With Cerise, Renaud rediscovered the taste for love. Although they have known each other for more than thirty years, the singer and the seamstress actually met on a television set in 2011. But they had to wait for many years. It was only the day after his 70th birthday, on May 12, 2022, that the interpreter of winner Mistral received a request that changed his life. “She made me a bandana shirt. It touched me, we talked, I invited her to have coffee at home in Paris, then to Provence, then on vacation to Cap Ferret”he confided to Parisian on April 30, 2023. And since then, the lovers have not left each other. A new man freed from his addictions, Renaud feels more “free as ever”as he stated to RTL on Friday December 1, 2023. Free yes, but “chained by love” since he crossed paths with Cerise. Madly in love “for 17 months” of the one who is actually called Christine, the 71-year-old singer seems proud that his partner “attend everyone [s]”concerts”. Her nickname, inherited from the fact that she “wears cherry earrings all the time”is even found on the singer’s sneakers.
Renaud is “filled with love”
Because Cerise is with him all the time, in life as well as on stage where he returns after having spent dark years, marked by his alcoholism and several family tragedies. With his companion, Renaud repairs his heart which has been broken several times “abyss” by his divorces : with Dominique Quilichini, the mother of his daughter Lola, in 1999, then with Romane Serda, the mother of his son Malone, in 2011. Today, the singer’s heart is “filled with love” thanks to Cerise and their peaceful daily life in a small village in Brittany. Since he met his partner, Renaud stopped alcohol and cigarettes and took up sport, thanks to a coach who gave him lessons in “gym” with some “dumbbells”. A new lifestyle that he follows after experiencing several major health problems, and to enjoy his partner as long as possible. Because as Renaud said on the airwaves of RTL, to be in love “it changes life” but “it helps” Also “to bear the inevitable, knowing that we are going to die one day…”
