Indeed, he has not always had an easy life, especially when he was a teenager. At a very young age, he had to ask the Salvation Army for help. If the young boy did odd jobs to help his parents, he also had to turn to associations. As he confided in 2021, at the microphone of Europe 1. “ They can allow people who don’t have the means, like us, to still be able to stay with accommodation“, he explained on the set. Indeed, the boy lived there for several months, his parents no longer being able to support him. “Finally, my first foster home was the Salvation Army in Ménilmontant”he added.
A somewhat chaotic start to life, but which in no way predestined the future of the star.
