According to Le Parisien, Patrick Antonelli will no longer be Amel Bent's companion after spending two months in Nanterre detention center.
After a March sentence by the city's court, the 45-year old man was placed in prison in Hauts-de–Seine on May 3. After being sentenced in March, the city's judicial court gave permission for him to remain with the 37 year-old singer and coach in "The Voice" until he was released. He then had to go to prison to sleep.
Antonelli was convicted in the first instance of illegally exercising the profession of security guard. He replaced a bodyguard from his companion with a short notice. Antonelli had also been convicted for fraud during the judgement. Antonelli presented an invoice to Antonelli without authorization and also falsified his turnover. The man had benefited from it without being entitled to it "whatever the price", to compensate for the drop in activity during Covid-19.
The forties were sentenced to a 15-month sentence in prison, which included the revocation of two suspended sentences of 3 and 6 months. They then spent 2 months behind bars until the court changed its decision, the Versailles Court of Appeal, condemning Friday to a sentence that allowed him to be released.
