Who is Clémentine Igou? Meet Gérard Depardieu's 30-year younger girlfriend after Elisabeth Depardieu divorce
Gerard Depardieu is being investigated in France for alleged rape and sexual assault. It was back in August 30, 2018, that news became public that the actor had been accused of "raping and sexually assaulting an actress." The woman said that between August 7 to 13 that year she was abused in the actor's flat in Paris. While in 2018 the case was dropped, the next year saw the actress "relaunching" the investigation which led to Depardieu being filed with criminal charges. The case was recently reopened by the judiciary.
Depardieu, who as per reports has been part of 170 movies, is considered to be one of "France's most prolific actors". Born in Châteauroux, France on 27 December 1948, the now 72-year-old left school at the age of 13 and took up a job in print works. He then went to Paris while 16 to take up acting and dance. There he married his first wife Élisabeth Guignot in 1970. The couple share two children together - namely, late Guillaume and Julie. While the actor had separated from Guignot, he fathered a daughter named Roxanne in 1992 with model Karine Silla. Furthermore, in the year 2006, Depardieu fathered another son Jean with Hélène Bizot. As of now though, Depardieu has lived with his current partner Clémentine Igou since 2005. Read on to find out who Igou is.

Who is Clémentine Igou?
Igou, 41, a Harvard University graduate has a 30-year-age gap when it comes to her relationship with Depardieu. The duo had met in 2004 in Italy and as revealed by The Sun were "drawn" together because of their "mutual love of wine." Igou, who is a marketing director for a Tuscan Vineyard sounded like a perfect match for Depardieu who also owns a vineyard in the region. Even though they have been living together for a while, the duo has kept their relationship on the down low, with the publication revealing that they were first only publically photographed together in the year 2014. Besides being a marketing director, Igou is also a novelist and lives her days between France and Italy.
