The 27-year-old former winner of France’s The Voice competition was discovered wounded at a traveler camp in Biscarrosse on France’s southwestern coast earlier this week, prompting a flurry of speculation and concern.

 

Regional prosecutor Olivier Janson revealed startling details during a press conference on Thursday, shedding light on the events surrounding Girac’s injury

 

According to Janson, Girac confessed that the gunshot wound was not accidental, as initially reported, but rather a calculated attempt to stage his own suicide.

The motive, Janson explained, stemmed from Girac’s desperation to prevent his partner from leaving him, who had been threatening to end their relationship.

 

“He was very frightened when he heard her talking about leaving; he panicked and wanted to scare her,” Janson stated, describing Girac’s state of mind leading up to the incident. “In a way, he simulated suicide,” he added, underscoring the singer’s misguided attempt to manipulate the situation.

 

Girac’s admission came amidst revelations of his struggles with substance abuse, with tests revealing high levels of alcohol and cocaine in his system following a night of revelry. 

 

Janson highlighted Girac’s “emerging addiction to alcohol” as a significant point of contention between him and his partner, shedding light on the underlying tensions in their relationship.

 

Disturbingly, Girac’s partner had reportedly expressed concern about his threats of self-harm during previous arguments, painting a troubling picture of the dynamics within their relationship. 

 

However, Janson reiterated that investigations had ruled out any external involvement in the incident, effectively dispelling speculation of foul play.

Furthermore, Janson dismissed the possibility of the gunshot being accidental, citing the nature of the firearm involved.

 

“A shot cannot go off on its own,” he emphasized, firmly attributing the incident to Girac’s actions. Despite the gravity of the situation, Janson indicated that the ongoing probe into the incident would likely be dropped, barring any significant developments. 

 

Girac, meanwhile, faces a lengthy road to recovery, with Janson estimating that he would require “several months” to recuperate from his injuries.

 

The shocking revelation has sent ripples through Girac’s fanbase and the music industry at large, prompting reflection on the pressures faced by public figures and the consequences of unhealthy coping mechanisms. 

 

As Girac grapples with the fallout of his actions, the incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of seeking help and support during times of personal crisis.

 

As the dust begins to settle, questions linger about Girac’s future and the impact of this harrowing episode on his career and personal life. 

 

Only time will tell how he navigates the aftermath of this deeply troubling incident, but one thing remains clear – the road to redemption will be fraught with challenges and introspection for the troubled singer.
