Sébastien Cauet disputes these accusations. However, he has been removed from the NRJ antenna since November 23. “Suspension is a little more complex than that”begins by explaining Me Xavier Autain this evening on France 5. “Sébastien Cauet took the tide in the face and it is in agreement with NRJ that he says that it is undoubtedly necessary for the quality of his profession that he withdraws a little and can rest”he adds.

And I went online, like two years ago, and I had the misfortune of telling my team “still I find her super sexy” and I was told “but you realize, she is 15 or 16 years old, it’s shameful,” says Sébastien Cauet lightly.
“There is nothing wrong with the letter, but in the spirit we flirt a little with the limit”comments Pierre Lescure. “Do you have the feeling that this is an incrimination of ?”retorts Me Xavier Autain before adding: “He’s an entertainer so he makes people laugh with lots of things.
