His former producer “did not do the accounts”

Ah well no, because I have not been paid“, she dropped on the set. “You know, I started out, I was 16, I was a kid. 16 in the 60s is like 12 today for you. I did my first fifteen years, it’s the time when I sold a lot of records, with someone who didn’t do the accounts”, continued the idol of the yéyé generation. Before : “It’s the problem of money of course, but it is the problem of the betrayal of a child. Because I was a kid. I followed a gentleman who made me sing, I was so happy to realize a little girl’s dream. Me, the accounts, it was not my life. I don’t care about accounts!“.”It doesn’t matter“, summarized the singer, who does not wish “not live in resentment.
The producer in question is none other than Claude Carrère, against whom she had won a lawsuit at the industrial tribunal of Bobigny, in 1996. The company had to pay 4.3 million francs to Sheila. In 2021, in the columns of S, The Magazine of Sophie Davant, the singer had revealed the way in which this man had betrayed her and in whom she nevertheless had complete confidence.
Claude was like a big brother to me. I could never have imagined being betrayed by him. How this man who, in one month, had allowed the little florist that I was to become a yéyé singer could he wish me harm?“, she asked herself. But like her intervention at Clique, Sheila had also shown herself to be resilient, even saying that she had her share of responsibility in this whole story.
