I haven't visited this thread in a while, part because there was nothing new to follow up the scandal and part because I just grew tired and moved on. But I see the heat is still on with the poor girl.
Again, part of us want to see a happy Hollywood ending (maybe Jazmine on the balcony waiving next to her father?) and another part of us just want to see it end in a legal and just manner (for the dad to be a little more than a checks writer).
At this point it's too early to tell how these lives will develop, but I assume we will see a lot of media coverage as she and her half brother age and become more independent from their respective mothers.

IMO -- it won't be long (next year is my guess) before we see PA escorting his daughter into the Red Cross Ball -- and she'll be on that balcony soon enough. That is... if SHE wants to be there.

Trustworthy- re the balcony thing,redcross ball, et c. As much as that's ok, happy, whatever, I find it hard to believe with the adamant insistence of PA about his privacy. Even though he has done the outing situation with JG, he also had done it with Alex last year when he said- "[child] is my private business and was meant to be kept that way for a long time". Also he did sue for privacy rights with JG (I'm not sure now he won that one as he did with Alex). But I think those rights secured were not for naught.

And he still wants, apparently, to be a dashing cavalier prince. The father thing doesn't, I guess, fit his personal image, at least right now. Just my thoughts.

Lady McA- That was an extensive article. I wonder how much of it is true. Thank you. I've been wondering if that "..its important they know that I love them, or so" quote was actually made. Being petty, I wonder why was it almost eradicated-the print I mean. Anyway, sounds beautiful.

You're welcome and no idea. I don't think the book is available in this country so I haven't read it and I have no intention of buying it either.

Where's Jazmin?

Have we seen any photos from her last visit to see her father?
Is she still in Palm Desert? What High School?
Creative -- you know the area, what have you heard?

It's Jazmin Grace Grimaldi -- NOT Rotolo!!

Great example of how poor news reporting is; Yasmine Rotolo, Jasmine Grimaldi, Jazmine Rotolo -- ?? Whatever happened to solid journalism? I would think these reporters and paparazzi agencies would be embarrassed -- then again... they're not embarrassed by much. Her name has always been and still is: Jazmin Grace Grimaldi !

BTLA MADLA 060806 A · EXCLUSIVE: Prince Albert of Monaco's love-child Jazmin Rotolo enjoys the California sunshine
CAPTION: Prince Albert of Monacos love-child Jazmin Rotolo is spending her school holidays like any other girl- playing on the beach with friends. The 14-year-old showed how she is blossoming into a beauty as she relaxed with a group of pals on a Californian beach- thousands of miles from the palatial life of her regal father in Monaco. Enjoying the 90 degree heat, Jazmin changed into a frilly bikini and spent hours lazing and reading in the sun to top up her tan before cooling down in the Pacific Ocean. Rotolo captured world headlines earlier this year when Prince Albert admitted he was her father. But she went unrecognized as she enjoyed the simple life over the weekend. An onlooker said: "Jazmin just seemed to be enjoying her day like any other schoolgirl. No one on the beach would have guessed she was the daughter of a prince.". .Picture by: Ben Tsui .

Those are old pics. Newscom recently adds all those pics from Splash to their gallery, last week they added the ones of Caroline's vacation this summer. And I think BUNTE has published them 2 or 3 months ago.

type yasmine grimaldi and look at the pics on the last row. the face shape is the same as the girl with the red hat. if it weren't her, why disguising like that...?? she clearly saw the razzis.
Looks like father and daughter have a close relationship.
This is on another thread but might belong here?

Bravo! Very good spot!!
They indeed must have a close relationship -- if he provided for Jazmin and kept her secret or tried to until age 18 -- IMO they will be playing secret games for years. Bravo to all!!

I agree, although they may have been in contact privately but we don't know about it. He may have been supporting her financially too.

It's got to make it tough on PA to find a wife. In addition to constantly being compared with his mother and sisters, she'd have to deal with at least two illegitimate children, possibly more. She'll need to be a Saint!

No, she is PA's illegitmate child and therefor not a Princess.

He has only acknowledged his paternity of her, nothing more official than that.

I am sure that there is something financial, but you can correct me if I am wrong.

Great that she's doing something wonderful! And at such a young age. Looking at the picture, though, I don't see any resemblence to PA. Of course it could just be that picture. The article also incorrectly refers to her as Princess Jasmine.

Other than that I hope she raises awareness for the great charity work and foundation she has created. Kudos to her

I think Tamara Rotolo, Jazmin's mother is behind this fundation and all idea of charity trip. Something here reminds me Nicole Coste, because she also claimed in one of her interviews that she wanted to start charity (for Albert's money).
I guess Jazmin's fundation is also for Albert's money. I always wondered if Jazmin will make a living of being Albert's illegitimate child. I hoped not. But unfortunately her mother chose differentlly. And I am surprised it started so soon. Tamara, give the girl a break, she is just a teenager. I wonder how Grimaldi family is feeling when they read about Jazmin as a Monaco royalty and calling her a princess. The whole idea of this trip is to be in the spotlight, like always indirectly. This tactic Tamara has been using for years.(These interviews given by Her friend Bruce Mccormack).
I must tell Jazmin is a pretty girl though.

You know, I never thought of it in these terms. I did wonder at first if it was being funded by Prince Albert? Wouldn't she be in school at this time of the year? I live in Canada, but I know that it's the school term in California. Does anyone know if there is a break going on now for those students?

I think it's wonderful that young people get involved in the community though, and understand there are people who are less fortunate than they are.

Isn't Tamara a Real Estate Agent or something along those lines?

NC is just a money grabbing gold digger in my opinion, but that's for another post.

I really doubt Prince Albert or Moanco or Princely family has anything to do with this fundation. But Albert's money has to do with that. Of course using his money to help needy people is a great idea but she could do it quietly.
Tamara was a gold digger to, she once failed a paternity suit and presented very itemized list of her expenses including a nanny and cable TV.

Well Thanksgiving is coming up in the States & most places (schools included) have at least Thursday & Friday off. And since she goes to private school her schools days can be different (they could be off of school this whole week)

I definitely think the money came from donations, but the person who set this up (Tamara most likely) used Jazmin's connection to the Grimaldi family to do so. I'm not saying Jazmin isn't into the charity, but it seems like a strategic move on Tamara;s part.

Off topic, but the people of Fiji are beautiful. :)

if you check through all the links of the jazmin fund, the executive director is gavin de becker ... the link below describes who de becker is ... for you long time posters you might recall he was the one identified in the press as handling jazmin's security ... that info about de becker came out when she was publicly acknowledged by prince albert

https://www.gavindebecker.com/bios-gavin_de_becker.cfm


unless there are two gavin de beckers and this is a second one with the same name in jazmin's life then, i stand corrected ...

peace!
