Eric Chardin ‘locked himself in the bathroom’ after marrying Stone – and they ended up living together for 10 years

Between Stone and Eric Charden, the ocean of their love knew all kinds of tides, high and low. However, the disagreements did not cut the friendship bond that united them, even after their divorce. AmoMama tells you the story of famous Avventura performers.

The duo who introduced “Made in Normandy” to the French people, and even to the rest of the world, surprised those around them with their unparalleled relationship. No one thought they would last for so many years, yet they stuck out even outside of the pair.

A rocky start but a peaceful end? Back to the story of Stone and Eric Chardin.

First meeting without chemistry

At the time, while Stone, real name Annie Guterat, was vying to become beauty queen at a French nightclub, she caught the attention of Eric Chardin, who was checking on her. Of course, since he was a juror in the competition along with Sophie Ajacinsky, Carlos and Antoine.

The winner of the competition, which will be newly called ‘Miss Petnik’ will win a trip to London and a cash prize. And Stone didn’t go with a dead hand, as she finally won the title. However, Eric Charden did not have much to do with it. When it’s time to vote, all of the jurors vote for Stone, except for one: her future husband.

On the contrary, Chardin voted for Norma who was Stone’s friend.

However, this vote, which was undoubtedly considered ironic, years later, was not what frustrated Miss Pittnick. It was rather the hostile behavior adopted by Eric Sharden during this evening: in the eyes of the one who had been his close companion, Eric Sharden was “the man who frowns.”

“He was drowning in his boredom in alcohol and he didn’t even vote for me. He locked himself in the toilet. To say it wasn’t love at first sight,”

The singer recounted with amusement, years after the death of her ex-husband.

There was no chemistry in the air that night. On the other hand, the duo saw each other again a few months later, still in the same nightclub where the “most stylish” Eric finally offered to maintain a professional collaboration.

The collaboration became a romance, to the point that Stone and Eric Charden didn’t wait long before formalizing their romance. Unfortunately, in a natural way is not the word to describe their transition from a simple relationship to marriage.

In 1966, Stone and Eric Chardin tied the knot, without being “imposed”. If the essence of commitment is not the will and love of the lovebirds, how does marriage lead to a happy married life? Well, Stone’s father didn’t agree with that.

The singer mentions:

“I was 18, I was in love, and my dad, who was old fashioned, was interested in that.”

In fact, to act as a lobbyist, Stone’s father would not allow her to go on tour without having gone through the marriage stage. Reluctantly, Eric offered Chardin, this time despite his mother’s objections.

“Eric’s mother, on the other hand, did not view this marriage favorably (…) he was the only child and suffered from the weight of his mother’s possession,”

The singer explained.

Stone and Eric Chardin’s wedding day was not a respite for both families, further fanning the scorching fire of their early relationship.

The celebration, although it happened very quickly, “like a formality,” did not happen as they had planned. Without a party, she left guests confused when Eric’s mother suddenly left her.

The angry young groom locks himself in the bathroom and stays there for two days. Then the singer admits: “Our wedding night was disastrous!”.

Although neither beginnings nor marriage were the romance they had dreamed of, the duo still lived in a love affair symbolized by the birth of their son Baptiste.

However, after ten years of relationship, the fire of passion faded and the couple made the decision to divorce in 1974:

“We got married very young, and after ten years, love is no longer the same,”

A no-conflict divorce made both of them meet a new love, each on their part, at about the same time. Eric Met Pascal Weston, Mario.

It was obvious chemistry between the newly formed couple as the singer said:

“None of us were unhappy. On the contrary, we were all playing the same music. Like some kind of perfect tribe!”

This symbiosis was so real that Eric Chardin and Pascal chose Stone to become the godmother for their daughter, Nolwen. Their friendship transcended their separation.
