The news caused a stir in the media. Kendji Girac was shot on Monday April 22, 2024, in Landes, at a reception area for the Traveler community in Biscarrosse, according to information from BFMTV. Seriously injured in the chest, the 27-year-old singer was treated and hospitalized in Bordeaux.

According to our colleagues, the incident occurred this morning after 5:30 a.m. on the reception area where the winner of the third season of The Voice was. Emergency services intervened quickly to rescue him. Are his days in danger? What happened during the night from Sunday to Monday? We take stock.

According to a source close to the case at AFP, the vital prognosis of Kendji Maillé (at the civil registry) is no longer in jeopardy although it was a few hours earlier, when help arrived. Shooting ? Accidental shooting? Settling scores ? No leads were ruled out around the incident which almost cost the life of the main hero of the fiction Champion, broadcast in September 2022.

“He is still hospitalized for a gunshot wound to the chest. The gendarmes, who intervened, faced around twenty, around thirty people who, on his land hosting Travelers, had “first told the gendarmes that nothing had happened”, according to police-justice journalist Raphaël Maillochon, in the TF1 morning show. If the difficult intervention took place in a “complicated” context between these people and the gendarmes, we learned that several “relatives and friends of Kendji Girac” gathered in front of the Bordeaux hospital. What do we know about the rest of the story?

According to another source close to the investigation for BFMTV, the interpreter of Color Gitano and Andalouse spoke to investigators. He would have said that the incident was the consequence of “mishandling of the weapon on the part of the singer”. The young father and ex-coach of The Voice Kids would have received “a projectile in the chest with an exit point in the back” while wanting to try it after having bought it at a flea market the day before, according to his statements to the police.

“Swabs were carried out on the singer’s partner. The same operation will be carried out on the victim. This is a sample aimed at determining who is the perpetrator of the shooting”, specifies the website of the news channel . Several days after his revelations, several people spoke out to clarify this matter, after the opening of an investigation…

After the revelations of the public prosecutor of Mont-de-Marsan on the circumstances of the tragedy, the singer Kendji Girac remained silent in the media. This Friday, May 10, 2024, the companion of Soraya Miranda, also questioned by investigators, finally gave her news on his Instagram page. He broke the silence by publishing a press release on the occasion of a special date for him.

“10 years ago I won The Voice thanks to you and this date is forever engraved in my heart. I would have liked to give back a little of everything you gave me by being on stage today for celebrate this anniversary, but it is not possible and I am responsible for it,” he began, continuing. “I have apologized at length to my family and my team who have supported me since day one but I wanted, on this special day which changed my life, to apologize to you because I know all the pain and worry what I could do to you.”

The son of a pruner father, a stay-at-home mother and brother of a renowned pastor in the gypsy community continued by thanking his fans “for the unfailing love that you have given me for 10 years now and that you continue to give me since the tragedy, you give me so much strength”. He also gives news on his state of health. “I am treating myself, I am resting to come back even stronger thanks to you and I want to leave this period of my life behind me.”

Currently recovering, Eva Alba’s father concludes with optimism. “Today, I move forward and I will do everything to live up to your support and trust. I thank heaven that I am alive. Thank you Lord. I love you.”
