  • In the fall of 1962, she issued an EP and her debut LP, Sylvie, including her rendition of “The Loco-Motion.” Her second success was “Tous mes copains,” which was released on an EP in 1962.

Sylvie Vartan Husband & Marriage

Who is Sylvie Vartan’s husband? Vartan met rock musician Johnny Hallyday after her second performance in Paris Olympia Hall in 1962; they married on April 12, 1965, in Offenburg.  David Michael Benjamin Smet, later known as David Hallyday, was their son. Sylvie Vartan and Johnny Hallyday were France’s “golden couple” of their time, and their marriage was one of the most closely observed for the national press. However, Hallyday publicly favored his friends over parenting, resulting in numerous arguments, and the couple separated on November 4, 1980. Vartan then married record producer Tony Scotti, and the couple adopted Darina, a young Bulgarian girl.
