    maybe they were embarrased to be seen on camera??? :D

    hopefully, this will only affect justine's game in a GOOD way.

    i heard justine's mom chastised justine for buying her a house because if the gov't found out, they'd cut off her welfare.

    It wasn't released, and nobody discussed it. It is intriguing, but we may never find out...

    Some people are just...

    Justine's mother is dead since she was 11 years or so... Don't believe everything you hear...
    Who do you think she dedicates every RG too in the sky... The pidgeons??? :confused:

    Probably because, as much as we might like to believe, we 'the public' don't own celebrities. Private life is private, and kudos to her for keeping some of her private life just that!

    Sorry, I LOL-ed at this post.

    I don't think Justine would joke about her mother's death.

    It's been said her father didn't approve of her marriage. Not knowing Pierre-Yves, he looked like a leech. He was at every tournament basically. Did he have a job?

    IIRC, he was 'her manager'.

    no wrong.There were talks of the father abusing the mother,long before she got sick.
    She(Henin) left home at a young age to go train away while the whole **** was going down.
    She apparently even accused Henin of not providing adequate care while the mum was sick with cancer and to some extent held him responsible of her death
    Apparently she never forgave her brothers and sister who "supported" Jose Henin(the father) in the treatment of the mum.
    There have been talks of "abuse" too of Justine at the hand of daddy and one of her brothers,something denied by the father;dismissed by the brother in question and members of the family and it's also true they never approved of her marrying so young and moving away with her man to Monaco.
    A book was written by a journalist who got close to the family enough to get details a few years ago.

    All the same, i still wouldn't take that as gospel truth. Partly cos unless Justine comes out and tells all, we won't know whether it was correct. Partly cos, like OrangeOne, I think she is very much entitled to keep some things private. If anything, she should be telling me how to hit that gorgeous backhand; who cares about her dad? :p

    No.. wrong... to what / who? I'm pretty sure Pierre was filling the role of manager for Henin, if for some reason your 'no wrong' was to my post above yours...
