PARIS — New twists have entered into the already tangled web that is the Bettencourt affair.
On Wednesday, Françoise Bettencourt Meyers launched legal proceedings against Patrice de Maistre, the financial adviser of her 88-year-old mother, Liliane Bettencourt, and Fabrice Goguel, Bettencourt’s former tax lawyer. Bettencourt Meyers claims the two men —plus photographer François-Marie Banier — have abused the weakness of Bettencourt, the L’Oréal heiress.
