The trial of star Aya Nakamura and her ex-companion Vladimir Boudnikoff, who were to be tried this Thursday, November 24 in Bobigny for reciprocal violence against a spouse, has been postponed at the request of their lawyers.

The trial of star Aya Nakamura and her ex-companion Vladimir Boudnikoff, who were to be tried Thursday in Bobigny for reciprocal violence against a spouse during an evening in August in Rosny-sous-Bois (Seine-Saint-Denis), was dismissed at the request of their lawyers.

“We are going to ask for the dismissal,” had slipped to AFP Cerasela Vlad, Mr. Boudnikoff’s lawyer, before the start of the hearing before the criminal court. A few moments later, Me Vlad and his colleague Karim Sebihat, who represents the singer, came out of the room confirming the dismissal, without specifying the date.

Their customers were not present, AFP noted. The request for dismissal was made without the presence of the many journalists who came to cover the hearing: they were not authorized to enter the room, officially for reasons of limited places.

Aya Nakamura absent

“I thought she (Aya Nakamura) would be there, but apparently not,” said a woman who introduced herself as “an absolute fan” of the singer. “We try to follow her everywhere,” added this Parisian, leopard outfit and T-shirt bearing the image of her idol.

Known for her planetary hits, including “Djadja”, Aya Danioko – the real name of the 27-year-old singer – and producer Vladimir Boudnikoff, 34, must answer for “violence by spouse with ITT (total interruption of work) less than eight days”.

On the night of August 6 to 7, the police intervened twice at the producer’s home in Rosny-sous-Bois, against a backdrop of tension. Placed in police custody, the interpreter with gold records had claimed to have suffered violence from her spouse. He had been arrested in turn, traced a source familiar with the matter.

“Not really hits”

“There weren’t really any blows”, qualified this source, evoking “scratches” for the two protagonists and “the fact that he kept her on the ground”. The two artists, parents of a little girl, had come out free with a summons to court. “We did some stupid things that night,” Mr. Boudnikoff wrote on Instagram after the fact, assuring that “nothing serious” had happened. Requested by AFP on Tuesday, Warner, the singer’s label, did not respond.

At 27, Aya Nakamura is the most listened to French-speaking singer in the world. Born in Bamako, the Franco-Malian artist grew up in Aulnay-sous-Bois (Seine-Saint-Denis). His career took off with his second album “Nakamura” (2018), followed by a third opus in 2020, “Aya”, which enjoyed the same immediate success.

Music producer Vladimir Boudnikoff also directed the clip for one of his flagship titles, “Pookie”, which peaked at some 333 million views on YouTube since its release in 2019.
