This Monday, Sophie Tapie took to her Instagram account to wish a happy birthday to her new companion, rugby player Baptiste Germain. The young woman took the opportunity to respond to criticism of her age difference with the sportsman.
She doesn’t care about detractors! Sophie Tapie, 34, has been in a relationship for a few months with Baptiste Germain, a 22-year-old rugby player playing as a scrum-half at Stade Toulousain. An idyll which probably gives a smile to the daughter of Bernard Tapie, after her divorce from Jean-Mathieu Marinetti last May. Yes, but now, if the two lovebirds are on a small cloud, it seems that their age difference – namely 12 years – is not to the taste of all Internet users, many of whom criticize the couple on this subject. This Monday, November 21, on the occasion of Baptiste Germain’s birthday, Sophie Tapie could not help but mention this controversial subject for some, when she made a pretty statement to her dear and tender. “Age is just a number, and love can’t count. I like you“, she wrote in the caption of a photo in which she appears all smiles alongside her lover and her dog Zazou. And since their love story is not unanimous, the young woman added, in the form of a hashtag: “The two of us against the rest of the world“. A way of remembering that his couple is stronger than the critics!
Sophie Tapie: she moved in with her new companion
And indeed, it looks like it’s serious between Sophie Tapie and Baptiste Germain, who moved in together in Biarritz last August, a month after the young woman formalized her relationship with the sportsman on Instagram. Two months earlier, Sophie Tapie announced her divorce from Jean-Mathieu Marinetti, after 5 years of love. “5 years of love that will be transformed by mutual agreement, and I hope 100 years of friendship. The year has not been easy for anyone. It’s a page that turns to write new ones, certainly different, but we know it, with still a lot of laughter and love, of another kind. Thank you all for respecting our choice. Life is beautiful and should go on like this“, had written the daughter of Bernard Tapie on Instagram.
