During the trial, Bruno Vandelli, accused alongside his former partner, claimed that he believed the young man was older and that any interaction had ended as soon as they discovered his age.

One year suspended sentence requested against choreographer Bruno Vandelli for corruption of a minor

On Wednesday, April 17, the prosecution requested a one-year suspended prison sentence against Cannes choreographer Bruno Vandelli. He is appearing before the Criminal Court of Grasse (Alpes-Maritimes) alongside his ex-husband for acts of corruption of a minor. The decision will be announced on June 28.

The two men are accused of exchanging pornographic photos and videos with a teenager between 2016 and 2017. The victim, whom they had met during dance workshops, was 14 and 15 years old at the time, the legal age of sexual majority. During the hearing, Bruno Vandelli claimed that he believed the young man was older and that all communication had ceased once they found out his age. Now 22 years old, the young man remains deeply affected according to his lawyer Kaltoum Gachi, even though he did not attend the hearing. It was his mother, also a civil party, who came to testify.

The choreographer is already being prosecuted for rape following a complaint filed by another of his former students, former “Star Academy” dance teacher Yanis Marshall. In an interview with the local newspaper Nice-Matin, Bruno Vandelli, a judge on the show “Popstars2” on M6 in 2002, denounced “lies and slanders,” describing a consensual relationship as a “love affair” when the young dancer was 16 and he was 44.
