That is true, but this time it is not Bild who came out with the story, but a serious paper and other serious media have picked up on it. And there similarities to last year. PA was/is out of town, Thierry Lacoste made last years statement and apparently confirmed the story to Figaro this time (so now he or the palace just need to confirm this). TF1 did the first interview after the announcement and are the only ones who did not cover the story. That is unusual and only explicable with a special deal for an interview. Maybe he will be giving an interview to them tomorrow on his way back from slovenia. I'm sure that the palace was informed about the book and the date, so they had all the time they needed to cut a deal or even influence the date (if they wanted to).

'Careless' Prince recognises second illegitimate child
by Charles Bremner

PRINCE ALBERT of Monaco will recognise a second illegitimate child, the 14-year-old daughter of a married Californian waitress who visited the Riviera state, according to a French book published today.

Spokesmen for the 48-year-old Prince did not deny the report, which made national news in France yesterday, but said that they had nothing to comment “for the moment”.

The book, by Lena Lutaud and Thiébault Dromard, journalists on Le Figaro, says that lawyers on both sides of the Atlantic are completing an agreement under which Prince Albert will provide for Jazmin Grace, the daughter of Tamara Rotolo, from Desert Springs, California. “Albert and Tamara Rotolo met on the Côte d’Azur in July 1991 where Tamara had come with her husband on holiday.

Slowly but surely the German media is starting to catch on.

ABC just announced according to a French Newspaper...
If he is coming out with this, it's too bad he is having to help promote a tell-all book - I guess the mother found away to press the issue. It doesn't sound like she has her daughter's best interest in mind if she let this or made this happen a tell-all book about her daughter while she is only 14? Disgraceful. I think naming her after Princess Grace is in really bad taste - same w/ Nicole really shows their true colors. You think if she got pregnant with John Doe that she would name her after the guys mother? It's too bad PA didn't learn after this one.

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (AFP) - Prince Albert of Monaco refused to comment on a report that he is to grant legal recognition to a second child born out of wedlock.

"I am not accustomed to talking of matters of a private nature in a press conference, and I am not going to change that rule," he told journalists while on a visit to Slovenia.

I must say, this is just tacky! And I am sure we don't know all the facts, but you wait FOURTEEN years to acknowledge your child? Regardless of the motives of the mother, the child didn't ask to be here. I hope for his sake, he can establish some type of relationship with the child. And its a darn shame, he didn't learn anything from this prior to the birth of his son.

Oh, I am well aware that Le Figaro broke the story first and since I was born and raised in Europe I know that the paper is a serious one..I simply pointed out what BILD is all about..As a sidenote here: my parents buy this rag every day..sigh..The Spiegel is a serious paper too and I guess all the European papers are jumping on the bandwagon..We haven't heard anything here in Canada though..we're too concerned about the Oilers..:)
Yes, here is to hoping that tomorrow a statement will be issued..The longer this takes ,the worse it gets..But that's just my humble opinion..I am still a bit in shock..I had really thought that Jazmin wasn't his child...What about you, Paca?

Let's wait till the official confirmaion/denial of the story, shall we? It's bound to come pretty soon because now the fire started, they need some sort of announcement.
I personally always thought that Jazmin was not Prince Albert's daughter. I am not that sure now but I am going to wait till the official announcement.
I hope they (Jazmin's mother and Prince Albert, if he's the father) will handle the situation in a way, that will not hurt the girl, because she's is the innocent side here.

How mad do you think NC is going to be when albert confirms partenity. I mean didn't someone say that she had said that TR was crazy walking around saying her kid was PA's. I am sure she was hoping she is the only one who would share this bond with PA. She must be pasing up and down in her villa fuming. Probably planning on asking for a bigger villa just to stick it to him.

Who knows, but NC is the one to drag all that baby-business laundry into public in the most totally embarrassing way for PA. She got on the payroll. But again, he is a grown man.

It's all over the news now. From the articles that I read today Jazmin's mother has a common denominator with Alexandre's mother: both women were married when they dated Prince Albert. That shows an interesting pattern on him to go after the ones already tied to someone else.

Also shows how the very catholic prince Albert skipped comandment # 7, you know, the no sleeping with someone's wife thingy.

My thoughts exactly when I first read about it. Has the Catholic church made any comments on either of the two relationships?

They must be still busy with the Da Vinci Code, but as soon as the movie is forgoten, and they have time to check out on Albert, the Pope will probably check him in an Opus Dei resort for a round or two with the whip. Albert has been one bad boy.

I do certainly think that the Vatican is far too busy with other things to be concerned with any of Alberts personal activities, but that's just my opinion.:p :)

Caro is the opposite of Albert -- she doesn't seem to trust most people and Albert seems to be trusting of very many people who do not deserve to be trusted.
Hallooooooooooooo, did she not have an affair with her friends husband and even married him. There is nothing different between them she is just a little more classierand kind of wised with age i guess while PA didn't. I don't think it matters who alex or jazmins mothers are they are still her brothers kids and i don't see why she could not let them hang out with her kids. Of course they will not be visiting them in their homes thanks to their mothers. Lets not forget her kids are old enough to make those kind of decisions too and I will not be suprised to see photos of charlotte and jazmin in the near future onces this is settled. I think she is going to be very much a part of the younger generations lives.
