Valérie Bénaïm looks back on the lunches she shared with Patrick Poivre d’Arvor

Currently 74 years old, Patrick Poivre d’Arvor has found himself embroiled in several cases of sexual assault since 2021. It all started when his former partner made the decision to bring him to justice for acts of rape. This had motivated other alleged victims to file a complaint against him. Most of these charges having however been prescribed, the TF1 journalist finally benefited from a dismissal. A situation that has not yet calmed the anger of these women who have this time used the media to express themselves. Which was not the case of Valérie Benaïm.

Valérie Benaïm direct in her remarks

The columnist of Touche not at my post had declared during a recent interview to have dealt with Patrick Poivre d’Arvor. The journalist would have repeatedly offered to have lunch with him. Which she didn’t refuse since she couldn’t see what could be wrong with that. The one who had been singled out by all these women would therefore have decided to use his charm to seduce the young journalist that Valérie Benaïm was at the time. Attempts that ultimately all remained sterile.

Valérie Benaïm had in any case confessed never to have felt in danger in front of the advances of Patrick Poivre d’Arvor. To have declined them was enough for her and it was not necessary to go further. In any case, Patrick Poivre d’Arvor remains presumed innocent of the charges until the final judgment of this case.
