Singer and queen of the night, Régine died in May 2022, at the age of 92. Almost two years after her death, Dave gave some details about the difficult end of his friend’s life.

Dave, the singer of the hits Vanina and of On the Swan side, seems immortal. He still has the same energy and smile on his face as when he started at 19. He has the gift of laughing at everything, even serious things. He had a serious accident at his Parisian home in 2022, from which he suffered after-effects and yet he managed to joke about it. It was certainly this temperament that led him to become friends with Régine, who also made everything in life a celebration. However, the one who is in a relationship with Patrick Loiseau reveals the last moments of the star of the night and it was not funny.

Régine ended her life in a special EHPAD

Régine died on May 1, 2022, at the Maison des artistes, in Batignolles (Paris). She had been a resident there since 2021 because she could no longer live alone in her Parisian apartment. “The establishment has an adapted care unit specializing in the care of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or related disorders.“, specifies the website of the high-end medical establishment, located in the 17th arrondissement.

Régine’s funeral took place on May 9, at the crematorium of the Père-Lachaise cemetery, in the presence of an audience of VIPs.

How did Régine and Dave meet?

On the set of Good morning !, Dave was asked about how he met the Queen of the Night and how they became friends. I went to Saint-Tropez and one day, I sang a song by Régine with a very high voice that was not her (…) and she came to me. I didn’t know who it was. I saw a lady with a certain presence and she said to me ‘but, it’s me. When you come to Paris, come see me in the club.’ And we saw each other regularly says the Dutch singer. In any case, this friendship continued until the star’s last moments and the singer never abandoned her, until the end.
