Alain Delon: Police take 72 Firearms From a French Film Star’s Home

French authorities confiscated 72 firearms and over 3,000 rounds of ammunition from the residence of screen icon Alain Delon.

A shooting range was discovered at the actor’s residence in Douchy-Montcorbon, approximately 135km (84 miles) south of Paris.

According to prosecutors, Mr. Delon did not possess the necessary permit to own a gun.

At 88 years old, the actor was a prominent figure in the golden era of French cinema, recognised for his tough-guy image in popular films such as The Samurai and Borsalino.

Following a court-appointed official’s visit to Mr. Delon’s home, a search was conducted on Tuesday upon discovering a weapon.

The celebrity’s health has been declining in recent years following a stroke in 2019 and dealing with another undisclosed serious condition, as reported by French media.

His family issues have been widely reported in France.

The three children have publicly aired their complaints through insults, accusations, legal actions, and covert recordings.

The most recent legal discussions revolved around Mr. Delon’s medical care. A court-approved doctor conducted an examination last month, but the conclusions were quickly challenged by the children.

Issues were initially brought up about him last year when his children lodged a complaint against his former live-in assistant Hiromi Rollin.

According to them, the Japanese film production assistant is accused of engaging in “moral harassment” of their father. Her attorney refuted all the accusations when they were made.

Mr Delon’s most recent significant public appearance was to accept an honorary Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2019.

In September 2019, he was present at the funeral of his friend and fellow star Jean-Paul Belmondo in Paris.
