The actress, seen in The sense of celebration, revealed photos of his swollen face. She denounces the pressures of her ex-companion, already sentenced to eight months suspended for domestic violence.

“I am exhausted.” The actress Judith Chemla, known in particular for her role in The sense of celebration, posted on his Instagram account on Monday several photos of his swollen face. She accuses her former companion, actor and director Yohan Manca, of domestic violence. Facts for which he was sentenced to eight months in prison suspended, she says in her publication.

“A year ago my face was hurt, blue, purple under my eye, I saw myself distorted. A year ago I looked at my face in the mirror and I knew I couldn’t no longer hide my face. The father of my daughter. Those who are able to do this must be out of harm’s way. But how? I’m not ashamed of this photo, “writes the actress.

“He should be ashamed”

She accuses her ex-companion of continuing to “put pressure” on her: “He should be ashamed today, a year later, instead of continuing to put pressure on me, to think that he still has the means to manipulating, instead of rotting my child’s head. He should be ashamed and quiet, really wanting to be forgiven. He’s not.”

To put an end to this situation, Judith Chemla plans to file a complaint. “I have so much evidence that he continues to try to harm me. Going back to the police station for the 3rd time? Filing a 3rd complaint in 1 year? Being in the cinema business, and having the 8-month-old Sword of Damocles suspended prison sentence… that’s not enough?” She adds:

“What does it take to get him to leave me alone? Really go to jail? He will still play the victim to my daughter and she will suffer from not seeing her father. What do I keep for myself? He will still feel above the law will continue to complain and challenge court decisions to his 5-year-old daughter who he sees as a normal father who he is not.He will continue to believe that he is able to pressure me and morally harass me.”

“I demand to have peace”

And the actress concludes: “I can’t take it anymore. I demand to have peace. Is it clearer like that?” “Loved” more than 5,400 times, the publication has received support from part of the cinema world including Géraldine Nakache, Manu Payet, Reda Kateb, Nicolas Maury, Céline Sallette, Zabou Breitman and Frédérique Bel.
