Hallyday's Daughter In Suicide Attempt
Actress LAURA SMET, the daughter of French rocker Johnny Hallyday and screen star Nathalie Baye, has been rushed to hospital following a suicide attempt in Paris.
Smet, 26, was taken to Hopital du Val-de-Grace by ambulance on Monday afternoon (04Jan09) after her boyfriend Julien Delajoux called emergency services at 2pm local time.
It is believed she had downed a mixture of alcohol and medication near St Germain Des Pres church. Paramedics administered first aid at the scene and then transferred Smet to hospital, where she is reportedly recovering from the scare.
Last month (Dec09), her dad Johnny Hallyday launched a lawsuit against surgeon Stephane Delajoux - the brother of Julien Delajoux - over allegations he botched surgery to the singer's back.
On Sunday (03Jan10), Smet gave an interview to French newspaper JDD in which she revealed she was torn between her love for her father and her loyalty towards her boyfriend Delajoux.
