Her husband, Bernard d’Ormale, later confirmed the news about her health complications. He addressed the incident to Var-matin, and the transcripts were translated to English from French.

“It was around 9 a.m. when Brigitte had trouble breathing,” he told the outlet, adding that the ambulance “got the wrong” address in the first place. “[Her breathing] was stronger than usual but she did not lose consciousness. Let’s call it a moment of respiratory distraction.” he added.

“Like all people of a certain age, she can no longer bear the heat. It happens at 88 years old. She must not make useless efforts.” d’Ormale continued.

Brigitte Bardot was one of the most popular actresses in the ’50s and ’60s. However, she gave up on her acting career and fame as it seemed too much to handle. 

“No one can imagine how awful it was. A nightmare. I just couldn’t live like that anymore. I quit the films when I was 38 because I’d had it up to here, so I have no desire to go back.” she told Vogue Homme in 2012.

Brigitte Bardot sparked controversy several times, including when she made racist comments about the inhabitants of the French Indian Ocean island of Réunion. Moreover, her relationship with her son, Nicolas, was also controversial. In her autobiography, Brigitte recalled how she felt after she had given birth to the boy. “I started screaming, begging them to take him away from me. I never wanted to see him again,” she wrote, as noted here.
