Prince Albert has reportedly cut off his swirly son since marrying his new white wife…
Black Mother Of Prince Albert’s Son Says He Has Cut Him Off
Alexandre Coste Grimaldi is the ten-year-old illegitimate son of Monaco’s ruler, born after Albert engaged flight attendant Nicole Coste in a six-year relationship.
Via Daily Mail UK reports:
Renowned for his roving eye, Albert – known as the ‘playboy prince’ who has been linked to a string of beauties including Naomi Campbell, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brooke Shields – demanded DNA tests before he accepted paternity. As his subjects reeled at the news of his liaison, he continued to disown Alexandre, even though behind the scenes he was more than happy to be part of his son’s life.
But since his marriage to South African-born Princess Charlene in 2011, he has distanced himself from his only son.
Albert already has an illegitimate daughter, Jazmin, now 22.
In an exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday, Nicole, who has fought hard – but unsuccessfully – for Alexandre to be recognised as a prince, tells how she was shunned by Monaco society and left to explain to her tearful son why his father no longer sees him.
‘The truth is that, I’m sorry to say, Albert hasn’t seen Alexandre since a brief visit last September. It has become impossible since he married that girl,’ she says referring to Charlene, 36. ‘I suppose as a new wife, how would one feel? But she should think about my innocent child. I don’t want to attack her but I think it is just jealousy and I don’t know why. I have been through hell in my fight for my son’s name and future.’
Understandably loath to go into the detail about her son’s distress, Nicole leaves it to a close confidante to explain how the distance has affected her son. ‘Alexandre misses his daddy dreadfully,’ the friend says. ‘He has started to feel sad and rejected. He asks, “Why can’t I see Daddy?” He has to be told that his father is busy.’
When Alexandre was born Albert provided a generous financial allowance for Nicole and her son and moved them into a luxurious villa on the French Riviera. Nicole says initially Albert was a loving father:
‘Albert and his son shared an affectionate, natural father/son relationship with trips and pirate-themed birthday parties,’ she reveals. ‘The Prince was proud of his son, often cuddling him warmly.
‘Despite the end of our relationship a boy needs his father and I wrote to Albert saying this was not about money. Our son needs a father with whom he can talk, who will pay regular visits – not one who appears and disappears.’
But while Albert was, albeit in private, a hands-on father, he refused to acknowledge paternity. It was only when DNA tests proved he was the father that he accepted the situation.
In 2005 he announced he was the father but decreed his illegitimate son would not inherit the throne. He did, however, vow that Alexandre would be cared for financially. When Albert met and then became engaged to South African swimmer Charlene Wittstock in 2010, his interest in his son waned.
Nicole felt sidelined and snubbed by society friends who feared they would offend the new Princess-to-be if they consorted with her.
No matter how fawked up a parent’s relationship is, a kid deserves to know both of them! Grace Kelly would be ashamed, embarrassed, and disappointed at all the horrible choices her children have made.
