Plagued by serious health problems and confined to his only video platform, Pierre Ménès revealed during his trial for sexual assault the amount of his disability pension.
The last two years have been particularly painful for Pierre Ménès since the revelations around several sexual assaults on women and his forced departure from Canal +. And not only because of the storm caused by the accusations against him. The former reporter for L’Equipe also faced serious health problems, which led to the amputation of two toes and to now move around with a cane.
Professionally, Pierre Ménès also knows a crossing of the desert. After having had to resolve to turn the page on Canal+, the former CFC polemicist tried to revive himself by launching his site in partnership with Reworld Media, but the project, for lack of audience, quickly collapsed. He nevertheless continues to publish his videos on his Youtube channel “Pierrot le foot”.
A disability pension
However, Pierre Ménès is unemployed and also receives a disability pension after having been transplanted with a liver and a kidney. Judged on Wednesday for cases of sexual assault, the native of Paris was left to reveal the amount. “6,500 euros per month”, he replied to the prosecutor. A sum to which is therefore added his unemployment benefits and the income from his Youtube channel. The one who will celebrate his 60th birthday this summer had also received 400,000 euros when he left Canal +.
Asked about his salary in the Canal group shortly after the start of the case which would precipitate his loss, Pierre Ménès had played fair against Jordan Deluxe, while his interlocutor mentioned the sum of 15,000 euros monthly. ” Oh no… It was before that, after there was the deduction at source since I was placed on a permanent contract. 15,000 euros was perhaps gross, net it was much less“, he then confided, suggesting that his salary was around 10,000 euros. He also mentioned his income received for his partnership with the sports betting site Unibet. ” About what I signed as a contract and what they did with itvsIt’s not really cheap. I still had my head on 4 by 3 in all the cities of France. It was around 100,000 euros,” he assured.
