Sheila: How many children has the singer had?

Sheila suffered a lot from rumors about her pregnancy in 1975 … Could this be the reason why the singer did not have other children than Ludovic Bayle-Chancel?

Ludovic Bayle-Chancel was born on April 7, 1975, and he is the only child of Sheila. His father, Guy Bayle, better known by his pseudonym “Ringo”, is a famous singer of the Seventies. This one meets the interpreter of the title “Bienvenue les copains” in 1970, and between them, it is love at first sight. A highly publicized marriage ensued in 1973. But unfortunately, in 1979, their relationship ended suddenly, and in a bad way: Sheila and Ringo left each other angry, to the point of definitively cutting the bridges. Ouch.

During his lifetime, Ludovic Chancel released a book, entitled “Fils de”. A book published on May 17, 2005, in which the son reproaches the mother, and in the public square, for his lack of presence at his side when he was a child. Indeed, the latter suffered for a long time from the fame of his parents, iconic singers of their generation, and the fact that Sheila, like Ringo, was always on the go. This confession book was a blow to the singer, who said in an interview: “He wrote in his book that the driver corrected his homework. But I never had a driver …” You understood it: relations were very strained within the family, and especially between the star and her only son, until shortly before the latter’s death …

Sheila: what did her son Ludovic Chancel die of at 42 years old?

Ludovic Chancel, who has spent more than half of his life at take drugs, wanted end with life : “At one point, I tell myself that I’m going to do it, and that’s what I want. I don’t have the courage to go buy a gun and put a bullet in my head – it would have been more simple-, but with the quantities of drugs that I take, I tell myself that I will get there, I will leave “ he had sadly declared. In an interview with Paris Match, Sheila said she came to the hospital to support her son, dying, looking back on a terribly painful moment for her: “On the day of his hospitalization, one of his friends was waiting for me in the hall and showed me a photo. And there, I recognize Ludo lying on the floor, his head slumped against a wall, his arms dangling, underpants and tank top, white powder residue in the mouth and nose “. Alas, the singer’s son died on July 8, 2017, of an overdose cocaine and benzodiazepine.
