Romantic Photographs of Dalida and Alain Delon in the Garden of Their House in Montmartre, 1972

Alain Delon is one of the most popular actors of his generation. During his career, he also befriended countless stars… But not only. His conquests are numerous. But her love affair with Dalida has long fascinated her admirers. As a reminder, the duo knew each other before being famous. They have always encouraged each other in their projects. The lovebirds also recorded the iconic hit “Paroles, Paroles” together in the late 1972.

Orlando, the brother of the singer who died in 1987, confided in their romance in the pages of TV Star. Himself, however close to his sister, was not aware of the real links that existed between Dalida and Alain Delon. Their couple, he only learned of it when the two lovebirds recorded the title “Paroles, Paroles” (“Words, Words”) in 1972, almost ten years after their crush: “They had met in Paris at their beginnings, in the mid-1950s. They occupied maids’ rooms on the same floor. And they met again in Rome around 1963-1964 and there was a story between them. I was unaware of their romance.”

In April 2011, in his book “Les Femmes de ma vie” (“The women in my life”), published by Carpentier, Alain Delon lifted the veil on his relationship with Dalida: “She came from the Middle East with, as her only baggage, a title of Miss Egypt 1954. […] Ten years later, she had become Dalida and I, Delon“, specifying in passing that “the rare witnesses of [la] liaison remained discreet for years.”

Their breakup was recorded smoothly. “The complicity was intact,” assured the actor who never accepted his disappearance which occurred in 1987. “Dali, it upsets me, because I loved this woman terribly. I suffered so much when she was made to leave… I would have liked to be there, to prevent her from leaving like that. […] She had made up her mind, she didn’t want to go back, she wanted to go,” regretted the actor. “She left very quickly… and I know why.”
