In this documentary, many personalities took the floor to remember the producer and TV host of cult shows like It’s my choice, It is discussed and It’s a story. If Sophie Davant testified, explaining how she had replaced Jean-Luc Delarue on France 2the ex-girlfriend of the TV host, Elsa Guyon, revealed a terrible event that occurred in the life of the producer: his suicide attempt.
Elsa Guyon has indeed explained that one day, after having presented a program, Jean-Luc Delarue, alcoholic, took the wheel. She who had joined him in the car out of fear “to let him go on his own and kill himself” thus saw the host burst into tears before he launched to him: “We will be better up there”. Jean-Luc Delarue then pressed on the accelerator until the accident occurred. “We take a lamppost and there, we do three barrels, we find ourselves on the roof. Jean-Luc has half of his face open, he has no hair, the eye is completely open” remembered the ex-companion of the facilitator, the emotion in the voice.
At that time, Jean-Luc Delarue, plagued by old demons, consumed an excessive amount of alcohol. “After a show, there is a debriefing for four to five hours in his dressing room. And when it’s really bad, there’s a lot of vodka.” confided Elsa Guyon. The TV host also suffered from a cocaine addiction, which led to his arrest by the police in 2010.
