However, she wondered about the behavior of David Douillet’s former chief of staff when she came across an article condemning sexist behavior in politics and where he was attacked without being named. From there, their relationship deteriorated, leading to their divorce in 2017. The trained lawyer from Science Po Lille has since remarried Rose-Marie Devilliers in August 2020, with whom he has a son. , Maximilian.
