Death of Jean-Paul Belmondo: the women in the life of the “Magnifique”

Breathless, the “French lover” passed away on September 6 at the age of 88. A great seducer in front of the eternal, Jean-Paul Belmondo has lived beautiful stories with the most beautiful women in the world, in the cinema as in life. One playboy at a time “sexy, crazy and cool“, as the American magazine described it in 1966 Life. Return on the idylls which marked the love course of “Magnifique”.

The dancer Elodie Constantin is the first to have captured the heart of the charismatic actor. In 1952, Bébel, then unknown to the general public, fell madly in love with this girl whom he saw dancing in a cellar in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. They married in 1959. From this idyll were born three children, Patricia, Florence and Paul. After seven years of living together, their love story is shattered.

In 1965, during the filming of Tribulations of a Chinese in China, Jean-Paul Belmondo succumbs to the charms of the one who, since James Bond 007 vs. Dr. No (1963), remains the most sensational “James Bond girl” in history. The actor will divorce Élodie Constantin the following year. Driven by Ursula Andress, Jean-Paul Belmondo considered at the time to try the adventure of American cinema. The couple moved to Hollywood but after six months, the “ace of aces” was homesick and decided to return. In 1972, after six happy years, Ursula Andress and Jean-Paul Belmondo separated.

Love at first sight with “Natty”

A year earlier, the actor met the Brazilian Carlos Sotto Mayer. A duo in life as in the cinema since she will be his partner in Le Marginal (1983), Happy Easter (1984) and The solitary (1987).

In 1989, aged 56, Bébel gave his heart again. Love at first sight occurs on the stands of Roland-Garros. The lucky winner is called Nathalie Tardivel. She is 24 years old. He married her in 2002, a year after his stroke, and a few months later, on August 13, 2003, the couple gave birth to a baby girl, Stella. But in 2008, Jean-Paul Belmondo announced, via a press release to Agence France Presse, that he was divorcing “Natty” after twenty years together.

Her sulphurous relationship with Barbara Gandolfi

A few months later, Bebel met on the terrace of a restaurant in Antibes a certain Barbara Gandolfi, ex-model and Belgian businesswoman, 42 years younger. Their love story will last four years. But she is accused of being interested only in the portfolio of Jean-Paul Belmondo. “It could be my choice and my right to live with a dishonest woman, it would only concern me and only concern my responsibility“, declared in 2010 Jean-Paul Belmondo in an interview with Paris Match.

Since 2018, the French actor shared his life with the actress Valérie Steffen, 57 years old.
