“I was an object”, Corine Marienneau (ex-Telephone) in a toxic relationship with Louis Bertignac that made her a junkie

Singer and bassist, Corine Marienneau was part of the group “Téléphone” at the time. The beautiful brunette has especially won the heart of Louis Bertignac this season. Back to the emblematic love story of the two musicians.

If “Téléphone” was one of the most popular rock bands of the 80s in France, its ending wasn’t entirely happy. In fact, while the three boy members built another under the name “Les Insus”, Corine, she wasn’t part of it.

CORINE AND LOUIS BERTIGNAC’S RELATIONSHIP DURING THE “TELEPHONE”

It’s a group that marks an entire generation. Composed of Louis Bertignac, Jean-Louis Aubert, Richard Kolinka and Corine Marienneau, “Téléphone”, was founded in 1976 and quickly became a success. Together, these 4 musicians have managed to sell over 6 million albums by assembling their talent.

But if their songs were humed all over France at the time, the group was also distinguished from others by the romantic relationship between the two members. Clearly they were Louis Bertignac and Corine Marieneau.

For the record, the two stars first became friends before acting. However, the couple did not immediately fall in love as Corine said, although she found the singer “adorable” since she saw it, she never thought of pairing up with him.

But something else will happen to fate. Over time, Louis and the bassist began to grow closer and closer, even pursuing a beautiful love story. In an interview, the musician says that at the time, they were always “tied”.

Out of love, Corinne began to rely on toxic things during their relationship. one who admitted to falling into “Louis’s loving submission and a silent heroin addiction” said:

“It’s the heart of our three -way story, Louis, the protagonist and me.”

At the time, because he was at the peak of his career, Louis Bertignac was also interested in many women, who never pleased his ex -girlfriend. A situation he himself describes as “humiliating”.

“I passed for a brave, independent, revolutionary woman, a kind of adventurer (…) In fact, I was something. I’m here for love “,

he revealed about it.

The singer, for her part, confirmed that Corine, who is “an exclusive and owner-lover”, dampens the “enthusiasm of some” women who approach her.

SEPARATION AND DISSOLUTION OF THE GROUP

Despite the warm love they shared, the relationship between Louis Bertignac and Corine Marienneau did not last. However, this separation did not stop the singer from worrying about the bassist, who, at the time, had made several suicide attempts.

As a result, Lola Bertignac’s father asked the other members of the group to keep an eye on her former partner. Especially after this request the singer Corine has already started getting close to another member.

In fact, the musician became Jean-Louis Aubert’s partner, which was a “strange” situation for Louis, according to him.

Then, in 1986, the group shocked more than one by announcing their separation, after tensions arose within the members.

After that, Corine decided to team up with Louis Bertignac to form “The Guests”. The latter is more composed, in addition to two former lovebirds, by Serge Ubrette, guitarist, by Hafid Saidi, the drummer as well as the pianist, Loy Ehrlich.

Although this new group was successful, Corine decided to retire there in 1991, to concentrate a little on her personal projects.

CORINE’S NEW LIFE

Since the release of her former group “Téléphone” album “Another world” in 1984, Corine Marieneau has already started working solo.

In fact, with the help of Louis Bertignac and Eric Serra, the beautiful brunette wrote two songs for the soundtrack of the movie “Subway”. It was, in fact, “Guns and men” as well as “It’s just a mystery”, which was a huge success when it was released.

At the same time, Corine also discovered another love, entering the universe of the seventh art. In fact, in 1985, the musician became an actor by playing alongside Gérard Lanvin, in Patrick Dewolf’s “I Want You”.

In addition, after leaving “The Visitors” in 1991, the singer released his first eponymous album in 2002. An acoustic opus with twelve songs he wrote himself with the help of his former colleague, Louis Bertignac.

On this album, we also find some covers like “La marseillaise visited”, titled “Berceuse” by the opus, as well as “You don’t have to cry” by Stephen Stills.

The goal of this project is to put together all the “Téléphone” albums, some movies and especially the group titles that are not included in their opus.

For their part, other former members of “Téléphone”, Jean-Louis Aubert, Louis Bertignac and Richard Kolinka met in 2015 to form a group under the name “Les Insus”. They performed on stage until 2017 and Corine Marieneau was not invited to join them.

“If we were organizing a big thing with zeniths and arenas, and changed the name to make sure I couldn’t go (…) they wouldn’t want me to come! Mao ra kana! “,

he said.

And in his defense, Louis Bertignac explained that if he and the other members didn’t call his ex-girlfriend for the formation of “Les Insus”, it was to avoid a conflict between them and Jean-Louis. relationship.
