Enrico Macias: his tender confidences about his wife, dead in his arms: Current Woman The MAG

Enrico Macias has not been the same man since the death of his wife Suzy. On January 24, 2021, Jocya and Jean-Claude's dad was guest of Audrey Crespo-Mara on the show Seven to eight. The 82-year-old singer took the opportunity to return to the worst drama of his life. It has been more than ten years since Enrico Macias learned to live without the love of his life. Yet he still does not recover. It all happened on December 23, 2008, a day that Enrico Macias will remember for a long time to come. That day, Suzy Leyris passed away after a long cardiac pathology, at the age of 68. If the singer with the singular voice agreed to participate in Portrait of the week, by Audrey Crespo-Mara, he chose to confide in the last moments of his wife, which he attended, helpless. For good reason, more than a decade after Suzy's death, Enrico Macias still suffers from her absence. The interpretation of the title Children of all countries still remembers that sad moment when he was informed that his companion "was gone". "I went quickly to the bedroom, I took her in my arms and there she had another sigh", he remembers, before specifying, not without emotion: "That's why I say she left in my arms …" In the end, he was glad he got to say goodbye to her one last time. "I'm sure she felt … [his presence and his love, editor's note] I am on…"he hammers.

"Every night when I come home, I talk to him"

Even though his wife died many years ago, Enrico Macias decided to "keep your room intact", as if she was always by his side. "Her perfume, toothpaste, toothbrush, everything", he specifies, facing the camera. A way of "help him" to digest the loss of the love of his life. Even today, the father of the family has a daily thought for the one he married in 1962 and who, in a way, continues to live through it. One way for the 82-year-old singer to overcome grief: "Every night when I come home, I talk to him. I tell him what I did that day. And I talk to him … I can hear him. It’s a feeling I have. And then I often dream of her. She speaks to me in dreams. Maybe because it's my will."Heartbreaking confidences.
