Serge had two long relationships wit Jane Birkin then Bambou. about Whitney, I regret they never collaborate about writing and recording songs.

He has never had a relationship with Catherine Deneuve, neither he did with Whitney Houston, he just said he wants to f*ck with her, when they shared an interview on TV. Thats all.

ToyanounetAug 28, 2008

He only dated Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin and Bambou.
