Serge Gainsbourg (born Lucien Ginsburg; 2 April 1928 – 2 March 1991) was a French musician, singer-songwriter, author, filmmaker and actor. Regarded as the most important figure in French pop whilst alive, he was renowned for often provocative and scandalous releases which caused uproar in France, dividing its public opinion, as well as his diverse artistic output, which ranged from his early work in jazz, chanson, and yé-yé to later efforts in rock, funk, reggae, and electronica. Gainsbourg's varied musical style and individuality make him difficult to categorize, although his legacy has been firmly established and he is often regarded as one of the world's most influential popular musicians.

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.
